Well isn’t this ironic.
Mo’Nique has spent that past month encouraging folks to boycott Netflix because of the offensive $500k the streaming service offered her for a comedy special. Now, it’s being reported that Mo owes the IRS a cool $560k.
According to AJC, the major sum comes after having a tax lien filed against her from 2013-2015.
Now, we aren’t mathematicians, but if the comedienne would just agree to Netflix’s terms, she would be well on her way to paying the IRS their coins.
The Academy Award winner made a huge fuss last month over the offer because folks like Dave Chappelle and Amy Schumer earned much more. Chappelle and Chris Rock copped a whopping $20 million each for their specials and Amy Schumer banked a cool $11M out the gate for hers.
According to the actress, her resume is loaded AND she’s the most “decorated” comedienne in the business. Therefore, she deserves more than a half million.
Sound off: Should Mo’Nique accept Netflix’s offer even though it completely goes against what she is currently standing for?
