Taraji had time for Fiddy.
Taraji P. Henson doesn’t have time for bullies (which is what she called 50), but it looks like she had time for him when he came for her friend and Empire sister, Vivica A. Fox.
50 Cent has a history of beefs in the entertainment industry. Whether it’s a rapper, a music industry mogul, an ex, or even his son—no one is off limits. 50’s been trolling Actress Vivica A. Fox, who just happens to be his ex-girlfriend, for some time now. It all started when Vivica appeared on Bravo’s Watch What Happens: Live with Andy Cohen. She was asked what she thought about 50’s pose with Soulja Boy on the cover of XXL magazine, in which some claimed the rappers looked gay. Vivica answered that he looked like “booty snatcher.”
Once word got back to 50, it. was. on. 50 clapped back so fast, taking to Instagram, where he posted a video of Sesame Street‘s cookie monster, accompanied with the caption, “Vivica acting out how she eats ass.” From then on, it was meme for meme, insult for insult between the two. Now, it’s been almost a year since their exchange, and we thought it was over. But the way 50’s pettiness is set up, it’s never over.
Out of the blue, or as far as we know, 50 posted this side-by-side photo of Vivica A. Fox and a woman from the plastic surgery reality show Botched.
“I don’t know why people would want to cross me. I would stay out of my way, if I wasn’t me because I’m gonna keep winning. I think they do it for attention, then they get more attention then they want. I told you POWER was the show to watch. Now Empire lol forget it. #EFFENVODKA,” he captioned the photo.
The Shaderoom caught 50’s shade and reposted it on their page. That’s when it caught not only Vivica’s attention, but Taraji’s as well.
I’m guessing Vivica decided to take the high road and not revisit her drama with 50 because she didn’t quickly respond to his insults. However, her Empire costar had words for the rapper. Taraji took to the comment section under The Shaderoom’s post and called out 50 for trash-talking since its beginning. He has made Empire the rival to his Starz show, Power.
“USE YOUR ‘POWER’ to unite the ppl and uplift us ALL!!!” she wrote in the comment that she deleted a few moments later. But as always, TSR caught it all. View the rest above.
After seeing her friend swoop in to her defense, Vivica stepped up and gave her two cents…

Vivica only stepped into The Shaderoom to respond to Taraji’s clapback. However, she did take a classy jab with a quote from our First Lady, Michelle Obama.
“Thankx my dawling [email protected] I LOVE U TONS! When they go low we go high! #Unbothered #Empire,” she wrote.
