    The Nigerian guys were released already so apparently they aren't suspects any more.

    The rumor He was being written of the show Empire and obviously the attack would bring attention to himself. Actually it isn't bad of plan because he would be the gay Colin Kaepernick if he pulled off without getting caught. He would be a high profile activist and people would support his career.

    Not exactly.

    The local news(Norther Illinois/Chicago) has them as cooperating with what is now an investigation into if Smollett put the entire thing together.

    Without trying to prejudge too much, they have let some specifics out that would seemingly be easy to refute if they are incorrect.

    Chicago Police also apparently want another interview with Smollett based on what they learned from the brothers.

    Moving on from what could be a disgraced actor if proven true ; to someone who is accomplished and all....Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are in Georgia shooting Bad Boys 4 Life. The 3rd film in the series. Smith shot a nice behind the scenes vlog of the shoot.





    Smith did reveal one thing in this vlog that I'm sure none of his fans knew.....he has high blood pressure and on medication. He showed himself taking it joking around with food basically. He doesn't drink water after seeing his dog do this.

    W.T.F !

    A Brooklyn precinct commander is being investigated by the NYPD for allegedly threatening the celebrity’s life — telling his officers at a roll call to “shoot him on sight,” the Daily News has learned.

    Jussie Smollett Case: Clues Into Potential Motive Behind The Attack
    Empire” actor Jussie Smollett, upset after a racist letter sent to the show’s studio didn’t get a “bigger reaction,” is suspected of paying two men to attack him a week later, according to multiple sources with direct knowledge of the investigation.

    “When the letter didn’t get enough attention, he concocted the staged attack,” a source told CBS 2 Investigator Brad Edwards. Other sources corroborated that information.

    It might be more serious than that. He didn't just see some white people somewhere, over react and call the cops. In an misguided attempt to bring attention to an important issue, he make have faked an incident and lied to the police. We're already living in a world where the police and the public don't always take violence against gays and minorities seriously, something doesn't help us at all.

    Calling the Cops generally speaking doesn't work out too well for black folks.

    If this guy really staged a crime without understanding how he could have gotten his accomplices and possibly other peeps that vaguely looked like them KILLED he deserves the worst that both the justice system and the prison system can give him.

    The level of fame he has now is due to Empire. His sister Jurnee (from Eve's Bayou, The Great Debaters, etc.) is the most well known out of his siblings.

    Curtis is also lucky as hell, IMO.

    If that dude-a Precinct Comander-really was shaking down clubs (those allegations are the source of their beef) who knows what else he's capable of. NYPD Cops tend to solve all their problems with a hail of bullets as is.

    Blind luck that the guy mouthed off in front of witnesses instead of actually having it done.

    You don't need to stage anything and pretty much END your career.

    We got plenty of examples that could be tossed out to bring attention to it.

    Better yet why not use some of that Empire money to do a film about it. Like a normal person would.

    He did all that to go after Trump and help his "friend" Mrs. Harris run for President. All he did was screw her over with this as she now plays DUMB about it.

    Ah okay....one thing that kinda irked me was how his "incident" got all of black Twitter quoting James Baldwin like he just dropped a single with Cardi B ...if it's a false report.... looking foolish lol
    I think folks were supportive because of the attack on a gay man and added bonus was the MAGA angle. However this made things worst for the LGBTQ & Black community.

    The sitcom in question was On Our Own with Ralph Harris (Tv One's My Momma can Throwdown) who dressed as a woman to keep his family together.

    Customer asked me "where's the story of if only White People had superpowers?" I handed them JSA Archives Volume 1, Marvel Masterworks Avengers Vol 1, Marvel Masterworks X-Men Vol 1, Showcase Presents Teen Titans Vol 1, Marvel Masterworks Fantastic Four Vol 1.
    He didn't buy them

    He could've offered Morrison's 90s lineup on Justice League, the 2000's Avengers with superficial Triathlon, or any X-Men roster when Storm isn't around. Here's a handy chart for all the times that black Avengers DIDN'T appear together – or at all. BYE!
