Fans of Empire or of Empire’s ‘Jamal’, was not happy campers after Jussie Smollett’s “cryptic message” on Twitter last week.
His tweet really set off a lot of fans in a negative way-

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time w/ @EmpireFOX. I love you all. Truth. Time 2 make a record & some movies.  🌹

Jussie wanted people to know that he didn’t mean for fans to take his tweet the way that they did.
And after seeing ‘Jamal’ get shot by ‘Freda Gatz’ while walking the red carpet, the fans took his message as Jussie wasn’t coming back to the show for season three.
“I was thinking like my little core group of amazing fans would be like, ‘What?’ But it just went so much further. Like there were calls about it and Lee (Daniels” was getting death threats about it.” Jussie said in an interview after the second season ended.
He also said, “It was hilarious to watch. Hilarious!”
“I’ll be back season there and hopefully season four if I don’t piss everybody off.”
And he ends it with, “I hope it’s in the cards in the future because when we work together and we we’re able to play with each other, there something that’s satiated in my spirit.”
