The “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett was seen leaving Chicago as the backlash continues to intensify over prosecutors’ decision to drop the 16 felonies Smollett faced. Prosecutors cleared Smollett of all charges earlier this week despite acknowledging that the actor fabricated the racial street attack on himself in an attempt to get a pay raise. Officials also said they dropped the charges in order to focus resources on violent crime.

President Donald Trump has since then weighed in on the decision to drop all charges against the “Empire” actor, as he announced in a tweet on Thursday that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Department of Justice would both “review” the case.
