Jussie Smollett described himself as a "piece of sh!t" if he had perpetrated a fake hate crime on himself, which he again denied during a recent podcast from June 21.
According to The Daily Wire, Smollett went to Sirius XM's "Sway's Universe" Podcast to pontificate on a new reason for why he was innocent: his strength. “If I were to do something," he said, "it would not be to look like a victim. It would be to look like, if anything, someone strong.”
Smollett, who self-identifies as an actor, director, writer, and producer called the police to his Chicago hotel in January of 2019 to report that he'd been the victim of a hate crime.
He described that two white men had assaulted him while he was on his way back to the hotel after getting a Subway sandwich. The men allegedly wrapped a noose around his neck and poured an unknown substance on him all the while yelling that heavily Democrat Chicago was 'MAGA Country' amidst other racist and homophobic slurs.
Police immediately noticed some discrepancies in his story, such as Smollet's ability to keep his Subway order in the pristine condition the Sandwich Artist made it in. After some elementary investigation Smollett's story fell apart and it was revealed he'd paid two Nigerian brother's to help him stage the hoax. He had met the brothers at the gym and paid them $35,000 via check to help with the crime.
Despite a mountain of evidence, Smollett always maintained his innocence, even after he was found guilty of disorderly conduct in 2021. Smollett's histrionic response to the verdict included declarations that he was "not suicidal" and "If I did this, it means that I stuck my fist in the fears of black Americans in this country for over 400 years and the fears of the LGBTQ."
The actor, writer, director managed to stick to the script during his podcast appearance and said almost word-for-word, "If I had done something like this, it would mean that I stuck my fist in the pain of black Americans in this country for over 400 years. It would mean that I stuck my fist in the fears of the LGBTQ community all over the world."
Smollett received a 150-day sentence but only served six days in jail after his lawyer said he should be out on bond pending his appeal. The actor, who claimed he was jailed only because he was black, was a brief and fleeting hero of Democratic ideologues who were satiated by his tale of American racism.
In a tweet that is still live on Vice President Kamala Harris' Twitter, she writes, "@JussieSmollett is one of the kindest, most gentle human beings I know. I’m praying for his quick recovery. This was an attempted modern day lynching. No one should have to fear for their life because of their sexuality or color of their skin. We must confront this hate."
