Taraji P. Henson Responds To 50 Cent’s Criticism


Taraji P. Henson responded to 50 Cent’s criticism of her new show, Empire

Via TheYBF:

Taraji P. Henson, who plays Terrence Howard’s character’s ex-wife Cookie on the new show, isn’t one to shy away from how she really feels when asked. And for her latest Twitter dust up, the 44-year-old actress has some words for 50 Cent!

A little back story….

A few weeks ago, 50 Cent (who is the executive producer of STARZ series “Power”) was on one of his usual trolling sprees on Instagram. Dude must have been feeling like “Empire” would be a little tv competition because he went on an IG rant about how the FOX series jacked marketing strategies and promotional ideas from his show. He wrote,

“POWER Season 2 is unbelievably good trust me. I have the best writers and show runner. I like Terrence Howard and Taraji Henson. I don’t like that they would copy the marketing.”

The STARZ series co-star and executive producer then went on with more comparisons.  Using the two lead stars of the respective shows (Omari Hardwick & Terrence Howard), 50 made a picture collage of them side-by-side asking fans to pick who they liked best. Oh Fif….

Anywho, Taraji and Terrence initially ignored 50’s accusations (as they should), but when a fan asked the No Good Deed star how she felt about 50’s shade, she didn’t hold back. She responded saying, “I pay attention to $’s NOT cents?” Bloop!
