CHICAGO – Rev. Jesse Jackson asserted yesterday that Jussie Smollett is innocent of the hate crime hoax allegations and says the outrage surrounding his case is fake news.
“People need to stop harassing Jussie. Ya’ll just want to hate on him because he’s a gay black man. Nobody cares that his attackers are still out there. Don’t forget, he’s the victim here. Jussie didn’t do nothing,” said Jackson in an exclusive interview with Mendaco Press.
