This week, we’re talking about Mo’Nique and her request for us to boycott Netflix. This began with Mo’Nique alleging that she’s not getting offered the same pay as white and male comedians. “I am asking that you stand with me and boycott Netflix for gender bias and color bias,” she said in a video posted on Instagram. “I was offered a $500,000 deal last week to do a comedy special. However, Amy Schumer was offered $11 million, Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle $20 million.” Now, we both had different views on whether or not she deserves this treatment and we definitely went into detail about why we feel the way we do. In a broader sense, though, we talked about pay equality and debated the idea of the gender pay gap. Does it really exist or is it something more complex?
