Taraji P. Henson shaded the hell out of Ryan Seacrest on Sunday night during the Oscars red carpet.
Henson subtly threw a bomb in the E! News host’s face while discussing Best Supporting Actress nominee, Mary J. Blige. “The universe has a way of taking care of taking care of good people,” Henson said as she touched Ryan’s chin. “Know what I mean?”

Last month, Seacrest was accused of sexual misconduct by former stylist Suzy Hardy, who claimed he once behaved inappropriately with her. Details are unclear, but the moment news hit the Web, folks requested Ryan step down from his Oscars hosting position with E!.
The network, however, suggested that after thoroughly investigating, there was “insufficient evidence to support the claims.”
So … Ryan stayed in position despite celebrities vowing to not stop and talk with the network.
Henson was one of very few A listers to chat with Ryan and whelp, you see how that turned out.
Mary J. Blige also talked with Seacrest, but she took a different approach and raved about the 43-year-old and hosting Kelly & Ryan. She also supported Seacrest during an interview with The Associated Press, saying: “I love Ryan. He’s fighting for his identity … I don’t know the whole truth.”
