Jussie Smollett Absent from ‘Empire’ TV Promo After Hoax Attack

Jussie Smollett Absent from ‘Empire’ TV Promo After Hoax Attack

A promotional video for the Fox series Empire posted online is notably missing one of its stars, the now-indicted felon Jussie Smollett.

The star’s absence comes after he was arrested last month for staging an attack against himself, according to Chicago Police.

In January, Smollett claimed that he was attacked by two masked men who beat him, put a rope around his neck, dumped a chemical on him, and yelled “This is MAGA country!” He also claimed that the men called him racist, homophobic slurs.

Chicago police announced in February that they believe he planned the attack himself and lied about it.

However, in a statement after his arrest, Fox maintained that he was “not being written out of the show.”
