Mo'Nique claims Netflix severely short-changed her during negotiations for a comedy special ... and she says the proof is in how much some other comedians got paid for specials.
The Oscar winner told us Friday ... Netflix offered her $500k, but she rejected the offer in light of the fact Amy Schumer, Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock pocketed eight figures. Mo'Nique's not just walking away from the table though ... she's now calling for a boycott of Netflix.
She strongly believes this is case of racism and sexism -- especially because she'd stack her resume in comedy up against anyone else.
Netflix says it does not comment on contract negotiations.
UPDATE: She elaborates on what happened with TMZ
While I do understand Mo'Niques point, Im not sure if this is the right way to go for her. The message is loud and clear and women of color in the entertainment industry have been fighting this battle for years. But I just don't think its a good look for HER. It almost reminds me of Janet Hubert from the "Fresh Prince of Belair. It almost like on no here we go again with another outburst. Hopefully things turn out the way MoNique wants and deserves but my question is will this stop her working in Hollywood for good now?
SN: WE NEED TO BOYCOTT NETFLIX FOR RAISING THAT PRICE!!!!!
