Chicago police declined to protect disgraced 'Empire' actor Jussie Smollett or escort him through a sea of reporters and camera crews waiting for him outside the Cook County Courthouse after he posted bail on Thursday.

According to The Blast, a Cook County Sheriff walked Smollett from the jail to the gate, but that's where they stopped.

Smollett was seen leaving the Courthouse after posting 10% of a $100,000 bond following his arrest early Thursday on a felony charge of faking a hate crime hoax.

After posting bond, Smollett was back on the Empire set, according to Variety.

The Empire actor appeared emotionless, tired and withdrawn as he followed his bodyguard through the media circus.

During an earlier bond hearing, Judge John Fitzgerald Lyke told Smollett, "As you stand before me we presume you're innocent but the state read me a proffer that is outrageous. Using a noose during a staged hate crime, conjures up the greatest evil in this country."

As Smollett left the courthouse the media swarmed him. During the scrum a journalist shoved his beefy elbow into the back of Smollett's neck, but the singer did not react.

Smollett's brothers Jocqui Smollett (pictured) and JoJo Smollett left the courthouse about an hour before Smollett was released.

Prior to Smollett posting bond, Lisa Lanier of the State Attorney's Office read a detailed timeline of Smollett's hate crime which included how Smollett used the Osundairo brothers to purchase the designer drug Molly. Read the detailed bond proffer here.

    Awww...boo. All of us are one bad; I mean, one real bad decision away from doing something life altering. But we just pick up the pieces, learn and keep it moving. That's all you can do. Jussie this too shall pass. Not sure when? But it will tho..

  • Strappyheels

    Reasons why I do not respect a lot of folks in law enforcement. Seems like it’s all about bullying. They rarely resolve a situation without extreme violence. Jussie is an idiot, but he doesn’t deserve to be physically harmed because of this. Nor threatened by those sworn to protect and serve. Penalized is, fair. But to let folks know that although you’ve been sworn in you pick and choose for self whom gets justice or just hurt.

  • Fire & Ice

    Jussie is in turmoil over selling his manhood, for fame and fortune. All that glitters is not gold and all money ain't good money.

  • Dahl

    Those are very kind words. I’m going to apply them to myself, thank you...

  • Dahl

    “During the scrum a journalist shoved his beefy elbow into the back of Smollett's neck, but the singer did not react...”

    This would be a far better crime to report, ijs...

  • Shamari123

    There goes the police being bullies again. Yet they’ll readily protect a rapist or child molester in a heartbeat. Smh. Yes, Jussie was dead wrong about what he did but that doesn’t mean that it’s okay for him to be harmed by the public.

  • tia

    You're so welcome! Thanks so much:)

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    He is no victim ... moving on ...?

  • Renee26

    Since when do police get assigned that job anyway? Hell, Jusse is probably broke now due to having to pay for all this mess...so he could only afford 1 body guard instead of multiple....he didn't cover his head with a jacket and run to the car either (shrug)

  • Lady_Elle

    Yep! Nice words... so true!

  • Sushi

    Truth.......

  • SmellyMel

    Nope somebody is bankrolling this. Think of all the press the show is getting. Look how easily he posted bond. Look at his high power attorneys. He didn’t plan this by himself and he is taking the fall for all involved.

  • Lady_Elle

    Jussie is going to be EXPOSED to a sea of HATE!!!
    We can just pray for him.
    His family will be on the receiving end of all kinds of HATEFUL comments.

    I wish I would utter a prayer for him. His goal was to put other innocent people at risk of physical harn with his race-based LIES. He is getting exactly what he deserves.

    I see his sister is not even showing her face. I wander what she is thinking. I bet she gonna start using her married name.

    Thanks Jussie for the set back. One good thing is they say blacks don’t stick up well you had folks caring and took that for granted and for that ??You in the ass with barbed wire and lemon juice?

    Update:
    Jussie Smollett Back On 'Empire' Set After Posting Bail

    The network on Thursday said that it is "evaluating" the actor's situation and "considering our options."

    ^^ He went straight to he studio. He probably had scenes to film.

  • Fire & Ice

    That industry is very dark and demonic.

