    Jussie Smollett

    I never heard of this guy until last week. He is burning up the internet. It appears he staged an attack on himself and tried to blame it on some MAGA/Trump supporters. If true he is an idiot.

    Yeah.
    I thought it sounded a little sketchy when news of the attack broke but I figured, "Who the hell would make up something like that?"

    Then I started hearing that he might have staged it for sympathy or to make headlines because he was being written off the show he's on.

    Still, I doubted it because who the hell would make up something like that?
    Plus, we all know that the Trump Collective has nothing but respect and empathy for all humans everywhere, especially gay, Black American actors.
    Assigning credibility to his claim would require us to accept the notion that not one - but TWO - Trump bots harbored ill will toward another human being; and that's just a bit of a stretch, I'd say.

    More than just an idiot, he must have mental health issues. I think he is lying. I saw his photo after the alleged attack, one small cut and it looked like he had cotton batten in his mouth to make his face look swollen. That was a red flag right there. A friend of mine got gay bashed years ago and he was beaten senseless. They are trying to make it look like he is being framed by racist cops now, or at least that's the spin they are trying to work. I don't think so, he staged this for whatever reason and should be charged as anyone else would be.

    Sadly, very true.

    I agree. People who commit hate crimes usually bash their victims sometimes to the point of death.

    He was a You Tube wanna be. He was just playing the Social Media Trigger frenzy effect. I thought it was BS from the get go, but I am trying to learn to wait a week or so on crap like this. Let's the dust settle.

    What's worse is if it genuinely happens in the near future to someone, I guarantee there will be an outcry of people saying they made it up just like he did.

    Oh absolutely. If he did this because he is anti Trump just saying so would have sufficed. Obviously he wanted to make a bigger statement for all to see and hear about. Starting a potential shit storm to suit your agenda is not only dangerous but could prove deadly to others caught in a real situation.

    It must be a very satisfying feeling.
    He wanted lots of attention - his plan seems to be working toward that end.

    What angers me is that he is of mixed heritage, his father was white and his mother is black. What he has done helps no one. What a pathetic excuse for a human being.

    I don't condone or encourage violence of course; but doing what he did might be enough to make some people want to jump him on a dark street and slap him around a bit and call him derogatory names and such.

    If that were to happen, then his original claims would become largely true; and he wouldn't even have to report the incident what with it having already been reported before it happened.

    I think we can all agree that most white men wearing Maga hats are
    racist scum.
    So one can see this hate crime happen.

    While I don't agree with the hat making them racist, they don't do themselves a favor by blatantly wearing it in a place that they know it might offend someone. It's just asking for trouble.

    Empire is getting canceled. I hope Jessie doesn't beat himself up over it.

    I was hoping they would have fired him before they cancelled the show. Hopefully no one will hire him for anything else.

    What a performance this clown put on in court! The judge really nailed him to the wall.

    His Empire co-star Taraji P. Henson is actually comparing his circumstances to Emmett Till. She is getting called out by many and rightly so. This had nothing to do with what happened to Emmett. For a start Emmett was a child and didn't do what he was accused of unlike Jussie. Whether you think he should be in prison or not for what he did, Tajari trying to compare the two incidents is complete BS.

    This is so far from the truth I don't even know where to begin.

    What a stupid remark for her to make. Emmett was an innocent, unlike Mr. Smollett. His arrogance and self entitlement is astounding.

    I think he was just an attention whore who assumed that if society would have sympathy for him for becoming a hate crime victim, the producer may have enough sympathy to NOT write him off of the show. Unfortunately for him, his partners in crime backed down and snitched on him and his plan. Bummer for him. I'm sure he's met a few close friends in jail though.
