Jussie Smollett Used Racism To Stage An Attack And Increase Salary

ABC7 Chicago

After the Empire star turned himself in, he admitted that he was unsatisfied with his salary.

Chicago police have officially arrested Empire star Jussie Smollett on a Class 4 felony charge for falsifying a police report. According to sources, the actor turned himself in this morning. 

The news comes a day after he was charged with federal disorderly conduct. But, the reasoning was simple. He was considered a suspect. And based on the reports, it was all tue.

But, Smollett has yet to give a statement since the arrest. Even when confronted by The Hollywood Reporter, a rep declined to comment. So, a bond hearing is scheduled for 1:30 pm in Cook County Criminal Court.  He could potentially face as much as three years in prison for “disorderly conduct in falsifying a police report.”

But, why would someone use the symbolism of the noose and homophobia as a ploy to advance? As stated by The Daily Beast,

“How could someone look at the hatred and suffering associated with that symbol and see an opportunity to manipulate that symbol to further his own public profile?”

So what do you all believe at this point? The answer could be obvious. But what do you all believe? Please comment below and stay tuned for more as this story develops!
