Proper Reason For Litigation 

One of the most important and recent incidents has been the one related to Monique and Netflix. In 2015, Netflix was in the position to start a new comedy show, and for the same, it had offered 5 lakh dollars.

But this offer was something that did not settle down so easily.

 It is important to mention that the actress found this offer very discriminatory because, compared to the other co-stars, it became important to note that she was offered a very small amount.
