Though Cook County, Ill., prosecutors dropped disorderly control charges opposite Jussie Smollett, that didn’t stop “Saturday Night Live” from poking fun during a “Empire” actor in this weekend’s show.
Chris Redd reprised his purpose as Smollett, who in a blueprint is dual hours late for a assembly with his manager, played by “SNL” guest horde Sandra Oh.
Ego Nwodim, Kate McKinnon and Mikey Day play Fox executives and Kenan Thompson plays “Empire” co-creator and executive writer Lee Daniels.

The blueprint starts with a executives seething about Smollett’s tardiness and Oh jumping to his defense.
“Jussie Smollett was a victim,” Oh tells to a indeterminate executives.
Redd as Smollett afterwards bursts in a bureau sporting a “Make America Great Again” top and a hash on his face, claiming he’s only been pounded again.
“I’m so contemptible I’m late. You are not gonna trust what only happened to me. we got attacked, again!,” he said.
As evidence, he digs in a bag full of “clues,” that include a box of Crest Whitestrips, 3 red “K” letters that spell out KKK, profits – to that he mumbles “I need that” – automobile keys and a “gay” purple Teletubby.
Asked because he was carrying a bag, Smollett says: “I don’t know. we consider it’s a bag of clues? Look guys, a torpedo left me a bag of clues!”
“What killer? You’re still alive!” one writer asked.

The Fox executives offer to call a police, to that Smollett responds: “They pronounced we can never call again.”
They afterwards promptly fire him.
“Jussie, we know we’ve got to glow you, right?,” Thompson’s Daniels says.
“I done this show. we am a happy Lee Daniels!,” Redd’s Smollett responds as a blueprint ends.
Smollett was created out of a final dual episodes of “Empire’s” stream season. The Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office forsaken charges opposite Smollett for allegedly filing a fake military news claiming he was pounded in a aroused hatred crime.
