Relax people, I’m sure it’s all in good clean fun. Since Empire premiered last year, many people have compared it to 50 Cent‘s Starz series Power.
50 Cent has taken jabs at the show over the last year, and it seems like Lee Daniels gave his official response to 50 on the season two premiere of the Fox hit show.
In a scene Cookie, played by Taraji P. Henson saw something on social media from 50 Cent and she called him “thirsty”. Naturally in 50 Cent fashion, he responded. In the IG post seen below, 50 said he couldn’t believe Cookie called him “thirsty”. In a second clip he said “You know me and Cookie go way back, I hit that.”
It’s totally fine people, notice he said Cookie and not Taraji. Maybe Lee Daniels and 50 Cent can end TV beef once and for all by letting 50 come on the show and square off with Cookie face to face.
If this happens, I want my 15% and a writer credit.
