“Talk about a diss! Actress Taraji P. Henson took to her Facebook Fan Page to express how confused and upset she was that CBS and others decided to exclude her from all promotions of the upcoming new drama, “Person of Interest.” After all, she is the female lead on the show.

It’s bad enough CBS did not include the 2-time Academy Award nominee Taraji Henson in any TV ads for the new suspense drama “Person of Interest”. But TV Guide also snubbed her from the cover story about the show.

On Twitter, she said she can’t believe the boldness of TV Guide:

WOW!!!! TV Guide is NOT including me on the cover with my cast members……..I am the female lead of a 3 member cast and I’m not included on the cover!!!!!! Do you see the sh*t I have to deal with in this business…..I cram to understand!!!!

Later, she tweeted:

“WOW @ TVGuide!!!!! Being a member of 2 academys I honestly have no words!!!!!”

Then on Facebook, Taraji posted this:

I swear you guys keep my spirit lifted cause it ain’t easy at all for a sister in Hollywood. Your love is God sent!!!! Thank you ALL from the bottom of my heart. Wanted to tell you all this on live TV at the Emmys (if I’d won) but……oh well. Muah!!!!!

Taraji was also not included on a movie database page for the show.

Henson stars as Detective Carter alongside Michael Emerson, Jim Caviezel, and Kevin Chapman.

The “Person of Interest” ads have been running for weeks on CBS, and Taraji P. Henson has never been featured or mentioned. Very interesting. Still, the show premieres Thursday night on CBS at 9p ET.
