Terrence ‘Lucious’ Howard stands up for TV son Jussie ‘Jamal’ Smollett

Lucious Lyon hits back at a fan who called him out for supporting his son, Jamal (Jussie Smollett).

Actor Terrence Howard popularly known as Lucious Lyon is supporting his television son, Jussie Smollett after he was accused of staging his own hate crime attack last month in Chicago.

In a post on Instagram, Howard shared a video of a baby sitting on Smollett’s lap and breaking into fits of giggles when he tickles him.

In one of the comments under the video, a fan criticized him for supporting Smollett, and Howard fired back with a lengthy message defending his decision and telling the fan it wasn’t his/her job to judge.

“Sorry you feel that way but that’s the only Jussie I know,” he posted. “The Jussie I know could never even conceive of something so unconscious and ugly. His innocence or judgment is not for any of us to decide. Stay in your lane and my lane is empathy and love and compassion for someone I’ve called my son for five years. It’s God’s job to judge and it’s ours to love and hope, especially for those that we claim to have loved.”

In an article published by BangShowbiz, Jussie appeared in court on Thursday (21.02.19), where he was ordered to pay a $10,000 bond and surrender his passport after being arrested on felony charges of filing a false police report and disorderly conduct.

According to CNN, authorities said Smollett was dissatisfied with his salary on the show and wanted publicity when he filed a police report saying two men attacked him and threw a noose around his neck on January 29 in Chicago.

He allegedly staged the attack by paying two brothers $3,500 to target him, police said according to the CNN report. The men bought masks and a noose, and the actor directed them on what to say when they attacked him. Before the alleged attack, Smollett made sure the neighborhood had security cameras to ensure the assault would be recorded.

The show’s main cast has not commented much since Smollett’s role in the attack changed from victim to suspect. Executive producers of “Empire” Lee Daniels and Danny Strong said last week that while they were waiting for the legal process to play out, they would remove Smollett’s character from the season’s final two episodes.

Smollett has maintained that he did not make up the story, and he has reiterated to the “Empire” cast and crew he was innocent of the charge against him.

Smollett plays Howard’s son, Jamal, on “Empire,” a Fox drama about a family dynasty set in the alluring world of hip-hop.
