Often, “Empire” always played up the tension between Lucious (Terrence Howard) and Jamal (Jussie Smollett). But, throughout the whole series, Andre (Trai Byers) felt Lucious hated him most. This didn’t synch up with most viewers until this season.
Throughout “Empire” season two, Andre has sought Lucious’ approval and forgiveness. When Lucious learned Andre’s wife, Rhonda (Kaitlin Doubleday) was expecting, he temporarily won. But, during the family viewing for the “Boom Boom Boom Boom” video, tension took over.
Watching the video, Andre turned the TV off and confronted Lucious about his grandmother (Kelly Rowland) being bipolar. As things got tense, Lucious called his mother a nutjob that he was ashamed of, same as Andre, among other things, leading to a massive blowout. Andre disowned Lucious, as he did to him, and it set Twitter off.
