People Magazine Under Fire For Racist Viola Davis Tweet

Published

on

The Twitterverse lashed out at People magazine on Thursday night after the publication posted some seemingly racist tweets about, Viola Davis.

Before the premiere of ABC’s How To Get Away With Murder, the magazine posted a questionable tweet that had social media users up in arms.

“Waiting for Viola to break into ‘You is kind. You is smart. You is important.’ #HowToGetAwayWithMurder,” the tweet read, drawing reference to Viola’s role in the 2011 drama, The Help.

The publication did some damage control and apologized for the post, writing:

“Apologies for the earlier tweet. We love HTGAWM & The Help, where that quote was from. But it was stupid & insensitive. Won’t happen again.”

The outlet should be way more apologetic because there wasn’t just one “insensitive” tweet. Earlier in the evening, the mag posted a tweet about Kerry Washington’s hair during the premiere of Scandal.

“Olivia’s back to straight hair so you KNOW she means business. #Scandal.”

Both tweets have since been deleted.

Finally! Taraji P. Henson Confirms Relationship With NFL Baller Kelvin Hayden

Published

on

Taraji is finally letting the world know what it already knew – she’s in a relationship with NFL cornerback Kelvin Hayden. Henson dished the (cold) tea while on Essence’s Yes, Girl! podcast saying that the reason she kept it a secret was because she’s a private person.

“I’m not the type to blast my personal business. But, you know, I think that’s important for people to know. I’m happy. I’m very very happy. I just am,” the “Empire” actress shared.

Rumors first circulated in December 2015 about Henson and 34-year-old Hayden, who played for the Chicago Bears and the Indianapolis Colts, after photos surfaced of the pair holding hands in Miami. Though Hayden has appeared on her Instagram feed, the Golden Globe winner never confirmed the intimate details until now.

“You know, we’ve been together for two years. No one would really know that because I don’t really blast my info like that. But I’m very happy,” she said.

Taraji girl we could tell. The Hidden Figures actress even broke out singing, “Finally! It has happened to me,”—quoting the CeCe Peniston‘s song “Finally.”

Henson also revealed the couple will be celebrating the holidays together with the new puppy Hayden gifted her with as an early Christmas present.

“Big #KBall with Lil squirt #KBall watching daddy brush his teeth! 😩😂😂😂,” she wrote, teasing a photo of her boo and new pup.

And speaking of Christmas, in case you missed it Taraji hosted her “White Hot Holidays” special on Fox Wednesday night. Peep the clips of Henson having some fun with her celebrity guests including Method Man, DJ Khaled, Neicy Nash, Salt-N-Pepa and The Ying Yang Twins.
