Lee Daniels says he’s been in his “feelings” over the Jussie Smollett scandal, and things have been hard to deal with.

The Philadelphia-born film and television producer jumped on Instagram Wednesday night (before the mid-season premieres of Star and Empire) to express the “pain and anger” he and his cast have experienced since the Chicago Police Department hit Smollett with 16 felony charges.
