Taye Diggs Defends Jussie Smollett / Calls For His Return To ‘Empire’

Published: Tuesday 2nd Jul 2019 by David

Taye Diggs feels Jussie Smollett has suffered enough and believes he should be allowed to return to ‘Empire.’

Jussie is accused of telling the general public that he was the victim of a racist attack even though he knew isn’t was true with hopes doing so would elevate his status within the world of celebrity.

Now, after watching the Chicago PD humiliated him by releasing private information lifted from his devices, he has learned that he has found a supporter in Taye.

Full story below…

I have no idea what people are going through. And to be honest, it’s kinda none of my business. He is a good friend of mine. I love him. He’s, he’s only done right by me. So you know people go through things. It doesn’t change who he was and who he is to me. It doesn’t change, you know, the attention that we still need to pay to, you know, homophobic. Like, the people, people trip out, just because; whatever happened doesn’t mean that, that the issue that he stands for don’t still exist.

Diggs made the remarks on ‘Inside the Black Actor’s Studio’ but, unfortunately for Jussie, is part of the minority as far as public opinion is concerned.

However, there are others who feel Smollett’s case has received more attention than crimes they believe mainstream media outlets overlook and ignore.





Do you agree with Diggs?

    Um, excuse me, but NOTHING has proven that Jussie lied about anything, so that “even though he knew it wasnt true” is extremely irresponsible, ESPECIALLY with the Chicago PD’s history of lying, intimidating witnesses, and falsifying evidence to convict young black men. Do better and stop relying on the court of public opinion, especially since the public is full of idiots.

      Taye Diggs is a F.AG with disdain and contempt towards black women. I thought he was CANCELLED after those disrespectful comments he made about never wanting to date a black woman. He just mad because none of them would agree to be his beard so he found a becky to do the job. He aint a big enough star to afford a black beard. Next it will be a mexican beard looking for a visa and a little come up. Hola espanol lol

    Taye Diggs is a real one along with the Empire cast who all want him back on the show. It’s the final season & Jamal’s character is the heart of the show & Cookie is the Glue of the show. Chicago PD is wasting money on a smear campaign instead of solving real crimes

    Are you forgetting that is the website that broke the story?

    At least someone is brave enough to think and speak out as individual instead of sticking with the crowd. I’m so tired of the “innocent until proven guilty” standard only being applied sometimes for some people when it’s supposed to apply to everyone all the time. Why should we trust the word of the police and the two brothers who admitted to attacking or pranking Jussie? Whether or not Jussie participated in the plan has never been proven so all of his so called supporters who have caved in to public pressure to distance themselves from him are truly cowards.
