I'm calling total bullshit on this story. Headline I got this morning from The Daily mail UK was, "This is MAGA country" then proceeds to talk about this news story. Story seems fishy to me. I'll give it a week until the real details start to unfold.

Sadly, if his claims are true, there are a lot of people who will question it because of the immense amount of hoaxed 'victim signaling' that's gone on for the past few years. It's really a shame. It's almost as though everyone has forgotten the story of the boy who cried wolf.

His story is so convoluted and nonsensical. It reeks of bullshit and desperation.

Yet another leftist claiming to be the victim of an over the top hate crime. Wonder how long it is til it comes out that he did it to himself.

Famous actor by himself at 2 am. Not likely. I bet the attackers were from Covington Catholic. Those hateful bigots.

"unidentified chemical substance" ok, calling it homophobic too, this reads Islamic acid attack. Alas, more details shall unfold, we shall see

Reddits gonna have a field day with this one. Mind you, this could go either way. if we do have bad Trump supporters on our hands, we need to disown them and show support for Jussie to make a full recovery. I think its just as possible this could be another smear campaign initiated by the left in the wake of the Covington scandal. Simply put, anyone can go out and simply buy a MAGA hat and wear it while doing horrible things to make Trump supporters look bad. Hope Jussie gets better fully and quickly.

looks like a hoax, especially because his story keeps changing, he requested not to get an EMT , the "rope" (was actually a clothesline) was still around his neck 45 mins after arriving at his friend's place while waiting for the cops. no witnesses, no security footage, oh and requested to have the officers who took his statement to turn off their body cams. I could be wrong, but it seems a little fishy to me.

I totally disagree with police departments disclosing information via tweets, this isn't a beauty pageant it's law and crime. Also, plot twist the chemical turned out to be distilled water lol

This is most likely another regressive leftist hoax for publicity. Tim Pool just did a video on this story and he's call BS on this as well.
