While heads are busy trying to figure out which actress bit Beyoncé in the face, they may have missed another jewel. Tiffany Haddish addressed Mo’Nique’s ill-fated called for a Netflix boycott. 

In the same GQ interview where Haddish spoke on partying with Bey, she also gave her thoughts on Mo’s struggle.

She brings up residuals again when our conversation turns to Netflix—specificallyMo’Nique’s call for a boycott of the streaming service in light of what the comedian described as “gender bias and color bias” in the paychecks offered to various comics for their stand-up specials. (A reported $20 million for Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock. A reported $11 million for Amy Schumer. And $500,000 for Mo’Nique, she says.)

“My business run different than her business,” says Haddish. “I don’t live her life. I don’t have that husband of hers. I’m looking at how [Netflix has] opened up so many opportunities for black females and comedy. When my people are dying, that’s when you gonna catch me protesting. I’m not gonna protest because somebody got offered not the amount of money they wanted to get offered. If you don’t like what they’re offering you, just no longer do business with them. If I protest Netflix—what about all the black shows that are on there? What about all the other actors that are working on there? All the Indians, the Hispanics, the Asians. My show, The Carmichael Show, airs on there right now. It ain’t on NBC.

Where is the lie?

Let us know what you think of Haddish’s take in the comments.
