50 Cent has taken a liking to Mo’Nique. The veteran actress was “cancelled” from the industry after she won an Oscar for her incredible supporting role in Precious back in 2009. It appears, 50 Cent wants Mo’Nique to make a comeback.
Mo’Nique was deemed a social and professional pariah after she chose to ignore director Lee Daniels and the film studio’s inputs during her Oscar acceptance speech. In the past, Daniels has also alleged that the actress is “difficult to work with,” seemingly attempting to turn opinions in his favour.
Despite what the other industry members have to say, about Mo’Nique, 50 Cent thinks that she deserves her time in the spotlight. The rapper told his followers over the weekend, “I went to see @therealmoworldwide stand-up show [during] Super Bowl weekend. Oh shit! Was so good, she had my ass in a trance,”
50 asked his fans, “You gotta go check her out the shit was [fire].” In his next post, the New Yorker shared a click from Mo’Nique’s appearance on his hit series, Power, from a few years ago. 50 Cent captioned his post, “I gotta get @therealmoworldwide back in pocket,”
50 further said in the caption, “We only [supposed] to cancel shit that ain’t good for the culture. We need you to WIN again now MO’NIQUE.” He also urged his followers to help restore the Maryland-born starlet to her former glory, 50 shared a portrait of her and said “All in favour of @therealmoworldwide being back on top, say make it happen 50! STOP F*CKING AROUND.”
