JUST IN: Jussie Smollett’s Empire role just got SLASHED over hoax attack; Felony indictment coming SOON!

While certain Democratic candidates for president are suddenly waiting for the facts in the Jussie Smollett hoax scandal, the producers and writers of the Fox TV show Empire aren’t waiting for anything more. They’ve already slashed Smollett’s role in his last episode:

TMZ – Jussie Smollett’s “Empire” screen time is getting slashed in the wake of a growing sentiment that he staged the so-called “attack.”

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.

Less work for Jussie means more work for writers, who are busy making edits. In the past 24 hours, we’re told the script has undergone multiple revisions.



They better shoot last those 4 scenes quick because Smollett may not be around long enough to get it done. TMZ adds…

Jussie’s case is heading to a Grand Jury as early as Tuesday. Our law enforcement sources say the focus is presenting evidence that could lead to a felony indictment against Jussie for allegedly filing a false police report.

So Smollett goes from being the focus of the second to last Empire episode to being the focus of a grand jury hearing where he’ll probably get a felony indictment. I do like where this is headed now.

Throw the SOB in jail where he belongs. People like that just make it harder for real victims of violent crime to be believed.

Smollett lied to police in 2007 and pretended he was his little brother when he was pulled over by police for a DUI in Los Angeles …

Demonrats never go to jail. Jussie Smollett will probably NOT even be indicted or charged with a crime.

LOL – not helping.

Jussie Smollett’s low-life siblings share quote from career criminal, deranged thug Malcolm X in an attempt to defend their worthless thug brother … desperately trying to blame the media for Smollett’s crimes …

If he sent the threatening letter to himself will there be additional charges for using a federal agency (the USPS) to orchestrate the hoax?

I really do think he’s mentally ill and I’m betting that’s next try for his lawyers.

Again, what a self absorbed jerk. More , more, more, me, me, me. He wanted attention-now he is getting it. Ballsey Ford and all the other hoax perpetrators should not be given such stardom

Never fear – he’s gay, a ‘celebrity’ (snicker), black, a leftist and a Trump and conservative hater so he’ll turn out just fine. He’ll probably get even more roles in wicked Hollyweird. Getting fired or jail time doesn’t apply to ‘certain’ people.

It would be truly awesome if Empire writes of Jussie’s character as the tragic victim of a hate crime.

For his next job, he can try out for the NFL as a crappy QB and claim they wouldn’t give him a job because of race and collusion. He’ll get millions in a settlement and Nike ad.

Someone should ask Smollett if the ends still justify the means. The Talk (CBS) cited a poll where 97 percent of people felt he deserved to be punished.

Soon to be offered a multi-million dollar deal by Nike and MSNBC and CNN are bickering with each other on whom will get to hire him as a hate crime contributor
May he rest in a jail cell for a very long time and hopefully it is in hell

Some smart people are pointing out that hoax hate crimes are actual hate crimes, because the results can get people killed.

Now, if they cut the rest of the characters, the show would be watchable.

Maybe they can film a scene where he like gets attacked by two guys and they like get a noose and stuff and then they like put it around his head and they like yell a bunch of Trump stuff at him.

That would make for some great pro-liberal bias TV. Ratings would soar!

The left have turned raceism into a wonderful weapon that they now use every time they feel they are loosing to a conservative argument or idea. They have cheapened it to the point of distroying the true meaning

Either way, his character appears to be about to be killed off….so most important right now is admitting Smollett for suicide watch counseling, as his emotional instability and fury over not being taken seriously when he sent crushed aspirin and a fake threat note to himself is tame compared to the hate crime he committed in targeting whites who support Trump. Given the emotional instability of gay hollyweirdos, an abundance of caution is warranted for Smollett.Keep him away from hillary.

CPD just got a tip from a tenant of Smollett’s building that he was in the elevator with the two brothers before the “attack.”

Maybe for his punishment, he should be made to clean toilets at the CPD station & Trump’s toilets, or better yet, San Fran’s poopy sidewalks. He could wear a sign that says;… lying racists stink!

They should have done the right thing and killed off his character. Nobody knows who he was or his role on the show anyway except a small group of people, so I’m guessing he won’t be missed.

Fake a crime, do some time!

Thankfully, the CPD figured this out quickly before someone really got hurt over this.
