"Person Of Interest" Star Taraji P. Henson Pops Off About Being EXCLUDED From The Show's Publicity
Talk about a snub! Actress Taraji P. Henson took to her Facebook Fan Page to express how confused and upset she was that CBS and others decided to exclude her from all promotions of the upcoming new drama, "Person of Interest." I mean, she is the female lead on the show.
It's bad enough CBS did not include the 2-time Academy Award nominee Taraji Henson in any tv promotions of the new suspense drama "Person of Interest" (a still picture of Taraji from the show is above). But TV Guide also snubbed her from the cover story about the show. She said:
WOW!!!! TV Guide is NOT including me on the cover with my cast members….....I am the female lead of a 3 member cast and I’m not included on the cover!!!!!! Do you see the shit I have to deal with in this business…..I cram to understand!!!!
And after removing it, she posted:
I swear you guys keep my spirit lifted cause it ain't easy AT ALL for a sister in Hollywood. Your love is God sent!!!! Thank you ALL from the bottom of my heart. Wanted to tell you all this on live TV at the Emmys (if I'd won) but......oh well. Muah!!!!!
I'm not even mad at her for poppin' off. She was also not included on the IMDB page for the show. I've personally seen the "Person of Interest" promos a million times on CBS and I didn't even know Taraji was on the show--seeing that they ave yet to include her. Very interesting. Still, the show premieres tomorrow night on CBS at 9pET.
