*You can put fellow funny lady Wanda Sykes down as having Mo’Nique‘s back as far as calling out Netflix and supporting her (Mo’s)  boycott idea against the network.

The actress/comedian revealed that Netflix offered her a lot less less than the $500,000 Mo’Nique was offered.

“@MoWorldWide, thank you for speaking out,” Sykes tweeted. “@Netflix offered me less than half of your $500k. I was offended but found another home. #EPIX.”

We wish she had, but Sykes, 53, didn’t share more details about her discussions with Netflix, but followers were quick to put their two cents in.

“Whoa. I’m glad u shed some light on what Monique was talking about with Netflix,” said one person. “It’s a damn shame Netflix be low balling women of color. But will pay another woman of a different race more. It has nothing to do with relevance. U and Mo’Nique put in the years and deserve the $.”

On Sunday morning, Mo’Nique, 50, who won an Oscar in 2010 for “Precious,” shared a quick Instagram video  with the caption, “To my beautiful sisters, when they tell you no, you must keep telling yourself yessss. Love yall.”

As we reported, earlier this week Mo’Nique asked her fans to boycott Netflix after alleging the company is guilty of color bias and racial bias. Her problem specific with the streaming service, she says is because Netflix offered comedians like Amy Schumer and Dave Chappelle $11 million and $20 million for comedy specials while only offering her, a Black woman, $500,000.