  • Fire & Ice

    In other words, if our ratings go through the roof, he still has his role ?. That show ain't never had this much FREE publicity.

  • Phillybruh

    Who did this set back?

  • Phillybruh

    She is probably on the set of her movie Birds of Prey.

  • Elevated Soul

    Yeah but he brought this on himself.....

    Jussie was told by the police that they had 2 suspects.He went to the station and was prepared to press charges on what he thought would be two White MAGA supporters. Once he arrived at the station and found out that it was his buddies,he decline to press charges but he would have pressed charges if it wasn't them.......

    I wish I would waste a prayer on this fool. He brought all of this mess on himself and his family.He has said many hateful things about President trump and his supporters. This is Karma that he is dealing with....

  • Chicagowise

    The judge who oversaw Jussie Smollet bond hearing, "dispenses justice with compassion."

    You made your bed now lay in it.

  • NeverSurprised

    The ONLY reason i have a sliver of sympathy for him is because I know he has been used as Lee Daniels' sex toy for the last few years. I can only imagine what unnatural acts he has had to perform, so that probably stripped him of some of his reasoning skills. But he still broke the law and has to pay, just like any other criminal.

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    With all those stuff going on I bet he ready to just get home and get ruptured ?

  • Coy little wink

    Whoo! ?

  • Evillene

    Jussie didn't kill or maim or molest anyone. Let the judgment -- and the public condemnation -- fit the crime. Ryan Lochte lied about being robbed at gunpoint during Brazil Olympics his only punishment was a season on "Dancing With The Stars." R. Kelly is still free and believes he can fly.

    What Jussie did was terrible but it doesn't mean he is a terrible person. He is not beyond redemption. I see injustice in the way his transgression has been magnified by the media -- and social media -- as if it is the worst thing ever. Far from it.

  • Sushi

    Ok, he did what he did, I get it.....But we have all made poor choices in life, and if we keep on living we are going to make more, he is still a human. What I hope does not happen with this is that he takes his life. I pray that he is strong enough, and has a relationship with the most high, to endure, and finish his race....

  • Coy little wink

    lochte got the complexion for the protection hun plus it wasn't a political or hate crime implication

    I hope he gets help he needs it

  • Junkanoo

    Now that's love his brother and sister stood by his side . Not sure what Jessies motivation were but this media circus is sad . I wish the media hounded all the bankers who caused the 2008 economic collapse shit that really matters ask them who they all bribed to stay out of prision .

  • Lady_Elle

    So true!
    Ryan Lochte... jumped on a plane and left South America!
    His buddies were left to deal with the police after the lie.

    Perfect people don't need prayer, imperfect people do, which we all are! I am praying for him, we all do incredibly stupid things at times. If this is true , let's keep him in our prayers, we don't know the method to this madness, seems like a lot of imperative info is still missing .

  • Sushi

    Yesssssssssss

  • stav

    I agree!

  • NeverSurprised

    He's a. narcissist. Narcissists don't kill themselves.

  • Evillene

    It IS a hate crime to falsely accuse some black Brazilians of robbing your yt @ss when you are a guest in their country and it didn't happen.

  • Sushi

    I'm going to have to disagree, with you on that... Narcissism , or not Depression is real....Being lost and not grounded, in who the most high is, is real, it's all over the T.V, Radio, and Social Media. ..

    Ha ha

  • Lady_Elle

    I completely understand!!!

  • Elevated Soul

    If he had a relationship with the Most High, he wouldn't have done this in the first place. His relationship is with Satan.He can change that, but that's who he rocking with right now.Everything about Jussie is fraudulent.

  • Lady_Elle

    I remember the first day of the story...
    bloggers on this site called this out as unbelievable EARLY!!!

  • Sushi

    Na, he has his orders. ....

  • WinterIsComing

    He wasted enough taxpayer dollars, no need to waste more being his security.

  • Chicagowise

    It's a predominantly white, affluent, VERY liberal neighborhood, but that doesn't mean outsiders can't show up and cause trouble.

