[QUOTE] I didn't know this was still dragging on. How long has it been, nearly three years?

[QUOTE] The embattled actor, who is black and gay, is accused of lying to police when he reported he was the victim of a racist, homophobic attack in downtown Chicago in 2019.

[QUOTE]He was charged with filing a false police report when investigators discovered he allegedly paid two brothers to stage a hate crime against him because he was unhappy with his salary.

[QUOTE]Those charges were controversially dropped by Cook County State Attorney Kim Foxx’s office. A judge then assigned a special prosecutor to the case, who charged Smollett with six new counts of disorderly conduct in Feb. 2020.

Not even close. Tawana was out with her boyfriend and was going to get in a shitload of trouble so she concocted a tale of abduction and abuse by white police.

Jussie just made the story up out of the blue for some victim mojo, because in our age of social justice posturing, only oppressed victims get attention.

R21 we are past that. They initially let him get away with it. They just billed him for police overtime. (Well, not all of it no doubt.) He pushed back on even that. So they went after him with both barrels. As he deserves.

He really made his bed and now has to lay in it. He could have just taken a plea deal originally but instead chose to countersue and drag this out. Chicago won't let this slide because of the cost and embarrassment it caused. Jussie killed his career with this stunt, who will hire him now after this? And it's not like he was some great acting or singing talent. He was just a pretty boy who had a lot of respect and love for being openly gay and Black, now that respect is tossed out the door.

1. Let me do a quick thread about this Jussie Smollett hoax. Because we need to ask questions about who else was involved in this hoax. I have always been critical of the deceptive tactics of the white LGBT community. Now as we know, Jussie has campaigned with Kamala Harris

2. Kamala Harris was one of the people who authored the Anti Lynching Bill. Remember, these people below are funded by certain groups with certain agendas that has nothing to do with helping ADOS. That’s why whenever we bring up a Black agenda, Kamala & Cory changes the subject

3. That anti Lynching Bill Kamala introduced snuck in some LGBT language at the last minute. The white LGBT community has always tried to attached themselves to the plight of Black Americans to give the false impression that they have had a comparative historic struggle

4. Even white people called out the deceptive tactic of attaching LGBT language onto a bill the addressed the historic attacks on Black citizens. People saw they were trying to use Black suffering to push unrelated agendas that would benefit white society

5. After the Jussie “attack”, all these liberal, Kamala Harris supporting media outlets kept going out of their way to use the term “homophobic AND racist attack”. The fact they so many of them were using the same exact term, suggests that this was commissioned from the top level

6. They used this Jussie hoax to pass this anti Lynching bill, and this is the first time in history the white LGBT community has an official document GIVING THEM FEDERAL PROTECTIONS AS AN OPPRESSED GROUP like Black Americans. This Lynching Bill was a victory for the LGBT crowd

Even if he was desperate for attention (as people are these days) there's much better and easier ways than this concocted hate crime involving non reliable third parties. Lol. And then the doubling down once it started to unravel. He couldn't figure out himself that "the jig is up" and pushed forward even though multiple government agencies were getting involved and realizing it was bullshit.

I don't feel sorry for him at all. He willfully ruined his career and had all sorts of folks wasting all sorts of resources.

There were so many stupid elements to the story that made it unbelievable. Also:

1) He claimed he was outside after midnight in the dead of the Chicago winter when it was sixteen below outside--because for some reason he was desperate to get a sandwich from Subway. Who needs to get a sandwich that late at night in such cold weather?

2) He got a threatening letter in LA a few weeks before the attack, and yet even so the attackers in Chicago seemed to approach him only because they recognized him from "Empire" (as if they just happened on him by chance). Who sent the threatening letter if the attackers in Chicago did not?

3) If they really poured bleach on him, why they were careful not to harm him with it? He had no damage to his skin or to his eyes.

4) After supposedly pouring bleach on him, the attackers supposedly hung a noose round his neck made of string instead of rope, which he refused to remove until he walked into the police station claiming he had been attacked. Why would they sue string instead of rope? Where did they get the string to fashion the noose? Nooses are extremely potent symbols in the African American community because of the national history of lynching, but they are not among white racists unless they are trying to actually hang someone or something from them.

And, that they poured bleach on him. And that two MAGAs recognized him from Empire. And that they conveniently had rope on them. And that he had the rope on his neck during the police interview. And that he knew exactly where the CCTV cameras were.

No one with half a brain believed the story. From the get go people were calling it fake. However, the SJWs who believe that people NEVER lie about assault (unless the perp is trans, Black or Muslim in which case it is a lie) pushed back and called him a hero. And, Kamala and Booker got involved.

In hindsight I wonder how much of it was peoples desire for the Trump presidency racism spree narrative to be true that should be intelligent and rational people couldn’t see through it. The entire thing from start to finish made no sense.

