Joke's on Ryan Seacrest! Or is it? Taraji P. Henson's possibly shade-filled interaction with the E! host on last night's Oscars red carpet has folks sipping their tea...
Before the "Empire" hottie stepped onto the Academy Awards stage to introduce her good friend Mary J. Blige's Best Original Song performance, she talked to Ryan Seacrest about it all.
Ryan is currently embroiled in a bit of a scandal with Hollywood not feeling the fact he still hosted the red carpet - amidst the #MeToo movement - despite being accused of sexual assault by his former assistant.
When Ryan asked Taraji to comment on Mary's two Oscar nominations, here's how that went:
It's interesting. While many believe this was outright black-girl-style shade toward Ryan with the stroke of the chin and that "ya know?" remark, others believe she was subtly letting him know she SUPPORTS him. As if that "the universe has a way of taking care of good people" line was referencing him as the good person.
