  1. Still weird. What self-respecting redneck would have ever heard of this guy?

  3. I have as much confidence in this as I did in the rape boat claims for Kavanaugh.

    • Maybe, if it turns out he sent the hate mail himself.

      • OBVIOUSLY he did.

        people who believe jussie will believe anything people tell them to believe.

        so all these people “supporting” jussie and decrying “racism” either:

        1. are stupid/autistic.

        OR

        2. pure evil.

        is the pope catholic?

  6. “The woman says she went to sleep and woke up at 4 AM to go to the gym, and noticed a lot of security. She says the concierge told her Jussie was attacked, and when she told him what she saw, the concierge implored her to call a detective and gave her two phone numbers. She made contact that afternoon and downloaded a detective.”

    I didn’t know you could download a detective.

  7. A neighbor claims someone was standing outside the apartment building smoking a cigarette an hour and a half before Smollet was allegedly “attacked”. I find it very unlikely that someone was standing around all night just waiting for Smollet to come out at 2am for a sandwich. Especially considering the alleged “attack” didn’t happen in front of the building. Smollet said it happened when he was coming back from Subway. Which means the guy would have had to wait around for almost two hours, follow him several blocks to Subway, wait outside while he got a sandwich then follow him halfway back home before finally “attacking” him. Aside from that being absurd, surveillance cameras would have recorded someone following Smollet and they didn’t. The police already said the surveillance video showed no one around Smollet at the time he claims to have been “attacked”. That’s the evidence that Smollet is lying about what happened.

    PS: The neighbor describes the person as a “creepy redneck who didn’t belong”. What a bitch. Can you imagine the reaction if someone had described a black guy as a “creepy coon who didn’t belong”?

  8. What took so long for this to come to light? What was the weather like that night? Was it really cold?

    It’s certainly possible, but adding that he looked like “a redneck” sounds a bit over the top if the weather was really cold, assuming he was dressed for the weather. Even without the weather, what does a “redneck” look like?

    • Yeah, I wondered about that too. It makes the description sound questionable.

      Someone has to have camo on for me to think “redneck.” The description is weirdly detailed, but was there mention of camo? I don’t think so.

  9. Really???

    I hope every white guy in Chicago is arrested and held as a “person of interest.” I would love to hear them blubbering to the media that they love ‘Empire’ and hate Trump, and please I’m not a racist….

  11. TMZ has got some really good fiction writers. That item was better than any short story I’ve read in years.

    • As I joked on another forum, I truly believe that when Tom Wolfe and Philip Roth died withing days of each other, they arrived at the same place in the Afterlife. They started talking and decided to use Earth as the characters in the next novels. Because life is starting to resemble one of their novels.

      Roth is doing this because he’s pissed for not getting a Nobel, and Wolfe is taking revenge on the human race for taking his best novel and turning it into a total dogshit movie.

      • Jussie Smollett even sounds like a name Tom Wolfe would have created for a catty gay black actor character.

  12. Jussie Smollett did not refuse to hand over phone records to cops … rather, he didn’t want to turn over his phone … sources directly connected to Jussie tell TMZ.

    The sources say cops “informally asked” Jussie if he would surrender his phone … to verify he was talking to his manager on his cell when he was attacked. We’re told he felt “uncomfortable” doing that and declined, but he was never asked about phone records. A Chicago police official had said Jussie refused to turn over both the phone and records. We’re told Smollett has already said he will provide the records, and is in the process of gathering them.

    The sources want to clear up 2 other points. First, there are reports that Jussie told cops his assailants were wearing MAGA hats. The sources underscore what TMZ first reported … that Jussie never said the men were wearing the hats. Rather, they screamed “MAGA country.”

    And the last point … there are reports that Jussie had the rope around his neck long after the incident when he was being treated at the hospital. We’re told that is not the case. He did have the rope around his neck when cops arrived at his building 42 minutes after the incident. The sources say he kept it there to “preserve the evidence.”

    • He looks stoned in this picture.

      • Probably because Smollett was stoned in that pic. That’s another possible explanation…Smollett was out at 2 AM cruising for weed and the deal went sour.

  13. “blue jeans that were too short, exposing “thick, grey hunting socks” with camel-colored dress shoes”

    Too short pants, thick socks and mismatched clothes are a hallmark of homeless people. The rope may well have been holding up his pants. This was probably someone seeking shelter from the cold.

  14. There was a white guy, but instead of a noose he had jumper cables. And instead of a MAGA hat it was a Cubs hat. And it was in Lincoln Park.
