Jussie Smollett Being Phased Out on Empire


Actor Jussie Smollett has his role on the Fox series Empire drastically cut after being accused of staging his own hate crime...
 
From TMZ
Production sources tell TMZ ... Jussie was supposed to have 9 scenes and a big musical number in the second to the last episode -- which is being shot now -- but 5 of his scenes have been cut, and his musical number has been 86'd.
As for the remaining 4 scenes ... we're told he's no longer the focus. The scene features an ensemble, meaning he's flanked by a number of cast members.
With his duties pared down, Jussie will be spending way less time on set. Instead of working every day this week, we're told Jussie's working Friday and possibly Thursday, and he won't be rehearsing.
Jussie is accused of paying two extras from the show to assault him on the street in Chicago and then blaming Donald Trump supporters [click here if you missed that].

Talk about an implosion. This is the beginning of the end for him. No way he will be allowed to stay on the show which is sinking in ratings anyway. The tension when he is on set will be high and so not worth it.

Jussie has a history of lying to police--during a DUI arrest he impersonated his brother

https://www.yourcentralvalley.com/news/actor-jussie-smollett-pretended-to-be-his-brother-during-california-dui-arrest/1795109371

Gave his brother's name to escape a DUI charge? Stupid, and unfair to brother.

Good! His scenes were over the top anyway. I want to see the older brother with bipolar in more scenes. Bring Frank Ocean on as a family member to replace Jussie.

You’re assuming and projecting a lot nonsense. With the Chicago PD leaking shit daily (*coughs* SR blog), the media has a lot of ppl fooled into thinking that Jussie orchestrated this attack on himself - which I don’t believe. I think Jussie was attacked, however, there are some missing details that Jussie is either withholding (to protect a loved one) or someone is framing him, hoping to discredit him and the black community - related to racist attacks from yt/trump supporters. The only logic that I can think of is, once this Jussie stuff is over, there will be some sort of attack or threat to black ppl. The media has been working overtime to discredit Jussie with leaks and rumors being reported daily. There’s a reason why Jussie is being attacked in the media - and let me tell you, I don’t think it has anything to do with the police being upset about a “false report” and everything about making Jussie an “example”. Trust, these CACs are up to something.

As for empire, I don’t believe they’re phasing him out. I think Jussie’s schedule has probably changed due to his recent legal issues. He may have even requested the limited scenes and shooting schedule. But I don’t think anyone is turning on him. I think they’re not trying to feed into the media frenzy that this shit has become.

CPD is not leaking anything, Jussie is not that important. FOI Act allows police to report certain info to the media. Jussie is guilty and you will find that out soon just wait for it. Maybe he will put some bass in his soft shaky ass voice on Empire now that he's the gay Tupac.
