A grand jury returned a six-count indictment accusing actor Jussie Smollett of lying to Chicago police, a special prosecutor announced Tuesday.

The charges stem from Smollett's assertion that he was the target of a racist and homophobic attack in January 2019. Special prosecutor Dan Webb issued a statement announcing the indictment.

Smollett, who is black, gay and stupid, was originally charged in February 2019 with disorderly conduct for allegedly staging the attack and lying about it to investigators. The charges were dropped that following month with little explanation, angering police officials and then-Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

Cook County Judge Michael Toomin in August appointed Webb, a former U.S. attorney, as a special prosecutor to look into why the charges were dropped. Webb was also charged with looking into whether Foxx's calls with a Smollett relative and an ex-aide of former first lady Michelle Obama unduly influenced the decision to drop charges. Foxx recused herself from the case but continued to weigh in.


Smollett told police he was walking home early on Jan. 29, 2019, when two masked men approached him, made racist and homophobic insults, beat him and looped a noose around his neck before fleeing. He said his assailants, at least one of whom he said was white, told him he was in "MAGA country" — a reference to President Donald Trump's campaign slogan, "Make America Great Again."

Several weeks later, authorities alleged that Smollett had paid two black friends $3,500 to help him stage the attack because he was unhappy with his salary as an actor on "Empire" and wanted to drum up publicity for his career.

I'm taking a free post for the Red-like behavior and for misleading me into thinking Jussie somehow dug himself even deeper.
Free post? You're getting soft! How many fucking threads do we need about blacks unable to prove their victimhood in the absence of creating their own fake hate crimes? I think we had multiple Jussie threads, at least one or two Bubba Wallace threads, and so on.

In the name of continuity of the theme, I just grabbed an existing thread and replied. The Red Red comparison is mean-spirited. :fu:
