Mo’Nique Reportedly Settles Discrimination Lawsuit With Netflix

Mo’Nique continues to win, last month Mo settled her lawsuit against Netflix after claiming the streaming service refused to negotiate with her for a proposed 2017 comedy special. 

She accused the company of discrimination and making a low offer.

Michael Parks told the Hollywood Reporter, “The matter has been amicably resolved.” Netflix has not made a comment.

According to court filings, both sides decided to dismiss the issue. The terms of the deal are currently unknown.

In 2018, Monique boycotted Netflix after they refused to negotiate a $500,000 offer for a one-hour comedy special. She claimed Netflix underpays Black women and dealt with other comedians who are paid 26 times more than her.
