Mo’Nique may be back on the big screen soon. Rapper, 50 Cent has called out the ‘cancel culture’ that has impacted the career of the Oscar award winning actress.
Ten years after Mo’Nique was blackballed by the industry, 50 Cent has expressed an interest in hiring her. Mo’Nique won an Oscar award for her performance in the movie, ‘Precious.’ She claims that because she had not acknowledged director, Lee Daniels, she was boycotted by the industry.
50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, has taken the film industry by storm. He has executive produced and written several shows for Starz. ‘Power’, ‘Raising Kanan’ and ‘Black Mafia Family are all on his resume.
The shows, which place the spotlight on relatable situations among black audiences, feature a slew of big celebrity names. Snoop Dogg, Eminem and Mary J. Blige are among them. Mo’Nique may just be the next big name to join 50’s casting.
In a series of posts made on his Instagram account on Friday, he called out cancel culture for depriving the actress of opportunities.
“I Gotta get @therealmoworldwide back in pocket, we only suppose to cancel sh*t that ain’t good for the culture. we need you to WIN again now MONIQUE,” 50 said in one post.
Mo’Nique has not landed a major television or movie role since her Oscar award winning appearance in ‘Precious.’
