Taraji Claps Back at Fan Who Tried to Give Her a History Lesson

Taraji Claps Back at Fan Who Tried to Give Her a History Lesson

The actress knows her stuff.

Published June 29th

When will social media trolls learn that Taraji P. Henson is not the one? One hater learned this the hard way when trying to school the Empire breakout star on African-American history. Taraji's response left nothing else to be said.

The actress posted an image addressing the "light skin vs. dark skin" debate, citing a letter William Lynch wrote in 1712 where slave owners predicted that the skin-tone divide would continue for years. After the fan called out Taraji's evidence for being false, she clapped back in a very direct way.
