Mo’Nique Continues to Defend Roseanne Barr

Animated GIF

Back in July comedian Mo’Nique was one of the few to come forward defending Roseanne Barr after she sent a racist Tweet about former Obama White House staffer Valerie Jarrett.

Mo’Nique stands by her word…

…in her latest interview with The Chicago Tribune

…That’s why, when people turned on my sister Roseanne Barr, I couldn’t do it. Because there were black entertainers who would not come on “The Mo’Nique Show” because it was quote-unquote “too black.” But when I called on my sista, she said (imitating Barr): “Where is it and what time you need me to come?”

And when she showed up, when the cameras weren’t rolling, she said to me: “Listen, you’re the real deal. Don’t let them use you up and take advantage of you, because they will. Don’t you let them do that to you.”

Now, a racist woman ain’t gonna say that to me.

Q: But her tweets were blatantly racist. 

A: I’m gonna say this: We’re comedians. And I know her. And what she thought was funny, as a comedian, that’s what it was.

Q: But wait, you challenged Charlamagne because you felt he was putting poison out into the community. You could argue that Roseanne, regardless of her intentions — and I would argue that her intentions didn’t feel humorous, they felt pretty dark — was putting poison out into the world. 

A: When we talked privately — and we’ve talked privately a lot — she’ll break her jokes down and I’ll know where they’re coming from. She’s like, “Listen, you know how I grew up, so how could I start making fun of anybody? I’m not trying to hurt anybody.”.

Has she ever said, “Kill black people”?

Q: I don’t think that’s the line someone has to cross in order for their words to be racist. 

A: And I can’t argue with what you’re saying — I can’t, baby! But here’s what I know about this woman: She was behind the scenes fighting for the black (concert) promoters. Nobody knows that. She’s behind the scenes trying to push a documentary about Malcolm X with a brother who’s a Muslim.

So when I know about this these things personally, did my sista say some things in poor taste? Some people could say yes. But what I won’t label her is a racist. When she sends me a DM that says, “My love, we will rise again like the Phoenix” — a racist woman wouldn’t do that, would she?

Mo’Nique Addresses Katt Williams & Kevin Hart Beef On Power 106

Animated GIF

Mo’Nique she stopped by Power 106 for an exclusive interview with The Cruz Show, and literally lit up the whole station! During the 10-minute conversation, The Mo’Nique Show host broke down the most notable comedians of each decade, including Bill Cosby, Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy, Martin Lawrence, etc.

Mini Cliff Notes.

  • Mo’Nique talks about Nicki Minaj and Cardi B at the 6:29 mark.
  • Mo’Nique talks about Kevin Hart, Tiffany Haddish and Katt Williams drama at the 7:54 mark.
  • “What I say is they are All my babies. And, they are ALL funny as hell. And. everybody got to go through there journey. And, I have a hard time speaking on everyone’s dynamics when you don’t know it fully. Because, I know what it is for people to speak on my dynamics. but they don’t fully know ow it and everybody starts basing their opinions of what I am and what I’m not. So, what I wan’t do is do the same to my babies. For, Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish ya’ll make sure that movie goes through the got dag on roof this weekend. Ya’ll out there go support that brother let’s NOT allow society make us fight one another. We’re so talented all in our own right.

She also feels strongly about the fact that there is room for everybody to eat, and get a “piece of the pie.”

#PressPlay. Katt Williams Goes In On Tiffany Haddish, Kevin Hart, Jerrod Carmichael, And More On V-103

Animated GIF

Morning, Emmy-winning actor/comedian Katt Williams lit up the airwaves, sharing nuclear-hot takes on some of today’s top comedians, including Tiffany Haddish, Kevin Hart, Jerrod Carmichael and Hannibal Buress. Watch as Williams calls some ugly, questions others’ talents, and suggests that race and colorism play roles in who Hollywood hires and why.

  • At the beginning of the interview, Katt Williams talks about his comedy stand up special and the business side of comedy.
  • At the 3:30 mark, Katt Williams talks about Netflix deal. “I’m on my 15 consecutive 100-city tour on the exact day that Mo’Nique was asking for a Neflix boycott. Netflix had cut me a check for $2 million for a special that I got paid $300,000 to do. Or, I’m really good at jokes you tell me.
  • At the 4:39 mark, Katt Williams reacts to Tiffany Haddish’s Netflix deal.
  • Katt Williams explains, “Everybody has to understand Netflix doesn’t have an opinion on stand up comedy. They base on what they pay you by the amount of ticket sales for your last tour. So, Monique last tour had $316,000 tickets, therefore that’s what she got offered. My last tour had $2.4 million…tickets, so that’s what they offered. People understand it’s not personal. They can just for free take they ass to work and get their numbers up. Netflix don’t call nobody. That’s the joke . Katt Williams impersonates Mo’Nique “Netflix ain’t giving me….” First of all, Netflix ain’t call you. Knock it off! Is Coca Cola knocking on people doors to see what type of beverage they having today?
  • At the 5:59 mark, Katt Williams says, “What else could they go by. What comedian don’t think everybody can’t wait for their next special… The fact of the matter is what makes great comedy is a 100-people talking the same time that you are talking. Are you saying something different from them people are saying? Because if you are you deserve a special and if you don’t you’re going to find out you’re not special.
  • “They’re going to let you do your special, Jerrod Carmichael, but nobody’s gonna watch it. They’re gonna let you be a star, Lil Rel, but you’re ugly and white people don’t believe in ugly stars. They believe that you have to be somebody women want to sleep with and men want to be, but because we’re black they say ‘oh you don’t even deserve that.’ So we get Kevin Hart, Lil Rel, Jerrod Carmichael, Hannibal Burress, just dudes that no woman would talk to in Lennox Mall, but you’re making them superstars because you know ain’t nobody gonna sleep with them.”
  • Because we’re black you don’t even deserve that, so you get Kevin Hart, Lil Rel, Jerrod Carmichael, all in the row Hannibal Buress, dudes that no woman would talk to … let alone you making in movie stars. Why because you know ain’t nobody going to sleep with them?
  • Katt Williams talks about Tiffany Haddish at the 6:35 mark.
  • She’s been doing comedy since she was 16. You can’t tell me your favorite Tiffany Haddish joke. Why? Because she ain’t done a tour yet. She ain’t done a special. She has not proven the ability to tell jokes back to back for an hour to nobody,” Williams said.He took things further with some bold accusations about the reason she’s has been so successful. “They like her because she wanna sleep with a white man. That’s why the only thing she said was I wanna give it to Brad Pitt. She said she’s got a diseased vajayjay ain’t nobody checking for that,” he added.
  • Katt Williams supports Luenell at the 9:12 mark.
