According to the original complaint, the idea fell through when Netflix made an offer that she found «biased, discriminatory» — an opening offer of $500,000 for a one-hour show that Netflix would have complete control over, including owning the copyright and retaining all audio-only rights to the special.

The 54-year-old protested the offer, noting that other comics received much more. When Mo'Nique countered, Netflix allegedly shut down negotiations and blackballed her.In a video posted in 2018, Mo’Nique pointed out the discrepancies between her offer and other comedians' pay.
