Lee Daniels Stopped Talking to Jussie Smollett


Back in January director Lee Daniels was the first person to jump to actor Jussie Smollett's defense after he claimed to have been attacked by racist homophobes in Chicago in what later turned out to be a hoax [click here and here if you missed that].

Lee admits he is beyond embarrassed and has stopped talking to Jussie...

Lee Daniels tells Vulture
"I’m beyond embarrassed. I think that when it happened, I had a flash of me running from bullies. I had a flash of my whole life, of my childhood, my youth, getting beaten."
"Of course, there’s some doubt. I’m telling you that because I love him so much. That’s the torture that I’m in right now, because it’s literally if it were to happen to your son and your child, how would you feel? You would feel, Please, God, please let there be that glimmer of hope that there is some truth in this story. That’s why it’s been so painful. It was a flood of pain."
"We weren’t there. I can’t judge him. That’s only for the f--king lady or man with that black robe and God. I had to detach myself and stop calling him, because it was taking away the time I have for my kids, the time I have for my partner. It was affecting my spirit and other shows, everything."

No, what he did was stop fucking Jussie. That's what he did and then he left Jussie to fend for himself.

Lee is trying to get back into the good graces of Hollywood. Too late for that, Lee. They are through with you.

You lose credibility with people who supportted you from day 1 defending obvious bullshitting lies. I'm sure it is embarrassing. I'm not an advocate for gay rights but I do understand wanting to be treated with respect.
Jussie was doing too much and then giving himself labels like the gay Tupac. Nigga, go sit down. Your shine has run it's course. We all have told lies but this took the cake!

I know Lee's ass work hard and all, but why does he always look like he smells like man ass, nuts and old clothes. With his money can he not hire them queer eye for the straight guy to hook his ass up? I don't understand being so fucking rich and looking so damn raggedly and scruffy. Nigga tighten yo shit up, Tyler Perry out here looking like he's a fan of whipped shea butter, regular haircuts, cologne and clean fresh clothes. As for miss hussy I'm done with that susan smith ass nigga.

He lost his job on the show, other opportunities and his friends have turned on him. He'll be living in his sister's guest room soon.
None of this was worth this fall from grace. I think Jussie has an undiagnosed mental illness.

Jussie lost his job and Lee lost STAR and EMPIRE. I think Lee is a little nutty, too, since he was STANNIN' for Jussie. Same with Taraji and Terrance.

I think all of 'em lost their damn minds.

@11:58 maybe not. Tyler Perry and EBT are starting that streaming service so Lee, if not now maybe in the future, will be a part of that. Just imagine, a streaming tv service that shows nothing but movies and plays from Tyler Perry Studios, Baby Boy, Soul Plane,and Lee Daniels wack films (The Butler is an exception).
