Some Empire cast members want Jussie Smollett fired, as they feel betrayed by him, and also for damaging the show’s image, TMZ has reported.
According to the site, several of the “Empire” actors are very pissed and feel if the management of FOX do not dismiss Jussie, he should exit on his own because he no longer deserves a slot on Empire.
This cry out is as a result of the backing he received from the cast and crew of the show when the saga first started. But after recent evidence, the show of support they showed has made them deeply hurt and ashamed.
Reports have also said everyone is concerned about how much damage Smollett has done to the reputation of the hit TV series.
They feel the damage can continue if FOX do not act fast.
One positive for Jussie though, some actors who are cast members are still solidly behind him.
Jussie was detained yesterday and is currently facing a felony charge of disorderly conduct for filing a false police report.
He got released after posting a $10k bond and has been instructed to have no contact with the Osundairo brothers.