  • Chicagowise

    Chicago has some very liberal judges. They are notorious for releasing criminals who deserve to be incarcerated. However, if it's a high profile case, public opinion may dictate whether the accused gets the book thrown at him or her. I have a feeling Jussie is going to do some jail time, because if the judge lets him walk, he may not be reelected. Jussie better start getting ready for life behind bars.

  • NeverSurprised

    I honestly have such a newfound respect for Chicago. I think he could have gotten away with this in many cities, but Chicagoans are no joke. You all do NOT stand for any contrived nonsense.

    I loved Superintendent Johnson's press conference today. He was so articulate, professional and poised. Great job!

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    Yep!

  • E Jai

    Gurl please....he lied and that was stupid.....but let's not act like this is the worst thing ever.....cops supposed to serve and protect kill black people without reason all the time. That far outweighs what he did.....so chill with the dramatics

  • Elevated Soul

    The first day of the story,I thought he had received a near death type of beating and that was because, Lee Daniels made it seem as such.

  • Coy little wink

    If you say so but I don't recall the Brazilians being identified by lochte or the media as black. Or any political implication. He had an actual dispute with security but called it armed robbery

    Its very different factually

  • NeverSurprised

    Chicagowise, what is Supt. Johnson's reputation in the city? I really liked him today. Can you envision him running for mayor?

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    He went on GMA talking the MOST, dumbest ish. With his crocodile years
    How he "fought back". Booty bandit, PLEASE ? Then he went on in front of a crowd talm bout how he's the gay 2PAC. I need to work for the Chicago PD because I could've told them from jump that this was faaakkeeeee!

  • Seldomseen

    Have you tried Mac Pigments

  • Sushi

    No argument with that, however, we all fall short.....

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    What did he say?

  • Elevated Soul

    There is a difference between making a bad decision and creating a plot of evil.No one is perfect but people need to stop making excuses for this dude.

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    And they did!! Jussie is the outsider. Brought all that unnecessary drama

  • The Chosen 1.

    Me too.

  • The Chosen 1.

    Same here.

  • 2gr8ful

    Praying for this young man, so glad the police stood up for their city of Chicago. There is rehabilitation and forgiveness but he needs to publicly apologize. It may take time but people will move on. No one is perfect but people need to see he is remorseful which he can easily do.

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    PR told them too. Jurnee was like, "nah I kinda have a career so I'm gonna stay away from this".

  • Mielle Downey

    My spidey senses tells me there is going to be a political twist to this storyline. He didn't plan this by himself and there is more to it I'm sure. The Africans know more than you think and they are not protecting them from just Jussie.

  • 2gr8ful

    Has Lee said anything since his first post about this incident? It went to crickets pretty quickly now thats some friends for you...

  • Seldomseen

    Then you saw that cat scratch

  • A D N

    The Superintendent went too far with his comments as well as the judge. Yes, he may have lied, but come on now...the truth hasn't been bashed like this situation. There are white folks staging, plotting and carrying out actual attacks against a whole race or religious group who weren't bashed like this. And to think the president spoke on this but not Steve King's actual remarks! I didn't believe Jussie's story from the beginning. But he's wouldn't have a lie to tell, if it weren't some truth in it from history and the present. There should be a fine to pay, group therapy (to learn how to be a better liar), and reimburse the city for their so called expenses they used to investigate. Wait about 5 years and reenter the entertainment world.

  • Junkanoo

    Jurnee is that the brother or sister am not really into Jessie so I don't know his people don't watch Empire either . Am pretty much bored with the entire thing .

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    Filming his final days, maybe? He runs away with some dude and lives happily ever after. Must be SUPER AWKWARD on that set

  • Junkanoo

    Jog on

  • Mielle Downey

    There is more to this story I'm sure. They were not protecting the Africans from Jussie sweet behind. THERE is more to this and I feel like there will be a political twist. Kamala and Al were seen together today and I feel like something is up and Jussie is just the beginning to the race pimp hoaxes.

  • Victorious82

    And many committed suicide...

  • NeverSurprised

    The only thing Jussie is depressed about is his plan not working because the Wakanda Bros dropped a dime on him.

    Is he humiliated? Yes. Is he afraid? Yes. But the same is true of every criminal who has had to do a perp walk. Jussie will be just fine.

