Jussie Smollet

Jussie Smollett's story of being attacked while walking to Subway's is unraveling faster than a cheap lacefront. Even the gheys say they are done with him if he lied about being attacked by two masked men who beat him and tied a "noose" around his neck early Tuesday in Chicago.

As new details emerge about the alleged racist attack, Smollett's family released a statement on Thursday, calling the "Empire" star "a warrior whose light cannot be dimmed."

According to social media, the devil is in the details - and the details Smollett gave police are not adding up.

An unofficial poll conducted by Sandrarose.com reveals over 58% of Twitter users have their doubts about Smollett's story.

Instagram.com user TJ wrote, "Jussie that was a cute story you told. Now tell us how you was up on Grinder and got lured out to get some street meat by some dudes looking to beat up a gay guy."

    This is not a good look smh It really isn't.

  • Coy little wink

    Lol @ the gheys and the unofficial poll results

    I think Tyvon is a former Chicago resident

    I'm making a lasagna this weekend...

  • Evillene

    For the record, they could have done everything he alleged, even if it was a grindr setup targeting gay dudes. The Subway sandwich story is what makes it suspect.

  • facingrealit1

    This is exactly what happened. He was out strolling which is why he did not want to turn his phone over to police. Like the writer stated, it was FREEZING outside and there is NO WAY he could have been identified being covered from head to toe! That is why the 2 people in the "alleged" persons of interest are unidentifiable. Hell it is COLD in Chicago this time of year and the bleach would have frozen in that weather. Plus where are the "bleach" burns as it would have been worse than the icy weather on skin. This guy is FULL OF IT and it is time out with everything being blamed on Trump and his supporters. You can't win when you play dirty!

  • jeniefrumdabloc™
  • facingrealit1

    Exactly! Police say that Jussie was NEVER out of the camera frame more than 60 seconds. That is ONE MINUTE! Not one time did the "people" of interest appear in any camera frame with him.

  • shauna

    I think people in general see the holes in this story but I don't really see where the entire LGBT community is really giving it that much traction beyond the organizations/publications.

  • MsVAllDay

    who gets these polls?? I've never received one.

  • MsVAllDay

    But why did he need to do this?

  • Rayne

    Yup. I still haven’t heard CPD say that they’ve found it. And them some finding mofos.

  • interestingconcept1

    The hunt for meat is his business, still if he was attacked he was Attacked. And I would cringe if I had to hand over my phone...my hubby and I have been sexting lately ? he's out of the country.

  • dru and neil

    I’m starting to get confused, okay so he was out cruising the streets for a piece of ass? People still do that? They beat him up instead, yet took nothing? Or he was randomly selected by “MAGA” racists who know who he was, on the way to the *scheduled* hookup? Or there was no ass whooping altogether and we got a lying sociopath on our hands?

  • dru and neil

    I agree about the hunt for meat being his own biz, but what’s all the lying about, that’s why I’m confused.

  • MsSapphire9800

    POOR JUSSIE....Life will never be the same for you...now your community is talking....LAWD...It;s about to juicy and messy.

    Inquiring minds want to know!

  • dru and neil

    I’m like, did he just screw up his career?

  • Nik

    This .gif is EVERYTHING!

  • MsSapphire9800

    Yes...if it turn out to be a lie...

  • dontgetblocked

    No one and I mean no one is hungry enough to brave the streets of Chicago in sub-degree weather at 2 am for a damn sub. He possibly had a Tinder meetup that went wrong or he made the whole damn story up. Either way, he's out here looking cray cray!

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD
  • Elevated Soul

    I believe that Jussie is dealing with some mental issues. Drugs may also be in the mix too.

  • MsPam

    You’re right, I have my popcorn, milk duds and water ready. ?

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs
  • MsSapphire9800

    NO NO NO I am working late this week...I need the entertainment....2 masked white men power walking with a bottle of bleach and a clothesline waiting to attack.. in sub degree weather...It gets no better.

  • Sushi

    He was going for some strange, and something happened with him and the guy, they fought, he did not want to tell the truth so he made up a story, point blank period..... This is not a good look for him at all, not the going to get strange, to each his own, but this whole lie.....Child I can't. ...

  • Coy little wink

    It says sandras unofficial Twitter poll...I'm not even on Twitter so idk...she probably just read her Twitter feed and counted the doubters

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    I was thinking the same thing. Not today Jussie!

