Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., has expressed confusion of the arrest of "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett who was indicted by police for staging a racist, homophobic attack on himself.

Maxine yesterday says she will be "disappointed" if Smollett if did carry out the hoax attack.

Waters was quick to rise to the defense of her "friend" Smollett after he filed a police report.

On Thursday the Democrat admitted she is now "waiting for the final results" to pass final judgment on Smollett.

“I don’t think we can, at this point, make sense of it,” Waters told Variety.

“There's still some questions that we have, some answers that have to be given. He’s a friend. He was at my office. We marched in the Pride Parade together, he introduced me at 'Black Girls Rock,' and so, I believed him, when I heard about it.”

But Waters added she still doesn't know the full details from the incident yet.

"I’m waiting for the final results of all of this," Waters said.

"If in fact, it’s a hoax, of course, I would be disappointed, but I’m just hopeful that whatever goes on, and if he finds that he’s in trouble, that his life will be changed, then he has to re-do it all over again."

But on the same day Smollett filed the report Waters took to Twitter:

"Jussie is my friend - a very talented & beautiful human being. It is so hurtful that homophobic haters would dare hurt someone so loving and giving. I'm dedicated to finding the culprits and bringing them to justice. Jussie did not deserve to be harmed by anyone!"

Nancy Pelosi deleted her tweet which called Empire actor Jussie Smollett the victim of a 'racist and homophobic hate crime' after reports since emerged that he staged the hoax.

Chigaco Police indicted Smollett yesterday on felony charges for faking his own "racist and homophobic attack," after two brothers gave statements confessing they were paid to stage the incident.

“Detectives will make contact with his legal team to negotiate a reasonable surrender for his arrest,” police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said in a statement.

Smollett was released from police custody on Thursday on $100,000 bond as he awaits trial, reports say.

Smollett's legal team accused the Chicago police of organizing a "spectacle" and suggesting that politics, suggesting it was politically related.
