Taraji P. Henson, Smollett's co-star on Empire, said that she believed in his innocence from the beginning "because I know him and I know his track record."

Actor Devon Sawa from Nikita wasn't as supportive.
Kandi Burruss and Tamar Braxton, who appeared together on Celebrity Big Brother, posted their support for Jussie in The Shade Room comment section.
