When You Haven’t Healed From Trauma

Published by


Mo’Nique claimed that her reposting the years-old video wasn’t retraumatizing Hughley’s daughter, saying that even if Hughley did apologize (which it seems like he has, or at the very least exhibited contrition in the video), it “wouldn’t erase the trauma.”

But many people, including many of her fans, have called her out for potentially retraumatizing Hughley’s daughter by using her trauma just to get back at Hughley for a supposed incorrect contract agreement and for a question one of his co-hosts her when she was on his radio show years ago.

Hughley’s eldest daughter, Ryan Nicole Shepard, has since commented herself on the matter, writing how Mo’Nique’s decision to repost the video shows her character.
