Jussie Smollett’s “Empire” Role Slashed

Because of all the scandal with Jussie’s alleged attack, Empire has decided to slash Jussie’s screen time on the upcoming season of Empire.
According to sources, Jussie was supposed to have 9 scenes and a big musical number in the second to the last episode, but now 5 scenes have been cut including the musical number.
Because of the screen slashing, Jussie won’t be hanging around the set that much, and writers are presently working feverishly to revise the script.
Do you think Jussie will be written off the show at some point?
Do you think that the people at Empire are doing a bad thing by slashing scenes that involve Jussie?
