CHICAGO – Jussie Smollett, actor in the Fox drama series Empire, plans to sue the City of Chicago for $250 million claiming damages to his reputation and emotional well-being caused by the false charges placed against him by the city.
“This is how gay black men are treated in America. They wanted to throw me in jail. This would have never happened to me if I were white. I’m going to make sure Chicago pays for how they embarrassed me,” said Smollett in an exclusive interview with Mendaco Press.
