Lee Daniels spoke out about the arrest of Jussie Smollet for the first time. 

He says life on set has been a complete rollercoaster. He posted a video on Instagram saying ever since "the incident" he and his cast have "experienced pain and anger and sadness and frustration and really don't know how to deal with it."

As of now, Smollett faces 16 felony counts of disorderly conduct for allegedly filing a false police report.