It is fun to read the DL thread when the story first broke. Right away, some DLers were calling bullshit, but whenever they did, someone else accused them of being racist or blind to racial issues.

Around the 70s, more and more people support the idea that it is fake or at least we need to wait and see. At around the 100 mark it moves back to team Jussie. Luckily by the 200 mark is is back on the suspicious side and stays that way.

r101 Jussie did have a solo music career at the time, but the only people who followed it were obsessed fangurls.

Or he could just be a mental stunt queen who gets off on things like he did. I think a little of both.

Only the most CNN-following brain-laundered iFruiters, like r59, can't realize the coordinated (((effort))) that went down to coverup this embarrassing scam.

Leaked text (now conveniently deleted by Twitter) show an Obama aide contacted Kim Fox, the prosecutor against Jussie Smollett to get together to talk about Jussie. They then dropped the charges before he ever had to go to trial to prove his innocence because they know he would have gone to jail. Smollett was a friend of Michelle Obama.

Remember a grand jury already saw the evidence and decided to charge him. He's literally got off Scott free. Pure insanity. I'm sure Kim Fox was planted as the prosecutor for this exact reason.

To recap in more detail, not that it should even be necessary... a grand jury made up of his peers found there was evidence enough to indict him on 16 felony charges. Previously, The State Attorney General Kim Foxx had a text message conversation with Tina Tchen, Michelle Obama's Chief of Staff, and a relative of the Smollett to have the case moved to the FBI. She then recused herself and Joseph Magats (unfortunate last name!) took over the case and decided to drops all charges and the judge agreed to seal the case. The Mayor said that this was a whitewash of justice and that this is an instance of somebody being in a position of power and influence being treated differently and it is wrong. The Superintendent of Chicago Police said that justice was not served. Two Nigerian brothers who received a $3,500 check from Smollett were video taped buying the supplies for the alleged crime and with city video evidence and phone data the police were able to trace them back to the scene of the alleged crime and admitted Jussie Smollett asked them to fake a hate crime.

This whole thing blew up because it was one of the very, very few times that the dumbass everything-is-a-conspiracy -and-also-racism-doesn't -exist folks were right about something being a hoax.

I no longer remember what it was that made me believe it was a hoax, but it was something reported in the news, and I came here to the active thread at the time and mentioned it and no one cared. Everyone was too busy making up stories about Obama conspiracies and reverse racism and saying Smollett should be in jail for life, very few people actually cared about the facts of the hoax or how the whole thing unfolded.

Sociopaths like Jussie need justice just for wasting everyone's time, money, and attention, and sometimes empathy, all for BULLSHIT. Pure bullshit. It's more than exhausting. This case also shows that identity politics produces some intelligent people who have two faces. The private person who has bullshit detectors and the public face who says what he/she thinks is expected by peers and the zeitgeist. That is hypocrisy, and powerful liberals who supported Jussie would have liked this case to disappear because they were caught out - they are either two-faced, or complete idiots.

Calling the police and reporting a fake crime is the same thing as making a false report in terms of time and expense of government which is what authorities are claiming this case is about.

If you call the police and it is bullshit, they can cite you for that and make you pay the costs of fire, ambulance or any other costs your bullshit creates.

Do you think these White people are not filling out official police reports when they LIE and send police on wild goose chases to find the "scary Black man" who raped them or kidnapped their kids? Really? C'mon!

As others have noted, filing a false police report is a criminal act.

Jussie Smollett remains unrepentant and has doubled down on his lies. Given that he has cost taxpayers $$$$$, required untold hours of investigation over months for many individuals (police, politicians, physicians, etc.) and made a laughingstock out of those who rushed to his defense, he created quite an international event for the egocentric purpose of furthering his own career.

As Dave Chappell adroitly stated, many African Americans (and non-African Americans) were suspicious of his claims. He used the amount of melanin in his skin as a ploy to further himself: just as you, klan granny Troll, employ that excuse for his deficient actions. In using the cover of the amount of color in his skin as a defense for his (likely) criminal actions, you are racist, klan granny Troll.

Given that Smollett is not contrite nor forthcoming and he continues to require time, energy and $$$$$ from the public for his own self-serving purposes, throw the book at him.

P.S. I don't think it's been mentioned here, but one of the opportunities Jussie has already lost as a result of all this is the chance to star on Broadway in the revival of TAKE ME OUT. I realize some people here may not care about Broadway, but the role Jussie was up for is a star-making role that made a star out of Daniel Sunjata. Jussie lost the part two years ago, and Jesse Williams was cast. The show was supposed to open last spring but was delayed due to the pandemic, and it's now set to open in Spring 2022.

A fine, a court determination that he lied and a public apology for doing so.

