Taraji P. Henson Apologizes To Police Officer She Called A Racist (VIDEO)

Taraji P. Henson from Empire made a public apology today to a police officer she accused of “racially profiling” her son Marcel.

Glendale police released a dash cam video today showing that the cop was nothing but nice to Taraji’s son, Marcel Johnson, and in fact let him go on a traffic violation and possessing Ritalin without a prescription.

Taraji said:

“I would like to publicly apologize to the officer and the Glendale Police Department. A mother’s job is not easy and neither is a police officer’s. Sometimes as humans WE overreact without gathering all of the facts. As a mother in this case I overreacted and for that I apologize. Thank you to that officer for being kind to my son.”

Perhaps her son wasn’t being straightforward with her in the beginning?

Good on Taraji for setting things right really quickly. She needs to talk to her son now, LOL.
