In a video shared on Instagram, Mo’Nique asked Black women to stop wearing bonnets, slippers and pajamas at airports and other public spaces
Mo’Nique has a message for all the “queens” out there wearing bonnets at airports, but not everyone is feeling the unsolicited advice.
On Saturday, the comedian and actress shared a video message to Black women asking them to stop wearing bonnets, slippers and pajamas in public spaces.
“It took me a minute to say what I’m getting ready to say because I want to make sure I’m not saying it from a place of judgment and that I’m saying it from a place of love,” Mo’Nique told her one million Instagram followers. “Some of y’all have given me the title of auntie, and I’m honored that y’all do that. But there are times that auntie has to talk to her babies and say some real shit.”
The entertainer shared that while she was traveling to Jackson, Mississippi for a gig, she was astounded by how many “young sistas” she saw wearing “head bonnets, scarfs, slippers pajamas, [and] blankets wrapped around them” at the airport.
“I’ve been seeing it not just at the airport. I’ve been seeing it at the store, at the mall … ” Mo’Nique said, adding “When did we lose our pride in representing ourselves? When did we slip away of let me make sure I’m presentable when I leave my home?”
While she made it clear she wasn’t suggesting that women always wear a “full face of makeup” or a lacefront when out in public, she emphasized, “All I’m saying is could you please comb your hair?”
“I’m not saying you don’t have pride but the representation that you’re showing someone will have to ask you to know if you have it,” she added. “It’s not to get a man … it is just your representation of you, my sweet babies.”
Mo’Nique told women to take her message as a “warning,” as she vowed to step in if she happened to see them “in the streets, in the airports, in the Walmart and you got a bonnet on and you got slippers on and you looking like what the f*ck.”
“Auntie Nikki ‘gon tap you and say, ‘Hey baby girl, show you what you’re worth, show you what you deserve.”
Mo’Nique also urged “wiser sistas” to join her in correcting what she sees as not representing themselves with pride.
“That may be a part of us helping our community, because if you look like you don’t give a damn, how you gonna be treated?” said Mo’Nique.
“So when I say hey, Queen, I can only say it to the sistas that it belongs to. Because a lot of us are still in queen training. So if you’re in queen training stop being fearful of taking your position,” she added. “Queens don’t walk around in bonnets, and head scarfs and slippers and pajamas. That’s for the house. When you go outside, represent you, baby .. like you are worthy and you deserve the title of ‘Hey, Queen.’”
Mo’Nique’s video garnered a lot of comments and plenty of opinions, particularly those who felt her message was cloaked in respectability politics.
“This was such a disappointment. Imagine women growing up watching you be loud, curse, grab your crotch and make heinous jokes just for you to turn around and police women for wearing a bonnet?” one person wrote in a lengthy comment.
“How is it that you can’t address women as queens based on how they’re dressed, but you expect corporations to pay you fairly with complete disregard to some of your previous actions on stage and in public? … Out of everything going on in the world, you choose to police women of color, specially [sic] black women, for being comfortable in public and you call this being a Queen?
She added, “I was a little lost at why a lot of people stopped following you over the years, but I clearly understand now. This was extremely anti-black, misogynistic and ignorant. If you know better, do better. I just can not believe the same women who did nothing besides body shame skinny women, talk about d*ck and had an entire series dedicated to harassing a black man has the audacity to police another black woman on appropriate behavior.”
Another commentator, who actually agreed with her, accused Mo’Nique of hypocrisy for wearing a bathrobe in her video message.
Despite the many comments scolding the Academy Award-winning actress for her comments, there were many others who applauded her for it.
“She’s right! I’m sure some of this perspective is age,” said one of her followers. “The look is not cute. No, you don’t have to dress up to go to the airport. I sure as hell don’t. But I’m not looking so bad that I hope no one sees me. And I’m looking good enough so that if someone does see me, even if they don’t like what I’m wearing or they don’t like how I look, they know I’m representing. I’m representing us. And I’m doing it well.”

Trump takes attempt to block release of his January 6 documents to court Tuesday
The arguments are likely to be an uphill battle for the former President. The Biden administration and the House are aligned against him in wanting transparency about communications in the West Wing as Trump sought to overturn the 2020 election result and his supporters raided the Capitol. Trump lost his first round in court in the case, more quickly and resoundingly than his losses when he tried to claim broad protections from investigations while he was President.
Yet by raising major, unsettled questions about the power of former presidents to control information from their time in office, the case appears to be on a path to the Supreme Court.
Trump has argued he should be able to assert executive privilege over records such as call logs and the handwritten notes of his top advisers. The Biden administration has declined to keep January 6-related White House documents confidential.
Judge Tanya Chutkan of the DC District Court previously smacked down all of Trump’s arguments in the case. “Presidents are not kings, and Plaintiff is not President,” she wrote in her opinion earlier this month.
Presidential privilege “exists for the benefit of the Republic, not any individual,” Chutkan also wrote.
So far the panel has shown an inkling of doubt. Last week, they told Trump, the House and the Biden administration to be prepared to address questions of whether the court can even decide a case like this — in addition to the arguments the parties are already prepared to make.
Wilkins also has been a strong voice on recent politically charged cases. He wrote a strong dissent against the dismissal of former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn’s guilty plea in 2020 and authored the opinion that set the standard for the jailing of Capitol riot defendants before their trials.
Four collections of records from the Trump White House that have been reviewed by the National Archives are poised to go to the House committee if Trump ultimately loses the appeal. Witnesses subpoenaed by the House, including Meadows himself, have used the ongoing court case as a shield to skirt testifying.
Currently, the appeals court has put a temporary hold on the National Archives releasing the records Trump contests, pending its issuance of another order.

The series also stars Priyamani, Neeraj Madhav, Sharad Kelkar, Dalip Tahil, Sharib Hashmi, Shreya Dhanwanthary, and Sunny Hinduja.
Directed and produced by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K. who also co-penned the story and screenplay along with Suman Kumar, with dialogue jotted down by Sumit Arora and Sumit Arora. In the second season, Samatha Akkineni was cast as the main villain, as she invaded the digital platform with Suparn S. Verma helms a portion of the season.
As much as the third season is concerned, fans need not worry as the showrunners of the popular series have already made a formal declaration that the third installment will make a comeback soon which means fans could see their favorite character Srikant Tiwari (Manoj Bajpayee) as the series return with new episodes.
This piece of an announcement made the fans hyped up as well as the viewers to see Manjo Bajpayee as he continues his mission in the next season. Read more to know all the details below.
The Family Man Season 3 Release date: When is it?
The first season of The Family Man premiered on September 20, 2019, comprising 10 episodes followed by the second season which was released on June 4, 2021.
The Family Man earned favorable responses from audiences and critics alike applauding the performance of the actors, the well-crafted plot, and its excellent execution. This series also managed to bag the most viewed web series on the streaming service, Amazon Prime Video.
Following the success of its first and second season, it’s no surprise that the series is getting a much-needed third-season run. The series creators Raj and D. K. declared openly in May 2020 that the third installment of The Family Man is soon to be in development and since it’s already almost at the end of the year, filming might be in the last stages if there are no delays caused by the Covid-19 pandemic as India is badly affected by the pandemic and still struggling with it.
While the official release date is not yet confirmed, we assume that fans won’t get to see the new episodes until 2023 at the earliest as we have mentioned before, India is still amidst the pandemic. So fingers crossed that we get to see the new season as soon as possible.
