Jussie Smollett has had a very busy day.

He started the morning out by being arrested by Chicago police for his now infamous fake hate crime.

Then after posting $100,000 bond, Smollett was released and fled the scene quickly without taking any questions.

Now because he’s a rich, leftist celebrity, this evening word is that Smollett is already back on the set of his hit show “Empire.”

Because apparently liberals don’t have to pay for their crimes?

From The Daily Caller:

Jussie Smollett was spotted back on the set of “Empire” on Thursday shortly after he appeared in court for his bail hearing, where it was set at $100,000 for allegedly staging his attack.

The 36-year-old actor posted the bail and soon after was spotted on the set of his Fox show in Chicago, per the Hollywood Reporter. It comes after the “Empire” star turned himself into authorities earlier in the day on one felony count of disorderly conduct for allegedly filing a false police report.

Sources told the outlet that the actor had added security with him for the shooting of “penultimate episode” of season five. Insiders shared that as the case has continued to unfold from an alleged hate crime to an alleged staged attack, the writers have several different options they are looking at to close out the series.

One of those options reportedly includes “keeping Smollett’s character, fan-favorite Jamal Lyon, in the script or writing the embattled actor out of the episode.” …

As it turns out, this might be the last time Smollett appears on set after all.

“We understand the seriousness of this matter and we respect the legal process,” Fox tweeted. “We are evaluating the situation and we are considering our options.”

There’s more, from The Daily Wire:

The walls are quickly closing in on actor Jussie Smollett, who now faces the possibility of either being suspended or written off the show, “Empire,” after being charged with a felony by Chicago P.D. for allegedly staging his own “hate crime.”

According to an exclusive at Variety, Fox is now openly considering removing the actor from “Empire.”

“Sources close to the production told Variety that producers are weighing whether to suspend the actor after he was charged Wednesday in Chicago with filing a false police report,” reports the outlet. “A spokesperson for 20th Century Fox Television, which produces the series, declined to comment. Smollett’s status on the show may change amid a fluid legal situation.” …

Maybe there is a little bit of justice in the television world after all.

Here’s how Twitter reacted to the news:
