Police continued for nearly three weeks to publicly identify Smollett as a victim of a possible hate crime. That all changed after police arrested two U.S.-born brothers of Nigerian descent – Abel and Ola Osundairo. The brothers said Smollett paid them $3,500 to assist with a carefully choreographed attack, police and prosecutors say.

I still don't see why the other guys were released, nobody put a gun to their head to do it, why let him go. And they stating he did it for money, he said that ? Something still ain't right, why were those guys released. What check, where is it, am I missing something, don't see it

Jussie is about to discover 2 things, first, just what demographic makes up most of the US prison system, and second, what being a victim actually means.

He was living the good life and he blew it. He makes it harder for others who struggle to be treated equally. Back at work? How can his coworkers work with him? How can he face them?

Way to go D*CK! While you're attracting all this attention real issues are being overlooked. For example, a white supremacist was arrested with a stockpile of weapons and a plan to kill key Democrats and media members that Trump routinely attacks, but everybody is talk about Jussie Smollett. Not to mention you have just fueled every right-wing conspiracist in America. Way to go Jussie!

I feel like he needs to be punished more the usual because his actions set back the gay/African American rights movement back so far. Now anyone who is legitimately attacked will not be believed because of this jerk.

What pisses me off to no end is that this stunt undermines the credibility of those that will be legitimately harassed and beaten for their race and/or sexual orientation! And it makes a mockery of the real victims of hate. And to top it all off it embolden the alt-right to laugh at real victims moving forward. I am livid
