Taraji P. Henson Says No To The N-Word On “Empire”

Terrance Howard recently made news when he said he believed characters on “Empire” should be allowed to use the “N-word.”

“I’m mad that we don’t say n—- in the show,” he admitt. “Why is TV showing something different from the reality of the world? Why is there a thing called censorship that stop people from hearing everyday talk? We use n—-every day. It’s become part of a conversation—why aren’t we using it in the show?”

Yeah, right Lucious. Besides the fact that the controversy alone would overshadow the show, it’s simply not needed.

Luckily for us, Taraji P. Henson is the voice of reason. Taraji was leaving a restaurant when a TMZ videographer asked her about using the controversial word. “No, you would piss people off,” she replied.


We all know what Cookie says goes so this is probably the last we’ll hear about this issue.
