Tracee Ellis Ross Breaks Silence on 'Black-ish' Equal Pay Reports

Tracee Ellis Ross and her Black-ish salary has been the subject of lots of speculation after a report emerged suggesting she wants equal pay to her co-star Anthony Anderson or she’ll do less episodes of the show.

Now, the actress had released a statement on her social media about the situation.

“There has been a lot of conversation and speculation the last few days regarding my Black-ish salary. I was in a renegotiation, like many actors find themselves in during the fourth season of a successful show. I wanted to be compensated in a way that matches my contribution to a show that I love for many reasons, including the opportunity it allows me to reshape what it is to be a fully realized black woman on TV,” Tracee wrote on Twitter.

“The words and thoughts that were in the original article that started this public conversation were not mine; there were never any threats. I wish I would have been called by the reporter to confirm that. Having had my renegotiation become a public conversation was awkward, but I’m grateful for the outpouring of support,” she continued.

    Well I sure hope she isn’t getting paid more than her male co-star because that would not be the “new” feminist way.

    Feminism means equal. Stop making “new” definitions

    She was lead on the very successful Girlfriends and deserves equal pay as co-lead on Black-ish.

    That was a good show and a lot of people forget that “The Game” was a spin off of “Girlfriends”

    I loved Girlfriends but it’s never really talked about anymore apart from where are they now articles.
