Whoopi Goldberg Loses Her Cool On Mo’Nique For Beefing With Celebrities

The ladies got into it on “The View.”

Published February 24th

Mo'Nique stopped by morning panel talk show The View on Thursday to share with the ladies her stance on the now viral Netflix debacle she's been promoting. 

However, while speaking on her grievances with former business partners Lee Daniels, Oprah Winfrey and Tyler Perry, the Oscar-winning actress was met with some major criticism from lead co-host Whoopi Goldberg.

The awkward moment was introdued when the Precious star expounded on how she was allegedly betrayed by Daniels, Winfrey and Perry after she refused to promote the 2009 drama, overseas. 

After Mo'Nique brought up some payment discrepancies about the extensive promo trail, Goldberg interjected, making it clear that she was having none of her excuses.

"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," she said. "And we've had this conversation, and I said if you had called me, I could've schooled you on what was expected."

However, Mo'Nique reverted the coversation to her Netflix boycott over unequal pay, specifying her former acquaintances' involvements in allegedly sabotaging her career.

"What Tyler Perry showed me, Lee Daniels, Oprah Winfrey and [Precious studio] Lionsgate is that, 'When you don't do what we ask you to do, we will take your livelihood,'" she said.

"So, for eight years, my family has suffered and my career has suffered because I would not allow those entities to bully me," she continued. "And because I did not allow the bullying to happen, this is what I sit in."

In response, Goldberg threw her hands up in frustration and shook her head before they went to commercial break.
