Title: Reports Claim Jussie Smollet Allegedly Staged Hate Crime Attack; Police Say News Is 'Unconfirmed, Inaccurate’

Two local media outlet are now reporting that the assault of Empire actor Jussie Smollet last month may have been a hoax: Smollet himself is suspected of organizing the attack, which was carried out by two brothers, at least one of whom had appeared as an extra on the show and knew Smollet socially.

"Multiple sources have told ABC7 Eyewitness News that police are investigating whether Smollet and the two men staged the attack allegedly because Smollett was being written off of 'Empire,'" wrote ABC 7.

"Investigators believe Jussie Smollet and the non-cooperating witnesses in the alleged attack of Smollett last month 'potentially staged the attack,' sources tell CBS 2 Investigator Brad Edwards," wrote CBS Chicago.

The two witnesses are brothers of Nigerian descent, and were picked up at Chicago O'Hare International Airport on Wednesday night. A relative of the two men confirmed that they knew Smollet, as did their attorney.

"They do know Jussie," their attorney, Gloria Schmidt, told CBS Chicago. "They have worked with him on Empire. My preliminary investigations show that on set it's very tight. They're all very cordial with each other, so they're baffled why they are people of interest."

Police believe the two men were captured on surveillance video near the scene of the crime, according to to ABC and TMZ. Police raided their home Wednesday night, taking bleach, shoes, electronics, and other items.

A spokesperson for the Chicago Police Department (CPD) described news reports as "unconfirmed, uninformed, and inaccurate."

In a statement to Reason, the CPD said, "We don't have any comment as the investigation is currently ongoing."

Smollet was attacked at 2:00 a.m. on January 29 on the streets of Chicago while he was coming back from a sandwich shop. His two assailants allegedly put a rope around his neck, poured bleach on him, and shouted "MAGA country."

According to the ABC and CBS reports, Smollet may have staged the attack because he was being written off Empire. Fox has denied that this was the case, however.

With the police and Fox both pushing back forcefully against the ABC and CBS reports, it's impossible to say with absolute certainty what the truth of the matter is yet. But the fact that the two men evidently knew Smollet—a detail confirmed by their attorney—certainly makes inside job a more plausible explanation than random hate crime. At the very least, it seems vanishingly unlikely that the perpetrators were white Trump voters.

How do you know those two Nigerians weren't just wearing clever "white man disguises",huh? Huh? Huh?

In the entire history of the world,the only nations that had to build walls to keep their own citizens from leaving were those with leftist governments.

Well, when they were white assailants they also shouted "nigger" and "faggot". Now that they're black Nigerian suspects that's left out.

What are the odds, huh? Smollet and his two friends all on the streets of Chicago at 2:00 am in -11 degree weather, Smollet is on the phone with his agent who, I guess, never sleeps, Smollet is attacked by two men (though he retains his sandwich), Smollet refuses to turn over his phone (probably because he doesn't know how to delete all the kiddie porn)… and we're supposed to believe this?

PLUS, he had to make this a black/gay hate crime by Trump supporters, not simply a random mugging? He needs to do some jail time, hopefully in the same cell as some real racist, homophobic Trump supporters.

Who the fuck gets assaulted, noose around the neck with bleach poured on them... they run home after that assault, call the cops, wait for the cops to arrive... and the potato is still wearing the noose?

I call agitate propaganda bullshit... something Dicktard would do. Claim his property was stolen and he was beat up by the cops... when the property was a bail of weed and he resisted arrest.

Prove that allegation. Prove a thread was pulled due to my post. Stone would know beyond a doubt, if your allegation is true.

If you are wrong, please chew on a gun barrel.

Well, if Smollett wasn't leaving the show before, he is now. Maybe leaving Hollywood.

You need to TELL that maniac, GI, about his continuous problem. The punk doesn't even remember what he posted and now he has no reference about his outright publick death threat to a USSC official.

Stone doesn't realize it, but GrandIsland's sociopathic posts are the main reason his site is dying.

No one wants to be verbally abused by a juvenile psychopath who offers nothing but hate-filled screeds.

Computer Hope

Government is in the last resort the employment of armed men, of policemen, gendarmes, soldiers, prison guards, and hangmen.
The essential feature of government is the enforcement of its decrees by beating, killing, and imprisoning.
Those who are asking for more government interference are asking ultimately for more compulsion and less freedom.

If you understand the maniac, he claims to be a "law enforcement professional" with two pensions from the government.

Why is he sitting around a chit-chat channel, wishing death upon USSC leaders? Doesn't anyone see the loser's [GrandIsland] irresponsible posts?

I do.
