With that being said I’m going to say what Netflix didn’t which is the reason for this constant going back and forth along with the ridiculous Netflix boycott.
You ready, here it is…
You’re not relevant.
You’re not on top of your game like you was many years ago.
I truly believe this is what they wanted to say but they fucked up and said the silly shit of we don’t go based upon resumes, which is the reason why this has become a topic of discussion.
Now I understand what they offered may have been a slap in the face but I don’t know why she would compare herself to Amy Schumer. Mo’Nique has done many thing and has been acknowledged for by her many awards in which the non-funny Amy Schumer doesn’t even come close too.
I like to give credit when it’s due and I can say that yea the amount Amy was given was a lot and yes Netflix went to far and could have cut it on half and she still would have performed. In addition saying that Amy was big for that year and she deserved it but honestly I beg to differ.
I think Netflix has a list of things they are looking for before they start offering comedy specials. You can’t just walk in there and not have at least thought “hey maybe I should deflate my ego and be realistic about what I have done in the past 5 to 10 years and not look at it collectively.”
For us regular folks when we are completing our resume we only put our previous work experiences that spans from 5-10 years because putting every previous work history is not going to be relevant now from what you’ve done 20 years ago.
So if that is the case what has Mo’Nique done in the past 5-10 period that all constantly keep our eyes on her…
… I’m waiting. Seriously!
Outside of the movie Precious (2009) and Almost Christmas (2016) there wasn’t much done in between. As for comedy shows I’m sure there have been some but none that was like “damn that Mo’Nique comedy show was fucking funny I gotta go again.”
So if we was to look at the info available on IMDB and Wikipedia as for completing a resume for 10 years then it will be more on the lines like yea the amount Netflix offered was about right. Using the same resources for Amy, uh she has shown to have done more. Especially things related to her comedic craft. To which again I don’t find funny but many of us know why.
So since that is the case we can say that “IF” Netflix was looking at their resumes of shit they each done in 10 years then it obvious of a clear winner.
Ok now let’s see if we can play the Race card, oops we can’t because of Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock.
Ok let so let’s stick with the gender card and for all women because since the Women’s March last January and just this past weekend we need to stick together. Yea you’re right but let’s be honest with ourseleves had Tiffany Haddish been offered to do a Netflix special she would’ve been paid the amount she was asking.
Why? You ask oh I don’t know because she is relevant.
I’m not hating on anyone I just sometime wish people would look at reality and stop the expectation and then when they realize that both reality and expectations aren’t aligning then they start yelling how unfairly they were treated and now it’s not justified.
I can’t stand so called adults that act like 3 year olds. Grow up.
