50 Cent asks Oprah Winfrey, Tyler Perry to apologize to Mo'Nique, plans to 'put her back on'
50 Cent said that Tyler Perry has no problem with Mo'Nique and he has never 'told anyone not to hire' her
50 Cent stated that he has discussed Mo'Nique with Tyler Perry and that the filmmaker stated that he has no problem with the actress. He wrote on Instagram, “I talk to Tyler today he told me he never told anyone not to hire @therealmoworldwide and he is happy i decided to work with her. He said he couldn’t speak for Oprah but he is sure she is fine with monique and has even brought her up for things monique has no idea about. I’m so happy for Mo right now!”
This revelation came after 50 Cent asked Oprah Winfrey and Tyler Perry to apologize to Mo'Nique for allegedly undermining her career. On Monday (14 March), the rapper shared a video on Instagram in which he alleged that the comedian had been blackballed from Hollywood following her ‘Best Supporting Actress’ Oscar win for her appearance in Precious in 2010.
In the post’s caption, 50 Cent wrote, “I’m sure Oprah Winfrey and Tyler Perry would not want to continue to allow there influence to damage @therealmoworldwide career and this has gone on for way to long. So now would be a great time to apologize because i’m gonna put her back on. 🤔GLG🚦GreenLighGang 🎯I don’t miss! #bransoncognac”
Previously, Mo'Nique appeared on ‘Turnt Out with TS Madison’ in February and discussed a phone call she had with Perry during which the filmmaker purportedly apologized to her. Perry denied meeting with Mo'Nique in person after the phone call, except under two conditions: they meet without her husband/manager, and she apologizes to him. Mo'Nique went on to explain why she thinks the conflict between her and Perry has lasted this long.
She said at the time, “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.’ See, I can give you their names: Eartha Kitt. I can give you their names: Hazel Scott. I can give you their names: Fannie Lou Hamer. I can give you their names: Hattie McDaniel. All of those women took a stand, and all of those women left here heartbroken, unhealthy, looking at a community saying, ‘Y’all know I’m right, but why won’t anybody say anything?’”
