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?”

  1. 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…

  2. 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.
