Comedian DeRay Davis had his opinion on Mo’Nique’s call to boycott Netflix. As many know, Mo called for the boycott as negotiations fell through with the popular streaming platform. During an interview with Sway’s Universe, Mo explained the situation and how Netflix was unwilling to up their initial $500,000 offer.
Amid Mo’Nique going viral over this call to action, fellow comedian Wanda Sykes revealed Netflix offered her less than $250,000 for a comedy special of her own.
However, not all are lending their support to Mo’Nique. This includes comedian DeRay Davis, who has his own Netflix Special. While on a Baller Alert post on the subject, DeRay left a shade-filled comment criticizing. Within the comment, he revealed he received $5 million from Netflix, and jokingly said he should ask for $12 million next time.
Some people called him out for the comment, to which led DeRay to further post on the topic via Instagram and Twitter.
In a now deleted post, DeRay says to leave him out of the controversy. He claims he never spoke on anyone else’s check and he worked hard to be paid what he received.
UPDATE: Jada Pinkett-Smith is once again making it clear that she is Team Mo’Nique. Check out her tweets below.
