EMPIRE STAR, JUSSIE SMOLLETT, ARRESTED FOR FAKING A HATE CRIME AGAINST HIMSELF, JUST SO HE COULD GET A RAISE
Accusing him of slapping the city in the face, Chicago police announced Thursday that “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett had been charged with concocting an attack in Streeterville, because “he was dissatisfied with his salary.”
“Smollett took advantage of the pain and anger of racism to promote his career,” Chicago Police Supt. Eddie Johnson said at a news conference Thursday morning. “This publicity stunt was a scar that Chicago didn’t earn, and certainly didn’t deserve.”
Smollett is the lowest of low: he used the racial divisions in America to try and get a raise at his job. That’s just gross and what he did to do it is criminal. But come on cable news, this does not warrant 24-hour coverage, considering the other, important news of the day.
