 India Arie has stepped forward to defend Mo’Nique, who has called for a boycott against Netflix. Arie tweeted on Wednesday (February 28th), “I’ve been called difficult when i demand accountability, take self care time, speak difficult truth or stand up  at all LOL! U may not agree with @moworldwide approach but she’s NOT wrong. Its the black tax AND the gender pay gap rolled into one. FYI – Black Tax: The experience that Black people have to work and perform twice as well as White people to get half as much. Most people would be surprised to learn of the UTTER NONSENSE black woman artist have to accept just to CREATE. AND we STILL come thru and light the WHOLE stage up. @moworldwide is RIGHT and BRAVE. And handling it all so well.  Im so grateful for U! Who WANT to hear my songs ~ U are why i do it because otherwise- its wouldn’t be worth all the struggle. There is no ‘right’ way FOR her to say.  i applaud @moworldwide for speaking up at ALL! KNOWING shed be hit with so much hate. Just to be clear where I stand #ImWithYouMo aaaaannnd Love to all.”
