AceShowbiz - Mo'Nique seemingly doesn't think that it is the best idea for Oprah Winfrey to involve herself in "Leaving Neverland". The comedian/actress blasted the TV host for co-hosting the HBO documentary, which features two men accusing Michael Jackson of sexual abuse when they were child.
In her YouTube podcast "Open Relationship", Mo'Nique slammed Oprah for interviewing Wade Robson and James Safechuck only after the pop singer was deceased. "Here's a man that was found not guilty in the eyes of the law. And you wait for 10 years after this man was deceased, to now do an interview with people who said they lied," she said in the video.
"For me, it's sad and disheartening. That man welcomed you in his home and you spoke of how beautiful, and all the love this man has shown children all over the world," Mo'Nique went on saying.
"When we're calling someone a molester and they're no longer here… Michael Jackson is not here to defend himself, which is a major problem," she reasoned. "[He was] found not guilty… then you come back and you allow these two men to get on your platform and tell this story, and that man cannot defend himself, who does that?"
She then wonder if it was all just "for ratings" by titling the video, "@OPRAH-NEVERLAND INTERVIEW; WAS IT RIGHT OR FOR RATINGS?"
This is not the first time for the Oscar-winning actress to slam Oprah. Back in 2017, she accused the talk show queen, alongside Tyler Perry and "Precious" director Lee Daniels, of creating a conspiracy to blackball her after she won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her performance in the movie.
Last month, Mo'Nique made headlines after she was involved in a heated argument with Steve Harvey on his talk show. The tension escalated as Mo'nique threatened to punch him on the face, though she later compared the argument to what sister and brother would have when the parents were out.
Trying to get things straight, Steve told Mo'Nique, "I don't like the fact you've been blackballed…I want this to end for you. Because I love you. Because these people are doing it the wrong way and you're better than that. I probably should've called you as soon as it happened, but I didn't. When I did, I listened to you, but I told you in the beginning we're going about this the wrong way."
At the end of the interview, Steve said, "These people owe you an apology. You owe those people an apology. Then we can move forward." He went on promising Mo'Nique, "Then I'm gonna ask them to say it publicly so you can get the release that you need."
