Mo’Nique has disturbed the spirits of black people everywhere by asking them to forgive Roseanne after she compared a black woman to a monkey.
Mo’s confusing statement below..
When people turned on my sister Roseanne Barr, I couldn’t do it. Because there were Black entertainers who would not come on The Mo’Nique Show because it was quote-unquote ‘too Black.’ But when I called on my sister, she said (imitating Barr): ‘Where is it and what time you need me to come?’ And when she showed up, when the cameras weren’t rolling, she said to me: ‘Listen, you’re the real deal. Don’t let them use you up and take advantage of you, because they will. Don’t you let them do that to you.’ Now, a racist woman ain’t gonna say that to me.
Barr’s latest racist antic saw her show ‘Roseanne’ pulled off ABC and her character killed off much to the delight of those her actions and remarks have offended over the years.
Is Mo wrong?
