Another day, another legal dispute for “Empire” creator Lee Daniels but fortunately for him… the battle against Hollywood A-Lister Sean Penn is over and done!
If you recall, Penn filed a $10 Million defamation lawsuit against the filmaker after Daniels used his name when defending Empire star Terrence Howard against media reports of domestic violence. The statements were made in an interview conducted prior to the season 2 premiere of the show, where Daniels said:
“[Terrence] ain’t done nothing different than Marlon Brando or Sean Penn, and all of a sudden he’s some f—in’ demon,”
That’s a sign of the time, of race, of where we are right now in America.”
