Jussie Smollett charges are now dropped. The “Empire” actor had 16 felony disorderly conduct charges dropped following Smollett being accused of orchestrating his own homophobic and racist attack against himself on January 29 in Chicago. The news came Tuesday and Cook County State Attorney’s Office said the decision was made after reviewing the facts and the actor forfeiting his $10,000 bond.


Following the news, friends took to social media to express their support for Smollett. Check out posts from actress Gabourey Sidibe, director Ava DuVernay, QuestsLove, and actor Devon Sawa.
