Taraji P. Henson Claps Back at 50 Cent’s ‘Empire’ Diss

Taraji P. Henson

We all know that 50 Cent stays being petty when championing his show Power over rival TV series Empire. 

On numerous occasions 50 has not been afraid to be vocal about how he thinks Power is far superior to Empire. Often caught in the firing line-up has been Taraji P. Henson who plays Cookie on Empire.

With season 3 of the musical drama show well underway as of last week, 50 Cent decided to take a jab at Henson on Instagram:

“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.”

50 has since deleted his post. But his comments certainly caught the eye of of Henson who decided to put a post up in response to Fiddy. In her post she asked people to “do REAL research” in reference to which TV show is having more success.

The real test of the shows remains to be seen as Empire makes its way through the season. Tonight is also the season finale of Power which airs at 9pm EST on STARZ.
