LOS ANGELES (AP) — “Empire” co-star Jussie Smollett recently caused a social media storm after tweeting a cryptic message that implied he may be leaving the show.

“I was thinking like my little core group of amazing fans would be like, ‘What?’ But it just went so much further. Like there were calls about it and Lee (Daniels) was getting death threats about it,” Smollett said in an interview Friday at an event celebrating the second season finale of “Empire.”

“It was hilarious to watch. Hilarious!” he exclaimed.

Smollett says fans can chill out — he’s going nowhere.

“I’ll be back season three and hopefully season four if I don’t piss everybody off,” he said.

Cast members, including Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard, attended the event in Los Angeles. Howard alluded to his character, Lucious Lyon, getting back with Cookie, played by Henson.

“I hope it’s in the cards in the future because when we work together and when we’re able to play with each other, there something that’s satiated in my spirit,” he said.
