Taraji P. Henson just issued an apology to the same police officer she had earlier accused of racism.

The “Empire” star had accused a Glendale cop of profiling her son during a traffic stop, but Glendale cops retorted by releasing dash cam video of the stop, which depicts the world’s most polite traffic stop, in other words, the cop could not have been nicer. Taraji’s son, Marcel Johnson was stopped over a crosswalk violation and possession of Ritalin without a prescription.

Taraji now says, “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.” She adds, “Sometimes as humans WE overreact without gathering all of the facts. As a mother in this case I overreacted and for that I apologize.” h/t tmz

Translation: Marcel probably wasn’t exactly straight with his mom on what went down.
