Oprah Winfrey may be loved by people all over the world, but there are a few individuals who are not her biggest fans — including the comedian, Mo ‘Nique.
Over the years, Mo ‘Nique has not been afraid to voice her ill feelings for the former talk show host and has undoubtedly done so on more than one occasion.
While we thought Mo ‘Nique and Winfrey ax would have buried and improved so far, it seems that these two are somewhere close to finding a silver layer.
Their dispute started back in 2009
Before things hit the fan, Mo ‘Nique and Winfrey were excellent friends and established a close bond with each other over their openness about having been sexually harassed by family members.
The celebrities then went on to work together on the 2009 film Anmol, and the comedian also thanked the media mogul in his acceptance speech when he won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress.
Although it did not appear that there was any bad blood between these two women, Mo ‘Nick revealed in a video that his relationship with Winfrey took a turn after the film’s release.
The two-stars feud first came back to light in 2009 when Mo’nique made a periscope video with her husband, Sydney Hicks, to discuss her beef with Winfrey in full detail.
During the video, Mo ‘Nick shared that Oprah Winfrey called her one day and asked if she could invite her brother Gerald to her show to discuss the comedian’s allegations of molestation.
The Parkers star recalled Winfrey saying, “I got a call from your brother, brother who beat you up, Gerald.” He wants to know if he can come to the show. And before I agree to have him come on the show, I need to get your approval to call you.
According to Mo ‘Nique, he was allowed to talk to Winfrey, his brother, but did not know the media mogul also invited his parents to the show, which he was “not on good terms with.”
“Oprah Winfrey told me, ‘I am your mother,’ I would have said, ‘Shut that sh * t down, because I don’t want the world to see my mother, being so greedy on money that she does anything Is ready to go on his show, ‘ he continued.
Mo ‘Nique claims Oprah made her “life difficult”
Mo ‘Nique admits that he was shocked when he saw both of his parents on the show and goes on to confront Winfrey about this at an Oscar party in 2016.
While advising actress Lupita Nyong’o about being nominated for an Oscar nomination, Mo ‘Nick turned to Winfrey in front of a room full of people. He said, Sister, you and I have to chat.
The comedian then told Oprah — still in front of everyone — that she felt betrayed by him and was extremely upset that she went behind her back to invite her mother to the show.
After he was confronting Winfrey, Mo ‘Nique said the room was quiet before the talk show host said, “If you think I did something to offend you, I want to apologize.” “
In February 2014, Mo ‘Nique, in an interview, Steve Harvey, said that he had taken issue with the media mogul over the fact that he had lent a hand in the comedian “labeled as difficult” and eventually from the entertainment industry Blacklist ignited his dispute with Winfrey.
“I didn’t say some very powerful people. I didn’t say, Oprah Winfrey. I didn’t say no to Tyler Perry. They explained to Harvey, I didn’t say no to Lee Daniels, and I didn’t say Lionsgate.” And came in hard when people are. That looked like me — Oprah, Tyler, Lee, and I put my brother Steve on the list — you all knew I wasn’t wrong. “
The comedian recently called out Winfrey for the way he treated people.
Although Winfrey had apologized to Mo’nique in the past, the comedian still harbors some ill feelings for his former friend and makes that very clear with his latest social media posts.
In a lengthy ‘open letter’ to the talk show host shared on Instagram, Mo ‘Nick tells Winfrey the way he treats people who are accused of’ the same ‘crimes.
Mo ‘Nique reveals that she “felt compelled” to write this post after watching Oprah’s interview on CBS this morning, and the Mughal hearing says that she is being asked about Harvey Weinstein after every situation Tries to find a “silver layer.”
“You also said ‘if we do all this about Harvey Weinstein then we’ve lost the moment,'” writes Mo ‘Nique, before going on to decide to produce a #MeToo documentary on Slam Winfrey Russell Simmons. “When you’re either doing it, or Michael Jackson was going to be a part of the documentary, and Russell Simmons, how’s that not making it all about them?”
Mo ‘Nique then shares her “personal experience” with Winfrey by explaining how the former talk show has treated her in the past.
She explains, “You’ve seen me as a black woman, accusing it of being difficult for Lions Gate not to promote precious internationally, Lions Gate, Tyler Perry and, at your request, the fact Regardless, my deal was with Lee Daniels Entertainment. “How are you doing for black women when you hear Tyler on the audio saying I was right and he was going to talk, but you or him They also did not say a word? “
The comedian’s part is that he once wanted to be “just like” Winfrey and never thought that his perception of the talk show host would change until he saw how people, including himself, were being treated Was.
“My sixteen-year-old self did not know that in your silence in the face of unrighteousness, my life” would make it hard, “she wrote. Finally, please consider standing with people who are right and not just ‘right people’.
