I don't watch the show "Empire", but look at how now I know who this guy Jussie Smollett is, and that was the motivation for his fake attack (more notoriety then more money). He is back on the set and some of the cast is furious. I don't blame them. I think they should write him out immediately, and with a script just as he faked this one. His character should be a victim of a hate crime but the perpretators should get completely away with it so it can't be an ongoing storyline.
