The Mo’Nique Oprah beef won’t be ending anytime soon.

During a recent interview to promote “A Wrinkle in Time,” Oprah was asked why she won’t respond to Mo’Nique’s allegations. Oprah referred to the situation as “negativity.” She also stated that the negativity isn’t worth the time.

As result of the interview, Mo’Nique clapped back at Oprah on Twitter.

    Yeah you’re not going to win with the public coming for Oprah. She’s Jesus to most black people.

    I love Oprah but I am starting to wonder if the black elites are maintaining the system they are supposed to be fighting against. Now I have my issues with MoNique, but it’s odd that Tyler, Lee, Oprah and Will aren’t doing much financially for black actors. They are kind of treating them like the white executives with the whole be thankful for the exposure approach.

      Tyler, Lee and Oprah are employing Black actors, placing Black shows with all-Black casts on their networks, working with Black directors and always providing a place for Black actors (especially unknowns who will never even be seen by the White mainstream) to work.

        You’re proving Viv’s point. Hiring black actors and directors is great, but if you’re going to pay them peanuts, that’s still keeping up the status quo. That’s basically saying black people should just be thankful for work and not push for pay equality. I don’t agree with that and Oprah, Tyler and Lee certainly aren’t above reproach.

          I may have misunderstood Viv’s point, then. Who said the Black powers that be are paying Black actors peanuts? The only time I’ve heard Mo’Nique reference her pay from one of them was when speaking of what she was paid for Precious. She said she didn’t have an issue with that amount since it was an indie film. Yes, they wanted her to go to Cannes to promote it without extra pay, but as we know from her exchange with Whoopi on The View, that’s industry standard. No matter how much you initially receive for a film, it’s expected that you will promote it at no additional charge. I thought Viv was saying the aforementioned powers weren’t doing much financially to help Black actors, which I countered that employing them was helping. I haven’t heard a discussion about them being paid peanuts. Viv, I apologize if I misunderstood you!

    MoNique better do something with all this publicity she’s been getting before everyone moves on to the next big controversy.

      I’m starting to think that’s the plan. I wouldn’t be surprised if she came out with a book or standup in the near future.

    Oprah is evil as hell. How does she not have time for the negativity when Lee Daniels already said that Oprah is the one who black listed Mo? Now is that not the freaking juggernaut of negativity? Making it so that someone can’t work again because they told you no and you didn’t like that one bit? Then to top it off, she has MoNique’s abuser on her show and didn’t even tell her she was having her mom on the show as well despite knowing how much that would hurt Mo. Oprah is problematic. She ends people when they don’t do what she says. That’s a scary person.

    Now Oprah is not going to go back and forth with MoNique in public so this answer is expected. But I do wish they could talk things out one day like Oprah did with Iyanla.

      That’s not going to happen unless MoNique apologizes and takes responsibility for her actions. I just don’t see her doing that.

    Mo’Nique and Oprah clearly have two different beliefs. Oprah believes in playing the game to win later and Mo’Nique believes in shaking the table to get what she believes she is owed. But the thing is, most won’t end up like Oprah. Especially as an actor. So I get the frustration Viola, Octavia and Mo’Nique have. Even when you get an Oscar, everyone still expects you to keep playing a game you may never win.

    So this is why Oprah is kissing Tiffany Haddish’s a-s right now.

    I love Oprah and agree with Mo’Nique’s message although I don’t like her approach most of the time. So I have no dog in this fight.

    It’s annoying how scared of Oprah people are. She’s a human being and should be called out for problematic behavior. Especially if people enjoying dragging MoNique for hers.

    I think Oprah needs to focus on promoting her new movie because I don’t think it’s going to do that well.

    Monique is ball of negativity, and Oprah is right not to allow herself to be pulled into that bad energy. Monique is black balling herself at this point. There are plenty of producers who would have worked with Monique regardless of what Oprah thinks, but Monique is digging herself deeper and deeper into a hole. Nobody is going to work with her now because they are going to be afraid of what she will go on social media and say about them if they piss her off.
