Mo'Nique just joined an even smaller club than than the Academy Award winners group she already belongs to ... people who want to give Ray Rice a second chance.
The "Precious" star was on "Good Day L.A." on FOX 11 this week and when asked about the Rice situation, showed a tidal wave of support for Rice -- more than any other big star has so far.
"A lot of people are saying get rid of him ... in our worst moments we would want empathy."
Check out the video -- Mo'Nique also had glowing things to say about Rice's wife ... explaining why she thought there was "beauty" in Janay forgiving Ray.
