So this guy supposedly staged an attack on himself. I did a Bing search of Jussie Smollett and discovered that right wing media is all over this like flies on a pile of dung.
FOX studios is filming his movie, they're beside themselves.
I'd say it was originally supposed to be a publicity stunt with the intention of playing on public sympathies. My guess is he demolished his own career with this cheap crap that he pulled. But we'll see .You never know what will happen in Hollywood. I haven't followed the story since the reveal came about; but yeah it was pretty embarrassing for some communities.
