Outspoken comedienne Mo’Nique once claimed that after winning a Best Supporting Actress Oscar in 2010, her Precious director Lee Daniels had her blacklisted for failing to thank him during her acceptance speech.

Mo hasn’t let go of the grudge, and made sure to vent her frustrations during a Mother’s Day weekend stand-up show at the Apollo theater in Harlem.  She also expanded her targets to additional industry professionals, Oprah and Tyler Perry. Her message to the stars: “Suck my d*ck … if i had one.” Mo claims they, in tandem with Daniels, have had a part in her excommunicated from Tinseltown.

Check out the clip below that Mo’Nique uploaded with the hashtag #GoOff :

 

 

Daniels went on record back in 2015 during an interview with Don Lemon on CNN, admitting that Mo’Nique wasn’t completely wrong in her assumption, saying

“During the [Oscar] campaign, she was making unreasonable demands, and I remember thinking ‘This is when reverse racism happens.’ You have to thank the producers of the film, you have to thank the studio, and she didn’t understand that. People aren’t going to respond well. I love her, I’ve spoken to her. She’s brilliant, and I love working with brilliant people. Sometimes artists get in their own way — I know I certainly do often, I have my own demons. I think that there were demands that were made on the ‘Precious’ campaign that everyone knows hurt her. I told her that. You’ve gotta play ball. This is not just show — it is show business.”

Based on Mo’Nique’s recent Apollo performance, it doesn’t look like she’s willing to “play ball” anytime soon.

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
