A lot of people believe that all publicity is good publicity. I'm not sure I completely agree with that, but...
Yes, big time. And many will be angry with him if he set this whole thing up. When actual hate crime like this do take place, people will be skeptical and the gay community will not be pleased with him. Also, many supporters put their name on the line going out there to publicly support him, they won't be pleased either.

On the news this evening the police said he would be facing 3-5 years for a hoax if found guilty. The way the case is going it looks as if his goose is cooked.

Earlier I asked how this would affect his career. I think a better question is: will he go to jail?
Daily Mail has pics of them. They're HOT! ( https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...-brothers.html )

I have to wonder what other services he might have been paying them for, on occasion.

3 to 5.. Non violent crime.. If he sees 2 weekends in jail, I'd be surprised.

That being said.. It's sad that my first thought when I heard the story a few weeks ago was "Oh, I hope he's making this up".. Not from any political standpoint, but you just hope that our society has come further than what he described.

It's good to know that, at least on this day in Chicago.. We had.


He seems to be doubling down, tho. his lawyers are still saying he didn't make this up.. The interesting thing is.. He's "Corrected" an awful lot of things.. that they weren't wearing "MAGA" hats.. And, you'd kinda think if someone were attacked for being gay and black.. He might have mentioned that his attackers were black.. And if he said he couldn't see them.. That.. You know.. They had this thick Nigerian accent.

He led people, even if he didn't make everything up, he led people to believe that he was attacked by white supremacists and regardless, that certainly was his intention.

Well considering all the press coverage, considering all the discussions of this on the web and You Tube, and considering that you entered the thread...I guess some people do care. But for that matter, you could say that about everything is the Entertainment & Arts section of this forum if you wanted to.

NBC as well. In fact, it was the lead story on the evening news broadcast.
