Jussie Smollett: 'No evidence' Empire actor attack was staged

Chicago Police have dismissed reports that an attack on Empire actor Jussie Smollett was a hoax.

The US TV star needed hospital treatment last month after a suspected racist and homophobic attack.

Local media reports about the attack being staged are "unconfirmed", Chicago police's chief communications officer said. "We have no evidence to support their reporting."

Well, if you're claiming some sort of personal achievement I've added the number and it comes to a total of none.

In fact I'm not sure where this stat is supposed to be coming from. I'm going to assume it's your usual source of "out the progressive bung hole."

Now as to what your sainted BBC said, they tell us the Chicago police are not committed to saying the story is a hoax. BBC forgot to tell you they're also not saying it's not a hoax. Basically the investigation continues.

BBC spends the rest of the article telling us how Smollett says he's not a hoaxer and how heroic he would be if he wasn't.

What specifically are you alleging the Daily Mail is lying about? You forgot to mention any specifics. Give us a quote.

Don't actually have one, do you?

I posted this on another thread but it's hilarious so I'll post it again.

It's a parody, satire kind of thing drawing attention to how ridiculous Smollett's original allegations were:

Multiple sources have told ABC7 in Chicago that police are investigating whether the attack on “Empire” TV star Jussie Smollett was staged.

Though a Chicago Police Department spokesperson said that claim is “unconfirmed,” two suspects have been arrested who were reportedly close with Smollett — appearing on the set of “Empire” with Smollett as well as recently working out at a gym with the openly-gay, African American star who claims that two men attacked him and screamed, “This is MAGA country!”

If the attack turns out to have been staged, it will be the biggest racially-motivated hoax since the Tawana Brawley case in the late 1980s.

A Fox Nation documentary titled, “Scandalous: The Mysterious Case of Tawana Brawley” chronicled an alleged racially-motivated attack against an African-American teen in New York in 1987. The teen claimed that she had been raped by four white men and was left with “racial slurs” scrawled all over her body. Brawley showed up at an emergency room with text written on her body including the words “KKK,” “n**ger” and “b**ch.”

The case served as a “springboard” for a young civil rights activist by the name of Reverend Al Sharpton, who led the charge of riling up the African-American community and assisting the teen and her family with the claims. The activism included marching in the streets of New York to demand “justice” for the alleged racially-motivated attack and high-profile press conferences to accuse members of the New York law enforcement community perpetrating the vile acts.

The story rocked New York and fanned the flames of racial tensions even beyond the Empire State.

Like the Smollett case, the attack caught the attention of Hollywood stars including Bill Cosby who donated $25,000 as a reward for information on the case and boxing promoter Don King who pledged $100,000 toward Brawley’s college education.

The Nation of Islam’s Louis Farrakhan also joined Rev. Sharpton as nearly 1,000 people from the African-American community marched in the streets chanting, “No justice, no peace.”

However, as details emerged the African-American teen’s story begin to fall apart and FOX News reported that “after an extensive investigation filled with twists and turns, a grand jury found the allegations to be nothing more than an elaborate hoax.” The grand jury found that not only had she not been the victim of forcible sexual assault, but that she likely had concocted the story as a ruse. It is believed that Brawley had simply run away from home for the weekend and — fearing her step-father’s punishment — had created an elaborate tale of an attack.

Although the grand jury ultimately cleared the accused men, severe damage had been done – one of the officers committed suicide from the stress of the case and a race war was incited throughout New York by Sharpton and his allies.

The Fox documentary called the Brawley case “the lie that made Al Sharpton famous.”

Could the Smollett case fall into the same category?

It is unthinkable, but it is possible that this is “Tawana Brawley 2.0.”

The African-American TV star has thus far refused to hand over complete cell phone records from the night of the attack, which Chicago police state has made it difficult for law enforcement to get to the bottom of the case. He also failed to show up for further questioning with police on Thursday, though his representative claimed he made himself available later in the day for a conversation. (It isn’t clear if the availability was in person or over the phone.)

If Smollett staged his own attack, it could be the greatest hoax perpetrated on the American people since the Brawley case, which took place 31 years ago this winter.

Unlike the Brawley case, the penalties for falsely reporting a crime ought to be swift and fierce in order to deliver a message that false claims are not only a waste of precious law enforcement resources, but an affront to every true victim of crime, bigotry and racism in America.

Sources: Jussie Smollett paid brothers to fake attack


Quote:
Several Chicago Police Department sources have told Fox 32 that the two brothers arrested and questioned in the Jussie Smollett case told detectives they were paid by the “Empire” actor to orchestrate an attack.

The sources say the brothers claimed they were paid by Smollett. The brothers’ attorney said both knew Smollett.

Fox 32 News has also learned that police found a receipt for the rope found on Smollett’s neck in the brothers’ possession showing they had purchased it from an Ace Hardware in Chicago.

The two brothers were released by the police once they agreed to cooperate with police, after detectives said they would charge them with battery. Chicago Police spokesman Anthony Gugliemi confirmed detectives have reached out to Smollett’s attorneys and expressed that they need to talk with Smollett.

Police are now investigating whether Smollett made up the story but police are still calling him a victim at this point.


I doubt all involved, myself. But more than any of the others - nigerian brothers, media or police - I doubt Smollett.

CNN leaning towards that it's a hoax:

https://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/world/po ... spartandhp

How many MAGAs are watching "Empire" anyway and would even know that this guy is gay? Since when was Chicago, especially the part that this (probable) liar lives in part of "MAGA Country"? First and best indication right there that it was staged because that's Tawana Brawley/Al Sharpton grades of bad dialogue. Smollett's a true moron if he thought this gimmick was going to work. I've seen more convincing staged "attacks" happen backstage on the weekly WWE wrestling shows. :lol:

Today's early update is that the muscle-y Nigerian Bros are co-operating fully with authorities & won't be charged, that the cops want to re-interview Smollett, and that they allegedly practiced a full-dry run before doing the actual "attack".

UPDATE:

Cops officially now saying it was a hoax, and the FBI is going to get involved due to a previous hoax "attack" with an envelope full of white powder Smollett apparently mailed to himself:

https://www.thedailybeast.com/report-ju ... r-reaction

Quote:
“Empire” actor Jussie Smollett reportedly staged an attack against himself in late January after a “racist” letter sent to the TV show’s studio, which contained a white powder, did not get a “bigger reaction,” according to a local Chicago news station.

A source told CBS Chicago the actor allegedly “concocted” the “staged” Jan. 29 attack and paid his “acquaintances”—brothers Ola and Abel Osundairo—over $3,000 to carry it out.

Smollett reportedly opened the letter on Jan. 22 at Chicago’s Cinespace Studios, and the white powder prompted a HAZMAT team to respond. Chicago Police Department told the news station that the substance turned out to be asprin. Cinespace Studios would not comment to The Daily Beast about the incident. Fox, "Empire's" network, also declined to provide comment or confirmation.

The missive itself contained letters cut out from magazines to create “racial and homophobic threats” towards Smollett specifically. During a search of the Osundairo brothers’ home last week, CPD reportedly found and took a “magazine, a wallet with stamps and piece of paper/writing.” According to CBS Chicago, the FBI is now handling the probe into the letter.


Smollett's gone from being just a self-involved fool into a genuine attention-craving narcissistic nutcase if this is true. 8O

And he's all but guaranteed he'll never work in show-business again. Just a few days ago Lee Daniels went to bat for him saying that there never was any intention to write Smollet off the show which was being speculated as possible motive for the hoax.

We'll he's written himself off the show now.
