Jussie Smollett claims he was beaten up, had bleach poured on his head, and his attackers hurled gay and black insults at him after the rednecks recognized him from his TV show “Empire.”
There are more holes in his story than aged Swiss cheese. First of all, conservative rednecks do not watch “Empire.” Secondly, he claimed that he was on the phone with his manager at the time, but refuses to let the police see his phone records to confirm it.
But, more importantly, it is scientifically impossible for attackers to pour bleach over his head without giving him a concussion since the bleach would have been frozen solid.
Actor Jussie Smollett arrived in Chicago on Monday night. He was out to get fast food at 2 a.m. when he was allegedly attacked by two Trump supporters in MAGA hats who recognized him in the freezing cold, beat him, poured bleach on him and put a noose around his neck.
It was -15 to -30 degrees wind chill on Tuesday morning.
So this is another lie.
JESSIE SMOLLETT SAID HE WAS ASSAULTED AND SUFFERED A CRACKED RIB BUT CONDO SURVEILLANCE VIDEO SHOWS SMOLLETT WALKING PAST SECURITY TO THE ELEVATOR WITHOUT TELLING THEM HE HAD JUST BEEN ATTACKED BY THUGS WHO “BEAT THE HELL OUT OF HIM” AND “BROKE HIS RIBS.”
And he was carrying his Subway sandwich.
The police watched hundreds of hours of surveillance tape, and the only person they saw in any of them was Smollett. They did originally find a video with two people walking in the area, but the video and the time stamps show they were heading in the opposite direction from Smollett at 1:45 AM. Just another Trump-hater trying to pull off a hoax.
