Jesse Jackson: Jussie didn’t do nothing

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.

Jussie Smollett to sue Chicago for millions

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.
