Cape Town - Empire star Taraji P. Henson was clearly annoyed with Kaya FM presenter Bob Mabena’s questions during a live interview on Tuesday morning.

Instead of keeping his questions focused on her character, Cookie Lyon and the success of, Empire, Bob decided to take a completely different angle.

The radio DJ asked Taraji about celebrating her birthday on the same day as the 9/11 tragedy and the death of her late boyfriend. It was a little weird, to say the least.

But when Bob started questioning her about her son and her views on racial profiling in the US, Taraji clearly had enough. "Can we just talk about Cookie, please. I'm sorry but I don't mean to bring my son into this," she said live on air.
