Jussie Smollett represents Hollyweird well. He’s an insecure, uninformed, ergo stupid egomaniac. And because of that, he’s always on the defensive.
So like most of his Leftist pals, he must test the water from time to time. And back in May of 2016, Smollett did a “fan” check.
As Style reported,
“Empire” co-star Jussie Smollett recently caused a social media storm after tweeting a cryptic message that implied he may be leaving the show.
“I was thinking like my little core group of amazing fans would be like, ‘What?’ But it just went so much further. Like there were calls about it and Lee (Daniels) was getting death threats about it,” Smollett said in an interview Friday at an event celebrating the second season finale of “Empire.”
“It was hilarious to watch. Hilarious!” he exclaimed.
Smollett says fans can chill out — he’s going nowhere.
“I’ll be back season three and hopefully season four if I don’t piss everybody off,” he said.
Cast members, including Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard, attended the event in Los Angeles. Howard alluded to his character, Lucious Lyon, getting back with Cookie, played by Henson.
“I hope it’s in the cards in the future because when we work together and when we’re able to play with each other, there something that’s satiated in my spirit,” he said.
All’s well that ends well for Smollett in 2016. But what’s happening now?
Apparently Smollett may have thought he was being written out of the show? Entertainment Weekly reported this:
The internet went wild Thursday as two Chicago media outlets reported that police believed Jussie Smollett wasn’t the victim of a recent attack, but instead, that he and his two supposed attackers staged the incident because the actor was being written off of Empire. The Chicago PD quickly struck those down as “uninformed and inaccurate” reports, while Fox and the Empire team strongly denied any possibility that Smollett, who has starred as Jamal Lyon for all five seasons, would be killed off the show. And while producers insist Smollett isn’t going anywhere, someone is being killed on Empire.
The Fox hit series, which returns for its spring run on March 13, has spent all of season 5 teasing a major death after the premiere ended with a flash forward of Lucious (Terrence Howard) standing over a casket. Speaking with EW after the episode, Empire showrunner Brett Mahoney revealed that the mystery death wouldn’t be solved until the end of the season, but it was an “impactful” one.
Who knows if Smollett believed he was to be killed off. Perhaps he pulled this publicity stunt in order to garner sympathy for his character?
Despite Smollett being a lying scumbag, Fox is sticking with him. Or so says Variety.
20th Century Fox Television and Fox Entertainment have voiced their support for “Empire” star Jussie Smollett after it was reported the actor and musician staged an attack on himself in Chicago. Chicago media had previously reported that Smollett staged the attack because he was being written off of the Fox series. However the Chicago P.D. said the reports of a hoax are still unconfirmed.
“The idea that Jussie Smollett has been, or would be, written off of ‘Empire’ is patently ridiculous,” the network and studio said in a joint statement. “He remains a core player on this very successful series and we continue to stand behind him.”
Reps for Smollett previously told Variety that reports Smollett staged the attack were “ridiculous rumors.”
The Empire Writers account tweeted, “The writers of Empire have never planned or even discussed writing Jussie Smollett off of the show.”
That’s generally what people say when somebody will be written off the show.
But in the world of Leftism, Smollett may get awards for his divisive deception.
And now we know the truth. Leftists say that we Conservatives now pile on Smollett for pleasure. Quite the contrary. We pile on Smollett for being a piece of sh*t liar. Moreover, one who tried to paint American-loving, president-supporting, salt of the earth people as racist homophobes.
We will continue to “pile on” Smollett and those who accepted his nonsense story until they offer a heartfelt apology to all of us.
