Taraji says NO to the ‘N-Word’ on EMPIRE while Terrence Howard wants to use it!
(CNN)Terrence Howard would like a little bit more reality on his hit show “Empire.”
The actor, who plays hip-hop recording mogul Lucious Lyon on the series, recently told Entertainment Weekly that’s he’s “mad that we don’t say n****r in the show.”
“Why is TV showing something different from the reality of the world?” Howard asked. “Why is there a thing called censorship that stop people from hearing everyday talk? We use n***** every day. It’s become part of a conversation. Why aren’t we using it in the show?”

Terrence trying to make this show real as he can while he can
I think it’s a word that the African American community is torn about..so yes, I would like to see the issue addressed because it is a real part of our reality…
No need for it.

Terrance Howard just lost A LOT of respect. #InTheWhiteMansPocket
Doing fine without it. Leave it alone
What the fuck! Really!
It was featured in the pilot script (that was pitched to HBO and Showtime), along with other colorful terms. But I think they’ve done a good job telling the story without it.
