( 4UMF NEWS ) ‘Empire’ Cast Endorses Hillary Clinton:
The Lyons are with her.
The cast of “Empire” backed Hillary Clinton for President, citing her support of Black Lives Matter, Obamacare and women’s rights.
The commercial starts with Taraji P. Henson asking “What will I tell my son? What will you tell your daughter? What will we tell the future generation?”
Bryshere Gray follows by listing the names of black Americans who have been killed recently: Trayvon Martin, Sandra Bland, Freddie Gray and Philando Castile.
Other cast members, including Trai Byers, Jussie Smollett, Tasha Smith, Gabourey Sidibe and Grace Byers, lauded the Democratic presidential nominee for her standing up against intolerance and closing loopholes on gun purchases.
“The violence and nasty rhetoric against mankind is unacceptable,” Byers said.
“Empire” creator Lee Daniels urged everyone to vote on Election Day.
“So many women and men died for us to have the right to vote,” he said. “Every time we sit out, we dishonor their sacrifices.”
