Jussie Smollett Attack Plot Twist
Empire actor, Jussie Smollett has been arrested and charged with filling a false police report where he claimed he was attacked and beaten by two masked men shouting racist and homophobic slurs.


“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?” 

“How could someone look at the hatred and suffering associated with that symbol and see an opportunity to manipulate that symbol to further his own public profile?”~ Chicago Police superintendent, Supt Johnson

 20 February, 2019 – Jussie Smollett is under investigation for allegedly filling a false police report. A tweet from Chicago police communications Officer Anthony Guglielmi states  
‘Jussie Smollett is now officially classified as a suspect in a criminal investigation by Chicago Police for filing a false police report (Class 4 felony). Detectives are currently presenting evidence before a Cook County Grand Jury.’

Last month the ‘Empire’ actor filed a police report for homophobic attack and racism. However, it has now come to light that, Jussie allegedly orchestrated his attack after a threatening letter sent to him did not get much attention.
