They say they didn't do it. I wonder if they left their logins open. I think we've all done that a time or two. 

Is the fellow famous? I assume Empire is a popular show?

He's now infamous.  Apparently it is a popular show.  Unfortunately, he staged a hate crime hoax that multiple media outlets ran with, without due diligence.  Significant police resources were used to find the perps, who promptly confessed to being paid by the "victim" to stage the hate crime.

The gentleman is now facing multiple charges, has been dropped from the TV show and the rush-to-judge media are now lamely trying to cover their tracks.
