FLASHBACK: Actor of the Year Jussie Smollett Cries and Lies on GMA – Lashes Out at Hateful Doubters (VIDEO)

“Empire” television show actor-singer Jussie Smollett arrived in Chicago on Monday January 28th. He went out to get fast food at 2 a.m. when he said he was allegedly attacked by two Trump supporters in MAGA hats who recognized him in the freezing cold, beat him, poured bleach on him and put a noose around his neck.

It was -15 to -30 degrees wind chill on Tuesday morning.

Smollett said the mysterious MAGA men poured bleach on his head but bleach freezes at 18 degrees.
The weather on Tuesday was a low of -9 degrees.
Frozen bleach will not pour.

Jessie Smollett said he was assaulted and suffered a cracked rib but condo surveillance video shows Smollett walking past security to the elevator without telling them he had just been attacked by thugs who “beat the hell out of him” and “broke his ribs.”

On Saturday Smollet admitted his rib was not broken.

This was complete crap – just like the rest of the story.
Via Michelle Malkin:

And Jussie was carrying his Subway sandwich when he arrived home — he saved it during the alleged assault!

Jussie Smollett says he was talking to his manager during the assault but he still won’t turn over his phone.

The Associated Press reported that police had released images of “persons of interest” from surveillance camera footage, but were unable to find footage of Smollett being attacked.

The persons depicted in the police video were said to be walking away from the scene prior to 1:45AM.

Now we know…   Two Nigerian brothers and workout partners of Jussie Smollett were paid by the actor $3,500 each plus $500 more when they returned from Nigeria to assist the “Empire” actor in pulling off the elaborate stunt.  The brothers even admitted to purchasing the rope at an Ace Hardware store.

The Nigerian brothers squealed on Smollett.  Jussie Smollett could face 3 years in prison for the elaborate stunt.


On Wednesday Jussie Smollett spoke with ABC’s Robin Roberts in his first interview since his alleged attack.

He cried and lied.

Smollett cried during the interview with Robin Roberts.

The Daily Mail reported:

Jussie Smollett has given his first interview about the shocking racist and homophobic attack he was subjected to as he walked home from a Subway in Chicago last month at 2am.

The Empire actor spoke to ABC’s Robin Roberts for an interview that will air on Good Morning America on Thursday morning.

In a brief promo for the interview, he is seen tearing up after Roberts asked him if he feared for his life at any point during the attack.

It is the first time the 36-year-old himself will answer questions on camera about the incident which shocked the nation and has brought an avalanche of both sympathy and scrutiny Smollett’s way.

In the initial aftermath of the attack, Smollett received an outpouring of support from celebrities and fans alike who all condemned the discrimination he was subjected to.
