Did Taraji P. Henson serve Ryan Seacrest some shade on Sunday’s Oscars red carpet? In Twitter’s never humble opinion, that would be a definite “yes.”
Per IndieWire, the two were chatting about the success of Mary J. Blige, when Henson dropped a nugget of wisdom some thought was rather pointed.
“The universe has a way of taking care of the good people, you know what I mean?” Henson said while touching Seacrest’s chin, seemingly to make sure he was paying attention to her words.
Seacrest’s turn on the carpet was clouded by claims of sexual harassment by his former stylist, Suzie Hardy. Seacrest has disputed the “reckless allegations” and an investigation by E! found the allegations could not be substantiated.
Henson previously shared harsh words for manager Vincent Cirrincione, who has been accused by nine women of harassment, in February on Instagram. The same month, Variety reported Henson cut ties with Cirrincione.
Of Henson’s exchange with Seacrest, Twitter was certainly here for it. One user said, “Taraji plays no games … Thank you queen!”
Others thought she should walk away with a statue for her remark.
“And the award for best shade goes to Taraji P Henson,” one member of the Twitterverse wrote.
Others joked Henson “absolutely put a curse” on Seacrest.
Henson’s rep did not immediately respond to USA TODAY’s request for comment.
