Mo’Nique has been making her beef with DL Hughley personal. Their contract dispute has turned out to be a guise for Mo’Nique’s real issues with Hughley, which seem to stem from a botched interview question over a decade ago. She weaponized his daughter’s chilhood by posting videos of DL admitting that he did not believe his youngest when she told him she had been taken advantage of by a friend at the age of 13.
Mo’Nique also brought up Hughley’s wife, accusing her of enabling him with her silence. DL’s father was also pulled into the mix after Mo’Nique questioned DL’s mental capacity to deal with this situation due to him having a service dog to help with the grief of losing his dad.
In a separate video, Mo’Nique posted DL Hughley discussing “nappy-headed” women in connection to comments from Don Imus made about the Rutgers women’s basketball team in 2007. DL agreed with Imus and called the women ugly as well. Feed up with her family being dragged into this, DL’s daughter Ryan issued a stern warning to Mo’Nique, asking her to keep their family out of her “poisonous mouth.” Ryan believes there were other ways to get at DL besides his family and that if Mo’Nique needed to discuss things in person, she would gladly facilitate.
Mo’Nique Wants To Meet And Heal The Community
Mo’Nique seems to have misunderstood Ryan’s invitation to talk. Why Ryan meant an in-person discussion that might not involve much talking, Mo’Nique flipped it and tried to phrase it as an opportunity for “healing.” Mo reposted Ryan’s rant, and in the caption, she thanked her for an “invitation for a discussion.” Mo says that her conditions would be that the talk has to take place on DL;s Hughley’s show and that her husband is present. After weeks of back and forth, the Queen of Comedy believes the meeting between both families would be great for the culture, but not many people seem to want the meeting to happen.
