Mo’Nique Stands By Her Anti-Bonnet Comments By Posting A Photo Of An Unsuspecting Woman In An Airport: This Is An Example Of What We’re Talking About
Mo’Nique is continuing to double-down on her controversial comments about wearing bonnets in public.
As you may recall, Mo’Nique posted an Instagram video last month in which she criticized Black women for wearing bonnets and pajamas in airports. She stated:
“As we begin to walk through the airport I saw so many, actually too many to count and too many for me to tap, but I 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. When did we lose pride in representing ourselves?”
Additionally, she claimed that–if she saw a woman in public wearing such attire–she would shamelessly tap them on the shoulder and say:
“Hey baby girl, show you what you’re worth. ‘Cause if you look like you don’t give a d*mn, how are you going to be treated?”

Since her initial upload, Mo’Nique has received mixed reactions. Now, however, she has caused another stir with an additional Instagram upload on the subject.
Yesterday (Sunday, June 27th), Mo’Nique posted a picture of an unknown and unsuspecting woman standing in the airport wearing what appears to be a plastic bag over her hair. Additionally, the photographed woman was wearing a tight black dress that had ridden up in the back. Mo’Nique captioned the photo:
“Hey BEAUTIFUL QUEENS. NO SHAMING. If this is the BEST YOU CAN DO NO JUDGEMENT DO YOU. This was sent to me as an example of what we’re talking about that goes on in our community. However if this is not your BEST, th[e]n do BETTER! Being that ultimately the decision either way is yours. I LOVE US 4REAL.”
Since her latest post on women’s appearances, many commenters claimed Mo’Nique had no right to upload such a photo of someone she doesn’t even know. However, in the face of backlash, she made another upload earlier today (Monday, June 28th) in an attempt to seemingly justify her stance. Mo’Nique posted a collage of various African queens throughout history, captioning the photo:
“HEY BEAUTIFUL QUEENS. WHEN WE UNDERSTAND THE QUEENS WE COME FROM. Let US take the time out to research the shoulders we stand on. Now will this go viral[?] I LOVE US 4REAL.”
