Ryan Seacrest Taraji P Henson

Last night, the 90th Academy Awards ceremony took place at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California. The biggest buzz of the evening came courtesy of 'Empire' actress Taraji P. Henson, whose red carpet interview with embattled E! host Ryan Seacrest was widely misinterpreted by just about everyone.

Taraji was one of only 4 stars who stopped to even acknowledge Seacrest's presence on the red carpet. At one point, she said to him: "The universe has a way of taking care of good people, you know what I mean?"

"I agree," Seacrest responded.

After moving on to interviewer Wendi McClendon-Covey, who asked her how she was doing, Taraji responded, “I'm great now that I'm in your company."

That was also misinterpreted by nearly everyone on social media.

The slow folks on social media responded in typical fashion -- by adding to the confusion with their misinterpretations that Taraji was "throwing shade" at Seacrest.

Seacrest is currently in time out by Hollywood elites who believe the sexual harassment charges hurled against him by his former hairstylist -- a biological female.

Seacrest is the latest victim of a McCarthy-style witch hunt, where baseless sexual harassment allegations are made against people for political reasons, rather than moral or ethical reasons. Typical of McCarthyism, the people doing the mid-slinging are the ones who have the most to hide or the ones who have the most to benefit.

It is no secret that Ryan Seacrest is a closeted homosexual -- which is why ABC's investigation into sexual allegations made by a bio woman were found to be baseless.

The Taraji-Seacrest red carpet exchange is a classic case of people not knowing how to read body language. Taraji is smart enough to know that Seacrest is gay, and she also knows that the windstorm he is in will soon blow over and he will be top dog again.

Taraji confirmed that social media got it all wrong in an interview with PEOPLE.

“I did it to keep his chin up. It’s an awkward position to be in. He’s been cleared but anyone can say anything,” she said.

When asked whether she was in support of Seacrest, Henson replied “absolutely.”

Seacrest was appreciative of Taraji's kindness, tweeting: "Nothing but love for my friend @TherealTaraji. Thanks for hanging out with us on the #ERedCarpet! #Oscars".

    Morning

  • Alicia.Ashe

    I kinda liked her dress, but wasn’t wowed by Oscar fashion this year.

  • Junkanoo

    There several issues happening harassment,rape ,pedophilia none of which are baseless claims. There are a number of A-list stars who slept their way to the top and them l ignore ,they provided sexual favors for jobs and are not victims in my opinion but the Harvey Weinstein types in Hollywood should be exposed. I also want to hear the experiences of everyday women the focus shouldn't be so fixed on Hollywood and politicians and exposing the pedophile rings of the elites.

  • Jackie Byrd

    It's really sad that people want to see another person in a negative light that they will read into something that is not even there.

  • Quagsire!

    I like T.H.

  • XoXo

    Words of wisdom.

  • millz
  • Rayne

    What the prollem is? That wasn’t shade.

  • Alextra Ballard

    I almost didn't recognize Ms.Davis.... something is a tad off with her.

  • Bossy704

    Ryan Seacrest did not sexual harass anyone. They tripping.

    look like she got slapped with a Youngin stick.. she looks 20 years YOUNGER.. yet still GORGEOUS than ever,, ONLY Viola can out do Viola

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    It was low key this year

  • Alicia.Ashe

    I think the hair is throwing me off, I like the color and style.

  • Kanyade

    Congrats to Jordan Peele! Best Screenplay! or something. I didn't watch the Oscars, just the news this morning.
    Happy Monday, all!

  • Bonita Johnson

    That’s why I ?? me some Taraji and her real humble self....and I support Ryan too...I don’t believe all these hens that are crying assault .....sorry not sorry! I know how vindictive and vengeful women can get when they don’t get what they actually sought especially from a celebrity. And people shouldn’t be so quick to believe ANYBODY that cry’s rape or assault.

  • Diva4lyfe

    Ryan looked so down but I am glad that Taraji spoke out in support of him. He will be back on top with American Idol here soon. I am not in the accusers shoes so I just hope that whatever going on that they be truthful. Like the girl who was arrested for saying she was raped by a Clemson frat and found out she was lying. Come on folks you make it harder for folks who did have an incident and when they try to come forth no one will believe because of folks who are lying for fame. SMH

  • Quitedeliteful

    It is no secret that Ryan Seacrest is a closeted homosexual —
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    This is what I've always assumed about RS. I'm glad Taraji stands with him and wasn't afraid to be seen with him. If he didn't know before he knows now who his true friends are.

