The 36-year-old star of TV drama "Empire" told police on Jan 29 that two masked men beat him, yelled racial and homophobic slurs, poured bleach on him and tied a rope around his neck on the streets of downtown Chicago.

Public figures including Emma Watson, Katy Perry, Kamala Harris and Joe Biden led an outpouring of sympathy for Smollett, with Democratic 2020 candidate Cory Booker decrying "an attempted modern-day lynching."

The racist Smollett said that his attack was carried out by two white men. Which was a lie. It now looks like Smollett will be facing trial for committing a Class 4 Felony.

Emma Watson, Katy Perry, Kamala Harris, Joe Biden, and Cory Booker are guilty of jumping to conclusions based on little, or no, evidence. They heard what they wanted to hear. Emma Watson, Katy Perry, Kamala Harris, Joe Biden, and Cory Booker can't be trusted to tell the truth.

A ton of "Justice for Jussie" tweets have been removed by his erstwhile gushing Democtat and celebrity supporters. So, they no longer want justice for Jussie??

Smollett has truly destroyed himself. His outright lying and attempts at media/public manipulation to commit his racist hate crime are disgraceful. Admittedly the MSM didnt need much manipulation to pile on in support of him, and the silly cebrities (eg, Ellen Paige's cringeworthy vitue signalling) - thanks to Jussie theyre credibility is in the toilet.

Even Al Sharpton is calling for Jussie to be punished.

Yup. No comments at all. Just like when those Black Air Force cadets cried wolf. Smollett, for whatever reason or other, is crying wolf too. What a pathetic story & lie.

No comments at all. As expected. Kamala Harris pretender she didn’t even know anything about the guy or her supportive tweet when asked.