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    What does that have to do with Jussie's lying as s. Look at all the white girls that accuse Black men of rape and the rape never happened. Wrong is WRONG. no sympathy for his as s. He orchestrated this ish for God knows how long. He wanted to hurt ppl a certain group of ppl and be accomplished it!

  • Eileen

    Jesus saves

  • A D N

    I think you and I are on the same page. Yes, he lied. But he just happened to be in Chicago, where they are filming the show. I don't think he sought Chicago to purposely bring it down.

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    Jurnee is the cute sister with the dimples. She was also on Full House when she was a kid as one of Michelle's friends.

  • Eileen

    If Trump dies then the globalists will come get your dumb behind...

  • NeverSurprised

    Hasn't uttered a peep, but Im assuming he's footing the lawyer bills, security bills, etc. because Jussie certainly can't afford $5k an hour.

    But other than writing checks, I'm guessing Lee is distancing himself.

  • Junkanoo

    This is sad more than entertaining or intriguing he throw his entire career away being shady . Hollywood is full of stunts this one got exposed . He needs to work on his mental health with a quickness .

  • NeverSurprised

    It's the best!

  • Mielle Downey

    He is already trying to get his sentence reduced . He told police he had a drug problem. What a waste of space.

    Yup, many victims and perpetrators did.

  • Chicagowise

    It's hard to say. I'm not sure how most civilians feel about him. The cops, however, seem to be split down the middle. A lot of white cops refer to him as "Special Ed" and frequently accuse him of being "politically correct." Personally, I think he handled this press conference very well. I think he's likable and would make a viable mayoral candidate.

    So we are justifying his behavior because others has done wrong...welll he could have kept this story to himself...no he made it political and a hate crime. Let's no forget he mailed a letter to FOX Studio prior...like I said before he went knocking at the police door...then went live crying and bad mouthing the police.

  • Guest©

    Amen. I joked yesterday about him lying but I have lied also. This story shows us all that the love of money is the root of all evil. I'm praying for him moving forward.

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    He thought his career would skyrocket. What a dumb dumb.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    He made it a public issue. He let the Chicago Police Dept go on a 3-week long wild goose chase over something he knew was a lie. Then he went on Good Morning America to double down on the lie. Jussie brought this all on himself.

  • Ghost

    I disagree on the viable mayoral candidate part. In my opinion he IS NOT a viable mayoral candidate. He got the job after the Laquan McDonald disaster! The mayor chose him to appease the black community! He has had a couple of scandals involving his cop wife and frankly I was DISGUSTED when the Black women started disappearing he blame it on their lifestyles! Once when have a new mayor...I think we’re going to have a new police superintendent!

  • Bonita

    Have you really processed the magnitude of what this nutcase has done? Because your comment comes off as mimimalizing the severity of this. You do realize how this sets us back as a race, don't you? Whatever you consider bashing by the Superintendent and the judge, was warranted. In fact, they didn't go in like they should've. As a Black man, to pull a stunt like this, is an absolute mockery of those Blacks who have actually been lynched and or attacked in hate crimes. I'm just baffled that you're concerned with who's getting bashed more, as opposed to being absolutely outraged by this. And to justify his lie based upon past and present truth? You can't be for real!

    Not me, sorry. Though tempted sometimes, I'd never do it because I realize I have a career and I worked really hard to obtain it. This fool used the ignorance of others to further whatever dumbas s agenda he had.

    We expect dumb sh!t from law enforcement. HOWEVER The sh!t he did was the type of thing where you just dont feel sorry for him. This isnt a small we all make mistakes. He took two serious issues and f*ucked them both up at the same time.. If you do dirty do it alone and keep ya mouth shut. He left his ass butterball naked. The setback and fallout from this is huge. There is no amount of damage control that can come close to fixing this.

  • Chicagowise

    In Chicago, a viable mayoral candidate doesn't me the mayoral hopeful is without faults. LOL I mean he is viable in the sense that he is relatable and he isn't a polarizing figure. He seems to dwell in that middle ground. He seems equally liked and disliked, by both whites and blacks.