  • Sushi

    My thoughts also.

  • EMILY POST

    Don’t let us find out he had a seriously bad date and got all dramatic and ish.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    Lmao @1:13 "why are you gay?" I'm done, I swear I tried

  • NeverSurprised

    ????

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    LOL!! I cant take anymore. It's on every blog/gossip site. They running this chit right here into the ground!!!
    At this point I want to whoop somebody's ass for causing all this damn unnecessary dialogue.

  • Sushi

    Ok, hell why are you straight, that would have been my question. ...

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    “Should I call you Mr.?”
    Please watch more! It gets better but the lady handles his questions like a champ!

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    I'm still watching it!

  • R Smith

    If he was out "LQQKING", and got beat up because of a bad hookup, why report it at all? I mean, who would know? Did the perp(s) recognize him and threaten to tell the public? Why make up some $hit that don't make no sense?. And, he got his manager lying for him? Just too many damn questions!

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Right!! The Subway employee supposedly said they heard the dudes yelling the MAGA stuff at him?

  • NeverSurprised

    Jussie picked the wrong city to spin his tall tale, because these Chicagoans are NOT here for the subterfuge. I think he assumed everyone would automatically accept the word of a tv "STAR". Maybe the white folks, but these black Chicagoans are far more savvy and analytical than he assumed.

  • the guest

    I said it from the start.

    The story was a lie.

    Check my posts...

    Let me repeat. He went out at 2am in the morning in the freezing cold to meet someone. That someone betrayed his trust and set him up to be followed and attacked. It was a robbery attempt covered up as a fake hate crime to cover up that it was someone in his gay circle who did it.

    Also, let me add, he probably named dropped himself and his Empire fame to impress the someone he was meeting but that only led the someone to set him up for robbery. Also, Jussie is not mainstream famous to where someone would recognize and point him out on a random block at 2am.

  • MsSapphire9800
  • Soon2BWife

    Listen! Born and raised here and we are too sensible and nosey to get this game ran on us.

  • Soon2BWife
  • the guest

    I think he’s in an abusive relationship and was sneaking out to seek comfort and companionship and he got set up.

    Only a drug addict or an abused person desperate for comfort and companionship would go out at 2am in sub zero temps to meet someone.

  • the guest

    I was like, people still make an effort to go to Subway?

  • xenaD

    On the news here in nyc they said police had video footage of this attack soooo... but anyway even if it was a hookup he was still the victim of a hate crime! Tf

  • Logan Roberts

    Maybe Pussie was high on drugs and thought somebody beat his azz & took his sammich ?

  • StoneColdLady

    I HONESTLY don’t think that he thought this through...

  • Being bad is way more fun

    Lord can we just let all the facts come out .. So far they are confirming his story piece by piece but we as a community want to tear him apart. Let just find out what happened and keep the drama down !!!

  • the guest

    Did he have to throw in the noose, bleach, and MAGA hat? That’s extreme. Why wasn’t just saying he got beat up enough?

  • StoneColdLady

    So they have Olivia Poped us

  • Being bad is way more fun

    Have you seen him ??? He wouldnt have to name drop anything to get a date or a hookup.. They have him going tot he restaurant or at least on the way to it .. The truth will come out but I think we are hyping this up way too much ..

  • NeverSurprised

    I learned that from reading the posts the first day. The folks from Chicago were breaking it down from JUMP, telling us where each location was in relation to another, how long it takes to walk from point A to point B, the foot traffic in a given location under certain weather conditions-- you name it. I have been highly impressed.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    This dude and his questioning?
    Maybe it's the accent, but he has me ??

  • the guest

    Chinese food would have been more believable. No one craves Subway enough to freeze for it. Jonsing for really good Chinese food is more believable.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    Thanks for sharing, I enjoyed the video...she explained her position well.

  • MsSapphire9800

    That's is not what Chicago police website is saying....They posted...there is no media briefings today and no updates...

  • Dixon Yalips

    There is so much wrong with this post. First of all....I’m literally the originator of the post. I’m tj_thechicagokid aka jokesgalore on Twitter. Secondly, I’m HARDLY gay. Not even remotely. Third, Sandra Rose called me Tyvon lol. That ain’t my damn name lol. I guess she tried to make it seem like she had inside access to my thoughts. She don’t. You can slide over to my page and see my thoughts on this DIRECTLY and turn into my weekly live podcast on YouTube. That’s tj_thechicagokid on IG. You can find me over there.

