"Empire" Cast Begs and Whines For Producers to Let Jussie the Race-Baiting Liar Back on the Show;
Another Staffer Resigns from Kim Foxx's Staff

Extreme, toxic racism can be forgiven, as long as it's racism that's useful to The Struggle.

Empire co-creator Lee Daniels told a New York City morning show Wednesday that the fate of Jussie Smollett on the Fox hit is "in discussions" right now, but Taraji P. Henson, Terrence Howard and the rest of the series' top cast have already made their decision.

"Together, as a united front, we stand with Jussie Smollett and ask that our co-star, brother and friend be brought back for our sixth season of Empire," the Oscar nominees and the rest of the portrayers of the Lyon clan wrote in an April 19 letter obtained by Deadline that was sent to Fox Entertainment CEO Charlie Collier, Disney TV Studios and ABC Entertainment chair Dana Walden, Fox Entertainment president Michael Thorn, Daniels, Empire co-creator Danny Strong and various executive producers on the series.

Reiterating the support and intentions Henson briefly expressed on April 4 on The View, the correspondence signed by Bryshere Y. Gray, Trai Byers, Gabourey Sidibe and Nicole Ari Parker among others adds, "We understand the past months have been difficult to process--sometimes the headlines brought more confusion than clarity, yet we now have a conclusion to this ordeal."

...

"Throughout Empire's five seasons working with Jussie and watching how he has conducted himself throughout this traumatic event, we have come to know not just the character Jussie portrays, but also truly come to know Jussie's personal character," the letter reads. "He is kind. He is compassionate. He is honest and above all he is filled with integrity."

He is honest? He's a racist liar who tries to stir up lynch mobs to get a better salary.

"He is also innocent and no longer subject to legal uncertainty with the criminal charges against him having been dropped," it continued. "We are confident in his lawyer's assurance that the case was dismissed because it would not have prevailed."

Then they get political: "It's clearer every day that the extreme political climate in our country has only made our system of justice and the court of public opinion more unjust."

The "extreme political climate" in the country is due to racist hoaxsters like Jussie Smollett, and yeah, Chicago's system of justice was shown to be corrupt -- by letting a guilty man off just because he had some well-connected friends, like Michelle Obama's former chief of staff.

It now makes me happy to look back and remember that every one of Taraji P. Henson's attempts to make it theatrical movies has ended in failure and financial humiliation.

Meanwhile, another staffer resigns from Kim Foxx's office, this time Kiera Ellis, director of external affairs and press inquiries.

She follows two other staffers who have fled Foxx's corrupt office recently.

Update: A judge overseeing another case involving a hoax police report wants to know why the defendant in that case isn't getting the Jussie Smollett Treatment.
