Celebrity News And Gossip: Mo’Nique Tells Fans Not To Taunt Steve Harvey After He Loses Two TV Spots
Steve Harvey, 62, isn’t enjoying his career so much at the moment. He recently lost his talk show spot to Kelly Clarkson and his ‘Little Big Shots’ hosting gig to Melissa McCarthy. Since then, Mo’Nique’s fans have been taunting him and celebrating his downfall. However, the comedienne wants them to stop.
The former host had chastised Mo’Nique when she appeared on the Steve Harvey show while she was defending her decision to stand up for what she believed in. This was after the ignominious failure in which she asked black people to boycott Netflix due to their lowball offer for a comedy special. Harvey tried explaining to Mo’Nique that ‘this is a money game’ and insinuated that she should stop her fight for equality before she completely loses out. He then explained his priorities.
‘If I crumble, my children crumble, my grandchildren crumble! I can not, for the sake of my integrity, stand up here and let everybody that’s counting on me crumble, so I can make a statement.’
All this while, Mo’Nique sat unimpressed as Harvey continued.
‘Your husband can’t be the Sidney that he really is out here! That flexin’—we’ve got to flex a different way. This the money game, this ain’t the black man’s game, this ain’t the white man’s game, it’s the money game.’
Black Twitter roasted Steve Harvey for being a ‘coon’ and a ‘sell out’. They think his recent cancellations is punishment for treating his colleague so badly.
However, Mo’Nique has called on her fans cut him some slack. She said;
‘We do not celebrate what appears to be someone else’s demise. We do not stand and applaud and say ‘Yeah, look what’s happening,’ ‘That’s what you get.’ That’s not where we’re coming from. That’s not a stance we’ve ever taken. So what I would ask y’all to do…we gotta love our folks through it.’
