Monique is STILL trying to get the world to join her in the boycott against Netflix. This whole thing started after Amy Schumer received $13 million for her Netflix special, but Monique was only offered $500,000. Netflix told Monique it was due to Amy’s popularity; she sold out Madison Square Garden twice and had a hit movie last year. Monique then went on to say she had a very good resume as well and even called herself the most decorated comedian alive.

Monique had some balls to have a statement like that come out of her mouth. And yes, Monique has been around for a long time putting in work, so here is a list of Monique’s Top 10 (not in order):
