Jussie Smollett, an actor from the show “Empire,” has been arrested. He is facing felony charges for filing a false police report that claimed he was attacked by racist and homophobic Trump supporters.

The official charge is felony disorderly conduct which carries a maximum sentence of three years in prison. 

Attorneys for the actor released a statement right before his arrest. “Like any other citizen, Mr. Smollett enjoys the presumption of innocence, particularly when there has been an investigation like this one where information, both true and false, has been repeatedly leaked,” the statement read. “Given these circumstances, we intend to conduct a thorough investigation and to mount an aggressive defense.”

The filing comes after the two primary suspects for the attack were revealed. Instead of being homophobic, white supremacists they were in fact black brothers one who had worked with Smollett on “Empire” and the other serving as the actor’s personal trainer. They admitted Smollett paid them to stage the attack and were caught on camera buying ski masks, red MAGA-like hats and rope for a noose.

A sad and disgraceful turn of events which honestly, has been becoming more likely with each investigative day.

  1. since when did the dems believe in “innocent until proven guilty?” The #metoomovement” did NOT believe that, they “convicted” Kavanaugh without proof.

  2. The picture says it all: crybaby punk, literally and figuratively; typical of the bereft left when they are made to, which is very seldom nowadays, suffer the consequences for their abhorrent behavior!

    • The fact that Empire took him back convinces me never to watch it again. This coward almost started a race riot in our country and should not be allowed to get away with it. Let the punishment fit the crime and lock him up.

  3. I totally agree, he needs to be fired from Empire and make a lot of apologies to lots of groups he affended!!! Also pay the 130,000 to Chicago Police Department! Then go to jail for sending the hate letter and paying the two guys to play the part of what men hassassing Smollett! What a sick individual!!! If you can’t to the time don’t do the crime!!!!!

  4. He need to be put in Jail , No more Democrats lying and getting away with it . Or courts should NOT let him off the hook , or others should be let off the hook as well , Double Standard here , This could of cause a war between democrats & Republicans, NOT GOOD! he did the crime, now pay the time, clean up your act dude ! I mean really , damn this is some really some crazy shit with Democrats I feel like I’m in the Twilight Zone !
    TRUMP 20/20 MAGA ! Vote Republican , Let’s give them 4 more years of TRUMP ! That should do it ,Lol that is what they deserve !

  5. Well Jussie , you wanted it now you got it . Unfortunately it cost you your part on Empire , your greed got you fired . Not that you were that great an actor to begin with . But look on the bright side , you can find all sorts of boyfriends in prison , Bubba wants a new wifey ! Oh and , Jussie Smollet ? You should change it to Just Smell it !
