Jussie Smollett Returns To Social Media With Pride Month Message

There was precious little actual Smollett content in the Instagram post. Specifically, Smollett posted a video of his speech at Sunday's Tony Awards. Instead, he ceded the floor to Tarell Alvin McCraney, the Oscar-winning playwright and screenwriter of Choir Boy, Steven Soderbergh's High Flying Bird, and the play that inspired the film Moonlight, for which he also co-wrote the screenplay. As you would likely expect, the comments have been disabled to prevent bullying or harsh remarks from fans.

Smollett's previous post was on January 28, a day before he told Chicago police he was attacked by two masked men who yelled racist and homophobic slurs. Police insist the actor, who is black and gay, staged the attack because he was unhappy with his salary and wanted publicity.

Smollett has maintained his innocence and did not pay the city by the deadline he was given.

Apple can reportedly make enough iPhones outside China
But Apple's iPhones and iPads are arguably the most important products manufactured by Foxconn in, you guessed it, China. But he said the company is capable of moving production lines elsewhere according to customers' needs.

"So much #PRIDE", Smollett captioned the video.

Smollett's character was written out of the final episodes of the most recent season of "Empire" as the case against him developed.

Last week, creator Lee Daniels said in a Tweet, "Jussie will NOT be returning to Empire".
