Jussie Smollett Is Dead On Arrival 👎🏾
Jussie Smollett was unhappy about his salary on ‘Empire’, but instead of hiring a better agent to renegotiate his deal with FOX, the actor/director/singer staged his own fake news hate crime. Smollett paid two brothers (by check) $3500 to put a noose around his neck, pour bleach on him, wear red caps and claimed they were yelling “This is MAGA country!”

Chicago PD Superintendent Eddie Johnson on Jussie Smollett: "I'm left hanging my head and asking why. Why would anyone especially an African-American man use the symbolism of a noose to make false accusations." https://t.co/19yxceD53Q pic.twitter.com/qBU18buxAU

Jussie makes $65k per episode on Empire, but his life is now a storyline for the TV show American Greed.
Jussie Smollett is one of the most selfish and awful people you'll ever see. He exploited racial/political tensions in this country and put two men at risk of jail so that he could get a raise from his $65,000 *per episode* salary.
What a terrible person.

Instead of scoring political points, how about we agree that:
1. Jussie Smollett committed a serious crime and should face serious consequences.
2. Racism & bigotry are still serious problems in America.
3. Jussie Smollett's actions hurt all REAL victims of racism & bigotry.

Smollett had a rope around his neck simulating a lynching and in doing so, shot his career in the foot.