As for reflecting and making amends... a lot of people have used the Covid lockdowns & restrictions as an opportunity to reflect on their lives and their futures, Jussie has had plenty of time to think about and take responsibility for his actions, it's been 2.5 years and he still hasn't grown as a person and he still refuses to see past himself. The only way he can make amends is to use his platform (if he still has one) to support real victims.

Some thoughts on this whole farce. Reviewing the case from the beginning, I would say there are some things about Jussie's original story that are maybe not so unbelievable as everyone thinks. As for him venturing out in -16 degree weather to get a sandwich, I believe he only went a short distance across the street, and I could see someone doing that if they had just flown in, they were really hungry, and there was no food in the house. As for the fact that this happened at 2am, he kept saying to Robin Roberts that Subway stores are open 24 hrs. So, are they or aren't they? (I don't know, I've never tried to go to one in the wee small hours.)

As far as the alleged perps recognizing Jussie from Empire, and being prepared with bleach and a rope, that's not so unbelievable considering that Jussie was coming from his own home, is it? Those guys COULD have known where he lived and could have been lying in wait, and that part wouldn't be so unbelievable IF indeed the threatening letter Jussie received a week earlier had been legit.

Of course, the thing is, it seems the threatening letter WASN'T legit, and the alleged perps were actually two brothers who had worked with Jussie on EMPIRE, and it seems he paid them to fake the attack. But what I REALLY don't understand is, now that the brothers have confessed the truth and we all know what happened, why did Jussie counter-sue the city of Chicago to not have to pay restitution for all the money that was spent on the investigation? Is it Jussie's contention that brothers are lying, and that Jussie WAS actually attacked by two other guys???

Really, if someone could explain all of this to me -- especially the last part -- I would greatly appreciate it.

r175 this says he countersued for "malicious" prosecution. I do remember that the assistant DA did put some of his business out there when it was found out that he was lying; IE he is a cocaine and ecstasy user. I have no idea if you can counter sue for something like that (not really a big shock that he uses drugs) but it seemed like overkill to reveal that to the public when it really wasn't related to the incident.

I remember hoping that they would be messy and leak bombshell information about closeted celebrity men who were fucking him at that time, but alas, they never did 😁 That disappointed me the most about this bullshit because I know he's a hoe too and those investigators where likely all straight men who don't know how to really spill tea

It's funny how you are so triggered when someone falsely accuses a White person of being racist but you have no problem with all the White people who actually ARE racist.

You had a blatantly racist POTUS (and his GOP KLAN) committing crimes against humanity every day he was in office and you fuckers didn't say shit! Now all of a sudden someone says a White person is racist and THIS is the hill you fuckers wanna die on? This is the most egregious thing it the world. Really?

R224 he needs jail time and a huge fine, at least six months. It was a national news story and further sowed division amongst minorities, and he made all Black people look bad at a time when people were trying to make their voices heard during some high profile police murders. Not to mention the damage to gay people in general, as that was the OTHER hate crime he was saying happened to him. So he damaged multiple minority communities.

His reasons seemed to be purely for attention and to promote his career, and for some reason he thought he could do that through turning himself into a victim. He might have succeeded, too, if his plan hasn't been so poorly realized.

On top of all that he damaged his family name - I wouldn't want a Smolett in any production I did. And the district attorney who decided to look the other way and yet is somehow still in her position. I hope she never gets elected to a more important office because of her obvious sleaze. She's responsible for her sleazy actions but Smolett put her in that position with his.

And him doubling down rather than just admitting it and moving on just stretches this whole thing out and makes it worse. People have come back from stupid shit like this - he could have, by doing some plays and smaller venues - but now his entire career is based around his alleged victimhood, first from the people he was "attacked" by and next from the police who have said he's lying and presented evidence as to why.

The DC connection outlined in R42 suggests that powerful people assured Smollett that he had their protection and would not suffer for his crime.

That would certainly explain why the DA refused to prosecute him, despite how bad it looked locally.

Of course, she has a habit of not prosecuting any criminal, but anyway: Smollett has no reason to back down, because he has been told he is judicially invulnerable.

I would further guess that he will soon grace the cover of Rolling Stone. After all, one of the Boston Marathon bombers did, and he actually killed people.

But I think the whole affair looks so shoddy that, whatever else happens, he will find it difficult to get any work after this. Many in show biz will want to hire him but fear a bad effect on business.

Beyond that, I honestly don't understand a word of what you're raving about. Are you actually saying that, because a lot of white people (and black people) are fairly certain that Smollett lied in making up a story about a racial attack against him by two white guys, that means we think there are no racist white people in America?????

Some people get abused for what they are. And along comes this asshole trying to surf on the wave of sympathy he collects for an imagined crime. A victimless crime? The victims are all the real sufferers of abuse whom no one believes - also because of people like Smollet. He hurts the ones who are really suffering already and preys on empathy and pity for airtime. I don't care if he goes to jail. What he did cannot be undone.

