There's a reason why some entertainers like Taraji P. Henson are nominated for an Emmy award while others, like 50 Cent, can not- and have not. That is the message the Empire star left in a now deleted comment after the Power executive producer posted a photo of Vivica A. Fox that wasn't quite so nice.
It's the "crabs in a barrel" mentality that 50 Cent (Curtis Jackson) seems to have that continues to motivate his arrogant and bullyish behavior toward others.
At least that's what Henson pointed out in a now deleted comment left on Jackson's Instagram post; that depicted a side by side photo of ex-girlfriend Fox next to a - plastic surgery gone wrong photo of another woman.
I don't know why people would want to cross me. I would stay out of my way, if I wasn't me because I'm gonna keep winning. I think they do it for attention, then they get more attention then they want. I told you POWER was the show to watch. Now Empire lol forget it. #EFFENVODKA

Though Henson felt compelled to comment due to how much she "despise[s] bullies", according to Essence, she didn't allow her thoughts and feelings to remain there very long before she deleted her comment -- but not before The Shade Room caught a screen shot of it.
Oop! #TarajiPHenson made a #PostAndDelete about #50Cent's post referring to #VivicaAFox. View earlier posts A photo posted by The Shade Room (@theshaderoom) on Sep 6, 2016 at 1:29pm PDT
With what seemed to be a personal attack against Fox from the photo posted was clearly a deeper attack on another hit drama series, the FOX Wednesday night Empire, which stars both women.
" I told you POWER was the show to watch. Now Empire lol forget it," captioned Jackson in reference to the ongoing debate from many viewers asking which show is better - Power or Empire?
Henson, who stars as Cookie Lyon on the Lee Daniels created series, responded to Jackson's "crabs in a barrel" remarks with grace and class, telling him there's enough room for everyone to win and accomplishments should be celebrated instead of laughed at or torn down.
"I don't know about y'all but I really love to see other ppl win," replied Henson. "Use your "Power" to unite the ppl and uplift us ALL!!! #DoBetter"
If those words didn't resonate with the "In Da Club" rapper, possibly a reminder of her 2015 Emmy nomination or her 2016 Golden Globe win could persuade him to change his karma by changing his way of doing things.
