Oscar winner Halley Berry distanced herself from the International Women in Media conference this week. According to Times Live, she wrote a tweet telling her fans that she will not be attending the conference.
“To clear the air… I will NOT be attending
#WimCon2018. I apologize to any of my fans who were mislead – I know NOTHING about this, I have never heard of it. It’s shameful that @21stcg_Global would advertise this way. Thank you @TherealTaraji for letting people know,” she wrote on August 11th.
This comes just days after Empire star Taraji P Henson slammed the organizers of the International Women in Media conference for “false advertising.”
Henson originally tweeted days before a variety of tweets showing an advertisement for the conference with a picture of her and various other women, including Halle Berry.
“FALSE ADVERTISEMENT! REMOVE MY NAME AND PICTURE! I WILL NOT BE AT THIS EVENT. THIS IS NOT OFFICIAL,” she wrote in one tweet with the pictures.
