Third-rate leftist actor Jussie Smollett apparently orchestrated a fake hate crime after his first hoax – a letter containing white powder – was sent to his studio. Damn, he was just turning his life around.
“Empire” actor Jussie Smollett, upset after a racist letter sent to the show’s studio didn’t get a “bigger reaction,” is suspected of paying two men to attack him a week later, according to multiple sources with direct knowledge of the investigation.
“When the letter didn’t get enough attention, he concocted the staged attack,” a source told CBS 2 Investigator Brad Edwards. Other sources corroborated that information.
Smollett received a letter containing a white powder Jan. 22. The letter was mailed to Chicago’s Cinespace Studios, where the show “Empire” is filmed. The letter prompted a HAZMAT response. CPD says the “white substance” was later determined to be aspirin.
Of course it was aspirin, because ricin is sooo 2003. I still believe in Jussie, because his story is totes believable. Isn’t that right, James Earl Jones?
