Rapper Ice-t has hinted that there could be an episode of Law & Order: SVU coming based on Empire actor Jussie Smollett's now-infamous hate crime hoax:
"I mean, I don't know what I can say," he told US magazine. "I can give you some hints." He then said that some "Empire-ish drama" would be coming viewers way.
Smollett was ditched from the show after he claimed that he was the target of a hate crime back in January. According to Smollett, he was attacked by two white men yelling "MAGA country!" He claimed that bleach was poured over him and that they tied a noose around his neck while he was out in the early hours of the morning, buying a sandwich at Subway.
"By mutual agreement, the studio has negotiated an extension to Jussie Smollett's option for season six, but at this time there are no plans for the character of Jamal to return to Empire," Fox Entertainment and 20th Century Fox Television said in a statement.
All charges were dropped against him but could be refiled after a special prosecutor was called in to review the dismissal and the evidence.
