Netflix Moves To Dismiss Mo’Nique’s Racial Discrimination Lawsuit

Netflix has decided to fire back at comedian Mo’Nique’s lawsuit which accuses them of discrimination.

According to new legal documents obtained by The Blast, the streaming service is now moving to dismiss her lawsuit. As we previously reported, Mo’Nique accused them of only offering her $500,000 for a comedy special while they reportedly paid millions to other male and white female comedians. Her suit stated, “Despite Mo’Nique’s extensive résumé when presented with an opportunity to do an exclusive stand-up comedy special for Netflix, she was given a low-ball offer that was only a fraction of what Netflix paid other comedians.”

In newly filed documents, Netflix says,

“Plaintiff fails, however, to allege any facts showing that the compensation offered her was the product of discrimination. To the contrary, her Complaint contradicts its core premise by noting that other persons of color, other women, and another African- American woman (like Plaintiff) have been paid substantially more money to create comedy specials for Netflix’s streaming service than what was offered to Plaintiff. And Plaintiff fails to explain why she was entitled to be offered what the stars to whom she compares herself were offered for creating such comedy specials, ” The Blast quotes.

Netflix claims they have proof that the comedian was not discriminated against by them. In addition to that, they’re asking the court to dismiss the majority of her claims entirely.
