In an Instagram post Monday with her husband-manager, Sidney Hicks, Mo’Nique insisted she’s more “bankable” than actress and comic Amy Schumer, to whom Netflix reportedly paid millions more for a special.

In 2017, Amy Shumer did a film called Snatched,” Mo’Nique says, explaining that her information comes from Box Office Mojo. “That film made 45 million dollars domestically. In 2016, I did a film called Almost Christmas,  that film made 42 million dollars domestically. Amy Schumer’s budget for Snatched was 42 million dollars, and it made 45 million dollars.”

After having her husband Sydney note that Schumer’s film was in 3,511 theaters, while Mo’Nique’s played in only in 2,379 theaters, Mo’Nique pointed out that Schumer’s film only made a three-million-dollar profit, while Almost Christmas made a profit of 25 million.

“Could somebody please make it make sense?” Mo’Nique asks at the end of her video, adding the caption, “Fact checking. What is bankability. Make it Make Sense.”

As previously reported, a spokesperson for Netflix told ABC News, “Netflix doesn’t comment on contract negotiations.”
