Sounds like ‘Empire’ has slashed Jussie Smollett’s screen time …
Jussie Smollett's 'Empire' Role Slashed in Wake Of 'Attack' Scandal https://t.co/M0voflrJip

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.
So much for that whole musical number thing.
James Woods had some harsh words of advice for Jussie.

Odds on James getting locked for #LearnToCode? Now, he did add another word TO the hashtag so he might be ok but … ya’ never know with Twitter these days.

Learn to code? I’d be surprised if he learned to tie his own shoelaces.
