It also alleges that Chapelle signed a $60 million deal that included three stand-up specials, while Schumer was offered $11 million for one special initially, though managed to negotiate an increase of $2 million.

"Mo'Nique objected to Netflix's discriminatory pay offer, pointed out how it was discriminatory and asked Netflix to do the right thing by negotiating fair pay with her,” the suit states.
