On the same day, Taraji took to Twitter to discuss the issue of racial profiling.

“Racial profiling is VERY REAL!!! It has happened to me but to my son more and he is only 20!!! Something needs to be done. #SERIOUSLY,” Taraji tweeted. “I worked my butt off 2 break a cycle. Get my son out of the hood. Thinking his privileged lifestyle would protect him from profiling. #WRONG.”
