Did anyone else think that was awkward?
While presenting at the 2015 Emmy Awards, Empire co-stars Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson engaged in some clunky and strange banter. Things were already weird when Mr. Howard took it to the next level: He planted a sloppy kiss on Taraji’s cheek, and she did not look happy about it. Don’t believe us? Check out the exchange yourself, captured in GIF form.

It’s a little pixilated, but here’s what went down. Terrence kissed Taraji. Taraji looked surprised and weirded out. Then, she proceeded to wipe the spit (?) off her cheek and make a less-than-pleased face. Yikes! Cookie Lyon was not here for this ish…or so it seemed.
What do y’all think? Was Taraji really uncomfortable, or was it just part of the act? Sound off in the comments below.
