Netflix Reacts to Mo'Nique's Race and Gender Discrimination Lawsuit

The streaming giant denies the accusations by the 'Precious: Based on the Novel PUSH by Sapphire' actress and insists that their offer to her for a stand-up special was fair.

AceShowbiz - Netflix has vowed to fight Mo'Nique's discrimination lawsuit, insisting their offer to the Oscar-winning star for her comedy special was "fair."

In legal papers obtained by TMZ, the "Precious: Based on the Novel PUSH by Sapphire" star alleged bosses at the streaming service offered Amy Schumer $11 million for an hour-long stand-up special, while insisting a Mo'Nique show was only worth $500,000.

The actress and comedian turned down the offer and called on fans to boycott Netflix. She then made several other claims against bosses at the company, which highlight racial discrimination, and is suing for unspecified damages.

Responding to the lawsuit, a Netflix spokesperson said in a statement, "We care deeply about inclusion, equity, and diversity and take any accusations of discrimination very seriously. We believe our opening offer to Mo'Nique was fair - which is why we will be fighting this lawsuit."
