Taraji P. Henson Fires Back At Messy 50 Cent After ‘Empire’ Diss: “Still Looking For That Damn Cent Sign”
When it comes to the feud between Taraji P. Henson and 50 Cent, there are no holds barred.
In the latest round of social media grenades between the two, Henson blasted back at the New York rapper after he suggested the ratings on Fox’s Empire were low.
Last week, the Power executive producer posted a snapshot of Henson on Instagram with the caption, “Well look at the bright side at least. You can eat your trophies. 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.”
Now, don’t think that
Mrs. Cookie Lyon Henson is going to let that slide. In response, the Empire star took to Instagram to fire back at the rapper … and we should explain that “fire” is an understatement.
Over the weekend, Taraji posted an image of Power cast mate, Naturi Naughton, with the caption: “Sooooooooo proud of you @naturi4real I WANT YOU TO KNOW I will NEVER let any NEGATIVITY come between the LOVE I have for my sisters!!! As women we put up with enough BS. I will NEVER add to that stress and heartache!!! YOU ARE DOPE on #Power and in life!!! #BlackGirlMagic SHINE BABY SHINE.”
Unfortunately, the back and forth didn’t end there. 50 Cent blasted back with one lengthy message, joking that he was going to replace Empire.
“All this back and forth s–t is starting to turning me on cookie, LMAO I ran into Lee Daniels at the gym on Sunset Blvd. he asked why I didn’t except his offer to be on EMPIRE. I told him I have a lot going on, I’m actually working on the show FOX is gonna replace EMPIRE with, he looked at me like…why the f–k are you doing that? It’s because I’m a drug dealer, and I was taught to get in, get your weight up, then take over. So that’s the deal #EFFENVODKA #smsaudio #FRIGO.”
The pair first became at odds earlier this month after Taraji defended 50’s ex, Vivica A. Fox, after the rapper dissed his former love on Instagram.