  • Peace

    His career is over. The Empire era has taken a huge hit with this.
    I wonder if the story line where his character Jamal was hooked on drugs and the family intervened to put him in rehab was true off set as well.
    I actually loved his performances on the show. Empire was a hit. They have to address this ASAP. Kill his character off or replace. You cannot replace him. What was he thinking with this story.

    He has to come clean. Why was this a story to be made public to began with? Just a sick unexpected weird turn of events.
    Good luck with all that. This story is dead.

  • Chicagowise

    Meeting a new partner, whether it's for a long term relationship or for a one night stand, is one of the most risky parts of being gay, and if you're promiscuous, you are really living dangerously.

    In my 20s, I met a guy through a friend. I was smitten, because he looked like a muscular version of El Debarge!

    So, we exchanged numbers. We spoke on the phone for a month. He seemed to have a very sweet personality. After several failed attempts to meet in public, I gave him my address. However, for some inexplicable reason, I gave him the wrong apartment number. Long story short, he showed up with 7 of us his friends, knocking on an empty apartment door!

    Jussie, tell the truth. We'll understand.

    The police will drop this case. NBC is reporting the police have NO EVIDENCE OF AN ASSAULT.
    Plus, there are cameras all around his hotel building. One camera showed him walked in with a rope around his neck BUT HE DID NOT ALERT SECURITY AT THE HOTEL.

    Just Smollett's story of being attacked while walking to Subway's is unraveling faster than a cheap lacefront......... DEAD! And this is why I love Auntie Sandra https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/1c6d5d6a9025afbd295dbba9b1dc38bbb92f88febd56203e731e0a932553607f.jpg

  • CookieMobster
  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    That flushing sound you hear is Jussie's reputation and career getting flushed down the toilet.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    JACKED FROM THE INTERNET:

    I mean, a lot of people seem to believe Jussie is covering up for
    something else. But I'm stuck on he never had to come forward and report
    to the police in the first place. He gave his report to the police
    (something he didn't have to do). He drove himself to the hospital
    (something else he didn't have to do). He was released same day. If it
    was a drug deal gone wrong or a sexual tiff, no one ever would have
    known if he hadn't made it public.

    I understand MAGAs who believe that this is a hoax he's been concocting
    in order to gain the applause of the liberal media and make Trump and
    his supporters look bad. They said the same thing about the MAGA bombs.
    They think everything is a false flag, because it has to be, or everyone
    would be talking about how bad they actually are.

    And all of the people bring up 32 year old rape hoaxes or white people
    carving swastikas and backwards Bs into their cheeks, again, at least
    that's done specifically to gain attention for whatever reason.

    But my issue is that doesn't make sense in this case. That's what
    doesn't make sense to me, the same way going out just for Subway in the
    freezing cold in the middle of the night doesn't make sense to others
    (btw, I walked for pizza in below zero windy weather late last night,
    and not even good pizza, I won't shame myself further by mentioning the
    brand, but hungry is hungry and they were open).

    I cannot wrap my mind around why he and his manager would concoct a
    story to cover up something no one would ever have known about in the
    first place.

    MORE JACKED FROM THE INTERNET:

    Here's the video evidence that the CPD says they have so far:

    - they have video footage of Jussie at Subway

    - they have video of two men sitting across the street on a park bench as Jussie walks by

    - these are the same people who 15 to 20 minutes earlier are in the footage that has been released to the public

    - they have video of Jussie going off-camera and returning a minute
    later with rock salt on his outerwear and a rope around his neck

    - they have other footage of the two people on the bench also walking
    off camera frame when Jussie does, all remaining off frame about 60
    seconds

    - they have good quality video of Jussie entering his apartment
    building, passing the night doorman, and getting on the elevator, and in
    this video he has the rope around his neck and the rock salt on him

    - but they have found no video of an actual attack

    In addition, the following witnesses have come forward:

    - Jussie's manager Brandon Moore says he heard part of the attack and
    the slurs hurled at Jussie, and he reported this to the police.

    - Woman says she saw a suspicious and out of place white guy hanging
    around the apartment building with a blue and white rope hanging out
    from under his clothes

    - Fox studio and members of the cast of Empire say a threatening letter
    was received last week calling Jussie a "black f*g" and with a noose
    around his neck. The FBI is investigating this.

