Well, Lee Butler has some words for Ms. Monique. During a recent interview with Don Lemon, Lee Daniels talks about Mo'Nique recent statements about being blackballed.
“You have to thank the producers of the film, you have to thank the studio, and she didn’t understand that. People aren’t going to respond well,” he said. “I love her, I’ve spoken to her. She’s brilliant, and I love working with brilliant people.”
Mo’Nique has claimed that she thought the Academy Award “should come with more respect, more choices and more money.”
In his evaluation of her words and actions, Daniels told Lemon: “Sometimes artists get in their own way — I know I certainly do often, I have my own demons,” he confessed.
