Jussie Smollet Will No Longer Appear On “Empire”

Looks like Jussie Smollett won’t be making an appearance on the last two episodes of “Empire!”

I mean…

The production team released a statement saying they are putting their “trust in the legal system as the process plays out.” They want to avoid any more disruptions with filming, therefore removing the role of “Jamal.”

Smollett, on the other hand, continues to deny his involvement in staging his attack. He gon’ deny till he die! Yikes.

Fox stood by the actor until Smollett’s recent arrest. They even released a statement last week that they would not be writing off his character, for Smollett is an important part of the set.

Welp. There goes that…

Fox, in their newest statement, say they are now “evaluating the situation” and considering their options.
