‘Almost Christmas’ film premiere, Los Angeles, USA – 03 Nov 2016

It was suppose to be a night where fans got to see their favorite comedians in D.L. Hughley and Mo’Nique in  The Comedy Explosion at the Fox Theater in Detroit, Michigan. The night of comedy was hosted by Josh Adams and introduced comedian Aida Rodriguez.

Things turned to a shocking predicament when fans heard Mo’Nique going after D.L. Hughley with some hateful words during her set. The 54-year-old felt a certain type of way over a contract dispute. It was said that she was supposed to headline the event, but that did not go as planned.

Attacking D.L.’s character, she went on to say, “What kind of real n*gga would ever attack a got d*mned black woman?” she asked in reference to him speaking negatively about her on an old tour. She continued, adding that she feels bad for his entire family along with his wife– saying, “N*gga your name is D.L., what the f*ck does it stand for?” Closing in on her point that he’s an undercover homosexual, she asked, “How far are you bending over n*gga? On the DL.”

D.L. Hughley decided to respond to the backlash from his fellow comedian. “All you have to do is check the order of names on the ticket stub from last night and you’ll see who’s confused,’ the comedian said. ‘Against my better judgment, over the objections of my team and four other occasions where I said NO, I decided to take a chance and work with Monique.’

Hughley cited a number of entertainment business people and companies who Mo’Nique has past expressed issues with publicly, in illustrating her history of professional grievances.

‘Oprah was the problem, Tyler Perry was the problem, Charlamagne was the problem, Steve Harvey was the problem, Lee Daniels was the problem, Netflix was the problem… Now it’s MY turn,’ Hughley said. ‘At some point it can’t be everyone else, IT’S YOU!! Lesson learned … I wonder who’s next …’

‘People paid a lot of money to laugh, not hear about your contract,’ he said.

Hughley added, ‘Apparently, the role you played in PRECIOUS turned out to be an autobiography,’ in reference to the 2009 film in which she won an Oscar playing the role of Mary, the mercurial, abusive and manipulative mother of the titular character.

Hughley also posted a shot of an advertisement for the show in which his name was listed before Mo’Nique’s.

‘ANSWER ME THIS…. WHEN HAVE YOU EVER SEEN THE “HEADLINER” AT THE BOTTOM AND MENTIONED LAST?’ he said, later adding the hashtags, #TeamDL and #talktoyourpeople.
