Can A Sista Get A Break? Taraji P. Henson Gets Snubbed In CBS Promo


Can a sista get a break? – is the question actress Taraji P. Henson is asking CBS and other media outlets as the Emmy nominee has be excluded from current promo on the upcoming new drama, “Person of Interest.”

Henson, not able to understand the deliberate snub, took to her facebook page to vent to her fans about CBS and the recent TV Guide omission of her lead character on the cover with the other cast members.

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!!!!!

Sigh. It’s a shame to think mainstream media still uses racist tactics to hold back talented actors. While the show has now already aired (CBS 9/ET), its apparent that CBS will lose out on potential viewers by not highlighting one of its obvious stars.

Of course, MSDTV will keep you posted.
