Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., thinks Illinois state prosecutors' move to drop charges against actor Jussie Smollet over filing a false police report was the right move.

"It’s the correct thing that the charges were dropped," Waters told Extra TV at the 50th Annual NAACP Image Awards on Sunday. "First of all, we probably will never know all of the details. We’ve heard a lot of information.

Waters was honored with the Chairman's Award, an award for which Smollett, who is an actor on “Empire,” was also nominated.

Smollett, who is black and gay, alleged in late January that he was the victim of a hate crime where two men attack him while yelling racist and homophobic slurs. Chicago police later said that there was substantial evidence to show that Smollett had staged the attack and filed a false police report.

Last month, the Cook County state’s attorney's dropped all 16 felony charges against Smollett, in exchange for community service on his part.

Waters says that she “learned this isn’t unusual.”

The Illinois Prosecutors Bar Association condemned prosecutor's handling of the case. Specifically, the "manner in which this case was dismissed was abnormal and unfamiliar to those who practice law in criminal courthouses across the state.”

Waters previously said that she would be “disappointed” if it turned out Smollett had staged the attack.
