WATCH: Mo’Nique Drags Oprah Winfrey, Lee Daniels and Tyler Perry
Mo'Nique went off on Lee Daniels, Tyler Perry, and Oprah Winfrey during a recent stand-up comedy routine, holding nothing back! The actress previously claimed that Lee Daniels was to blame for her being blacklisted in Hollywood, after he allegedly branded her as 'difficult.'

Mo'Nique was performing a Mother's Day show at the Apollo and decided to rant about being blackballed by Hollywood.

"The Parkers" star went off during the Apollo show while discussing the situation. She told the crowd, "I was not 'black-balled', I was 'white-balled' by some Black [expletive] who have no [expletive]. Thank you, Mr. Lee Daniels, thank you, Mr. Tyler Perry, thank you, Ms. Oprah Winfrey... ya'll can suck my [expletive] if I had one."

Mo added, "I know they about to say, 'Mo'Nique, you talk too [expletive] much', [but] it would kill me not to say the real [expletive]."

Mo'Nique's fans weighed in on the comedian's rant, which has gone viral:

One fan wrote, "Really sad to see what could've been a great working relationship come to an end. [Expletive], she and Oprah had a great relationship once and now that's ended over one [expletive] movie? Playing the Hollywood game ain't easy for any black actor, director, nor producer. It's easy to judge from the sidelines but once in a hard situation we don't know what decisions we'd make."

Another fan wrote, "Mo'Nique went in! Tell the truth and shame the devil!"
The bad blood between Mo'Nique and Daniels came to light back in 2015, when she claimed Lee had her “blackballed” in Hollywood amid claims that she didn’t want to promote “Precious” for free and said execs found her “difficult” to work with.

Daniels weighed in on her comments in an interview with Don Lemon. He stated, "During the [Oscar] campaign, she was making unreasonable demands, and I remember thinking ‘this is when reverse racism happens. 

“You have to thank the producers of the film, you have to thank the studio, and she didn’t understand that. People aren’t going to respond well. I love her, I’ve spoken to her. She’s brilliant, and I love working with brilliant people.

“I think that there were demands that were made on the ‘Precious’ campaign that everyone knows hurt her. I told her that. You’ve gotta play ball. This is not just show — it is show business.”

In addition, Mo'Nique previously revealed that Daniels had offered her the role of Cookie Lyon on the show "Empire" and Oprah’s role in "The Butler". Her claims were shot down, but Mo'Nique wasn't having it! She even provided emails between herself and Daniels, allegedly proving that she was offered the "Empire" role.

If you are wondering why Mo’Nique called out Oprah and Tyler during her stand-up show, it's reportedly because they both helped promote “Precious” and signed up as executive producers after the film was completed.
