Jussie “Juicy” Smollett, the bit part actor of the series “Empire,” has been convicted on five counts in relation to his ridiculous fake hate crime. The gay actor claimed Trump-supporting, MAGA hat wearing thugs assaulted him and threw a noose around his neck in January, 2019.
Juicy lied about the entire incident.
After a second day of deliberation, the jury in the trial of Jussie Smollett has found the former Empire star guilty on five of six counts. Smollett has been charged with six counts of felony disorderly conduct relating to lying to the police about an alleged hate crime attack that took place in January of 2019.
Smollett claimed that he had been attacked in the street by the MAGA hat-wearing white men that poured bleach on him, used a rope fashioned into a noose, and hurled racist and homophobic insults at him.
The hilarious part of all this is every accusation of a MAGA hat wearing Trump supporter attacking a minority has been a hoax. Apparently, this D-list “celebrity” wasn’t smart enough to know that.
The prosecution has stated that Smollett hired the Osundairo brothers to stage the attack, with Chicago detective Michael Theis testifying that they were hired after Empire producers didn’t take a threatening letter sent to Smollett seriously enough.
I sincerely doubt this piece of garbage will ever see the inside of a jail cell, but if nothing else, Juicy will forever be remembered as a convicted felon.
