Fake Hate Crime: Hollyweirdo Jussie Smollett arrested for faking racist-homophobic assault

Early this morning, actor Jussie Smollett, 36, turned himself in to Chicago police after he was charged with a felony for lying to police when he claimed to be the victim of a racist and homophobic attack. Detectives had earlier contacted the actor’s attorneys to negotiate a reasonable surrender for his arrest.

Smollett, who is due in court for a bond hearing at 1:30 p.m. today, could face probation or up to three years in prison if convicted, a Cook County State’s Attorney office spokeswoman told NBC Chicago. (Page Six)

Smollett, best known for the Fox TV show Empire, is both black and “gay”.

Smollett told police that on January 29, at around 1:30 a.m., he was accosted by two men in downtown Chicago who shouted racist and homophobic slurs, beat him up, poured bleach on him, wrapped a noose around his neck, and warned him that “This is MAGA country!”– a reference to President Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan.

Over the past 20 or so days, however, Smollett’s story has completely fallen apart (Breitbart):

  • Police sources said the rope wrapped around Smollett’s neck was traced back to a purchase made by Smollett himself.
  • According to CBS Chicago, Smollett paid $3500 to two Nigerian brothers, Olabinjo and Abimbola Osundairo, who are also black, to stage a racist and homophobic attack on him.
  • A search of the brothers’ apartment turned up bleach, a red hat, and a script from Smollett’s TV show Empire. One was an extra on Empire; the other was Smollett’s former personal trainer. The brothers are cooperating with police. They told detectives they and Smollett had rehearsed the attack days prior to it happening.
  • The two brothers also told police Smollett was behind creating a racist letter that was sent to the actor on the set of Empire. When that letter did not get a “bigger reaction,” Smollett orchestrated the phony assault with the two men a week later. (Townhall)

At a press conference today, Chicago police superintendent Eddie Johnson said “The stunt was orchestrated by Smollett because he was dissatisfied by his salary.” Johnson said as a black man who’s grown up in Chicago, he’s “offended” and “angry” with Smollett taking advantage of the pain and anger and racism to promote his career:

“I’m left hanging my head and asking why? Why would anyone, especially an African-American man, use the symbolism of a noose to make false accusations? How could someone look at the hatred and suffering associated with that symbol and see an opportunity to manipulate that symbol to further his own public profile?” (Page Six)

According to Wikipedia, Smollett’s first name is Justin, but prefers Jussie. He is bi-racial: His father was Jewish, whose family emigrated from Russia and Poland; Smollett’s mother is African-American.

In 2017 in Los Angeles, Smollett pleaded no contest to providing false information to law enforcement when he gave police a false name at a DUI stop.

Update:

Sharp-eyed FOTM reader Maryaha draws our attention to the similar appearances of Jojo Smollett — Jussie’s brother, also an actor — and the man next to Obama dressed as the Baphomet. Here are the side-by-side pics:

The Left has never been known for its honesty, and this is not the first hate crime hoax going. I’m certain had Smollet hired two white men to fake the attack, he’d be happy to let them rot in prison, after he perjured himself on the stand.

Here’s hoping that Smollett serves every minute of the three years he’s got coming to him. (Too bad he won’t be able to serve it with that Indian who lied about serving in Viet Nam who banged a gong in front of the Covington School boys).

I had to look this up, the first time I’ve ever heard of this utterly pathetic loser. And really…Jussie? Anyone with the name Jussie has to live in a world where fluffy pink unicorns dance on rainbows and sprinkle fairy dust. That’ll change if he has to do time. Well, maybe not. But if it wasn’t for fake hate crimes there wouldn’t be no hate crimes at all.

So Jussie gets to surrender in quiet like a gentleman while Roger Stone is arrested on camera with dozens of SWAT Team members cover him with automatic weapons. Barefoot perp walk for CNN prime time news. Welcome to a nation with two completely different sets of laws.

These two pictures were posted on Twitter last night. Jussie’s brother, Jojo, is an actor and producer. He sure looks a lot like the man that was in a picture with Obama in a bizarre costume that was posted a while back. See what y’all think. I can’t tell for sure.

I read he paid his “attackers” by check. This guy is an IDIOT!

Fox t.v. station and the show he works for needs to fire his azz! But I bet they won’t because he is partly black and fully gay and he would probably sue them for discrimination. He is crazy and dumb to try to pull this stunt. Chicago does not mess around when it investigates hate crimes these days.

He seems to be a bad actor in both meanings of the phrase. And a RACIST! $3,500 for one role and another sum for bodybuilding and not one employee was white!
Seriously, good Soros material. Just an opinion, the activity of a person unhappy with both himself and position in life.

Comparing this guys brother to someone who’s in a photo with a costume of a transsexual drag queen in horns and Obama is disingenuous and really stretching things. Sharp eyed reader? More like looking for things that are not there.

Once again we see a Leftist who uses the tool of deception to get his way.

Since Smollett is a confirmed homosexual, perhaps he will find prison life
very satisfying.

Anybody with a modicum of common sense had their BS meters go off immediately when the “attack” happened. Besides the sandwich not getting beat up in tandem with Jussie, it was obvious that Jussie’s hair, beard , and clothes did not change color when bleach was poured all over him. Never mind the freezing point of bleach – one of the “redneck Nigerian” brothers could easily hide a quart-sized bottle inside his coat. The rank-and-file CPD, along with the detectives, also knew this was BS from the start. But since they work for the token Superintendent “Special Ed” Johnson, and… Read more »

Yawn. He fell upon his own pitard……and all those like him, too, will do so. It’s not EVEN hard work to round them up.

As a caller noted into the excellent Rush Limbaugh Show said, there are no real MAGA hate attacks on America hating, nutter DemocRats, so they have to fabricate them. (Though there are many real attacks by mentally ill America hating DemocRats against Americans)

From the rest it looks likely he’ll plea that down to one or two charges with probation. Too bad. The feds need to file one on the mail threat.
