50 Cent is doubling down on his efforts to help Mo’Nique get back on top in Hollywood and wants her to get some apologies.
According to Complex, the rapper-turned-TV producer took to his Instagram (as he is wont to do) and wrote about how he felt Mo’Nique’s industry nemeses, Tyler Perry, Oprah, and Lee Daniels, need to apologize to her for their alleged wrongdoings. In his post, he reposted a video from HotNewHipHop that covered 50 Cent’s prior remarks about Mo’Nique’s battle in Hollywood.
As we reported recently, the rapper wrote on Instagram about how Mo'Nique needs to be back in high demand.
“I Gotta get @therealmoworldwide back in pocket,” he wrote at the time. “We only supposed to cancel s–t that ain’t good for the culture. we need you to WIN again now MONIQUE.”
This time, however, the rapper went further, writing, “I’m sure Oprah Winfrey and Tyler Perry would not want to continue to allow [their] influence to damage @therealmoworldwide career and this has gone on for way too long. So now would be a great time to apologize because I’m gonna put her back on.” He also added, “I don’t miss,” regarding his ability to create an iconic brand, such as his Power series and his congac brand.
Mo'Nique has recently talked about her ongoing feud with the three Hollywood heavyweights on Turnt Out with Ts Madison, voicing her opinion on how society tends to ignore what Black women say until it's too late.
“Oftentimes when it comes to a Black woman speaking up and speaking out, it goes unheard until she dies. Then once she dies, then we go back and say, ‘Well, she was right,’ and ‘Let’s make a movie about it.'” she said. “See, I can give you their names,” she added, listing Eartha Kitt, Hazel Scott, Fannie Lou Hamer and Hattie McDaniel.
“All of those women took a stand, and all of those women left here heartbroken, unhealthy, looking at their community saying, ‘Y’all know I’m right but why won’t anybody say anything?'”
