Monique is at it again … the “Precious” star isn’t done letting Oprah have a piece of her mind, but this time the fight is a bit different.
In an open letter posted to her instagram, Mo calls into question Winfrey’s seemingly soft attitude towards Harvey Weinstein and her condemning stance on Michael Jackson and Russell Simmons pointing out that in refernece to Harvey, Oprah stated she “always try to look at the Rainbow in the clouds, whatever is the “silver lining”.
At one point the legendary talk show host was involved in both Jackson’s and Simmons’ documentaries — Mo’Nique questioned, “Brother M.J. was acquitted, and deceased, so how is he not off limits? Russell and Harvey are accused of the same thing so in fairness how do you not “support” the accusers of both … The only difference between the two is there skin color…”
Mo also couldn’t help but bring up her old issues regarding the promotion of Precious once again, writing, “how are you for black women when you hear Tyler on audio saying I was right and he was going to speak up but you or him still haven’t said a word? please consider standing by the people who are right and not just the ‘right people’.”

Dear @oprah, I felt compelled to write you this open letter after observing the disparity in the way that you seem to treat people, who were accused of the same allegations. You did an interview on the CBS Morning Show and were asked about Harvey Weinstein by Norah O’Donnell, and you said as it pertained to him that you “always try to look at the Rainbow in the clouds, whatever is the “silver lining”. You also said “if we make this all about Harvey Weinstein then we have lost the moment”. When you either are, or were going to be a part of documentary on Michael Jackson, and Russell Simmons, how is that not making it all about them? Interestingly, Brother M.J. was acquitted, and deceased, so how is he not off limits? Russell and Harvey are accused of the same thing so in fairness how do you not “support” the accusers of both as you said you did with R.S. or you look for the silver lining for both like you said you did for H.W.? The only difference between the two is there skin color and doesn’t H.W. have way more accusers? My personal experience with you is you’ve watched me as a black women be accused of being difficult for not promoting “Precious” internationally for Lions Gate, at Lions Gate, Tyler Perry and your request, despite the fact my deal was with Lee Daniels Entertainment. And, how are you for black women when you hear Tyler on audio saying I was right and he was going to speak up but you or him still haven’t said a word? When I was sixteen and I meet you at your local show in Baltimore, I told you I wanted to be just like you when I grew up. You responded, “ you have to work really really hard”. My sixteen year old self didn’t know that you in your silence in the face of wrongdoing, would make my life “harder”. Lastly, please consider standing by the people who are right and not just the “right people”. Love you to life, Mo’Nique
Now, last time we talked to Mo she expounded upon those same criticizims against Lady O, but she wasn’t above squashing the beef. Specifically, sitting down on Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday and hashing it out.
