Whose side are you on: Steve Harvey or Mo'Nique?
Take a look at a key point of their conversation below.
Mo'Nique says she is fighting for equality and she will not allow money to distract her from the larger picture. According to The Root:
Steve pointed out how Mo’Nique’s contention with Netflix’s lowballing was “rich people problems.” I will note, that speaks to a larger conversation. Mo’Nique’s fight is for equality, but will that grace trickle down to working class citizens who experience it (and have been experiencing it), too? You would hope the larger issue would have the benefit of a platform via a celebrity figure, but there’s a valid concern that the general public will only care because the affected person is famous.
Steve Harvey suggests that Mo'Nique plays "the game," and says integrity and making a statement would never come before him being able to provide for his family. According to The Root:
“If I crumble, my children crumble, my grandchildren crumble!” Steve exclaimed. “I can not, for the sake of my integrity, stand up here and let everybody that’s counting on me crumble, so I can make a statement.
