'Incredible backfire'! Empire producers have 'removed' Jussie Smollett from this season's remaining episodes

So, let’s see how Jussie Smollett’s big salary bump gamble has paid off, shall we?

“The events of the past few weeks have been incredibly emotional for all of us,” said EPs Lee Daniels, Danny Strong, Brett Mahoney, Brian Grazer, Sanaa Hamri, Francie Calfo and Dennis Hammer this morning.

“Jussie has been an important member of our Empire family for the past five years and we care about him deeply,” the producers added. “While these allegations are very disturbing, we are placing our trust in the legal system as the process plays out. 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.”

But we thought he was a “consummate professional”! Oh well. Hopefully “Jamal’s” absence will be a permanent one. It’s a pain to film from prison anyway.

It’s about damn time.

And it couldn’t be happening to a nicer guy.

At least he got the attention he wanted. That’s something, right?

Ha!
