Earlier this morning, #TarajiPHenson went off on a skincare company for false advertising. Under an Instagram post, the actress dragged Urban Skincare Rx—which is owned by a white woman named #RachelRoff in North Carolina—for using her face in one of their ads!
“THIS IS A FALSE ADVERTISEMENT!!!!!!!!!!! I AM NOT THE SPOKESPERSON FOR THIS BRAND!!!!! I have NEVER used that serum a day in my life!!!!! THIS IS FALSE NEWS AND JUST A PLAIN LIE!!!!!” Henson screamed through text. According to @Blast, Henson had previously got in their a**es about including her name in a radio commercial. We are told that the company eventually took the post down after Taraji read them for filth, but there’s some other tea that we have to get y’all hip to!
Some of you who may already be familiar with Urban Skincare Rx know the company used to have two co-owners—Rachel Roff and Charity Washington! According to our source, Roff allegedly used Washington to lure in black clients and media contacts which is why there are still pictures of her up on the website! Once she got everything she wanted, Roff allegedly cut ties with Washington, but she decided to let it go and let karma take over.
I mean, why does a white woman own and develop products for an urban Skincare line in the first place? She must be trying to get her market share of the black dollar! I ain’t mad, chile :nail_care::skin-tone-4: but what in the “Get Out” is this?!
Anyway, Roff took some personal jabs at Henson on her Instagram. She quoted Maya Angelou “Still I Rise” as if she is unphased by Taraji.
