I think someone on Reddit made a pretty decent argument:
Quote:
His story makes absolutely no sense.

He claims he was attacked outside a Subway at 2am on one of the coldest nights of the year (was around -20 degrees that night) by two random people while he was talking to his manager on his phone. These two random people happened to be carrying a noose and bleach with them, and shouted "this is MAGA country" while attacking him. He chooses not to report this to the police, until 45 minutes later when he returns to his hotel and a friend convinces him to report it.

This starts to fall apart in many different ways. First, there was no physical sign of an attack (except for the noose) and even his sandwich remained perfectly intact. Despite his own statement to the police that he did not want to report the crime until almost an hour later when a friend convinced him, when the police arrived he was still wearing the noose. He told the police that he didn't take it off because he wanted to preserve evidence of a crime he didn't want to report in the first place until he was convinced to do so almost an hour later. This makes no sense. While Smollett was off camera for a few minutes, there was no one coming or going from that area captured by the surrounding cameras.

It also happened to occur in one of the most camera-intensive areas of Chicago. Despite the police reviewing hundreds of hours of footage for an event could have only occurred within a few minutes time frame, they could not find anyone at all that even remotely resembled the described suspects. It's not like it was hard to pick them out in a crowd, it was 2am in Chicago in -20degree weather; the streets were barren. There was absolutely no one walking around carrying rope and bleach at that time in the surrounding area. Literally the only 2 people the police could find on the cameras were two black men who could not possibly be the suspects from Smollett's description.

Further, since it was -20degrees outside, anybody outside would be wearing heavy winter clothing. It's pretty hard to imagine (but not impossible) that two hardcore MAGA supporters would recognize a c-list celebrity (who normally lives in California, so not a local) that was bundled in winter clothes from Empire. Not only that, but they recognized him while carrying bleach and rope at 2am walking around random streets in Chicago.
Now until the Chicago Police Department formally states that the he made up the story, I'm not jumping on the "he made it up" bandwagon just yet, but goddamnit... it sure does look like he's full of shit.

EDIT: Also the fact that he's not very forthcoming with his phone records doesn't exactly help his case either.

Somethings rotten in Chi-town. I'm thinking it very well might be a case of coverup to protect the trump haters.
Chicago PD chief, mayor of the city and the gov are all anti trump anti Republican. We'll see how it plays out. P

iirc he was getting written off of the show, because he was a shit actor. Those two brother's one was an extra on the show. He probably convinced them to do this so he would be 'popular' and help them get roles in empire or his next gig. The brother's desperately wanted to be actors. He played them, the police, and the dumb ass liberal media with his fake racist maga hating made up attack.

He should be charged 2x the normal sentence for a hate crime.

https://abc7chicago.com/sources-poli...thers/5138497/

He calls himself the gay tupac what a loser.

Non of his story makes any sense as was quoted above.

I will be bullshit if they let him walk and say they can't find the attackers.

New development- just being reported, detectives have evidence that the two Nigerian fellas bought the rope used in the 'racist attack' from a local ace hardware store. The two bros then agreed to cooperate. Not 100% confirmed at this point but we'll see how it shakes out.
The empire actor guy lawyered up, interesting.

From TMZ, so holding breath with how reliable this is, but:

Attorney Gloria Schmidt was at the Chicago police station Friday night, after her clients, Ola and Abel Osundairo, were released from custody. Schmidt said the "new evidence" that triggered the release of her clients was something they knew and presumably told cops.

Our photog asked Schmidt flat out if the "attack" was staged, and she answered obliquely, saying there were moving parts and she didn't want to speculate.

As we reported, Ola and Abel both worked on "Empire," and Abel was especially friendly with Jussie.

And, something else interesting ... she wouldn't answer why her clients went to Nigeria the day of the alleged attack, but added it was a "great question."

She said she didn't want to speak for her clients because they had a story to tell "when the time is right." That clearly sounds like they have inside information about what went down at Jussie's apartment building.

I heard it on another network so it's making the rounds which is good.

Agreed, they likely have vid of the guys shopping for just the right type of rope for that a white lynch mob would use. Sounds to me like they have written, taped confessions at the precinct at this point and I hope they took their passports. Don't want these dudes skipping. Good thing Jussie or whatever his name lawyered up, and for his sake I hope he has a good one. I think he's going to need it.

If this story pans out I'm curious to see how the left handles it, especially Booker and Harris. Should be good ammo for the election coming up and at the least laugh worthy.

I'm trying to avoid jumping the gun like so many others do. Hence, I will reserve judgement until the outcome is more solid and confirmed.

So this is my prediction, based on a somewhat similar story in Toronto about a year ago. A young muslim girl wearing a hijab reported being attacked by racists who tried to take her hijab off and assaulted her while shouting racist remarks. This happened while she was on her way to school. Police were called and the investigation began, the MSM, Mayor of Toronto, Premier of Ontario and Prime Minister were all suitable outraged. The investigation revealed that the whole thing was made up. Afterwards, to a one they all said that we have to take these things seriously and that it was a shame about this and then went on to apologize and make excuses for the young girl. I suspect the media won't condemn this, at least not to the extent that will make anyone happy.

This shit happens all the time, as in...ALL THE TIME. I believe this is just the first time somebody with a bit of fame tried to pull the stunt.

I hope they lock this lying POS away for as long as allowed. What an absolutely worthless human being, there is no excuse at all for this crap.

The guy has posted some vile remarks on his Twitter ever since Trump was elected.

The sad part is he is a GAY BLACK actor who probably never faced any real oppression so he had to manufacture it. I donít get why these rich self entitled celebrities have so much anger against white people and especially Trump, he was beloved by them before he ran for office!

so here's a look at the level of interest the MSM had in this case up to the 14th.
anyone care to guess how much interest they'll have in it this week?

If this was another example of a faked "racist" or "anti-religion" crime, I can't for the life of me figure how these folks think they'll get away with it. The truth always seems to come out in the wash - ESPECIALLY when you involve accomplices.

It's not looking good for this dude from Empire and if it's all a hoax, that's a kick in the balls to everyone who has actually experienced something similar.

Smollett's costar had just won a star on the walk of fame a day or two before this fake assault. Could that have been the trigger for his need for attention?
