Ryan Seacrest has been under fire after recent sexual abuse allegations against him from his former stylist. And E! was so worried about what might be said to Seacrest as he hosted the red carpet at the 90th Annual Academy Awards that they put the broadcast on a thirty-second delay just in case someone decided to say something out of line.
But E! didn’t seem to catch what the internet thinks was shade from Taraji P. Henson to Seacrest when she stopped to do an interview with him. Henson talked about how the universe always works things out with certain people and had some subtle body language along with her words to Seacrest.
Taraji P.Henson tells PEOPLE.com her comments were “misconstrued.”
“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 says.
When asked point-blank whether she was supporting the E! host, Henson replied “absolutely.”]
