Actress and comedian Mo’Nique made headlines hours ago when she urged her fans to boycott Netflix after she accused the streaming platform of gender and racial bias when it comes to compensation.

However, many of her fans and followers on social media disagreed with her. They feel, apparently, that Mo’Nique doesn’t have the star power she feels she has.

Mo’Nique was quick to respond to this criticism too.

    Mo’Nique has always been selfish with her activism. It always comes down to her own pockets.

      When Rosa Parks sat down in the front of the bus that day, it was because HER feet hurt. However, her “selfish activism” helped all of us didn’t it? Black people have to want more. Stop settling.

    I’m not boycotting Netflix. Good luck to her though.

    Mess. Mo’Nique still doesn’t realize that her biggest setback is her husband. Does she think she’s the only black woman who is underpaid and low balled? We all go through it. Famous or not. Taraji is out here getting booked left and right and she’s underpaid. But what did she do? Well she’s executively producing films so she can actually open doors for other black actresses. The more experience she gets, the more likely she can keep making movies and hire other black women and actually pay them well! Burning bridges isn’t helping Mo’Nique or black actresses at all. You learn the game and exploit it to advance you and your people. Why doesn’t Mo’Nique understand that?

    Monique I thought you were smarter than this. Get your paper, hustle hard, build and keep getting money. As long as you are complaining and causing problems you are not going to get what you want.

    MoNique gets on my last nerves but I can’t be mad at her for wanting to be paid more when basic white comedians like Amy Schumer make millions and aren’t even funny. But what she has to remember is Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock are both a rarity. Black people as a whole are underpaid in every industry, including Hollywood.

    People need to do their research. What’s happening to Mo’Nique is happening to black women everywhere. Somebody brought up Taraji but she ain’t getting paid either. And it’s not ok.

    UB you should do a post on her interview with Sway. That will make a lot of people retract what they are saying. We should all demand more. Time to stop settling for mediocrity. I stand with Mo.

    It’s so funny how some of these folks on here say they won’t boycott Netflix, but they’ll boycott H&M, Houston’s, Target, Walmart, and any other organization that offends us. People and their selective pro-blackness/activism kills me sometimes. Monique may be a bit abrasive, but she has a point here. I guess Netflix n chill is too much for some of us to sacrifice.
