Let’s get to the truth of reported attack
I never heard of Jussie Smollett or even the Fox TV show “Empire” until the alleged hate crime was reported to the police and the media by the actor himself.
By now most everyone knows what was reported, Smollett told authorities he was attacked early Jan. 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.”
There are now reports that Smollett may have paid two men to orchestrate an assault on him that he reported late last month. Those two men were Nigerian brothers, one of whom he knew and appeared on his TV show, Empire. The brothers are reporting they were paid $3,500 to stage the attack.
I knew as soon as I read this story the first time it was a hoax. The liberal media wanted so badly to believe it was true so they could further divide and push their agenda.
Donald Trump once said, “There’s no such thing as bad publicity!” It’s somewhat ironic that Jussie is following in the footsteps of his nemesis and adversary and seeming to be using him more as a mentor.
So much for Michelle Obama’s statement of “When they go low, we go high.”
This is how a failing actor who is written off a TV show gains international attention.
