Jussie Smollett just got some devastating news and boy does he deserve it. Jussie Smollett has just been indicted by a Chicago special prosecutor.
Smollett shot to infamy over a hoax racial attack he tried to blame on Trump supporters. The media ate it up.
Don Lemon and the rest got on their high horses and talked down to Trump and his supporters until the truth came out – it was all a hoax.Loading…
A publicity stunt to dupe the media and others to help his career.
He was charged and got a Chicago miracle, the kind only a few can buy, and thought he was home free.
But the cops revolted and demanded a special prosecutor and now Smollett can spend a few years in the slammer thinking about what he did.
Former “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett was indicted Tuesday in Chicago by special prosecutor Dan Webb, stemming from the alleged racist and anti-gay attack on him that occurred in January of 2019, a source confirms to FOX 32 News.
He is due in court February 24.
Smollett told Chicago police last year that two men physically attacked him and yelled racial and homophobic slurs. But prosecutors insist Smollett faked the racist, anti-gay attack on himself in the hopes that the attention would advance his acting career.
But with little explanation, authorities in March of 2019 abruptly dropped all charges against Smollett, abandoning the criminal case only five weeks after the allegations were filed. In return, prosecutors said, the actor agreed to let the city keep his $10,000 in bail.
The dismissal drew a swift backlash from the mayor and police chief and raised questions about why Smollett was not forced to admit what prosecutors had said they could prove in court – that the entire episode was a publicity stunt.
