The current coronavirus crisis is bringing people from all walks of life together as we all face the same circumstances—this includes celebrities who are using their platform to connect with their fans. Jussie Smollett took to social media to provide a bit of musical healing for his fans in the hopes to make them cope as self-quarantine orders continue.
Former “Empire” star Jussie Smollett surprised many fans when he made his return to Instagram to flex his singing chops. Jussie has been keeping a very low profile these days, but apparently with all of the chaos going on in the world right now he decided to make his return.
In the video, which he captioned “Quarantine day 421…Hope ya’ll are staying safe. Spread love and kindness…not Rona,” Jussie is sitting in front of a keyboard as he begins to sing a lovely song with a powerful message.
As you already know, Jussie has been practically in hiding since January 2019 when he claimed that he was the victim of a racist, homophobic assault in Chicago while filming “Empire.”
The situation quickly spiraled out of control, he was charged with lying to authorities about the incident, fired from “Empire,” the charges were dropped and he is currently facing various civil lawsuits from the city of Chicago because they want him to pay back all the money they spent searching for his attacker that they claim never existed.
Meanwhile, there were several rumors swirling that Jussie would return for the series finale of “Empire”—however that was shut down by FOX executives.
Roommates, what are your thoughts on this?
