The other day, Taraji P. Henson took to Twitter and Facebook to express her thoughts of TV Guide leaving her off the cover that featured her new show “Person Of Interest” and two cast mates. TV Guide’s Editor-in-Chief responded to accusations with this statement:
“I made an editorial decision to do a story about the relationship between the two male characters on ‘Person of Interest’ and that’s who I was going to put on the cover. That has been my decision all along, ever since I saw the pilot. We’re certainly fans of Taraji Henson and her storyline on the show was never intended to be the focus of our cover story. I don’t know where there was a misunderstanding about this, but it’s been clear to everyone from the start. I don’t make decisions on who is put and not put on the cover based on race or gender.
“This week’s cover September 26 issue features the three stars of ‘Charlie’s Angels’ — Minka Kelly, Annie Illonzeh and Rachael Taylor. We are not pursuing a cover of ‘Person of Interest’ at this time.”
Whooooaaaa! In the words of Rick James “Cooooollllldddd Bloooooddded!”
Like we stated before, the argument doesn’t need to be taken up with TV Guide, Taraji really needs to target CBS for leaving her out of the promo that clearly only shows her co-stars in print and commercials.
Apparently, Taraji’s voice was heard because now when you go to the CBS website for “Person Of Interest”, you can see a pic of her on the main page.
Keep Talking Taraji Because It’s Working!!!
