Tiffany Haddish continues her reign as today’s leading comedian with a new deal from Netflix (last month she became the face of Groupon and she’s hosting the 2018 MTV Awards, the first black woman to do so).
The comedian inadvertently found herself in the middle of Mo’Nique‘s call to boycott the streaming site, but after being called out on Twitter she made it clear her deal was done before the Oscar winner’s call to action.
I already got a deal and I signed it way before she said a thing and its not legend money but its enough to take care of my family for min. #Facts

Of course Mo’Nique weighed in, congratulating the Girls Trip actress on her new deal, saying “you’ve done nothing wrong..keep shining.”
You've done nothing wrong my sister. You KEEP SHINING! I am proud of you. You keep doing what your doing. You are making it better for the next ones. Luv u 2 life.

Mo’Nique has been vocal the last month about her reported $500,000 offer from Netflix, even appearing on The View last week, going head-to-head with Whoopi Goldberg about the topic.
While I’m sure Tiffany won’t reveal the amount of her deal, it’d be interesting to know what was offered, compared to Amy Schumer‘s $13M, Mo’Nique and even Wanda Sykes‘ reported $250,000.
TELL US: If you had to guess, did Netflix offer Tiffany more than Mo’Nique?
