HELLO AMERICA!—Obviously Taraji P. Henson is taking her “Empire” character of ‘Cookie’ extremely serious even when she takes off the makeup and transforms herself back into her original self. The actress recently let it be known that she was furious with the police covering the University of Southern California campus who profiled her son Marcel, who was considering attending the university.
The idea that he was stopped and questioned because he had his hands in his pocket is intolerable. Further, she was not going to spend $50,000 for that kind of treatment. “I’m sending my son to Howard University,” she stated. “This kind of treatment is unacceptable and it won’t be tolerated!”
