Pathetic self flagellator still claims innocence, gets sacked anyway

If you look closely at the picture of Empire actor Jussie Smollett above, you may just see the eyes are starting to well up. This is a still taken from a US TV show where he tearfully explained that he would never make up something like the homophobic, Trump loving attack that he had reported.

Well, it seems like he can’t stop crying now that he has been disrobed of his cloak of victimhood. Which I guess from the point of view of his ‘Empire’ show bosses seems as good a reason as any to give the lying little prat the boot. quote.

Jussie Smollett?s character will be written off Fox?s ?Empire.?
The executive producers of the hit TV show, including Lee Daniels, issued a statement Friday morning saying they have decided to remove Smollett?s character, Jamal, from the last two episodes of the season.
While the producers claimed to ?care deeply? about Smollett, they called the allegations against him ?very disturbing and said they wanted to avoid ?further disruption? on set.

I think that is code for ‘He’s made us all look like twats for backing him so vociferously so he is dead to us’. quote.

Jussie Smollett had returned to the set of Fox?s ?Empire? on Thursday. But filming had to be put on hold because it was obvious that the actor had been heavily crying, sources told TMZ.
At one point, Smollett managed to pull himself together and address the cast and crew, according to a number of reports.

?I?m sorry I?ve put you all through this and not answered any calls. I wanted to say I?m sorry and, you know me, I would never do this to any of you, you are my family,? Smollett said. ?I swear to God, I did not do this.?

Yep keep digging fella. You just gave the whole black, gay, victim thing a massive kick in the nads but I’m sure if you keep crying someone will believe you, maybe. Although when your biggest supporters are all rushing to purge their Twitter feeds of anything connected with you, you’re probably on a hiding to nothing. Looks like your lawyer loves you though.
Smollett?s legal team said in a statement: Quote.

?Today we witnessed an organized law enforcement spectacle that has no place in the American legal system. The presumption of innocence, a bedrock in the search for justice, was trampled upon at the expense of Mr. Smollett and notably, on the eve of a Mayoral election. Mr. Smollett is a young man of impeccable character and integrity who fiercely and solemnly maintains his innocence and feels betrayed by a system that apparently wants to skip due process and proceed directly to sentencing.

Actually they have a point there, at least about the innocent until proven guilty bit. It is kind of weird that the Police Chief came out on TV to publicly berate Smollett. That’s kind of silly in my book as things like that could easily lead to an aborted trial. But I’m not the Judge that will be trying him, so I can give my honestly held opinion, and I think that Smollett has good reason to be crying.

I think I’ll leave the last word to the angry black female celebrity.
