The Academy Award-winning comedian compared Charlamagne Tha God to a character in "Birth of A Nation" saying the title devalues women. https://t.co/KK9szaH13T— MadameNoire (@MadameNoire) February 24, 2018
Charlamagne gave Mo’nique the “Donkey of the Day” title (a segment in which the host selects a person who has recently taken a major “L” and quickly roasts them for their failures).
Mo’nique didn’t take to kindly to the title, and recently visited the morning show to defend her stance.
“What you’re saying to the community is, as Black women, you’re devalued. And if you stand up and you make a stand and you say ‘We need equality’ and we have to say what’s right and what’s fair. And then a brother that looks like me from South Carolina [says] that ‘[I’m] the Donkey of the Day,’ you [Charlamagne] have to explain that to the community.”
“You know what, brotha? You’re going to hear yourself a lot from me lately. You’re going to hear yourself around the world. We have to explain brothas like you, we do. And, when we watched that movie Birth of a Nation and we saw that man walk his wife into that master’s house, we watched him walk his wife in. Then we watched him go back and get ’em— you’re that brotha.”
