50 Cent has since joined a group of colored celebrities clamoring for fair treatment following Taraji’s confession.

Upon hearing this, other actresses like Keke Palmer, Viola Davis, and Gabrielle Union chimed in with similar sentiments. In response to the confession, 50 Cent put out a public notice to pique Taraji’s interest in working with him. Via Instagram, he quipped:

In his post, he wrote:

“Damn @theterrencehoward call my phone I will get you the money they was supposed to get for you,” he wrIm not playing no games over here.”
