Taraji P. Henson Drags 50 Cents To Hell For His Empire CommentTaraji P. Henson brought out Cookie Lyons’ signature to the world when 50 Cent attempted to come for her TV show, Empire.
When the rapper, who is also a producer on Starz’s Power, tried to suggest that the rivaling Fox series had dropped in ratings, Henson clapped back. Hard.
“Well look at the bright side at least. You can eat your trophies,” 50 Cent initially wrote in a since-deleted Instagram post of a headline about Empire’s ratings.
“I was talking to old girl but you felt like you had to respond. SMH you know I love you cookie. I got a new show for you BMF COMING SOON !!!#EFFENVODKA.” Responding with her own screenshot of an article, Henson fired back and shared a statement about how her show
“remains the No. 1 show on broadcast TV.” “For the confused ppl. Do REAL research!!! Loose change makes sooooooo much UNNECESSARY NOISE. STILL LOOKING FOR THAT DAMN CENT SIGN!!! I guess it’s obsolete,” she wrote in an Instagram post from her own account. “AGAIN CONGRATS ON YOUR SUCCESS BLACK MAN!!! @50cent.”
