The question is asking about Shen's TAUNT, not his ultimate. I'm actually gonna test this out in a game, as I'm curious.
All right, so I tried it, and it went exactly as I figured it would. The Zhonya's did cancel the taunt, though the units DID display an interesting reaction. After I popped the hourglass, the minions + Annie Bot all paused, the taunt effect still hovering over their heads. While the taunt effect remained visible over their heads, they went to auto-attacking the minions around. Following this the taunt effect disappeared, and Annie Bot retreated. I'm not sure if someone can command a champion during that period when the visible effect is still present.