  • Bonita

    I get tired of people lying on our city. First Trump and the media making Chicago out to be some sort of murderous war zone (the murder rate that they put out was fake news), and Spike Lee trying to profit off the lie with that mess called Chi-raq, and now this fool lying about being the target of a hate crime. Chicago is a great city. It's not this place of doom that they're trying to make it out to be. I know people that are scared to visit because of the lies the national media puts out. There are far more dangerous, crime ridden cities than Chicago, but for some reason, Chicago is being targeted.

    Wasn’t no diss. If you are a journalist/blogger you should always make sure you have your facts in order. Again I ain’t gay lol. Gay dudes hate my guts because poked holes in his theory. Now Jussie isn’t letting police see his phone. He was lured out of his apartment at 2am not by hunger pangs but by is triggered libido. While the police publicly are saying they aren’t pressing the phone issue it’s to make him relax. ChicagoPD is preparing to subpoena the phone. They’ve spend too many man hours chasing ghost. So no my post wasn’t reflective of the LGBT community not believing him. It was the thoughts of a heterosexual black male. The gays still pulling for him lol. ??

  • Mielle Downey

    No she is not but it seems Hollywood is the spokesman of the democratic party now. All the awards shows have become political rallies.

    Thats a pretty good synopsis, but just a couple of points of clarification. They don't have video of "two men" sitting on a bench, they have video of "two individuals". They do not know the race or gender of the individuals in the videos.

    The woman whosaw the suspicious "redneck" 90 minutes or so earlier doesn't give a matching description to the one given by smollett.

    Police have said the rope was clothesline with the description being formed into a necktie, not a noose. Not sure its all that significant, but police were sure to dispute the "noose" language.

    Moore has said he was on the phone with smollett during the attack, but won't provide his phone for that to be verified by police.

    Where does the description of "rock salt" on his outer wear come from? I know there have been reports of some liquid being thrown at him.

    something I would like to see is the report from the hospital. I know police can't do that and it would be entirely up to smollett, but we've heard various things on the injuries. The only image we have shows one scratch on the cheek and supposedly he had a broken rib. One would think if there was a rope tied around your neck and there was a struggle that there would be some pretty good rope burns on the neck, but they aren't releasing any such photos and it has to beg the question why not?

    Read'm, TJ. 'Cause Juicy J must think we the last damn fools if he spex us to believe that story. Boy, stop. But now he got me wondering. Did he add the noose part because he had some unexplained marks from an encounter? Do he like to be choked? Ooooo...?

    a lot an happen in a minute, but what I would question is why these attackers went to all the trouble of stalking their prey that they hated with a passion, that they chose to throw something on him, tie a rope around his neck and attack him and the only visible injury was a scratch on the cheek. and then they just walked away somewhere? somewhere that police don't seem to know where they went since they haven't released anything in a report of seeing them on video after the alleged attack or any idea what direction they went.

  • Dainese

    Bloopity Bloop! "As a Chicago native". Exactly. From there too. Uber eats and Grubhub has some exuberant delivery fees. But if my dad is making 100k a year and uses it religiously, Smollett can afford it. Trust.

  • NeverSurprised

    Surprise, surprise! There is now a "We Stand WithJussie" GO FUND ME account. Who didn't see this coming?

    https://www.gofundme.com/westandwithjussie

    The money will supposedly go to GLAAD, but why turn this fabricated incident into a money-making venture? I think I know the answer, but I won't get on my political soap box right now. Just PLEASE be aware of how these people are attempting to benefit financially from creating faux outrage among blacks. This is straight out of the Alinsky playbook.

  • Faux Gibbler

    Yeah, UberEats and GrubHub is expensive for the average folk.

  • Coffee1st

    Don't get me started. Learned my lessonS long time ago. My old behind is in the house for the nite - doing absolutely nothing - by 8:30.

  • JENNYJONES1

    HMM SO TJ IS THE 'ENTIRE' LGBT COMMUNITY? OK........JENNY JONES!!!

  • chelle

    But I don't understand what he would have to gain by making up the story. If it didn't go down the way he said it did why didn't he just keep his mouth shut and make some simple story up about the marks on his face if asked? I just am not getting what he gained by making this story up if he did.

