Prison for Smollett is like a long stay trip to the Bunny ranch for a straight guy....... Lil pump you are officially black now.
Derrick Ward (2 months ago)
Black people need to stop regardless how it happened jussie Smollett is the victim. If it really happened or if he was set up to ruin his career. He is a actor on a gangster TV series Empire if he was trying to Stage his own assault first he would have bought everything that was needed and gave it to the guys with the money because it is his idea also he wouldn't have made it look random he would have made it look like they knew who he was and he was being targeted. And if he was going to make it seem racial related he would have hired to white guys and plan it to happen somewhere it would have been caught on video. He is a well-known actor and single why would he released his cell phone so that all his personal informations get leak and be smeared all over social media. And if I am wrong he don't deserve jail time he needs counseling and support from his fans and black community. The real problem in this country is that we have a president and staff that lies everyday also tell the citizens of his country that the justice system is broken Top Justice officials are liars and he fires them. Continue to call the news media fake news in the enemy of the country and have his supporters threaten the lives of these people . Most of the police departments and officers in this country lie all the time about there murder and assaults on black people. Why can't the police departments around the country spend time finding out the truth when it comes to those cases. When an organization lie about one thing they lie about everything fix those problem. I thought in America you are innocent until proven guilty! But as a black person or Jessie Smollett you are guilty until they find a way to prove your guilty. Black people need to stop the system is broken and the people in the position of power lie to us every day. At the end of the day let's not forget black people this man is the victim until he is in court with a jury of his peers to prove that he is not. Jussie Smollett case has received more opinionated attention across social media then any of the murder, assault and lies on black people across the country. What I care about is if you commit a crime lie about a crime or Insight or promote a crime to be committed. A citizen police officer or politician be held accountable based on undeniable facts. We have so many black people in prison that are innocent young black men wrongfully murdered or subject to a smear campaign full of lies and opinions to ruin black people's careers the public opinion about that person and incarcerate. I understand black lives matter but we need to have a 'Why Us Campaign' to have a real conversation about us to fix us to empower us with us as a community to continue to be a proud race and to show others they can be proud of us as well. Rebuilding black self-esteem black pride and black power✊🏿

What about the brothers role? Why didn't they report Jussie approaching them with this idea first-hand????
O Pena (3 months ago)
This hoax if true is an expression of perhaps how he feels deep inside and this is bizarre behavior. He maybe suicidal.
O Pena (3 months ago)
He appears depressed and mentally ill. He needs therapy and counseling not jail time.

They need to put him on suicide watch. This is very bad and he didn’t anticipate the outcome because he thought he would get away with it . I feel bad in a not so bad way, if that makes sense.
Hillary c (3 months ago)
You guys believed him 100%(at least it appeared that way) while the rest of us was doubting for first two weeks. I am not necessarily a trump supporter but a Republican and very offended by your negligent reports that went on day after day.

Don't believe that story. The real reason is because his is a racist, not because of the money. Don't Fall For It again!
glock19gen (3 months ago)
Most of us knew this from the start. After watching his interview and his body language it would take a moron to have believed this story. He has hurt how true victims maybe treated when coming forward. So sad. Now the Berkeley issue looks as though it could be a true hate crime but we will have to get more facts .

A 1 yr old black girl gets shot in the head during a drive by from a black shooter. In Chicago during all this Jusse BS. They should talk about the real victims but the criminal doesn’t fit the media agenda. Remember the Houston drive by that killed a 7 yr old black girl? They thought the killer was white so it was national news. Once they figured out who it really was, the media moved on, because they don’t really care about black victims, they care about white criminals.
Gregory Robinson (3 months ago)
He needs to apologize to "Kevin Hart." I think Mr. Hart is a stand up guy and he tried to squash all that bickering & beef from the LGBT community by tweeting his condolences to Jussie Smollets, considering the false Anti-Gay & Anti Black attack . He definitely needs to apologized to the nation and The President. Jussie Smollets shouldn't have done what he did because it affected the entire nation & by getting on national t.v with the lady from Good Morning America. That did nothing but add fuel to the fire that he had created by cursing & crying crocodile tears & claiming that something needs to be done. That was heavy stuff-he probably didn't read about Emmitt Tille and all the Blacks who were lynched before & during the civil rights movement. He really created some damage & many people like myself probably believe that the DEMOCRATS are behind this disgusting act. It makes me favor Trump more -I'm voting for Trump in 2020 & I'm African American.

Look with this Jussie this what gonna happen ... He gonna go to jail for a short period or not even rehab ... He gonna come out everyone gonna want to interview him he gonna be all over the place just like how he is now ... He gonna do the apology the crying ...then he gonna be on some other show or shows or movies even and ...he gonna be even bigger or richer than before So that is why he did this It is sad It is pathetic But this is the world we living in sadly And believe me more people gonna be doing this . Just take a look at how many people doing it now even the fashion industry joining in ...

This will set a precedent for individuals making false claims but he should get some jail time at least a year to think about it. He still says he is innocent. What are the odds?

Smollett should strap a device onto his chest and walk into TMZ and get a one on one interview. Then in the middle of it he pushes a button and kapow! America is great again.
