Is it possible to verbally roll your eyes? Because that's what Whoopi Goldberg did on "The View" this week as she grew tired of guest Mo'Nique's grievances.
Mo'Nique on Thursday rehashed two of her past complaints: First, that Netflix disrespected her by not paying her as much as Dave Chappelle, Chris Rock and Amy Schumer for their comedy specials. She is currently calling for a boycott of Netflix.
And secondly, she claims that Oprah Winfrey, Lee Daniels and Tyler Perry punished her in the industry after she refused to promote her 2009 film "Precious" overseas.
After six minutes, Whoopi cut in. “I’m going to stop you because contractually, when you make a movie, regardless of who you sign the deal with, your job is to go and promote said movie," Goldberg said. "And we’ve had this conversation, and I said if you had called me, I could’ve schooled you on what was expected.”

Mo'Nique countered that her family and career have suffered because she did not allow herself to be bullied.
The complaints have left many confused, given that Mo'Nique took home an Oscar for "Precious" and because as a comedian, she has not historically had fanbases as large as those of Chappelle, Rock or Schumer.
"When [Schumer] sold out Madison Square Garden, that means the girl can pull," Joy Behar noted. "It's all about asses in the seats."
