Police deny investigating if Jussie Smollett attack was staged

Reports are emerging to suggest that the racist, homophobic assault on ’Empire’ actor Jussie Smollett earlier this month was a hoax and staged by him because his character was being written off the show. Two ’persons of interest’ have reportedly confessed to staging the hate crime. Police have denied suggestions they are investigating if the attack was staged.

It wasn’t fake, two white guys just happened to be walking down the street with bleach and a noose, saw Jussie and recognized him from the show empire because not only were they trump loving homophobic white supremacists, they were also avid hip hop listeners and fans of the show. The men who were walking down the street in the city Jussie doesn’t even live in with bleach and a noose in -20 degree weather then skillfully used their ninja powers to avoid being caught on any of the cameras in the neighborhood that is under constant heavy surveillance and then proceeded to carry out the attack. Then, Jussie walked home with no intention of reporting the crime until being talked into reporting it by a friend. When the police arrived, he was still wearing the noose around his neck to preserve evidence of a crime he wasn’t going to report until being talked into it by a friend half an hour later.

I have never seen a situation with so many articles written to assure everyone it was not a hoax.

Most ‘hate crimes’ are staged and a load of bollocks. It’s just a case of not liking what your hearing most of the time- it’s nothing to do with your colour- you’d still be a cunt if you were (add colour/ race). Worlds going mad!!

They should arrest this fool for faking an attack.

The fact that they even need to make this statement tells you all you need to know about the credibility of the "victim". It actually pains me to use that word to describe him.

Maybe they should, since they are unable to corroborate his statement at ANY level, now they need to consider that the event was a hoax.

They want to make sure the I's are dotted and the T's are crossed. This is PR so that when charges are eventually laid no one can call into question the steps the CPD navigated to come to a conclusion. This will be investigated as a fake hate crime soon

I love how they put "Empire" in quotas (because he's getting written off the show) but they say hate crime like it's a simple definite fact

Here I could have sworn that bleach freezes at 18F we were at like -20 out of the wind so that's what 23 degrees below the freezing point of bleach.

Maybe not staged but he’s not telling the truth. I’m thinking it’s a Grindr date gone bad

Chicago is MAGA country just like New York and L.A. Most of the hate crimes seem to happen in those three cities that are the bastions of conservatism.

His new nickname should be Blasey Ford, because none of his statements add up and nothing makes sense.

Starting to sound more and more like these headlines should be re-written, "Racist and Heterophobic Leftist Actor Hoaxes An Attack On Himself" and he should be cited for filing a bogus police report.
