Taraji P. Henson Responds to 50 Cent's 'Empire' Diss

Taraji P. Henson is firing back at 50 Cent for criticizing her hit TV show Empire.

The 46-year-old actress took to Instagram after he poked fun at the ratings and promoted his Starz show Power.

“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 😘😘😘,” Taraji wrote.

“Well look at the bright side at least. You can eat your trophies,” 50 originally wrote on Instagram in a since-deleted post. “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.”

Taraji even showed her support for Power actress Naturi Naughton, writing, “Sooooooooo proud of you @naturi4real I WANT YOU TO KNOW I will NEVER let any NEGATIVITY come between the LOVE I have for my sisters!!! As women we put up with enough BS. I will NEVER add to that stress and heartache!!! YOU ARE DOPE on #Power and in life!!! #BlackGirlMagic SHINE BABY SHINE ’’’”

    Power is great, but 50 Cent is lame. Also love Empire.

  • jane

    taraji is crass, having money and a hit show did nothing for her ghetto character

  • SquidBillie

    She’s obnoxious, and it looks like she’s adopted J-Lo’s stupid squinty-eyed, open-mouthed look for the cameras. Gee, THAT’S original.

  • plez

    Power is a much better show than Empire. Empire loss it’s way after the first season. Empire is about fashion, celeb appearance and selling songs NOT about a interesting storyline.

  • Gina

    50 always acting like a petty bitch. “Loose change always makes so much unnecessary noise” lol. That was a perfect comeback.

  • fromanotherplanet

    You cannot even properly use simple punctuation but you have the audacity to call someone ghetto and crass?????

  • fromanotherplanet

    Go back to first grade, love. Idiots in glass houses should not throw stones.

  • GFW

    Her response should be no response.
    It is more powerful, elegant, and gets the message across better.
