A few hours ago, Jussie Smollett posted $100,000 bail and Variety.com reported that the actor headed back to the set of “Empire”. It is unclear what will happen to his character on the show.

Earlier this afternoon, President Trump took to Twitter to weigh in on the controversy.

Even Presidential hopeful Kamala Harris released a statement about how she is sad and frustrated over the Jussie Smollett situation. Harris originally showed support for the actor before police concluded that the entire crime was just a hoax perpetrated by Smollett.

Smollett’s story began to be questioned shortly after news spread across worldwide media outlets. He then appeared on ABC’s Good Morning America in this now infamous interview.
