Mo’Nique sues Netflix for discrimination in show offer

Mo’Nique sues Netflix for race and sex discrimination in its offer for a proposed comedy special

The lawsuit was filed Thursday in Los Angeles Superior Court.

The suit says Netflix violated California’s fair employment laws and is representative of a major pay gap in all employment for black women. It claims Netflix has a corporate culture that tolerates racial insensitivity and impropriety.

An email to a Netflix spokesman seeking comment has yet to be returned.
