(Tea Party 247) – The sister to famed hate hoaxer Jussie Smollett, actress Jurnee Smollet, has declared that her brother is telling the truth about the crime he claims was committed against him last year.
Remember, this is the guy who claimed that two white Trump supporters, donning MAGA hats, a rope, and some bleached, assaulted him and hurled racial and homophobic epithets at him.
On the streets of far-left Chicago.
In the middle of the night.
During a polar vortex.
To add insult to the injury of expecting any halfway reasonable person to believe this for even one second, Smollet also claimed that the two men told him that Chicago, which has been run by the Democrats for a literal century, was “MAGA country.”
This is, of course, on top of the fact that he really thought it was believable that two white homophobic Trump supporters actually watched Empire and knew who a black, gay, liberal actor was.
Well, it appears his family is fully committed to his claim, which was thoroughly debunked by the Chicago Police Department before a crooked, Soros-funded Chicago state’s attorney decided to inexplicably drop charges against the progressive Smollett.
“It’s been f*cking painful,” said told the Hollywood Reporter of the universally agreed upon narrative that her brother invented the tale. “One of the most painful things my family’s ever experienced,” she added, “to love someone as much as we love my brother, and to watch someone who you love that much go through something like this, that is so public, has been devastating.”
Last January, Jussie Smollett claimed was the victim of a racist and homophobic attack by two men in Chicago who put a rope around his neck, poured bleach on him, and yelled “This is MAGA country!” By February, Nigerian brothers and Empire extras Abimbola and Olabinjo Osundairo were arrested amid allegations that Smollett staged the attack with the two men.
Jurnee told the HR that she was “already in a very dark space for a number of reasons,” and that it took effort not to let her brother’s alleged hate hoax–I mean, totally authentic hate crime–make her “pessimistic.”
“But everyone who knows me knows that I love my brother and I believe my brother,” she said. “We are blessed to have a community of people who know him,” she added, “and know that he wouldn’t do this.”
Breitbart also notes:
The city of Chicago filed a civil lawsuit against Jussie Smollett for refusing to repay roughly $130,000 that the Chicago Police Department spent on investigating the now alleged hate crime hoax. Chicago police alleged that Smollett had staged the attack in an attempt to gain public sympathy to benefit his career.
Smollett was also arrested and indicted by a grand jury in Chicago on 16 counts of felony disorderly conduct in connection to filing a false report about an alleged hate crime against himself. The charges were later abruptly dropped in a move that sparked widespread outrage.
