Host Taraji P. Henson was on her Queen ish tonight as she gave her monologue to open the 2022 BET Awards.  Watch it inside.

 

 

Taraji P. Henson walked out to “The Kings Affirmation” by INIKO, the viral TikTok song, before opening her monologue for the 2022 BET Awards!

She turned her attention to blasting the Supreme Court after their horrific decision of overturning Roe vs. Wade saying:

Just a reminder, back in May, she re-introduced herself as Dr. Taraji P. Henson after receiving an Honorary Doctorate degree from her former college, Howard University:
