She revealed that she didn’t suggest that women always wear a “full face” or lace front when they’re in public, but “I’m saying,” Hair Can you do it? “

“So Queen, when I say Hay, I can only say to the Sista to which it belongs, because many of us are still trained by the Queen. So if you train the Queen If so, stop being afraid to take your position, “she added.” The Queen doesn’t walk around wearing a bonnet, a scarf on her head, slippers, and pajamas. It’s for the house. Outside. Be on behalf of you when you appear .. As you deserve the title of “Hey, Queen”.

Monique’s video has received a lot of comments and opinions. In particular, Monique’s message is for those who feel hidden in respectable politics.

“This was very disappointing. Imagine you grow up to yell, curse, grab your crotch and make a brutal joke, and crack down on a woman wearing a hood. . A person wrote a long comment.

“How do you expect a company to pay fairly, completely ignoring some of your previous actions on stage or in public, even though you can’t treat a woman as a queen based on your outfit? Are you … In all that is happening in the world, you crack down on women of color, especially [sic] Do black women feel comfortable in public and call this the Queen?

She said, “I was a little confused about why so many people stopped following you over the years, but now I understand clearly. This is very anti-black, misogynistic and feminine. I was ignorant. If you know it well, do it better. The same woman who harassed a black man or harassed a black man without doing anything other than body shaping is appropriate for another black woman. I can’t believe I have the boldness to crack down on my actions. “

Another commentator who actually agreed with her accused Monique of being hypocritical about wearing a bathrobe in her video message.

Despite many comments rebuking her comments for the Academy Award-winning actress, there were many others praising her.

“She’s right! I’m sure part of this perspective is age,” said one of her followers. “It doesn’t look cute. No, you don’t have to dress up to get to the airport. I’m certainly not. But I don’t look bad enough to hope no one can see me. And I look good enough, even if someone looks at me Even if they don’t like what I wear, or if they don’t like what I look like, they know I’m representative. I represent us. And I Is doing it well. “
