Terrence Howard Reacts To Mo’Nique Bashing ‘Empire’s’ Lee Daniels
Terrence Howard decided to step in and give his 2 cents worth on the beef between the Mo’Nique and Lee Daniels.

Mo’Nique reportedly had no kind words to give about the Lee and a few other African American television/film influencers. 

During a comedy show at the Apollo Theatre on Mother’s Day, Mo’Nique stated that Lee Daniels, Tyler Perry, and Oprah Winfrey as “black [expletive] who had no [expletive]”. She also continued with “Y’all can [expletive] my [expletive]if I had one”. Harsh words for the African Americans who make the most money from television and film. 

Terrance Howard told TMZ “Everybody’s got a right to speak what’s on their mind” in regards to Mo’Nique’s comments on stage.
He added, “She got an Oscar from it and she's still an amazing actor and an amazing comedian”. 

He was also asked if there should be hard feeling towards her comments and he said, “No, there shouldn’t be”. 

Looks like Terrance is backing Mo'Nique and might have a few things he'd like to say to the entertainment giants.

Mo'Nique's comments added to her ongoing feud with Lee, which started with the discussion of her being “blackballed” in Hollywood. Lee claimed that Mo’Nique didn’t know how to play the game. Mo’Nique, however, has said in interviews that she was not “blackballed” as Lee Daniels put it. According to her, the phone never stopped ringing; she simply stopped answering for roles that didn't make sense to her. During Precious, there was only one incident that led to her being labeled as difficult to work with. 
Let’s all remember that Mo’Nique is a comedian and anything she says on stage cannot be held against her; even if those were her true feelings. 

Also, why ask Terrance Howard anything? Homeboy is putting his job at Empire in jeopardy. Rule number one of having a job; never speak poorly of the boss - even if you didn't directly say anything against him.

Hopefully, Lucious Lyons won't get killed off next season. Y'all didn't know? Lee Daniels is petty.
