Looks like Jussie Smollett TRIED IT with his fellow cast members, on the set of “Empire”.  The disgraced actor showed up on the set to call a meeting with his fellow actors, to apologize YET maintain his innocence!

Via TMZ:

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.  Read more from the source HERE

Fox released a statement confirming that they’ve decided to remove Jussie from the final two episodes of the season.

The statement reads:

“The events of the past few weeks have been incredibly emotional for all of us. Jussie has been an important member of our EMPIRE family for the past five years and we care about him deeply. 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.”

Fox says producers Lee Daniels and others ALL signed off on the decision to remove Jussie from the show!
