Taraji P. Henson is a goddess and when it comes to shade she is a queen.
Twitter had the tea on deck after the actress went right at Ryan Seacrest during an Oscars red carpet interview. Seacrest was seen as a controversial pick as a red carpet host as sexual misconduct allegations are hanging over his head.
Perhaps that’s why Henson decided to throw in an underhanded comment toward Seacrest during their short interview.
"You know what, the universe has a way of taking care of the good people, you know what I mean?" she said before flicking Seacrest’s chin.
While Taraji didn’t clearly reference the allegations against Seacrest, her tone clearly conveyed shade.
As previously mentioned, Twitter went in. See some of the best reactions below.
I literally just gasped out loud at Taraji bopping Seacrest on the chin while shading his character.— Craig Bro Dude (@CraigSJ) March 5, 2018
I can’t believe Taraji P Henson destroyed Ryan Seacrest on national television— Jon (@prasejeebus) March 5, 2018
The WAY Taraji just said to Ryan Seacrest “THE UNIVERSE HAS A WAY OF PROTECTING THE BEST PEOPLE” and looked at him directly and with her thumb lifted his chin up and said “YOU KNOW?” WAS SO CRazy uncomfortable & confrontational & I thought I saw Ryan lose his face #Oscars90— Joe Miranda (@Ellojoe) March 5, 2018
