The emoji & # 39; s of the hand wave, the heart and the prayer position probably mean that Smollett felt happy and grateful, despite the fact that they were written in the sixth season of Empire.
He was also cut off from the last episodes of season five, in the aftermath of the media fire storm around him after he was accused of organizing the racist and homophobic attack in January 2019.
Not long afterwards he was accused orchestrated the incident itself to prompt publicity, and was eventually charged with 16 counts of disorderly conduct for allegedly filing a fake police report.
The fallout: Smollett was cut from the last episodes of season five of Empire after he was accused of organizing the racist and homophobic attack in January 2019
More dropouts: Lucious Lyon from Smollett was written from the last season of Empire; his iconic homosexual character was the son of Terrence Howard
In March, Smollett's defense team reached a deal with prosecutors who dropped all charges in exchange for Smollett who performed the community's job and forfeited his $ 10,000 bond.
However, the FBI did succeed and revealed that agents would investigate why the charges were withdrawn and whether there was corruption.
Smollett maintained his innocence throughout the ordeal, yet the makers and producers of Empire decided to drop him and his iconic gay character Lucious Lyon from the show.
Together with Empire, the California resident is also known for his role in the action horror film Alien: Covenant 2017, the second installment in the Alien prequel series.
End of the row: Empire & # 39; s sixth and final season premiered on Fox September 24; Smollett and his former cast members are shown in a season five promotion in 2017
