This is absolute bullshit. 16 felony counts!?! That’s FUCKING over kill. He made a false police report. The people he lied on were part of the ORIGINAL plot and were paid. From my understanding, at least one of the men played on Empire. So he knew his attackers. Was this a lie? What is going on in this story?
I’M not saying he’s innocent, but 16 counts is just ridiculous. This dude is being crucified because he’s black AND GAY.
Nobody was hurt during this entire ordeal. Nobody was falsely accused, nobody spent countless years behind bars for a crime they didn’t commit. This is just a witch hunt. They are excessively punishing him because of the MAGA attacks. Because he implied that it was white Trump supporters who did it, he should hang. That’s their thinking.
What made them decide he wasn’t a victim after all, I don’t know. Also I’m over here thinking that he’s black only to find out a second ago that he might not identify as black because of a comment they say he made. If he were Mexican, Muslim, or Black he would have gotten a better response.
I’m at a loss because this story is bizarre as hell. Come on!! It makes no sense.
[Smollett told authorities he was attacked early January 29 by two men who were “yelling out racial and homophobic slurs.” He said one attacker put a rope around his neck and poured an unknown chemical substance on him.
The sources told CNN there are records that show the two brothers purchased the rope found around Smollett’s neck at a hardware store in Chicago.
Smollett’s attorneys, Todd S. Pugh and Victor P. Henderson, issued a statement to CNN Saturday night saying Smollett was angry about these latest developments.
“As a victim of a hate crime who has cooperated with the police investigation, Jussie Smollett is angered and devastated by recent reports that the perpetrators are individuals he is familiar with,” the statement read. “He has now been further victimized by claims attributed to these alleged perpetrators that Jussie played a role in his own attack. Nothing is further from the truth and anyone claiming otherwise is lying.”
Smollett’s attorneys said they expect further updates from Chicago police on the investigation and will continue cooperating with authorities.
“At the present time, Jussie and his attorneys have no inclination to respond to ‘unnamed’ sources inside of the investigation, but will continue discussions through official channels,” the statement read.
Smollett identifies as gay and since 2015 has played the gay character of Jamal on the Fox TV drama “Empire.”]
Are YOU as confused as I am?
updated a week after writing this blog…
… ok guys I went back and instead of just accepting his statement, I pulled out my radar. My lie detector test that I use to determine whether somebody might be lying.
I watched the video interview that Jussie gave with Robin Roberts. And folks I’m here to tell you DECEPTION WAS DETECTED!!! 😢😢😌😌😑I’M PISSED!! I’M upset because he got me. I looked at the initial story and said that’s fucked up. How could someone do that. People get jumped all the time, so that’s nothing new. My issue was JUSSIE seems like such a nice guy. Why would anybody want to hurt HIM? There are people who I feel need their asses kicked. But this guy from Empire? Nah, not him.
Well guys he’s lying. I didn’t want to believe it. But he is. The interview he gave is so deceptive. It’s really a shame. Why did he lie? No idea, but he did.
