Mo'Nique said that Netflix is "underestimating the black dollar". She believes Netflix lowballed her.
She was paid $50,000 for the film "Precious".
She fulfilled her contractual obligations, she "was done" and refused to go to Cannes to promote the film because it was not part of her contract and she would not get paid for going.
"This is what happens when you don't go up to that hotel room,"
Goldberg said : "I'm going to stop you because, contractually, when you make a movie, regardless of who you sign the deal with, your job is to go and promote said movie."
Mo'nique replied : "When you don't do what we ask you to do, we'll take your livelihood [the film executives said to her]. So for eight years my family has suffered and my career has suffered, because I would not allow those entities [Lionsgate, Winfrey, Daniels and Perry] to bully me. And because I did not allow the bullying to happen, this is what I sit in."
It ends with Goldberg throwing her hands up in the air and shaking her head.