  • dru and neil

    This is the worst story he could have come up with. Toying with the emotions of the LGBT and black community, giving MAGA supporters all this ammo to use, faking a hate crime? He’s got to be crazy!

  • MrsSpice1

    Unfortunately i must detest that hollywood is a drug that will make you do whatever it takes to stay and be relevant! Not saying that is HIS case ijs...?

  • the guest

    Uber Eats is great, reasonable delivery fees, and coupon codes for free delivery a few times a year. Our family only orders in with Uber Eats. GrubHub is deceptive scam and fees amount to more than half the order cost.

  • Y me?

    U think he's on cocaine?

  • free

    most of the times it happens when the person is creepin. he got a lover to explain to.

  • free

    ...is a helluva drug!

  • free

    or strange sex.

  • free

    people have questions. it's called healthy skepticism. shit ain't adding up. it is what it is.

  • free

    it seems like he was trying to keep whatever happened a secret. i think he called his manager and the manager said, man you need to go to the hospital (because of the rib) and then it got out. if he hadn't had a broken rib, i don't think we would have known about this.

  • free

    i believe TJ. this was a meet, for some purpose, at a public place, that went awry. it could be sex, it could be drugs, but it wasn't on the up and up. as i said a little earlier, had it not been for the broken rib and the necessity to go to the hospital, i don't know if this would have ever gone public.

  • free

    he had to get his rib fixed.

  • free

    i remember you told his story. the grace of GOD! them 20s be something else!!

  • free

    the letter is probably legit. it put the thought in his head and gave him a story he could run to the police with when this happened. you think they sent him a letter then flew to chicago to meet him then ran into him at the subway on the worst night of the month?

  • Blue

    lol

  • LYRICS

    "Cheap lacefront".....that's ALL I needed from this!! LMAO!!!! I called BS on this isht from DAY 1!

  • Coy little wink

    Its possible. You asked why...

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    I don't know. I just thought this was very interesting when I read it.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    I have no idea. People have their own way of reacting to things. I am going to wait to see what happens.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    I don't know. I am just sharing.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    I have no idea. I thought it was interesting. People lie & people are crazy. I still have a literal stalker froman ex and we broke up years ago. The woman who wanted to marry him is still stalking me. Even though his story "looks" like it has holes, I am going to wait to see.

  • the guest

    THIS liar. And I feel bad for him. I do. Because I think he is being abused. Because only abused people concoct outlandish lies like this.

  • Shawty

    I'm not sure whether his story is true or not but.....I LAUGHED MY A$$ off at that information. Not saying I think his situation is funny if it happened but that comment was too dang funny.

  • NeverSurprised

    Do you have Door Dash where you live? They usually partner with a few local restaurants and offer no fee delivery or delivery as low as $1.99 (but that's not for all restaurants on their roster, just some of them).

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Annoying. Somebody's always got their hand out.

  • SpillyNillie

    He ran it all the way down..hit all the relevant points and I snickered. Jussie should've said he was mugged. End of story.

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    *snickers* I stopped reading at "street meat"

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Chile...

  • B.Loveitt

    Oh no not the "Street Meat!"

  • Nita Pie

    Who sent the letter to the studio last week though?

  • currvalicious

    His career will be over after this. He concocted such an elaborate story. If he's out looking to score sex & got roughed up, oh well, take that. This is shameful to go these lengths to cover up sex solicitation gone bad.

  • NeverSurprised

    Same person who added the MAGA part to the story when he spoke to TMZ -- the Manager (in my opinion).

    Police say Jussie never told them the assailants shouted MAGA when they first interviewed him. It was only after they saw that report on TMZ (TMZ got it from the manager) that they interviewd him a second time, and THEN he added that tidbit.

  • wigmon68

    I think its totally right to take a "wait and see" approach. One should not make up their mind one way or the other until all the information has been processed. We clearly do not have all the information yet. I do think its fair to banter about opinions based on the information available. I just have a difficult time coming up with explanations for the things we do know.

  • onelove

    right!!

  • onelove

    lol! first i heard of this...

  • onelove

    lol

  • onelove

    i lol to!!!! i don't think he know what he is talking about....i'm sure he can call Street meat to his room..with no problem!

  • Passion

    The letter send to the studio was probably a lie too just to solidify his story! Or he sent it himself!

