As previously reported, Mo’Nique made headlines after she criticized D.L. Hughley while performing on stage, stating that the comedian had refused to perform if she was the show’s headliner.

Mo’s remarks saw the two head into several heated exchanges online, with Hughley’s oldest daughter, Ryan Nicole Shepard, having to step in and defend her mother and younger sister after Mo’Nique had mentioned them in a statement on Instagram.

Shepard captioned her address to Mo’, “Out of all things you could have legitimately said about my dad, if that’s the route you wanted to take, you chose to be deliberately mean and hurtful to two Black women who have nothing to do with this conversation,” she wrote. “Using my mama and my sister to show people my father’s character only shows how little mental stability, dignity, morality and respect you have not only for yourself but other Black women.”

She went on, “You’re disgusting and you absolutely need to keep every single member of MY family’s name out of your poisonous mouth,” Shepard wrote. “Not because you can do us harm, you can’t. But because you are adding to the historical and systematic disrespect and trauma of other Black women… who you claim to love. And for what? A check?”

Shepard then invited Mo’Nique to an in-person discussion to resolve the issue, to which Mo’ appeared willing. The 54-year-old comic has now issued a public apology to Hughley.

During a recent appearance on stage, Mo’ issued an apology to D.L. Hughley, saying:

The comedian said, “I like to consider myself a woman of honor. So, I’ve got to do something right now, publicly, that I did publicly. ” Mo’Nique said, addressing Hughley’s family. “To D.L. Hughley’s family, I want to publicly apologize if I’ve hurt anyone’s feelings because that was not my intention.”
