FLASHBACK: Left-wing media, politicians, celebs all fell for Jussie Smollett’s hate crime hoax
12/20/2021 // News Editors // Views

After a nearly two-week trial, former "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett was found guilty on five out of the six charges of disorderly conduct stemming from filing a false police report to Chicago Police about an alleged "hate crime" incident that he claimed took place back in January 2019.

On Thursday evening a jury decided that Smollett wasn’t telling the truth in saying that two "MAGA country" racists poured bleach on him and put a noose around his neck in earnest. Instead, the jury sided with the testimony of the Osundairo brothers who exposed the Jussie Smollett as a fraudulent act.


The entire cast of "The Big Bang Theory" did a photo-op in support of Jussie Smollett immediately following reports about the so-called hate crime attack.


"We must stand up and demand that we no longer give this hate safe harbor; that homophobia and racism have no place on our streets or in our hearts. We are with you, Jussie." – President Biden.


"This was an attempted modern day lynching. No one should have to fear for their life because of their sexuality or color of their skin. We must confront this hate." – Vice President Kamala Harris.


"The racist and homophobic attack on Jussie Smollett is a horrific instance of the surging hostility toward minorities around the country." -- Bernie Sanders



"This attack was not 'possibly homophobic.' It was a racist and homophobic attack." -- Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

There is no such thing as “racially charged."

This attack was not “possibly” homophobic. It was a racist and homophobic attack.

If you don’t like what is happening to our country, then work to change it. It is no one’s job to water down or sugar-coat the rise of hate crimes. https://t.co/QAi0IYtSeR

What happened to Jussie Smollett is another reminder that white supremacy thrives off of anti-Blackness and homophobia.

We know what “MAGA” means, we know what that red hat represents and we know the man who empowered those racists to do what they did.

It must stop.

The special prosecutor in the case told reporters that lying under oath will come up at Smollett’s sentencing hearing. He’s being kept on his recognizance bond but will have to come to Chicago in-person for his sentencing.
