Jussie Smollett CHARGED With Federal Crime For Hoax Hate Attack — Here’s The COMPLETE Timeline

Written by K. Walker on February 21, 2019

Stick a fork in him, he’s done. Check out the damning details…

From rising star to charged with a felony. How the mighty have fallen.

Despite his success as a gay, black man, actor and singer Jussie Smollett believed in the leftist narrative that America is a deeply divided, racist, and homophobic country. He also seemed to believe that that this was attributable (at least in part) to President Donald J. Trump.

It appears that Smollet has orchestrated a racist and anti-gay hate crime against himself because he was upset about how much he was paid as part of an ensemble cast of a popular television show. It’s being reported that he made $20,000 per episode when the show began but is now making $65,000 per episode. Rough life.
