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.


Watch: Halle Berry Issues Whiskey Challenge During ‘Kingsman’ Interview



Halle Berry proved she could hang with the fellas when she downed a glass of whiskey at Comic Con alongside her Kingsman: The Golden Circle co-stars. But don’t expect her to do that again.

“No more, no more,” she said after hilariously bolting from the room when we asked her if she’d drink another glass. “I will never [do it again], and no one lets me live down the fact that I did it either.”

According to Berry she was ill for three days after, but that didn’t stop her and Pedro Pascal from daring me to throw back a glass right before our interview.

Not one to turn down a challenge, I did it, and received a round of applause and high fives before preceding to discuss the duo’s roles and why they decided to join the cast of Kingsman.

“Matthew Vaughn’s version of these movies always interested me” explained Berry who is no stranger to spy flicks after starring in the James Bond film Die Another Day. “I was apart of the Bond series and I feel like this is similar but it’s also for the new generation.”

She continued, “Some of the elements are the same but I call it spy thriller 2.0, he takes it to the next level that no one else does right now.”

In the film Berry, Pascal, Jeff Bridges and Channing Tatum play members of the Statesmen – a U.S. Spy agency operating out of a Kentucky Bourbon distillery. Pascal told us he gained a newfound appreciation for men in suits, but still prefers his jeans.

“I play agent whiskey. I’m a southern gentlemen so I’m a little more buttoned up … I’m like the stateside version of those square pegs from across the pond,” he joked.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle hits theaters September 22.
