“Empire” has become a bona-fide hit for FOX, and it’s making stars out of the cast. But oftentimes with new fame, comes a little bit of controversy.
Bryshere “Yazz” Gray portrays Hakeem Lyon on the hit show, but he’s getting called out something serious by a promoter.
The Jasmine Brand writes:
A promoter/magazine owner is blasting Empire’s Bryshere Gray (aka Yazz), after describing what he says was an awful experience with the actor. A man by the name of Gary Chambers (who describes himself as publisher & Co-Owner of The Rouge Collection, Film Producer, & Radio Host) is making serious claims against Yazz, sharing a personal story about a recent professional experience that he had with him.
Posting a series of Instagram clips and a YouTube video, Gary claims that he booked Yazz to come to Baton Rouge. From our understanding, he was to make an appearance, do a round of interviews, sign fans autographs, etc. But according to Gary, he says that Yazz was in full diva mode (my words, not his) with unreasonable demands, disrespectful behavior and down-right lacking home training.
What’s more? Gary claims that while transporting Yazz to a venue, he actually urinated in a bottle, as opposed to asking to be taken to a rest room.
Would you allow that to be a matter you kept private in order to maintain an image with people who aren’t in anyway financially supporting you anyway? Would you allow the opinions of people to sway what you know is right? Would you allow your convictions to be muted because the person you were up against was bigger than you? Would you allow someone to tell you that “R.Kelly molested little girls and he’s still famous, you can’t affect us” and be silent about it? • I think people think about looks before convictions. I think about my convictions before I think of how it looks. • @Yazzthegreatest needs to be humbled, because 3 months ago no one knew his name, and now he thinks he can do whatever and get away with it! • #TheCCode #Truth
