Netflix sued by comedian wanting Chappelle money

Looks like Netflix are being sued, again!

This time by Mo’Nique, a comedian who won a supporting actress Oscar for her role in Precious. Very impressive!

The issue, Mo’Nique is claiming discrimination after she was low-balled with a $500,000 offer back in 2018. Here’s a recent statement.

“I had a choice to make: I could accept what I felt was pay discrimination or I could stand up for those who came before me and those who will come after me. I chose to stand up.”

Let’s dig into this pay discrimination a little more.

Cold hard truths, my precious

It’s not racial discrimination. Netflix paid Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock $20 million each for their comedy specials. So Mo’Nique’s beef must be a gender thing…

Wrong!

Amy Schumer got paid $13 million and in an interview where she described her negotiation with Netflix, she said this.

“I believe women deserve equal pay. However I don’t believe I deserve equal pay to Chris and Dave. They are legends and two of the greatest comics of all time.”

I’m no fan of Amy Schumer, but that’s a drop mic moment in my opinion. Speak the truth!

So, let’s get this 100% right. Amy Schumer, a female comedian selling out stadiums, who isn’t a comedy legend gets paid big by Netflix. $13 million is big by anyone’s standards.

So, is this entire discrimination lawsuit just Mo’Nique wanting more than Netflix’s $500,000 offer? If so, that’s not discrimination, that’s a business decision. They think her comedy is worth $500,000.

And if I’m wrong, the next time you think you’re worth $20 million and your boss doesn’t, sue them!

Not Netflix’s first lawsuit

This isn’t Netflix’s first rodeo. Their dealings are often big news, like these:

In terms of their legal situations, though, here are some highlights:

Lawyers portrayed in Netflix’s The Laundromat filed for defamation. It would have been better to scrap the movie, as it only got 44 percent by reviewers on Rotten Tomatoes.

Then there’s Chooseco, a “Choose Your Own Adventure” book company that said the Bandersnatch episode of Black Mirror tarnished their trademark forever. They should have thanked Netflix — talk about great promotion!

And finally, Netflix’s big L on the scorecard. They settled with a Satanic Temple! That’s right. Netflix was sued for the likeness of a winged, half-man, half-goat statue. Don’t ask…

It’s amazing what trouble a teenage witch can get you into.
