Celebrity reactions to charges against Jussie Smollett being dropped

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."


Gabourey Sidibe, who also stars on Empire, posted this on Instagram with the following caption: "It’s weird that y’all decided that the police were being 100% honest about this case."

Director Ava DuVernay double downed on a previous tweet she had made about the Chicago PD being inconsistent and corrupt.

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.

Former actor turned right-wing conspiracy nut James Woods tries to link this back to George Soros.

Jussie's family released a statement.

The Empire writers indicated that Jussie will be returning to the show.
