‘Empire’ star Bryshere Gray arrested in Chicago

Another Empire star has found themselves running into trouble with the law.

The popular actor was booked on a misdemeanor charge and released. He was also cited for not having a license or insurance.

Just last week, Empire creator Lee Daniels shared his embarrassment over the hate crime case involving Jussie Smollett.

In an interview with Vulture, the Oscar-nominated and openly gay director said of now-dropped charges that Smollett faked a homophobic, racist attack, “I’m beyond embarrassed. I think when it happened, I had a flash of me running from bullies. I had a flash of my whole life, of my childhood, my youth, getting beaten.”

He said did not keep up with local coverage in Chicago because he was tied up “putting out fires,” but if Smollett did lie, it would feel like a major betrayal.

Smollett did not appear in this season’s final episodes of Empire, a series about a family that runs a record company. Smollett played Jamal Lyon, son to Taraji P. Henson‘s Cookie Lyon, in the show that will end after its next season. Daniels confirmed last week that the actor would not appear in the final season.

“Of course, there’s some doubt,” Daniels said. “I’m telling you that because I love him so much. That’s the torture that I’m in right now, because it’s literally if it were to happen to your son and your child, how would you feel? You would feel, ‘Please God, please let there be that glimmer of hope that there is some truth in this story.’ That’s why it’s so painful. It was a flood of pain.”

Daniels told Vulture that he has had to detach himself from the scandal, which attracted attention across the country and beyond.

“We weren’t there,” Daniels said. “I can’t judge him. That’s only for the … lady or man with that black robe and God. I had to detach myself and stop calling him because it was taking away the time I have for my kids, the time I have for my partner. It was affecting my spirit and other shows, everything.”

The gay community is a force, a movement that will carry the mission of Satan and they must have representation from each groups, when you have a group of people who are weak, always want to fit in, seeking attention, and wants to live like their oppressors its easy to find any one to be your spoke person, so Lee Daniels is nothing but poison to the black community if the negro says racism dont exist what will make him say that a man with a man is wrong, thats why he is writing only scripts with man sleeping with man. Nothing but nonsense

That's called being stupid for no reason. There is nothing that he can say to justify this action.
