Jussie Claims Innocence to "Empire" Cast. Here's How They Reacted...
The fool actually left the courthouse and went right to work. On one hand, you could admire Jussie Smollett's work ethic I can't even say that with a straight face. If it were me, after the Thursday Jussie had (see Chicago Superintendent SPANKS Smollett, Digs at Celebrities Who Supported Him and Don Lemon tries DEFENDING Piece of Sh!t Jussie Smollett), facing my coworkers on Empire isn't something I'd want to do. But Smollett showed up. To say he's innocent.
Yeah. Not all of his cast members are buying it either.
Jussie Smollett betrayed the trust of his "Empire" coworkers and damaged the show's image, and now several cast members want him written off immediately ... according to our sources.
We're told many of the "Empire" actors are "f**king furious" and feel if FOX honchos don't fire Jussie, he should quit on his own ... because he doesn't deserve a spot on the hit show.
The feelings of animosity stem from the fact everyone on set had Jussie's back after the "attack," but in light of the new evidence police have laid out ... many of them feel hurt and embarrassed.
The funniest part of this is Jussie (allegedly) set up the hoax because he was upset with the tens of thousands of dollars per episode. Now it looks like he'll be making zeros of thousands of dollars.

One hundred grand an episode, and he wasn't happy about it. When will we hear about how greedy Jussie is for demanding more?
What a piece of sh!t.
