Mo'Nique calls out Oprah, Tyler Perry in blackball accusations

Since winning an Oscar in 2010 for her devastating performance as an abusive mother in Lee Daniels's film Precious, Mo'Nique has acted in just four films. I was whiteballed by some black d*cks who had no balls.

But while she was doing a comedy routine at the time, she and husband Sidney Hicks insisted that what she said was absolutely the truth and that both Oprah and Perry had participated in Daniels' campaign to "blackball" her and label her as "difficult to work with".

Acknowledging the outrageous nature of what she was saying, Mo'Nique says, "I know they about to say "Mo'Nique, you talk too mother**king much", [but] it would kill me not to say the real shit". "But I sat down with somebody I respected ... and they were a person enough to tell me to my face, 'You are blowing this!"

And while one might think that a person who basically tells Oprah Winfrey to suck a fat one would want to reel it in, Mo'Nique is not one to be scared of what anybody has to say.

Mo'Nique may have an Academy Award on her mantle but she is still that potty-mouthed woman from the Def Comedy Jam days. Fast forward to this past weekend when the actress and stellar comedian did a standup show at the Apollo Theater. It would "kill" me not to say the real sh*t.

Mo'Nique told host Sway Calloway that a year ago, "Empire" executive producer and writer Lee Daniels called her saying, "You got the role, but you know, there's some technical stuff - I ain't never done TV before, so you gotta go through the technical part".




However, while sitting down with Don Lemon in 2015, Daniels claimed that Mo'Nique had gotten herself blackballed.

Perry and Winfrey served as executive producers on Daniels' Precious.

"I consider her a friend", Daniels said at the time.

Since Precious, Mo'Nique has starred in Almost Christmas, Blackbird, Steppin: The Movie, Interwoven and Bessie.

Daniels has previously said that Mo'Nique was responsible for her own blackballing with "reverse racism". "However, the consensus among the creative teams and power thus far were to go another way with these roles". I have and will always think of her for parts that we can collaborate on.

"She's brilliant, and I like working with brilliant people".
