The feud between Vivica A. Fox and 50 Cent may be one-sided thanks to Taraji P. Henson. The actress stepped in to protect her “Empire” co-star from the rapper’s latest jab.

50 posted a side-by-side image of Fox next to a photo of Rajee Narinesingh, a woman whose face became unnatural-looking due to botched facial injections.

The MC seemed to accuse his long-time ex-girlfriend of angering him.

“I don’t know why people would want to cross me,” he wrote in the caption. “I would stay out of my way if I wasn’t me because I’m gonna keep winning.”

After hinting that Fox used him for attention, he went on to plug his Starz show “Power” and reignited his claim that “Empire” copied it. 50 capped off the diss with the hashtag #EffenVodka, a liquor he sponsors.

Henson caught wind of the post and felt compelled to defend her fellow actress.

“I [probably] should leave this alone but I despise bullies! Never understood that #crabsinabarrel syndrome,” she wrote in the comments of 50’s post. “But at least some aren’t falling for the silly BS!!! I don’t know about y’all but I REALLY love to see OTHER people win. So sad. USE YOUR “POWER” to unite the [people] and uplift us ALL!!!”

After dropping the hashtags #DoBetter and #ThereIsALWAYSRoomForAll, Henson tagged 50 in the comment.

“[A little advice] ’cause I am proud of your accomplishments Black MAN,” she continued. “Maybe your karma is blocking your blessings.” She capped off the message with the #Emmys hashtag, kisses and an unamused emoji.

Fox thanked TV’s Cookie Lyon for the support.

“Thanks my dawling [sic] sis,” the actress – who plays Cookie’s sister Candace – replied. “I LOVE [YOU] TONS. When they go low we go high!”

In similar fashion to Henson, she ended the response with a couple of hashtags of her own – #Unbothered and #Empire to plug the show.

Both comments have since been deleted.
