After weeks of keeping each other at arms length, the duo of Mo’Nique and D.L. Hughley might be on the verge of calling a truce as the former has issued a public apology to the latter’s family.
It should be recalled that the duo have had their relationship strained for weeks after she openly revealed at a stand-up comedy show in Detroit that some years ago, Hughley declined to perform at an event because she was the headliner at the same event.
Mo’Nique had gone all out whe she began taking swipes at Hughley’s family; especially at his youngest daughter and wife.
However, when she recently mounted the stage at a Raleigh, North Carolina show, she issued a public apology to the family for her insensitive comments. It was, however, interesting to observe that the apology was openly intended for the family.
“I’d like to consider myself a woman of honor,” Mo’Nique began. “So I’m about to do something right now publicly that I did publicly. And when I f— something up, I gotta fix it up. So I’m gon’ take care of that right now before I go any motherf—ing further. To D.L. Hughley’s family, I wanna publicly apologize if I hurt anyone’s feelings. I want to publicly apologize to his wife, his babies if I hurt their feelings because that was never my god d— intention.”
She continued, “Oh but that n—- D.L., I meant every motherf—ing thing I said.”
The comments Mo’Nique referred to were ones she made of Hughley’s daughter being victim to sexual assault from a family friend.
“How can D.L.’s wife suck the d— of a coward,” she wrote in an Instagram post.
Hughley’s eldest daughter Ryan Nicole Shepard stepped in, claiming the comedian was saying these hurtful things to get her family to “act out of character.”