  • Quitedeliteful

    I can't believe that out of all the people he knows in Hollywood only four people were brave enuf to be seen with him. I'm all for women speaking out about rape and inequality and I'm all for them getting their due but I just can't with a lying thirst-bucket looking for a payday... I love that Taraji didn't let fear keep her from her friend on the red carpet. My kinda girl!!!

  • LexGirl

    I agree! When/if REAL victims come forward, they don't stand a chance bc of all the other immoral folk!!

  • Quitedeliteful

    I didn't recognize Viola Davis at first. I think she had a little 'work' done. Still, she looked beautiful. I like the hair, the dress -- everything about her was beautiful..

  • Kemi

    Big up to Jordan Peele!! Well deserved. Don’t see no shade in what she said but I’m slow on Mondays... lol

  • He seems gay

    I thought there was proof for all the people who were fired or demoted, and he wasn’t, so... If the man did nothing wrong, he did nothing wrong. Sad he’s being treated like a pariah if he’s innocent. At the same time, he could be guilty, but good for him for standing his ground if he’s innocent. I always thought he was gay.

  • He seems gay

    I would assume there are no true friends in Hollywood, almost like the real world.

  • KISSmyENTIREass

    Damn it's not like it a ton of people accusing him just one disgruntle ex employee. They clap like hell for Kobe..

  • KcoolMuziq

    It's only ONE thing Ryan can do to put those allegations once and for all to rest and he knows what it is.

  • imright

    & if she was ?! SO WHAT !!! ??

  • Browneyes

    she got an "F" from me last night. That hair and "PANK " dress were awful.

  • Browneyes
  • millz
  • Upgrade

    Right. They just want her looking like somebody’s auntie. Lol. She looked good! Great!

  • LuLu

    LMBOfffff!!! Not "PANK"! LOL!

  • chrissy w

    She did shade him, especially if she told someone that she feels better in their company...but you know how that go. Just like in corporate Amurrka...if you wanna go far don't burn no bridges.

  • Trace da Ace

    hmmmm....so we are not supposed to believe he said/did anything because he is a closet/no so closet homosexual???? I'm confused...its Monday and I'm still wishing I was at home....

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    "I love that Taraji didn't let fear keep her from her friend on the red carpet."

    And that's why she is so awesome.

    But I bet Ryan is rethinking all of those so called "friendships." If those people were willing to abandon him that quickly, he might want to keep that space between them, once he's back on top.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Really? I loved the hair and the PANK! LOLLOLLOL!!!!

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    That's the world we live in.

  • Lady_Elle

    People say that often... I think she/they could say this to each interviewer.

  • Lady_Elle

    This is a witch hunt for EVERY accuser without proof. It becomes your word against whoever you are accusing.
    I don't like the idea of trying / convicting someone via social media!
    Dangerous! You can destroy someone on accusations alone!

  • HIS4EVA

    i didn't think shade and i saw it. Taraji was just speaking positively. Now, Ryan's conscious is another story

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    People don't care about the truth.

    They just want to get attention and if that means trying to ruin someone's life or reputation, to get that attention, so be it. Dåmn shame.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Yuup. Friends that only like you when you are on top aren't really friends at all... So phony....

  • Phyllis

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    ??Dang it!!! I needed some good shade this morning .. ?

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    Dont I know. The ones that stick by you when you're down, deserve to be by your side when you're back on top. The rest should keep their distance.

  • bemetoo

    START SINGING... IM COMING OUT (COMING ) I want the world to know...

  • Jethro

    What's political about Seacrest? Did you space out thinking you were defending Trump?

  • Enoughsaid2020

    She was speaking very positive. The public will conti is to say your guilty, if when there is no evidence, or you have been cleared. SMH!

  • davine puddin

    You have to find additional ways of saying i am well. I am good. I am fine. Or i am blessed. I do not see the shade. If they cared about the me to movement why do hollywood still make roman polaski movies.

  • softness1

    We love to yell innocent until proven guilty, but the moment 1 person says something EVERYBODY drags his ass.. It's so crazy.. I'm sure the bulk of these women are telling the truth, but what about the small percentage that's lying ?? It happens all the time..

    I never believed the Claims, when they said it was a "woman".. Everybody knows Ryan is Gay lol.. He probably never touched a female a day in his life.

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    I'm glad Taraji did an interview with Seacrest. He's a fairly powerful person in Hollywood and I don't know who this woman is that accused him, but she better watch her back. I heard she's unemployed.

  • angrysolo