    Frankly, I would love to have another "minority" mayor, but no one will ever mean as much to me as Harold Washington.

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    Jussie's hoax could have precipitated riots in some areas, people killed. You are worried about him physically harmed when in fact his actions could have killed people. And even now while coming out of the court house, you presume people were going to harm him. What people exactly? Trump supporters. Still playing that game. The only people that will harm JS is the others possible involved and not mentioned. JS is now their lose end. Also JS does need protection, from suiciding himself. But don't worry, he told his cast he's innocent. He has no conscience which is required for feeling guilt so great you just want to kill yourself.

    The video of the brothers buying the supplies...their testimony that it was orchestrated and they were paid...an Eyewitness saw the twins with Jussie...Jussie left the noose on his neck and right away he pointed out a camera to the police (which was actually pointed in another direction)... He refused to give his phone to the police. The police got a subpoena and when Jussie FINALLY gave his phone records up, he actually manipulatsd it and provided the police with a spreadsheet. He made their job easier cause they already had his phone records so they compared what THEY had to what he provided (he deleted the number of the brother, so that's what made the police suspicious). Like REALLY, Ray Charles, what other evidence do you need????

    The fact that he mocked one of the most horrific things our people had to go through is a hate crime against the black community, he has white lawyers ans white crisis managers but used black men two commit a crime...

  • Li-Wright

    page Six has this from his attorneys. Notice they don't say he's "innocent" but that's he has impeccable character. Smollett admitted to the judge that he had a drug problem.

    Jussie Smollett’s lawyers maintained Thursday that he has “impeccable
    character and integrity” and was “betrayed” by the legal system,
    despite mounting evidence from authorities that the actor staged a hate
    attack on himself.
    “Today we witnessed an organized law enforcement spectacle that has
    no place in the American legal system,” Smollett’s lawyers said.

    Well, he better start making a plea deal and try to get the charges reduced.

  • Li-Wright

    I thought the dude was security from Fox Studios....?

  • KneeSee

    Even though this case is draining, why is no one doubting the police?What if they're framing Jussie so they won't look bad? How much do we know about these brothers? Are they U.S. citizens? Are they drug dealers? What if the police is making them testify against Jussie for a deal? Why would he txt to get them to do something on the low and then leave a paper trail by writing a check? Did anybody see the date and time stamp on that video of the bros in the store? I think it's possible this could be a setup. What if police officers attacked him? They would be
    out at 2am and know Jussie. The CPD is known for protecting their own. Or what if the brothers are scammers and they want to be famous? Until he confesses, I have doubts that he may not be a psycho.

  • Li-Wright

    Read Page Six. He doesn't admit nor do his attorneys admit the crime.

    I'm more concerned about the African brothers. I hope they are OK and back to normal, doing their jobs. I know one of them was dealing in ectasy, I hope he's done with that.

  • Li-Wright

    Jussie did the Oz show? When did he have time to do that?

    Ummm Who said they dont have a problem with that?? Its not their fault those dumbass hoodrats wont stop killing each other.

  • Li-Wright

    Hmm...do you live in Chicago? The reason there is a high ass murder rate is because there are guns everywhere in the black neighborhoods. Maybe if nobody owned guns, there wouldn't be murder.
    And maybe if people, the witnesses would step up and tell what they know, the murders would be solved.
    And -- the murder rate is down! by 20% from last year.

  • the guest

    You are off base. The Smollets are black identified. Jussie is one man who is troubled. There are so many grounded and strong mixed people who are not troubled like Jussie. Tawana Brawley wasn't mulatto.

  • Li-Wright

    More from Page Six:

    Jussie Smollett has reportedly apologized to the cast and crew of “Empire” — offering up an emotional, on-set plea Thursday in which he maintained his innocence.

    “I’m sorry I’ve put you all through this and not answered any calls,”
    said the embattled “Empire” star, according to production sources who spoke to TMZ.

    “I wanted to say I’m sorry and, you know me, I would never do this to
    any of you,” Smollett added. “You are my family. I swear to God, I did
    not do this.”

