Mo'Nique Accuses Netflix of Undervaluing Black Women, Demands Boycott
Mo'Nique vs. NetflixThey Lowballed My Negotiations'Cause I'm a Black Woman

Mo'Nique claims Netflix severely short-changed her during negotiations for a comedy special ... and she says the proof is in how much some other comedians got paid for specials.
The Oscar winner told us Friday ... Netflix offered her $500k, but she rejected the offer in light of the fact Amy Schumer, Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock pocketed eight figures. Mo'Nique's not just walking away from the table though ... she's now calling for a boycott of Netflix.
She strongly believes this is case of racism and sexism -- especially because she'd stack her resume in comedy up against anyone else.
Netflix says it does not comment on contract negotiations.