    God only knows why he would call the police 40 minutes after the alleged attack and not immediately! Buttt...... He didn’t appear too interested in providing them with much info. He won’t give up his and didn’t want the body cameras on. Why call them... was he scared that someone caught him “doing something” and he wanted to cover it up. Too many unanswered questions!

  • Banka

    LOL the manager hmmm, it's a Scooby Doo Mystery..!!

  • Banka

    A lot of loop holes in this story, and nowadays anything that happens in public is more than likely being recorded, even if it's the person committing the crime that is doing the recording.....

  • wigmon68

    Is the broken rib confirmed? I have read conflicting things, but nothing official.

    I think given what has been released, I don't even know that there was a meet right before he walked into the hotel lobby. I mean police have video of him going off camera for less than a minute and absolutely no one else going to or from that area an hour before or after the incident (the other 2 people of interest didn't go the same place he went from how I interpret the police statements). I mean unless police are holding something back, I think its more likely that he had the bleach and rope with him and he ducked around the corner, prepping himself to walk through the lobby past a couple of security guards hoping they would notice so that they could call the cops. Maybe the redneck with the hunting socks and camel colored dress shoes and rope hanging out the bottom of his jacket made a delivery 90 minutes prior?

    This is obviously just speculation at this point, but its really difficult to fathom that everything smollett says happened did so in less than a minute but police not having anyone else on camera entering or leaving that area near that time frame other than smollett.

  • wigmon68

    I think its a fair question. could be its from a legit hater. There is no doubt there are people in the world capable of doing that. There are of course other possibilities. We just don't know at this point.

  • free

    i wonder what he's hiding on his phone??? i don't watch empire but is ratings falling? that's a helluva risky way to gain publicity.

  • Greatgrape37

    Attention. Attention = money for celebrities/actors/musicians

  • Karen Brady

    Good Lord.. as a straight female first I have to blush and shake my head at 'street meat'. And then I have to LMFAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. That's some colorful language child and I am here for it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Karen Brady

    Me too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Not only that if you got death threats or whatever that's even more reason not to go outside by urself like you don't have people at ur beg and call to get you a sandwich. They called the police because they had to give some truth to this made up story but its back firing and it gave the story legs and now its getting out of hand and he not getting in front of it like he should be doing. I wonder if the police is really going to "OUT" him if they can prove he is lying or will they cover it up as a unsolved case.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Do we know that the letter really exist? They said his ribs was broken and that turned out to be not true. Did they say this to make the story even juicer? Either way even if he did have a stalker I doubt very seriously that he was standing around hoping to see this man happened to leave the apt for a sandwich at 2 am in the bitter cold this is someone who knew that he would be there. Maybe he was chatting with someone who he thought was willing too hook up real quick and it turned out to be a man who hate gays.

  • Chicagowise

    It's amazing I survived my 20s. To this day, I have no idea why I gave him the wrong apartment number. We had been talking for weeks and he gave me no indication that he was dangerous. Whoever or whatever saved me, I am grateful!

  • Stl_heat

    I get it....Ask your questions but dont make a conclusion or condemn until ALL the facts are known. Shit does sound a little weird but who are we or anybody else to say it didnt happen cause we dont know.

  • Stl_heat

    Yall so funny in this thread. Yall baby detectives cant figure out your man/woman cheating but yall done told his whole truth?

  • SunSoy

    Stop complaining and get involved. If you want to see change volunteer and voice your opinions to political party leaders tell them we are better than that. Stop talking loud and doing nothing. Be proactive or is that to much work for you?

  • Kimocha

    Now I can actually see him being out at 2 am in a deep freeze for some "street meat" instead of Subway!!

  • peggy6824

    This sounds like the most plausible explanation I have read so far.

    Bleach freezes at 18-19F.

  • PetiteButterScotch

    This is some juicy ass gum right here. Sounds more believable than the original claims lol

  • PetiteButterScotch

    Gave the story legs now its getting out of hand—
    That was actually well put together. You rap? Lol

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    The problem with liberals is they don't think their lies all the way through to the logical conclusion. 40 minutes wasn't long enough to concoct their story. They should've taken more time or planned better.

  • PetiteButterScotch

    It definitely comes off as a orchestrated scandal to either play on the emotions of society n get everyone riled up or to cover up an embarrassing situation. I think ppl that lie and actually believe their own loes definitely have some sort of mental health issue

  • Canuck

    It's so clearly a fabricated story.
