Jussie Smollett Just Hit with a One-Two Punch of Bad News; Ouch, Ouch

Published

“Empire” star Jussie Smollett has managed to stay out of the news cycle lately, but now he’s gotten hit with a one-two punch of bad news.

Smollett recently had 16 felony charges dropped against him after the county prosecutor’s office decided not to pursue the case even though Chicago Police said they had a mountain of evidence against him. Prosecutor Joe Magats even said he believes Smollett lied about being attacked by two white President Trump supporters in Chicago yet saw no reason to bring him to trial.

It was a bizarre decision that left Smollett, in the eyes of county law, not guiltless but still set free.

But according to what multiple sources have told the UK’s Daily Mail, Smollett has been cut from an upcoming Broadway performance he was planning sing in.

Smollett was slated to star in “Take Me Out,” a revival of the 2003 Tony-winning production, alongside “Star Trek” star Zachary Quinto. That doesn’t look like it’s going to happen now.

“Everything was set to go and the producers were planning to announce that Jussie and Zachary Quinto were starring in the play last month,” a Broadway insider told the Daily Mail. “Everyone was so supportive after the attack and then suddenly, everything shifted.”

Time will tell if those sources were correct.

The Nigerian Osundairo brothers admit to attacking Smollett but say the actor paid them to do it and asked them to yell racist and anti-gay slurs at him.

Smollett, on the other hand, has claimed he had no part in orchestrating the attack and said he was shocked and bewildered that two men he knew would attack him out of the blue like that.

Now his claim that he fought off the two bodybuilders — while keeping hold of his Subway sandwich — is sounding even more like complete baloney now that one of those brothers has just been awarded a boxing title.

According to Fox News, Abimbola “Abel” Osundairo won the annual Chicago Golden Gloves handily by delivering a technical knockout to his opponent last Friday.

For Smollett to fight off a man like that — and his brother — while sustaining minor injuries is incredible.

Literally, incredible.

Meanwhile, Smollett is being sued by the City of Chicago for not paying the $130,000 bill they sent him for the cost of what Chicago Police say was a wild goose chase in investigating a hate crime hoax.

    Jussie Smell-it needs to be hit with federal crimes …like mailing a letter with a undetermined substance in it….and any other federal law he may have broken….one has to wonder what would of happened if there had been two whites walking around on that night….would they have been accused and tried ,then sentenced for a crime they did not commit….hell yeah they would have.

    • Jackie says:

      Mary, I think you need to scroll up and see my reply to Ba. You are part of the problem. What gives you the right to judge anyone? You seriously need to look in the mirror!

      • jw says:

        Jackie you have a problem ! It’s alright for the left why not the right !

      • Lee Price says:

        So Jackie, what Smollett did was ok? What he did was not racist? What he did was not a hate crime against white Trump supporters? Explain that to me.

        And Jackie, opinions are like ass holes, everyone has one. This is just other people’s opinion. But I guess, according to you, that’s only alright for liberal racist Trump haters?

        If you don’t like what you read, don’t read it!!!!!

    Jussie must have been pretty damn hungry to have such a death grip on a tasteless, so called sandwich, from Subway…you would think that someone who makes as much money as he does, would have some damn food in the house so he wouldn’t have to go out in the wee hours to find something to eat & get assaulted by a couple white MAGA supporters…those two white boys spend way too much time at the tanning salon…just sayin
    I hope the liar goes to the roughest prison in the country & every inmate makes him their personal bitch…he’ll think he’s a post office with all that male going in his box…let’s see how he handles the big “packages” getting stuffed in his box…😂😂😂

  • Meathead says:

    Okay, so Smollett is a Chicago POS. What else should one expect from that crime ridden city?

  • Maurice says:

    Pity someone didn’t ” Take Him Out ” !!!!!

  • Marie says:

    The way to “take him out” is for all Conservatives to boycott anything that he is in until his money is gone and he is working at McDonald’s. There are enough of us if all would put their action with their words. This goes for all of Hollywood!

  • Skip says:

    I cannot believe that Justin “Jussie” Smollett paid his “alleged attackers” with a personal check honestly I wish he would stop watching “The Jerry Springer Show” everyday it leads to committing really stupid acts like when Jerry Springer (Also known as Gerald Norman Springer) who was elected to the Cincinnati, Ohio City Council in 1971 paid for the services of a prostitute with a personal check. He resigned in 1974 after admitting to hiring a prostitute. The episode was discover when a police raid on a Fort Wright, Kentucky found a check Springer had written pinned to a wall in their office with “for services rendered” written in the memo section. It is so rewarding that President Donald John Trump’s efforts to help the economy have resulted in such full employment that Justin “Jussie” Smollett had to hire two unemployed Nigerian immigrants to beat him which for all I know he may have enjoyed it.

    Smollett is a lying piece of excrement! If the FBI can tie him to the “Hate Mail”, he supposedly received, they can charge him with a federal crime!
