Hollywood Reacts To Jussie Smollett Case Being Dropped by admin: 01:37 am On 3 Mar

Friends and colleagues of Jussie Smollett are weighing in on the news that all the charges against the actor -- who was accused of staging a hate crime against himself -- have been dropped.
The announcement from prosecutors in Chicago came Tuesday.
Smollett had pleaded not guilty to 16 felony disorderly conduct charges. The Cook County State's Attorney's Office said the reversal came after reviewing the facts in the case and that the actor agreed to forfeit his $10,000 bond.

Taraji P. Henson, who stars with Smollett on the Fox drama "Empire," told USA Today that she believed in his innocence from the beginning, "because I know him and I know his track record."
"I'm happy that the truth has finally been set free, because I knew it all along," Henson said. "We're all happy for him, and thank God the truth prevailed."
"Empire" actress Gabourey Sidibe posted a picture of Smollett on Instagram and wrote, "It's weird that y'all decided that the police were being 100% honest about this case."

Director Ava DuVernay resurfaced a previous tweet from last month in which she wrote about the complicated history of the Chicago Police Department and the African-American community.

"Despite the inconsistencies, I can't blindly believe Chicago PD. The department that covered up shooting Laquan McDonald over a dozen times? That operated an off-site torture facility? That one? I'll wait. Whatever the outcome, this won't stop me from believing others," DuVernay wrote. "It can't."
