Taraji P. Henson takes a jib at Ryan Seacrest on the #Oscars Red Carpet
Taraji P. Henson just made a subtle dig at Ryan Seacrest while she spoke with him on the 2018 Oscars red carpet. The Empire actress attended the ceremony in support of her friend, Mary J. Blige, who was nominated for two awards. Although the E! red carpet host made it through nearly two hours of coverage without anyone making a negative comment towards him on-camera, the 47-year-old couldn’t help but address the elephant in the room.

Late last year, Ryan shockingly revealed that he was being investigated by E! following sexual misconduct claims from a former stylist. The network determined that the claims were unsubstantiated, but now that stylist — a woman named Suzie Hardy — has come forward with her story of misconduct and harassment at the hands of Ryan.
In an interview with Variety, Suzie revealed that she worked for Ryan for seven years, until she complained to HR about the host.
