UPDATE: Fox is not commenting on the future of Jussie Smollett, but it is not looking good. The official statement is there is no official statement. But, the streets are talking and they are saying that he will be CUT from the show. This is a drastic difference from what I had been hearing, that he would possibly be killed off. They may do him like James on "Good Times" and he just disappear never to come back. That would be crazy. I am sure the kids that still watch "Empire" will be talking about this in decades to come.
(AllHipHop Rumors) Jussie Smollett is in deep doo doo! The "Empire" star has been accused formally of orchestrating an attack on himself, then blaming MAGA hat wearers and more. I am not condemning him completely just yet, but it smelled weird from the very start. I mean, he is basically doo doo in the industry from what I can see. The sources are coming in and they are going hard. Now, a source from another company said that Jussie's role on the hit show will be greatly diminished going into the new season. And, when he is in scenes, they are on the sidelines. He had a number of big scenes, including a performance. The performance is dead.
And I have sources that this is the set up for Jamal Lyons, the character that Jussie plays, to be killed off the show. Remember, this is the show of Lee Daniels, the gay, rich and outspoken Black director that helms the show. Remember Daniels was blasting people for not supporting Jussie, even when they were supporting the actor. Daniel's was cursing and frothing at the mouth! He was pissed! Anyway, according to sources, he has set the table to kill Jamal off in the event this whole thing turns out to be a hoax.
I just want to know:
This dude has taken a lot of our collective LIFE over some BS? By the way, I used that Empire picture because it looks like the whole cast of characters is judging Juss.
