Taye Diggs feels that it would be "smart" to bring actor Jussie Smollett back to 'Empire' during its sixth and final season.
"I have no idea what people are going through. And to be honest, it's kinda none of my business," Diggs said to 'Black Hollywood Live.'
"He [Smollett] is a good friend of mine. I love him. He's, he's only done right by me. So you know people go through things. It doesn't change who he was and who he is to me. It doesn't change, you know, the attention that we still need to pay to, you know, homophobic. Like, the people, people trip out, just because; whatever happened doesn't mean that, that the issue that he stands for don't still exist."
He continued: "If I am being honest, the smart thing would be to bring him back and, and let it interweave it into the, into the show, you know?" Diggs said. "I feel like, people, I may get in trouble for saying this, but they're so quick to just, uh, to leave, to leave these people. You know what I mean? So quick to, to fire them, so quick to kind of, you know, throw them away as opposed to, you know, taking their time and, maybe letting it, let it, let it work toward, you know, the program or the job, or, you'd probably get to the bottom of it if he, if he stuck around."
Diggs previously starred in 'Empire' for a brief stint between 2016-2017.
Smollett could be re-charged over the alleged hate crime hoax as the case has been referred to a special prosecutor.
