Taraji P. Henson Responds To Supposed Ryan Seacrest Shade, Says Comments Were 'Misconstrued'

Taraji P. Henson says she was not throwing any subtle shade while speaking with Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet at the 2018 Oscars.

If you don’t know, Taraji was one of the celebs who talked to Ryan on the red carpet, despite the sexual misconduct allegations against him.

“The universe has a way of taking care of taking care of good people,” Taraji said during her interview, while touching his chin. “You know what I mean?”

Now, Taraji is telling People her comments have been “misconstrued.”

“I did it to keep his chin up. It’s an awkward position to be in. He’s been cleared but anyone can say anything,” she said. She also said she “absolutely” supports him.
