During her interview with Gayle King last month, Taraji P. Henson broke down in tears as she discussed how underpaid she has been for her whole career.

She said, “I’m sick of hearing my sisters say the same thing over and over.” “You grow weary. People say things like, “You work a lot.” I must. The math isn’t adding up. Chance The Rapper, Keke Palmer, and other members of her peer group have added their voices to the conversation since the interview.

Boosie Badazz expressed his opinions earlier this week on Instagram Live, stating that “power comes in numbers.” The rapper, who was born in Louisiana, explains in a new video how Black women have always been underpaid, but Henson’s remarks have just drawn attention. He said, “Now everyone’s getting on the bandwagon.” “It’s starting to be a reality.”

Furthermore, “Mo’Nique been told y’all,” he said. “They gave her $150K and paid Brad Pitt $25 million. However, when others begin speaking out, it becomes true. […] Strength is found in numbers.” For many years, Mo’Nique has been an outspoken supporter of Black women receiving equal compensation in the entertainment industry. She filed a lawsuit against Netflix in 2022, claiming that the streaming giant had paid her significantly less for a comedy special than it had paid her peers who were white and male.

Chance The Rapper joined the discussion last week and attacked individuals who were blaming Black women for speaking up, pointing out that it’s doubtful that they had experienced what these women have. “They’ll write some stuff and they’ve never had to negotiate a contract, never had to hire a lawyer,” he stated. “And if they did it’s like, you not in The Color Purple, like you not doing nothing.”