    Sources told TMZ that Smollett was at least 30 minutes late for
    shooting on Thursday after appearing in court earlier in the day.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    It's not just "confessions" or word of mouth from the brothers.
    "Using surveillance video, in-car taxi cameras, Uber receipts, credit card records, and bank accounts, the Chicago Police Department built a case that the actor allegedly fabricated the attack as a "publicity stunt" because he was dissatisfied with his salary."
    And there's text messages also between him and the men.

"I’m sorry I’ve put you all through this and not answered any calls," Smollett said, per TMZ. "I wanted to say I’m sorry and, you know me, I would never do this to any of you, you are my family.

    They ALWAYS deflect from real issues with the bogus lies they have been brainwashed to believe.That type of fool don't need any proof at all but sadly many Black Democrats have that ignorant mindset.

  • Li-Wright

    According to THR he was making GOOD money: Sources familiar with the actor's deal on Fox drama — where he was
    recently paid $125,000 per episode — say that he never expressed
    dissatisfaction with his compensation.

    ^^
    I think it had more to do with the CD that's supposed to be released.

    Plus, remember after the so-called attack he went straight to his room....WTF??? If it was for real he would have run to the hotel security guard or front desk.

    More about the salaries
    "Smollett’s salary is substantial, especially for someone who was a relative unknown when he was first cast on Empire
    before its 2015 premiere. His base pay was originally said to have been in the $40,000-$50,000 per-episode range at the time, consideredtypical for an actor of his previous stature and placement on the callsheet. After Empire broke out as a massive ratings hit and
    cultural phenomenon, Fox and producers 20th Century Fox TV renegotiatedthe cast's contracts between the second and third seasons. (Producers 20th TV also gifted the cast Rolex watches as wrap gifts after season one.)
    Remaining in the second of what sources describe as three tiers of
    cast salaries, Smollett’s pay was elevated to upwards of $125,000 per
    episode. By comparison, stars Terence Howard and Taraji P. Henson — both
    household names on the top of the call sheet — started out earning in
    the $110,000-$120,000 per-episode range and, in 2016, were elevated to
    the $225,000-$250,000 ballpark.

    -- OMG, he was making a ton of money, so it couldn't be the money. I do believe it had to do with raising his profile (he was upset that Fox didn't publicize the letters), and the CD he has coming out....or he's just whack!

  • Li-Wright

    More about his Fox deal:

    Complicating Smollett's financials, however, is that his original Fox
    contract was a "360 deal.” That means it includes music elements similar
    to pacts for the stars of series like Glee. Under the deal,
    the studio controlled additional aspects of Smollett's musical career,
    and the actor-musician would earn additional cash based on iTunes sales
    from Empire music and from live concerts — should the revenue have come in north of what his original guarantee included.

    Hmmm call it out! Didn’t think about that. I think Jessie thought the Brothers were stupid and he could get away with it. Jussie isn’t in his right mind either so he didn’t make good decisions

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Looks like he basically felt he should have been a bigger "star", and that his Fox deal was holding him back. So in that case, it would be about money, stardom, and just freedom from a deal he felt was too restrictive.

  • the guest

    I don't believe Jussie is gay. He wants to be because it's gives him a sense of being interesting. It seems these young men have been abused by men in Hollywood and that "being gay" is the cost of the the ticket for fame.

    At this point he’s forced to keep up with the lie in order to save face. What a total and complete embarrassment he is.

    These are your liberals people. These are the types most of you follow. They make up sh*t, start trouble, and you all believe them. With The Donald it went something like this:
    The Donald: I'm president of the United States
    Dems, Leftist, Liberals: This nicca really think as President of the United States he's going to make decisions and sh*t. We going to have to show him that "we" (the Deep State) run this country and that the POTUS is nothing but a figurehead! We can't let him mess up our plans and expose our corruption!
    That's when all the mess about Russian collusion, racist, xenophobic, etc, started about The Donald. Smellet is a perfect example of how liberals-leftist, SJWs, Demoncraps, and career politicians who have been destroying this country for decades operate. Smellet is just one of their products but he failed in his mission so they will now disown him.

    It took 200 attempts for this country to pass an anti lynching bill.

    BUT

    According to a bond hearing judge Jussie Smollet committed "the greatest evil on earth"????

