Fans Are Pissed That Jussie Smollett Returned to ‘Empire’
Fox’s hit show Empire returned with Jussie Smollett this week, and fans went crazy given that in real life the actor faces 16 felony counts for an alleged hate crime hoax.
In the episode, his character Jamal ended his engagement when his fiancé, Kai, couldn’t agree with his family’s illegal actions, which he eventually had to address in the show.
“I don’t know if y’all been reading the blogs and all the foolishness, but it’s kinda been a tough week,” Jamal said in the show.
Of course, it was the irony of ironies. And fans erupted!
