Mo’Nique BLASTS OPRAH … Speaks Out Over Taraji Henson’s Color Purple ‘Disrespect’!

Taraji Henson’s latest film, The Color Purple, is flopping badly at the box office, at least in part because all of the negative reports surrounding the way she and other Black actresses were treated on set – despite the film being produced by Oprah.

Well now Mo’Nique is talking, and she claims that the mistreatment of Taraji and her casemates might not have been “despite” Oprah … but rather “because” of Oprah.

Mo’Nique has had a long feud with Oprah Winfrey, was Media Take Out has reported. She claim that Oprah “disrespected” her while filming her Oscar winning performance in the movie Precious.

Monique explained in a 6 minute discussion, *When you hear sister baby girl Taraji say we didn’t have trailers and when we showed up there was no food. When we showed up we had to get ourselves to the set.”

“When you hear all these things, who was @ the helm of this production?,” Monique questioned.

“This is the treatment of the black actress. The trailers were always bad for black actresses. Nothing new there was no food or barely food for the black actress.”

Then she explained how Oprah is the cause of the disrespect.

“Oprah is at the helm so when Taraji says ‘we were hand picked’ those women should’ve been taken care of from the moment go. There’s no way they should’ve walked up to no trailers. No way they should’ve walked up to no food,” Monique added.

“Then you hear Oprah say ‘when Taraji called me, what did I do Taraji, Lady O fixed it.”

Monique ended saying, “When Taraji called Oprah, Oprah got caught.”
