Charlamagne Tha God was the first guest on the season-two premiere of Showtime’s talk show “Ziwe.” “The Breakfast Club” co-host was grilled about previous allegations that he verbally insults Black women or actually “hates” them. In a clip from the show, shared by The Neighborhood Talk, Ziwe began by pointing out Charlamagne’s previous “beefs” with Black women.
Throughout the years, his ‘Breakfast Club’ co-hosts Angela Yee, Lil Mama, Cassie along with others have directly or subtly accused the 43-year-old of making a mockery or joke of Black women in various ways.
“Beefs is a strong word,” said Charlamange, which prompted Ziwe to clarify her stance. “You’ve maligned Black women. So why do you hate Black women, exactly?” she said.
The Comedy Central host replied, “No I love Black women and I mean I guess I can see where people would say that, if you want to take those three or four times and put them together in a montage.”
The video then cut to an “incriminating montage” of insults or remarks Charlamagne made toward Black women on “The Breakfast Club.” It featured clips from interviews with female vocalists Brandy, Monica, Azealia Banks and comedian Mo’Nique.
At this point, it’s common knowledge that Mo’Nique has no love for Charlamagne Tha God after he crowned her ‘Donkey of the day‘ on “The Breakfast Club” in 2018. At the time, the comedienne asked fans to boycott Netflix regarding the low budget offer she was offered for a proposed comedy special. He said, “We understand she’s a legend, but we’re not just negotiating based off your old resume….your current market value.”
Weeks later, the Oscar-winning actress appeared on the morning show, where the two had a heated discussion about equal pay and the undervaluing of Black women in Hollywood.
“Why wouldn’t I get what legends get? Mo’Nique said to Charlamagne, who responded, “Because their resume recently is better.”
Mo’Nique laid into Charlamagne again a year later when she said he contributed to “the destruction” of the Black community.
In an interview with Comedy Hype, she said, “I’ve seen and heard the destruction that that brother has done in our community. I’ve heard the poison that he’s pulled out over that air in our community. Now everyone is allowed to change. Everyone can wake up and say, ‘You know what, I now see it differently.’ But I think that the only way that we make change in our community is to first acknowledge that we were part of the damage … I think that that brother played a big part in the destruction of our community.”
