Vivica A. Fox says she didn’t (and isn’t) experience Taraji P. Henson‘s work woes in Hollywood. She added that she was “good, blessed, and booked”. 

Earlier this week, TMZ ran up on iconic Vivica Fox and inquired what she thought of Taraji P. Henson’s call for action against continued abuse by Hollywood and pay inequality.

In December 2023, Taraji P Henson went viral when she broke down during an interview with Gayle King about the pay inequity she faces as a Black woman in Hollywood.

The Color Purple star became visibly emotional, with eyes full of tears as she revealed how the pay disparity and mounting expenses like taxes and payroll leave her earning less than what most people think she makes. 

“I’m just tired of working so hard, being gracious at what I do, getting paid a fraction of the cost. I’m tired of hearing my sisters say the same thing over and over. You get tired,” she tearfully disclosed. 

Keke Palmer, Viola Davis, Gabrielle Union, and other black actresses reposted the explosive interview while rallying behind Henson’s powerful stand against pay inequality in Hollywood.

But the Kill Bill actress has a different story to tell. According to Vivica, she cannot relate to not being paid a fair wage for her work in the entertainment industry

“You know, Darling, to each his own. You know what I mean. I’m very happy, very blessed, and to each his own,” Vivica replied to the reporter, who asked if she had any contributions to the conversation about pay inequality sparked by Taraji.

But she acknowledged Taraji for speaking up, giving the actresses who support the crusade a thumbs up.

 “I didn’t have that experience, so you know, but to get your piece out is important. I totally understand that,” Vivica continued. @And I love my girls for looking out for each other, but I’m good.”

Vivica’s comments have divided social media, with some thinking it was shady towards Taraji and facetious of the struggles of Black women in the industry. But others say Vivica was good for not falling into the oppressed Black women ‘syndrome’. 

What do you think?
