Empire act, Taraji P Henson has taken rapper 50 Cent back to school and we are all here for it!
The drama started yesterday when the ‘Get Rich, Die Tryin’ rapper posted a photo of his ex Vivica Fox with a denigrating caption. He also mocked the TV series Empire which Vivica stars in, boasting that his Power TV series is much better.
Some of the people who called him out include actress Taraji P. Henson, the star of the rival TV show.
“I prob should leave this alone but I despise bullies! Never understood that #CrabsInABarrel syndrome, but at least some aren’t falling for this silly BS!” She wrote, adding, “Use your Power to unite people and uplift us all. #DoBetter #ThereIsAlwaysRoomForAll 50 Cent. I am proud of your achievement black man. Maybe your karma is blocking your blessings.”
And then she noted that her TV show has won EMMY awards, something 50 Cent’s show hasn’t been nominated for.
The bad blood between both shows started in January 2015, after Empire- the TV series- started to dominate the small screen and 50 Cent accused the producer Lee Daniels of copying the advertorial of his Power TV series.
It has been a messy drama which only worsened after Vivica Fox joined Empire.