R291, let us know when you’ve taken Jussie’s cock out of your mouth and ass and would like to discuss this properly. Calling people who disagree with you a “Boris” is an obvious attempt to deflect from your total lack of a sustainable argument.

by Anonymousreply 293November 17, 2021 5:43 PM

R287, if you didn't mean what I THINK you meant -- that because a lot of white people (and black people) are fairly certain that Smollett lied in making up a story about a racial attack against him by two white guys, you assume that means we think there are no racist white people in America -- then explain what you DID mean, or SHUT THE FUCK UP.

Bottom line: It's possible to believe that Smollett is a miserable liar and also to SIMULTANEOUSLY believe that there are plenty of racist white people in America, including some who would indeed attack a black man on the street while wearing MAGA hats and shouting racist slurs. THESE TWO BELIEFS ARE NOT MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE -- only to someone with a pea brain, like you.

R286 I'm not the person you're addressing. But yes of course there are many racist white people in America. And it's plausible that some white moron in a MAGA hat could physically attack a black man.

It's just that the WAY Jussie described exactly how it went down- his story itself was implausible. I was sympathetic to him when I heard he'd been attacked. But the minute I heard his description of the events, I knew it was made up. It's just not how something like that would go down.

The last thing that anyone should want is for him to do jail time. Black people have largely abandoned him. Actually, like Dave Chappelle said, most Black people saw through it right away. It was dumb white liberals who ate it up. But any Black people who were defending him have stopped it. His career is ruined. And, he is a joke.

Having him do jail time would only make him a martyr. It would give Black people a reason to rally behind him. He doesn’t need jail time. He did a stupid, dangerous race baiting hoax. He wasted tax payer money. Have the trial so he can no longer hide behind anything. Then give him a large fine.

Afterwards, let him fade into a punch line. That is what he fears the most.

R318 Yes, that is what I am saying. He will not be made a martyr if he is fined and has to do community service, because the punishment fits the crime in that case. However, jail time would be a bit too extreme. He wasted time and money from the police, but that shouldn’t rise to the level of jail time. Of course, the race baiting and that fact he was willing to let other people take the fall is disgusting, but I stilling don’t think I rises to the level of jail time.

And most black people, who tend to be far more rational about these things that whites, would agree. Black people, contrary to what the Klan Grannies on DL say, are fine in calling out their own. They will rightfully rally in the face of injustice; don’t give Jussie that luxury.

by Anonymousreply 335November 22, 2021 3:58 PM

I understand your argument, R335, but of course, it's ultimately a matter of personal opinion as to what sort of punishment would best fit this crime. And you really shouldn't make stupid, racist generalizations like "most black people tend to be far more rational about these things than whites."

Right, but then it's about the judge's personal opinion. And yes, that would be based on past cases, but the judge would still have a lot of latitude. And unless no one has ever done jail time for filing a false police report, I think jail is an option.

[Quote]"most black people tend to be far more rational about these things than whites."

R336 Given the fact that in 2016 and 2020 most White Americans voted for the most racist president in modern American History, it is a proven fact that most White people don't care about racism. That is not a dealbreaker for them.

Black people overwhelmingly rejected your racist POTUS and resisted him for his full 4 years in office (and even BEFORE that).

Any person with a functioning brain in their head knows that racism is irrational.

If you check social media you will see that many Black people were calling Jussie's lies out in real time or being unusually quiet. Sure you can cherry pick a few who backed him, but the vast majority of Black people did not support him.

So yeah, generally speaking, Black people are more rational when it comes to issues involving race.

Yes, R335 is right.

And you wonder why Black people don't just "trust you" or "take your word" when you claim to know ANYTHING about racism...

Sorry, that's still a bigoted, racist statement. I have no explanation for why so many fools supported Trump, but even if all of those people are racist -- which I wouldn't doubt -- I don't think they should be counted as representative of normal white people, because they are insane.

[quote]Who would randomly have bleach with them at 2am on a Sunday night in freezing weather?

Didn't the bogus attack supposedly take place very close to Jussie's home? As I understand it, the only way his story would have made sense would be if the two MAGATS knew where he lived, planned a premeditated racist attack on him with bleach and a noose, and then staked out the place until he emerged.

I agree that Jussie will never admit he was lying because he knows for a fact that it means the end of his career. What he doesn't understand is that a guilty verdict would be even worse. I doubt that even the gullible Hollywood fools who believed him in the beginning believe him now. The best approach (besides not having planned and orchestrated this whole moronic charade in the first place) would have been to admit that he was involved early on and then following it up with an Oprah interview about his addiction battle or some other excuse for his behavior. It would have still affected his career but not like this.
