While most people are are on quarantine day 10, former Empire actor Jussie Smollett is on day 421.
The 37-year-old all but disappeared in the year since Chicago police accused him of paying two brothers to stage a racist and homophobic hate crime against him on January 29, 2019. He deleted his Twitter, was fired from Empire, and his last Instagram post was from June 2019. Until today. The actor (and singer) revived his Instagram account to serenade us with a song about perseverance, ’cause, you know, the coronavirus.
“Quarantine Day 421,” he captioned it. “Hope y’all are staying safe. Spread love and kindness … not Rona.”
To be clear the song was Stevie Wonder’s “A Place In The Sun” which he coincidentally also recorded in Italian in 1966.
Smollett is just another in a long list of celebrities who are uplifting their fans amid this global pandemic. So what was the response? When we posted his video on our Instagram account and asked if you all missed him on Empire folks weren’t too kind.

The response was 180 degree different on his actual account. Many of his fans and celebrity friends showered him with love and heart emoji’s like Taraji P. Henson, Cynthia Erivo and Blair Underwood.
