Mo’Nique Calls Roseanne Her ‘Sister in Comedy’

Mo’Nique gave an interview and defended Roseanne Barr after she called Valerie Jarrett a “monkey.”

“I remember when I had the ‘Mo’Nique Show,’ and there were big, major black superstar talent that had white representatives and they told their talent, ‘That show is too black and we really don’t want you to go on there […] But there was a white woman named Roseanne Barr that showed up for me. … And they didn’t hear the conversation when the cameras wasn’t rolling. … That woman was giving me some beautiful words.”

Mo’Nique called Barr her “sister in comedy” and said her infamous tweet was a mistake, saying she wouldn’t “put (Barr) on the racist list.”

“My sister made a mistake and she said something I know she wishes she could take back,” Mo’Nique said. “But what I would ask is we don’t throw her away.”

  1. Black people are always standing up for someone white in trouble..
    Where was Roseanne when you were fighting for more money?
    She was enjoying her lily white self and didn’t give a hoot about your dumb arse..

    • Frfr I feel you but I do t agree with the first part, “Black people are always standing up for someone white in trouble” I could care less about some white lady in jail let alone just this situation. But I totally agree with everything else that you said.

  2. A lot of black people took up for Monique and some cancelled their Netflix subscription.
    Get your facts straight, I wasn’t posting about black people.
    I was posting about Roseanne and that’s a fact

  3. What YT says when no one can hear but you doesn’t count Monique! That was then, this is now.
    How is she your sister? Does she share what you do? Not even the comedy Monique!

  4. I liked the fat Moneek. Once she did that abominable movie and won that award she changed.
    They rewarded her for a despicable character and it was her first and last attempt at that type of awful role. Thank goodness!

  5. I guess she will get the green light on whatever she has in the works now, smh…

  6. Everyone saying Precious was an abomination but that kind of shyt really happens. There are black women who really treat their kids this way. There are sick black men who really rape their children.

    • Frfr 100% agree but there a white women that treat their kids like this and white made that rape kids it’s not just black people.

    • There you go again… , only a women would phrase the posts like you do. Stop posting as a dude.
