Mo’Nique Says Oprah Demeans Women, As She Posts An Old Clip Of Toni Braxton Saying Oprah Was ‘Mean’ To Her During Interview [VIDEO]

Mo’Nique’s campaign against Oprah Winfrey continues. Now, she’s throwing Grammy-Award winning singer Toni Braxton into the mix.

She posted a vintage video of Toni Braxton’s “Behind The Music” special on VH1, which addressed her appearance on Oprah Winfrey’s then daytime talk show.

In the clip, Oprah Winfrey comes for Toni Braxton about her bankruptcy issues. Toni Braxton said,

“She was so mean to me. I loved her so much. I admired her and looked up to her, and she reprimanded me. She says to me ‘I hear you have Gucci flatware. I’m Oprah Winfrey and I don’t have Gucci flatware. You don’t have Gucci flatware because you didn’t want to buy it. Not because you couldn’t afford it. What do you mean? And immediately, she made me feel this big… that moment completely changed my career. It made people look down on [me]…”

Mo’Nique added the caption,

“IF YOU THINK @oprah ONLY DEMEANS BLACK MEN IT’S BECAUSE THE BLACK WOMEN HAS BEEN MADE VIRTUALLY INVISIBLE!!! SEE FOR YOURSELF WITH OUR SISTER TONI B. IN CASE YOU FORGOT OR NEVER KNEW!!! LOVE US 2 LIFE!”

Her message comes just days after she blasted Oprah Winfrey for only coming for black men in the public. Oprah Winfrey infamously hosted a documentary Leaving Neverland, featuring men who accused Michael Jackson of sexually assaulting them when they were teens. She was also the executive producer for a project featuring Russell Simmons’ accusers before she backed out because of creative differences. Still, Winfrey has been called out for not doing documentaries on movie exec Harvey Weinstein, who is currently on trial for allegedly sexually assaulting several women.

Mo’Nique wrote earlier this month,

“Dear @oprah,
I felt compelled to write you this open letter after observing the disparity in the way that you seem to treat people, who were accused of the same allegations. You did an interview on the CBS Morning Show and were asked about Harvey Weinstein by Norah O’Donnell, and you said as it pertained to him that you “always try to look at the Rainbow in the clouds, whatever is the “silver lining”. You also said “if we make this all about Harvey Weinstein then we have lost the moment”.”

Dear @oprah, I felt compelled to write you this open letter after observing the disparity in the way that you seem to treat people, who were accused of the same allegations. You did an interview on the CBS Morning Show and were asked about Harvey Weinstein by Norah O’Donnell, and you said as it pertained to him that you “always try to look at the Rainbow in the clouds, whatever is the “silver lining”. You also said “if we make this all about Harvey Weinstein then we have lost the moment”. When you either are, or were going to be a part of documentary on Michael Jackson, and Russell Simmons, how is that not making it all about them? Interestingly, Brother M.J. was acquitted, and deceased, so how is he not off limits? Russell and Harvey are accused of the same thing so in fairness how do you not “support” the accusers of both as you said you did with R.S. or you look for the silver lining for both like you said you did for H.W.? The only difference between the two is there skin color and doesn’t H.W. have way more accusers? My personal experience with you is you’ve watched me as a black women be accused of being difficult for not promoting “Precious” internationally for Lions Gate, at Lions Gate, Tyler Perry and your request, despite the fact my deal was with Lee Daniels Entertainment. And, how are you for black women when you hear Tyler on audio saying I was right and he was going to speak up but you or him still haven’t said a word? When I was sixteen and I meet you at your local show in Baltimore, I told you I wanted to be just like you when I grew up. You responded, “ you have to work really really hard”. My sixteen year old self didn’t know that you in your silence in the face of wrongdoing, would make my life “harder”. Lastly, please consider standing by the people who are right and not just the “right people”. Love you to life, Mo’Nique
