Mo’Nique has been trending online after she posted a video, calling out women who wear their bonnets in public.
“Some of ya’ll have given me the title of auntie and I’m honored. But there are times that auntie gotta talk to her babies and say some real sh*t,” she says in the video.
Her rant was prompted by a recent trip she took.
“And as we begin to walk through the airport I saw so many, actually too many to count and too many for me to tap, but I saw so many of our young sisters in head bonnets, scarves, slippers, pajamas, blankets wrapped around them. And this is how they’re showing up to the airport.”
She says it’s not just the airport — it’s everywhere. Mo’Nique is tired of seeing bonnets in public and wants women to comb their hair and show what they’re worth.
“When did we lose pride in representing ourselves?”
Is she right?
