She is NOT here for it! Taraji P. Henson BLASTED 50 Cent after he bashed her hit show, ‘Empire,’ claiming that ratings were down. Her response back was TOTALLY AMAZING. We have all the details, here!
Don’t mess with Cookie! Taraji P. Henson, 46, clapped back at 50 Cent, 41, after the rapper bashed Taraji’s hit Fox show, Empire, saying that the ratings were down. And being the FIERCE woman that she is, Taraji showed Fiddy who’s boss! “For the confused ppl. Do REAL research!!! she wrote on an Instagram post. “Loose change makes sooooooo much UNNECESSARY NOISE. STILL LOOKING FOR THAT DAMN CENT SIGN!!! I guess it’s obsolete. AGAIN CONGRATS ON YOUR SUCCESS BLACK MAN!!! @50cent.”
Along with the EPIC diss, she shared a screen grab from a recent news article, which showed text stating that Empire remained the No. 1 scripted show on broadcast television. We’re still not exactly sure where all of 50’s hatred is coming from, but after all, his own show, Power, is often seen as a competitor to Empire. We just so happen to love them BOTH!
50’s beef with the Fox sitcom is longstanding. Back in September 2015, after Taraji called the rapper “thirsty” on her Instagram, 50 fired back in a video. “Can’t believe Cookie would say some sh*t like that about me,” 50 Cent said. “Thirsty? Me? Thirsty? Come on. Ya stupid? Man, me and Cookie go way back — you know I hit that.”