    Black people need to look at the bigger picture and not fall for this scapegoating. If they put 81 year old blind Cosby in prison. We will never know the truth about this scheme and who put him up to it.

    Did anybody consider the billionaire white liberals who bankrolled and pawned black youth activists with black lives matter and let the black youth get their hands dirty, and get arrest records, and let the black youth activists get shot at and profiled all to serve wealthy white liberal agendas.

    I could see Antifa and Soros paying a biracial black gay man with some fame to set up this fake attack because had it worked it would have served wealthy white liberal gay agenda. No one ever thought about that real possibility.

    Maybe that's what Jussie meant painting himself as a martyr calling himself the gay Tupac. Think about it. This whole scheme sound like a white marketing mind came up with it. I want to see Jussie's bank statements for five years. I want to see who's been paying his bills because wealthy white liberals buy martyrdom from black youth.

  • angelpat2812

    Hey guys, I just read this morning that that hospital bed Jussie posted after his fake attack was a "prop" on set. And the scratch on his face was makeup. And the swollen jaws were some kind of fillers that make you look like you been beat up. This is coming from someone who knew the makeup artist on the set of Empire. They say Jussie never went to the hospital either. I didn't know that. Like, they don't even talk about what hospital he went to, or anything about a hospital. This negro just lied about everything! GoodGrief!

  • the guest

    Thank you. Common sense tells us all that this was a scheme by people far more powerful than Jussie Smollet. He is a pawn.

  • the guest

    Because the whole thing and the CPD professed reasoning is a lie. Jussie was paid to do this and CPD will protect the powerful people who paid Jussie. Jussie is a scapegoat and a pawn.

  • Strappyheels

    Welp, everybody know your name now.??????

  • the guest

    I'm seeing what is going on...

    Jussie is not denying "faking an attack' but he is steadfastly proclaiming he was attacked. That's because he was actually attacked as part of this scheme he did not come up with. He and those two brothers were paid to this this.

    I know about the noose but we cannot tell someone how to REACT to a traumatic event. The camera part anyone can make a mistake on that he probably can't remember every camera angle but who can? Some people do not want to give their phone up for the same reasons he stated. There where a few media personalities who admitted that they themselves would not give up their phone. He could have personal photos leaked. Police have been known to do that. The two brothers on camera buying supplies does not really say much. Any of us can be seen on camera buying crap. The manipulation of phone records does sound suspect.

    Anyway there is no hard proof.

    I believe he only became gay to satisfy Lee. Its too much. I pray for him because his eyes are voided and that's not good at all. They need to watch him.

    If the argument is so futile and you have this desire to debunk your lie AND obfuscate with the “chicken and egg” paradox, why even respond? The truth and fact is that a MAN CREATES and GIVES that egg life, otherwise it goes right onto a bloody tampon and flushes right down the toilet. The woman’s body incubates it, that’s it.

    His eyes don't look guilty to me. They look like he's been sobbing or crying. The fact that his head is up and not down is interesting to me, as well. I'm not a body language expert. I wonder how Ms Sandra sees this.

  • Overpower Radio

    I don't see a homosexual losing favor with the so-called illuminati.

    I think the brothers sent that letter to the set to scare him into wanting protection, but when it didn't get the attention they had hoped they staged this attack. If this would have worked (to scare him) they might have been the ones he hired to be his bodyguards. They're getting out of this without being held accountable for their actions if this was staged. It's like the Chicago PD is like, shame on you Jussie for doing this for publicity, but you guys who confessed to doing this for $3500, you guys were victims. BS!

  • Renee

    Why can't he protect his damn self? According to his GMA interview he apparently got punched, and he punched his a** back. He was tough then..Really Jussie?? And... not to mention, how can he have got punched in the eye but never receive a black eye??? Only a small scratch..Black eyes last for weeks..no bruising??? Hmmm...jus sayin... There are people out here really getting terrorized for being gay and he wants sympathy for his crap... never!

  • jwoo250

    Exactly I never thought of it like that. Why is his head held so high?? If you look at R Kelly you could tell he was ashamed by the way he held his head down .
