co-creator, says there won’t be any Jussie Smollett jokes on the show.

When speaking about ‘potentially referencing Smollett’s reported attack on the show’, he said “No man, it’s a straight up tragedy.” He continued by saying; “The whole situation is in for turn. Particularly for the City, there’s bigger problems for them to handle.”

Sadly, the story back fired after police while carrying out further investigations accused the actor of staging the attack because he wasn’t satisfied with his salary in the Empire drama series. Smollett and his attorney have since stood by his story.
