Pose executive producer and director Janet Mock stunned onlookers as she angrily screamed ‘f**k Hollywood’ and admitted to cheating on her partner at the show’s premiere party, it has been claimed.
The room reportedly fell silent at Jazz At Lincoln Center, and network bosses and stars of the FX drama were left open-mouthed during the 15-minute outburst, in New York on Thursday.
Janet, 38, complained about her earnings, demanded better treatment for the trans community and admitted to sleeping with someone on the show’s crew, according to Page Six.
After asking why she was only making $40,000 (£29,000) an episode, she yelled: ‘F**k Hollywood… Does this make you uncomfortable? It should. It should make you f**king shake in your mother**king boots. This is speaking truth. This is what “Pose” is.’
She went on to blast the quality of work from the male writers, insisting the females on the team had been brought in to help them.
Janet, who is dating Pose actor Angel Bismark, also admitted to cheating on him, declaring: ‘Today, I was gonna let [Angel] go. I was gonna let you go, right, but what did I do? I f**ked someone on the crew, right?
‘Angel, Angel. I’m not losing you. You hear me? You are f**king important to me. I don’t want to live in a house alone. I want you. You motherf**ker. Right there. That’s who I want. I’m getting what’s mine.’
An insider told Page Six Janet seemed ‘emotionally unhinged’ and added that she feared for her career after making the speech.
Janet was due to appear on Good Morning America on Friday to promote the show but the spot was cancelled.
Metro.co.uk has contacted a representative for Janet for comment.
