In a recent interview with KTLA, Mo’Nique gave her input on the Roseanne Barr situation, and why she thinks we shouldn’t cancel her just yet. Mo’Nique insists that even though Roseanne said racist comments against Valerie Jarrett, it doesn’t mean she’s a racist.
“Roseanne Barr is my sister in comedy, my universal sister. And what I won’t do is throw her away for making a mistake,” she said.
Mo’Nique’s appreciation for Barr goes back to when Roseanne had her back. Mo’Nique claims that she had a hard time booking certain talent because the show was “too black,” and that Roseanne came on the show to help her.
