Best line of the day by a very, very upset Chicago police superintendent Eddie Johnson re Smolletts resource and time wasting false police report.

"“I just wish that the families of gun violence in this city got this much attention.”

Don't even try to put your words and thoughts in my mouth. What I'm saying is on the screen. Read.

I dont get why this story is such a big deal, who cares if some obscure two bit actor concocts a bogus story.

Earlier I asked how this would affect his career. I think a better question is: will he go to jail?
They should have just kept the $3500.

I am sure the people who dedicated their time and money into this hoax care. Think of all the investigators(local and FBI) time wasted. Not to mention the articles written by papers and online sources blaming certain types of people when it was all fake. All of the wasted efforts could have been directed towards a real crime. It's bad enough that we have racism and bigotry in this country, we don't need to have people fabricating stories to garner attention towards themselves on false premises.

He must not have remembered when Morton Downey Jr. was attacked by Nazi skinheads who drew a swastika on his face in an airport restroom.

This guy has wasted a massive amount of police resources. An example should be set.
But, I'm curious...is a death threat against yourself the same?

His career is over.



If you frequent black entertainment blogs there was some skepticism expressed in the comment sections about this story from the beginning. Those people feel vindicated so now they arae pouncing.

Also, he's gay and mixed race, which makes him a target of the super radical BLACK BLACK BLACK pan african HOTEP types. They will be all over ranting because that's what they do.
I'm glad to hear your perspective on this. Thank you.
