Default Racial Homophobic Attack on Actor Jussie Smollet...

I'm sure there's no chance this story's been fabricated.

........in Chicago of all places. Should be interesting to see how this one plays out. Terrible crime, hard to believe in this day and age. Reading the comments on several YouTube videos, many don't believe it actually happened. I'll just leave that at that. Hope the CPD catches these guys, but then, most crime in Chicago goes unsolved anyways.

The morons on Reddit want this to be legit sooooo badly. White guys in ski masks with a noose and bleach at 2 in the morning down town? Yelling "This is MAGA country?".... Give me a break.

Me and a guy at work were talking about this yesterday as we both know the area very well. We both agreed that the racial part about the story is complete bullshit. That area does have a lot of bums on lower water and lower wacker. Was he beaten, robbed and called a homo....sure I can believe that. But the other shit he is saying, I’m not believing at all. The Klan isnt running around Chgo putting fucking nooses around black peoples necks.

Dude sounds like he got an ass kicking. Horrible I hope they bring the people to justice regardless of their motivations.

That said it seems like a weird thing to happen in Chicago. This was the city that rioted a Trump meeting into cancellation. Hardly "MAGA country" IMO. Wouldn't be surprised if there's something else going on here although dumb racists certainly aren't out of the question.

Looks like black on black crime. Pretty common in Chicago.

Nooooooooo, can't be. It has to be a hate crime perpetrated by red hat wearing Trump supporters in the 3rd most liberal city in America.

What are the odds of a black guy getting mugged by white guys in Chicago? There aren't a lot of white gang members walking around the city picking on minorities.

Just heard on WBBM AM that he initially said that he was on the phone with his manager during at least part of the "attack". But...........neither he nor his manager will give up their phones to help the investigation.

There seems to be a lot of people doubting this actually happened. It certainly wouldn't help the movement if people start making up racist encounters that never really happened.

Second City Cop weighs in:

Quote:
"Persons of Interest" Photos
Following the alleged "attack" on Lower Water Street, nearly twenty detectives scoured nearby businesses and properties for even a single frame of video footage of the "suspects." This is what they found:





So on the second coldest night of the year, a Hollywood actor, bundled up against -20 degree wind chill, was recognized by two "fans" in the dead of 0200 hours, on Lower Water Street (a known hangout for the seedy underbelly of MAGA supporters?) who happened to be carrying a canister of bleach and a piece of string, just in case they ran across a black, gay, Hollywood actor wrapped up against the elements in a place known more for homelessness than for the star set being seen in public.

Sounds completely believable, especially the part about this being "MAGA country" hours after the first interview and the insistence that body cameras being turned off (for a guy who makes his living in front of cameras) and the seeking of medical attention after (A) turning down an ambulance and (B) heading to the hospital hours later. Our contacts say that the "persons of interest" happened to wander into a camera frame and seem to have had nothing to do with the event in question - but the bosses want to look like they're doing something to appease Rahm and the Hollywood money people - Empire is losing money and viewers - so it's "All Hands on Dicks!"

In other news, another two percentage points were shaved off the clearance rate.

Steve Harvey made sure to put out a video about how horrible this alleged attack is...but it was based on racism, not sexual preference in his opinion. Gotta love seeing Hollywood elite leftists dismissing other targets of hate crimes to boost their own agenda.

Steve Harvey is showing incredibly strong support for Jussie Smollett -- particularly as a black man, but he seems to be dismissing one major part of the alleged attack.

Steve posted this video undoubtedly to make it clear how much support Jussie is getting around the country. As he put it, "I don't have all that eloquent stuff to say. As a black man in this country, I'm down with you."

He also made a point of saying, "This ain't about sexual preference or nothing."

I saw this comment on Yahoo and it made me chuckle...

Heard today that they arent sure if it was bleach, but was some kind of chemical. It was probably one of the bums from lower wacker piss.

This story keeps getting better and better. You know when people get into a lie and it just spirals out of control because they can't get out of it? This is it: https://www.tmz.com/2019/01/31/jussi...ttack-chicago

Quote:
A woman who lives in Jussie Smollett's apartment building told cops she saw a suspicious man -- whom she said looked like a "redneck" -- loitering just outside the entrance to the building an hour and a half before Jussie says he was attacked.

The woman -- who asked us not to use her name -- tells TMZ, she walked out of the building at 12:30 AM Tuesday to take her dogs out and saw the man near the door, pacing between the parking garage and entrance, looking agitated and smoking a cigarette. She says, "He looked out of place." He was a white man with scruff on his face wearing a blue winter beanie, a blue zip-up sweatshirt with a hood and blue jeans that were too short, exposing "thick, grey hunting socks" with camel-colored dress shoes.

She says she noticed what looked like a rope, or a clothesline, protruding from the bottom of his sweatshirt, made of white and blue material.

She says he was staring at another man about 300 feet away, who was standing near another entrance to the building.

She says she got "creeped out" by the man, and after 5 minutes she retreated back into the building.

The woman says she went to sleep and woke up at 4 AM to go to the gym, and noticed a lot of security. She says the concierge told her Jussie was attacked, and when she told him what she saw, the concierge implored her to call a detective and gave her two phone numbers. She made contact that afternoon and downloaded a detective.

As we reported, cops have released photos of 2 persons of interest. We do not know if one of them is the person the woman saw.

Chicago PD sources tell us they have looked at numerous videos in the area in question, but have not seen any footage of an altercation.

It sounds like Smollett does not want to turn over phone records relating to this incident. Hmmm, that doesn't seem suspicious at all.

I'm really curious as to what went down. Jussie did check into the hospital with a broken rib and a beat up face. So how did the injuries happen? Was it really racist/homophobic "rednecks" was it some crackhead who just jumped him, or did he just full out sprint into the wall to injure himself to set the whole thing up.
