Malik Yoba still doesn’t know who exactly green lighted the demise of his character. He Skyped into “TMZ Live” this afternoon and explained that he was in Ferguson, Mo. setting up a screening of “Empire” to raise money for the Urban League when Daniels, the show’s creator, called him to deliver the bad news.

“He said someone at Fox decided that someone needed to die in the season finale,” Yoba revealed. Asked by TMZ’s Harvey Levin if it was Fox who picked him specifically or Daniels, Yoba said, “To this day, I don’t know…”

    • Yo….people who “knew him personally” may’ve known he was Gay but….”did “We the public”?, nnnnnnnNOPE! Dude didn’t announce it nor did “Ellen” have him on until “AFTER” Leek’s “leak”. And so “I”?…..beg to differ.

  1. I saw Malik on another news show and he looked pretty sad about it, almost a bit shocked. Sorry to see him go. One the malkin reasons that I like this show is that situatulions get resolved quickly.
