In a big reveal on Monday, Netflix announced that “President Barack Obama” and his wife, Michelle, had entered a multi-year deal with Netflix to produce “films and series” for the distribution service.
Notably, the content that could potentially be produced by the Obamas includes “scripted series, unscripted series, docu-series, documentaries, and features”. Alongside the Netflix agreement, the Obamas have also started a new production company called “Higher Ground Productions“.
Of the deal, the Obamas said that they hope “to promote greater empathy and understanding between peoples, and help them share their stories with the entire world”.
Also on Monday, the Drudge Report revealed that Obama allegedly pleaded with rapper Jay-Z to help prevent other hip hop artists meeting with President Trump. Plainly – being out of the White House, Obama is attempting to continue to influence and shape public perception, clearly demonstrated by this Netflix deal and his plea to Jay-Z.
It is a startling sign of the times when such a scandalous and controversial President can be heavily compensated to produce content opposing the man who replaced him.
Actress and comedian Monique is asking her fans to boycott Netflix after she was offered less money than other more relevant hollywood names.
The Daily Wire reported: On Friday, actress and comedian Mo’Nique uploaded a video to Instagram asking fans to boycott Netflix for "for gender bias and color bias" after the streaming giant allegedly offered her $500,000 for a comedy special:
Hey my loves, I am asking that you stand with me and boycott Netflix for gender bias and color bias. I was offered a $500,000 deal last week to do a comedy special. However, Amy Schumer was offered $11 million, Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle, $20 million. Then Amy Schumer went back and renegotiated 2 more million dollars because she said, "I shouldn’t get what the men are getting, they’re legends. However I should get more" and Netflix agreed. When we asked Netflix to explain the difference, why the money was so different, they said, "Well, we believe that’s what Monique will bring." We said, "What about my resume?" They said "We don’t go off of resumes." Then we asked them, "What was it about Amy Schumer?" and they said, "Well, she sold out Madison Square Garden twice and she had a big movie over the summer." Is that not Amy Schumer’s resume? And then Netflix said, "By the way, we believe Monique is a legend too." Why shouldn’t I get what the legends are getting? Please stand with me in this boycott of Neftlix. I love us for real.
If Mo’Nique truly believes there’s a "color bias," then she has to explain why Netflix paid Rock and Chappelle $20 million, and if she believes there’s a "gender bias," then she has to explain why they paid Schumer $11 million. Her argument appears to contradict itself.
It’s certainly possible that Netflix is lowballing Mo’Nique, but there are several factors to consider. First, aside from 2016’s "Almost Christmas," which holds a dismal 51% on Rotten Tomatoes, and an average critical score of 5.4/10, Mo’Nique hasn’t appeared in a comedy film since the critically-savaged "Welcome Home, Roscoe Jenkins" in 2008. Mo’Nique is perhaps best known to modern audiences for her Oscar-winning performance in the 2009 drama "Precious."
