Lee Daniel’s “Empire” Still too Gay for some African Americans

The  Academy Award nominated director producer has long pushed the envelope in his films, from Monsters Ball and Precious to the Paperboy. Mr Daniel convinced Oprah Winfrey to playing a wife who cheated on her devoted husband in The Butler.

In an resent interview with Bevy Smith “Bevelations” on Sirius Xm, Daniels said his harshest criticism comes from the African American community.

People were outraged when Halle Berry’s character had sex with a white man in Monsters Ball.

On Empire, Jussie Smollett’s character (Jamal Lyon) has always been gay,his initial  love interest was (Michael Sanchez) Rafeal De La Fuente.

A few weeks ago, fans were introduced to (D-major) Tobias Truvillion . On the show,he plays an artistic director of an awards show.  His character is also on the DL, D-major) always seen with beautiful women.  In one scene he grabs a surprised Jamel and kisses him, a love scene follows.

 The Kiss blew up Black Twitter, it also generated criticism. There are some who believe the show has a gay agenda.

Empire is Fox’s highest rated show.


 Get ready for the envelope to be pushed again.

Moved to the Big Tomata in the nineties from San Francisco. No Suburbs for me with its single colored houses and lawns and the excitement of pulling out my trash can once a week. I'm a CityFella , a part time New Yorker. I'm happiest in the Center City where people the streets and people are alive. I'm still waiting to buy a 34th floor condo somewhere downtown/Midtown with a nightclub. "Hurry I'm old" My politics are somewhere in the middle with a needle that constantly moves. I'm too liberal to be a Republican and too conservative to be a Democrat. Everything interests me . I've come to love Sacratomato, Its a nice town in cheap sensible shoes .
