Mo’Nique has settled her lawsuit against Netflix after claiming the streaming service refused to negotiate with her for a proposed 2017 comedy special. She accused the company of discrimination and making a low offer.
Michael Parks told the Hollywood Reporter, “The matter has been amicably resolved.” Netflix has not made a comment.
According to court filings, both sides decided to dismiss the issue. The terms of the deal were not made known.
In 2018, Monique called for a boycott of Netflix after they refused to negotiate a $500,000 offer for a one-hour comedy special that gave the company ownership rights to the show. She accused Netflix of underpaying Black women and allegedly negotiating with other comedians that are paid 26 times more than what she was offered.
Chicago’s Chance The Rapper picked sides in the Mo’Nique and Netflix war. The hip-hop star voiced his support for the comedian amid shots and accusations fired off at the streaming giant about unfair treatment.
Hollywood superstar Jada Pinkett Smith also came to Mo’s defense amid boycott backlash.
