The cast of FOX’s Empire appears in a new ad for Hillary Clinton, directed by creator Lee Daniels, which appeared during last night’s episode.
Says the cast in the ad:
“What will I tell my son? What will you tell your daughter? Trayvon Martin, Sandra Bland, Freddie Gray, Philando Castile. The violent and nasty rhetoric against mankind is unacceptable. If Trump gets into office, it will only get worse. Hillary has pledged to close the Charleston loophole on guns. I would like a president that will protect Obamacare. Somebody who understands personally the plight of a woman. I want a president who stands up against intolerance. there’s only one person in this race who said Black Lives Matter. So many women and men died for us to have the right to vote. Every time we sit out we dishonor their sacrifices.”
Gabourey Sidibe, Tasha Smith, Jussie Smollett, Trai Byers, Bryshere Gray, Grace Byers, Taraji P. Henson and Daniels star in the ad.
Notably absent is Terrence Howard.
