Comedienne Mo’Nique Says Oprah, Tyler Perry, and Lee Daniels Blackballed Her From Hollywood

Mo’Nique is not backing down from the comments she made about Lee Daniels, Tyler Perry and Oprah Winfrey

Over the weekend, Mo went in on the entertainment moguls during her standup show at the Apollo Theater. In a video posted to Instagram, she accused all three of them of black balling her from Hollywood, and she capped it off by saying they could “suck [her] ***, if [she] had one.”

Most people might be rethinking their actions and walking back their words a couple days later for the sake of saving face, but not Mo’Nique.

In a chat with TMZ, Mo insisted on standing up in her truth. “Everything I say comes from my heart. I’m unapologetic about it,” Mo’Nique told TMZ.

Her husband Sidney Hicks is also standing by her words about getting black balled after Precious came out. “Lee Daniels was a part of it,” Sidney reiterated, “but Tyler Perry, Oprah Winfrey–if you remember–were a part of the production of the movie.”

In his estimation, their decision to remain quiet on rumors that Mo’Nique is a diva on the set was just as damaging to her reputation as gossiping about her.
