Boosie BadAzz Moves A Cause For Underpaid Black Women in the Industry

The latest known face talking about black women getting underpaid is Boosie BadAzz. In a new clip, he admitted that everyone was getting on the trendy topic, and it seemed more believable because of the shared stories. However, he recalled that Mo’Nique was one of the earliest actresses to share her distress.

Per HotNewHipHop, he shared:

“Mo’Nique been told y’all. They paid Brad Pitt $25 million and gave her $150K. But when people start opening their mouth up, it becomes reality. […] Power comes in numbers.”

After years of airing her disappointment in the pay disparity for black women and men, Mo’Nique finally fought a legal battle in 2022. She slammed Netflix with a lawsuit explaining that they failed to pay her the same salary as her male contemporaries in a comedy special.

Despite having her peak season following the Empire series, Taraji said she suffered some setbacks. Her team failed to deliver, and she fired them. But the one thing she could not control was her earnings. No matter how hard she worked, there was not enough money to show for it.

During her interview with Gayle King, she said:

“I’m tired of hearing my sisters say the same thing over and over. You get tired. I hear people go, ‘You work a lot.’ I have to. The math ain’t mathing.”

A host of other celebrities chimed in support, noting that Taraji was not alone and they had suffered the same fate. Gabrielle Union, Viola Davis, Keke Palmer, and rapper Chance The Rapper shared their two cents.
