I used to watch Empire but will not anymore. I have heard this from many many people as well since the J Smollett fiasco. He portrays himself as marginalized and is anything but. He is guilty of a horrible number of acts and the Empire producers will be sorry they didn’t cut ties with him when they had every reason to. His character could have easily been written out and replaced by other talented individuals. Their ratings will suffer and eventually the show will be cancelled. It’s a shame they didn’t do the right thing and cut bait. I know at least 20-30 people who won’t watch the show in the future.
