Taraji P. Henson Throws Shade at 50 Cent for ‘Empire' Dig

“Empire” Taraji P. Henson had some biting comments for 50 Cent, who made a jab at her FOX show.

Over the weekend, 50 took to Instagram to post a headline that claimed “Empire” ratings were declining, 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.”

After seeing his post, which has since been deleted, Taraji posted a pic of a recent article, which pointed out that “Empire” was still the #1 scripted show on broadcast television. She added, "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 😔. AGAIN CONGRATS ON YOUR SUCCESS BLACK MAN!!! @50cent.”

50 responded to Taraji’s Instagram post, commenting, "All this back and forth sh*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,” he added.

50 later deleted that post, too.
