The Jussie Smollett hate hoax is about to implode completely. The two white rednecks he claims attacked him are actually Blacks from Nigeria and friends of his that he works out with.
Smollett claimed that the two men were white and told him that it was MAGA country. Smollett appeared in a commercial supporting Hillary Clinton in 2016. That could be a possible reason for the alleged hoax. The Chicago police say they are not ready to call it a hoax at this time, but the story has been falling apart from Day one.
It had been rumored that Empire was about to dump him but writers for the show dispute that.
The Chicago Police Department (CPD) said Friday the two men who were being questioned over the alleged racist and homophobic attack on “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett were arrested.
The men were identified as two Nigerian brothers, according to The Associated Press.
CPD spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said both were arrested on suspicion of assault and battery, but not charged, for possibly being involved in the alleged attack. One of the men worked on “Empire,” but it is not clear how much this person was involved, The AP reported.
Sources claimed the attack was allegedly planned by Smollett and the “persons of interest” could have been co-conspirators after learning that Smollett’s character was allegedly “being written out of the show ‘Empire.’”
“TOP SOURCE: ‘…indicators point to Smollett orchestrating the event….’” CBS Chicago’s Brad Edwards tweeted.
Stay tuned and make some fresh popcorn. This is starting to get good.
