“All time low”- Jussie Smollett’s career hit hard by boycott

Ratings for the show “Empire” have dropped to an all-time low, according to The DailyMail, following the national outcry over the charges against actor Jussie Smollett being dropped.

“On Wednesday, 3.97 million viewers tuned in to watch the 20th Century Fox show, the lowest in the show’s history,” the DailyMail reported.

On March 13, the show returned from its midseason break, which began shortly after Smollett made national headlines for the alleged hate attack against him. The scandal quickly grew, and the Chicago Police eventually arrested the actor on 16 charges, including filing a police report.

“Empire” removed Smollett from the last two episodes before their break, but questions are rising now that the charges against Smollett were dropped earlier this week.

Former fans of the show are furious, threatening to boycott if the disgraced actor is allowed to come back to the show.

“If @EmpireFOX brings Smollett back everyone should boycott it. Faking a hate crime is not OK. It is a serious issue and his lip service is not playing #boycottempire,” said one fan

“I’m disgusted at the never-ending line of so-called ‘celebrities’ that manage to circumvent the law and avoid real-world consequences for their self aggrandizing schemes. What rationale was used to condone this attempt to incite hatred between races. #boycottempire” said another.

“@EmpireFOX BoycottEmpire. @JussieSmollett you are an unethical Puke 🤮 No morals or integrity. You fake a racial attack and lied your butt off. You paid off the Prosecutor and pissed away 💯K’s of taxpayer $. Chicago Mayor and Police Chief know you are guilty. #BoycottEmpire”

“Anyone who continues to support @EmpireFOX is despicable… #jailjussie Fox should cancel this show immediately! #boycottempire”


“All charges against @JussieSmollett have been dropped. Really? So, new legal precedent has been set in #Chicago: If you’re rich and do anything good in Chicago, you can commit multiple crimes and get away with it. The decay of our society continues… #BoycottEmpire”
