Every once in a while, a troll messes with the wrong person and get their butt handed to them with a perfect clap back and that’s exactly what happened when Taraji P. Henson had to check a fan for calling her a “black racist.”
When Taraji decided to celebrate herself with a meme of a Black women that read, “Her hair defies gravity, her skin absorbs light” and the hashtags #ProudBlackWoman and #BlackIsBeautiful, one troll took it upon himself to tell Taraji that she needs to celebrate every woman’s beauty, not just her race.
The troll definitely bit off more than he could chew when he came for Taraji. The Empire star responded, “What does celebrating MY BLACK beauty have to do with being a racist? You are ignorant and clueless.”
Guess someone picked the wrong person to mess with. Taraji isn’t here for your nonsense.
