Jussie Smollett’s career is on thin ice following his indictment on felony charges for allegedly staging the attack on himself. TMZ reports that the Empire star’s job offers have vanished since he was arrested on the charges, and is now being treated like a pariah in Hollywood.

The site notes that Smollett received a ton of calls immediately after the attack for potential roles in films, on TV, in commercials and for interviews. However, after it began to come out that he allegedly staged the attack, those job offers have gone away and he’s gotten no calls for new work.

Smollett was indicted late last week on sixteen felony counts of filing a false police report. The actor has maintained his innocence. Empire removed the actor from the final two episodes of the season in order to avoid disruption on the film’s set.
