Hate-crime hoaxer Jussie Smollett will not appear in the last two episodes of “Empire” this season, as he stands accused of a felony for orchestrating an attack against himself and blaming it on supporters of President Donald J. Trump.
“The events of the past few weeks have been incredibly emotional for all of us. Jussie has been an important member of our EMPIRE family for the past five years and we care about him deeply. While these allegations are very disturbing, we are placing our trust in the legal system as the process plays out,” the executive producers of the show said in a statement.
“We are also aware of the effects of this process on the cast and crew members who work on our show and to avoid further disruption on set, we have decided to remove the role of ‘Jamal’ from the final two episodes of the season,” the statement continued.
The move is akin to a suspension for the star actor. There is no word on whether Smollett will be appear in the next season of the show.
“We understand the seriousness of this matter and we respect the legal process. We are evaluating the situation and we are considering our options,” Fox said Thursday.
Smollett was booked into the Cook County Jail for felony disorderly conduct – the crime which encompasses filing false statements in Illinois – and later released on $100,000 bond.
Jussie Smollett declined to make his first public statements since being charged with disorderly conduct when leaving court after posting bail.
Local media and reporters were seen on camera mobbing Smollett and asking questions about his now-exposed hate hoax. Smollett was surrounded by security guards, and seemed to be in the presence of his lawyers.
Smollett made a $10,000 payment and surrendered his passport to the court in the proceedings. Sources described the Empire actor and hoaxer as shaking his head and taking deep breaths throughout the hearing.

Hunter Biden Laptop Store Owner Speaks Out After Going Into Hiding
John Paul Mac Isaac has closed down his computer repair business.
The civilian whistleblower who released the shady contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop to the public through Rudy Giuliani has come forward in a new video, rejecting attacks on his character following his exposé of Biden family corruption. John Paul Mac Isaac has been forced to shut down his Delaware computer repair business in the wake of his whistle-blowing.
Mac Isaac spoke publicly for the first time since October in a new video released Friday. In his video, he details his family’s track record of military service, disproving liberal assertions that he acted as an agent of Russia in exposing Biden corruption.
Mac Isaac became the legal owner of what formerly was Hunter Biden’s water-damaged laptop when the younger Biden failed to pick up the device following its repairs at Mac Isaac’s shop, surrendering the property to Mac Issac pursuant to the repair agreement he signed. Mac Isaac has been maligned as a thief or a hacker, but his actions in revealing information detailing Joe Biden’s involvement in Hunter Biden’s corrupt business dealings have been entirely legal, ethical, and within his rights.
Big League Politics has reported on Mac Isaac’s account of his interactions with the FBI regarding the laptop. Mac Isaac has asserted that FBI agents attempted to convince him to stay quiet about the device’s embarrassing contents revealing Biden family corruption, expressing his shock that the highest level of American federal law enforcement would instruct a citizen to keep their mouth shut about Hunter Biden’s corrupt business dealings with Burisma in Ukraine.
Mac Isaac forcefully rejects liberal assertions that he released the younger Biden’s embarrassing laptop contents in the capacity of a Russian agent, and denies false reports that he “hacked” the troubled Biden’s Mac.
“To imply that I’m a hacker and that that information was hacked has had an irreversible impact on my business and my character.”
