Mo’Nique ‘Unapologetic’ For Comments About Black Women And Hair Bonnets

Mo’Nique is unapologetic for telling black women to fix themselves up before they leave home.

The Oscar-winning actress posted a video on Instagram she captioned “UNAPOLOGETIC.”

In the video she said, “So for you babies that have taken offense to what I said, I’m okay with that. I’m okay with y’all being in your feelings about it. I’m okay with that because when you love somebody for real, I know y’all will get over that. And when y’all say, ‘We will cancel yo ass’ … well, they’ve tried that, and I’m still here…

The post comes after Mo’Nique was slammed by after she told a story on Instagram last week about being in an airport in Atlanta, where she “saw so many of our young sisters in head bonnets, scarves, slippers, pajamas, blankets wrapped around them, and this is how they’re showing up to the airport.”

She also explained that music icon Patti LaBelle and acting legend Margaret Avery told her years ago to “get yourself together” … with Avery even encouraging her to lose weight. Instead of getting in her feelings, Mo’Nique said she took their advice to heart.
