The Empire actress Taraji P. Henson has been involved in the calling to order of a couple of tweeps after an announcement that she would be part of a Women in Media conference happening next month at the Sandton Convention Centre with Bonang Matheba as the MC.
The lineup, for the conference that is set to take place on September 5, was announced at a media briefing held on Tuesday.
In a short online video posted on the event organizer’s Twitter page that has since been deleted, a smiling Queen B is seen announcing that Halle Berry, Taraji P Henson, Connie Ferguson will be part of the line up coming to the conference.
Tweeting in capital letters, Taraji responded saying: FALSE ADVERTISEMENT! I WILL NOT BE AT THIS EVENT. AGAIN PLEASE REMOVE MY NAME!!!
FALSE ADVERTISEMENT! I WILL NOT BE AT THIS EVENT. AGAIN PLEASE REMOVE MY NAME !!! https://t.co/7gfqtUMimA
She has since responded to several other tweets, saying the same thing, even adding that she is pissed, and disappointed that the event has been using her name. The event organizers have not responded to Tweets as yet.
