CHICAGO PD SAYS JUSSIE SMOLLETT STAGED ATTACK BECAUSE HE WAS ‘DISSATISFIED WITH HIS SALARY’
Thursday, Feb 21, 2019

Things just keep getting worse for Jussie Smollett! The Empire actor was arrested on Thursday after turning himself in and is facing a Class 4 felony for falsifying a a police report. During a press conference held by the Chicago PD, Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson shared details of Smollett’s arrest.

“Jussie Smollett took advantage of the pain and anger of racism to promote his career,” Johnson said. “I’m left hanging my head and asking why. Why would anyone, especially an African-American man, use the symbolism of a noose?”

Smollett reportedly gave Ola and Abel Osundairo a $3,500 check to stage the brutal attack after the menacing letters sent to Empire didn’t get the desired attention. The two Nigerian brothers were released without charges and are no longer considered as suspects. Jussie will appear in court for a bond hearing today and is facing up to 3 years in prison. Tune in above to see what our Dish Nation hosts think!


THE JUSSIE SMOLLETT INCIDENT HAS BECOME THE ‘EMPIRE’ AND ‘LAW & ORDER’ CROSSOVER EPISODE NO ONE ASKED FOR
