After Empire actor Jussie Smollett presented his outlandish claims that he was attacked by two Trump supporters who wrapped a noose around his neck and poured bleach on his face, Hollywood Celebrities wasted no time in blaming President Trump and his supporters for the so called “attack.”
Recent revelations show that this “attack” wasn’t exactly how Smollett explained it to be. Check out what CNN’s Shimon Prokupecz posted on Twitter.
CNN: Chicago Police believe Jussie Smollett paid two men to orchestrate the assault.
The sources tell CNN that the two men are now cooperating fully with law enforcement.

Chicago police reported to CNN that they believed Smollett paid two men to stage the attack on him.
Smollett had previously claimed that at 2am in downtown Chicago, he was attacked by two men, had a rope wrapped around his neck, and chemicals thrown on him and claimed he was called racial and homophobic slurs. He also said that the attackers yelled “This is MAGA country!” at him.
To the common American citizen, this claim seems quite questionable and irrational, but to Hollywood Democrats, it sounded completely plausible.
Check out what the radical Left celebrities had to say.
Empire creator Lee Daniels said, “We have to love each other regardless of what sexual orientation we are because it shows we are united on a united front and no racist fuck can come in and do the things that they did to you.”
“Hold your head up, Jussie. I’m with you. I’ll be there in a minute. It’s just another fucking day in America,” he said on Instagram.
Singer Cher, had some wild comments as well. She seems to be getting more and more mentally unstable by the day.

Katy Perry was gullible enough to believe the claims as well. Here is what she had to say.

Olivia Munn, with zero evidence said that “Jussie Smollett was violently attacked by two white men who poured bleach on him and put a noose around his neck. He was targeted for being black and for being gay.”
Jussie Smollett was violently attacked by two white men who poured bleach on him and put a noose around his neck. He was targeted for being black and for being gay. THIS is why we have to have zero tolerance against homophobia and racism. Jussie’s life matters.

Actor Billy Eichner said that he wanted Trump and his supporters to “burn in hell” even though there was no evidence at the time to support Smollett’s claims.
Heartbroken and furious reading about the attack on @JussieSmollett. I want Trump and all MAGA lunatics to burn in Hell.

Rosie O’Donnell gave the middle finger to Trump and his supporters in a now deleted tweet.
Rob Reiner took to Twitter and said, “The horrific attack on Jussie Smollett has no place in a decent human loving society. Homophobia existed before Trump, but there is no question that since he has injected his hatred into the American bloodstream, we are less decent, less human,& less loving. No intolerance! No DT!”
It’s sad how these celebrities actually believed the story in the first place!

Director Barry Jenkins asked Trump supporters, “This is what all that hateful mongering has wrought. Are you PROUD???”
The only hateful mongering here is coming from the Left, lead by Smollett who wants to demonize Trump supporters.
Thinking of Jussie. Saddened. Heartbroken. Angry. ALL of it. Wouldn’t matter that he is the kindest soul. But he IS the kindest soul. And this is FUCKED. This is what all that hateful mongering has wrought. Are you PROUD???

Actress Beth Behrs said:
for the love of god, how how how can people still be supporting the “president” ? I beg of you . please can we put aside politics and fight together to overcome disgustingly vile hate?
Molly Ringwald joined in and blamed all Trump supporters for the “attack.”
I’m horrified by the vicious attack on @JussieSmollett Not surprised that the cowards in masks yelled “This is MAGA country.” Our country deserves better than the kind of morally bankrupt people who have taken our democracy hostage and condone hate crimes. Sending love to Jussie.
Check out some more attacks from other celebrities below.
Pansexual pop star @JanelleMonae said (in a deleted post) that it is “proof” that "it is still a risk daily to be a BLACK, OUT and PROUD human being.” You can see the FBI statistics on hate crimes here. You tell me how statistically significant it is: https://t.co/G0Us5aJqjQ pic.twitter.com/YJydsBRFXc

This makes me sick. @JussieSmollett we are all with you today my friend. Sending unlimited love your way. My heart breaks for you and a country where this kind of this can still happen on a regular basis. https://t.co/r3un9sBsWT

As a fellow #StonewallAmbassador, my heart goes out to @JussieSmollett. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, which launched the LGBTQ civil rights movement. This horrific incident underscores the struggle we still face. Thank you Jussie for your courage. https://t.co/RFnbu2dd2P

Here is what Bill Prady said.
The horrific story of Jussie Smollet makes this important point:
While some are whipping up tales of danger coming over the border, the real and documented danger to America is coming from home-grown right-wing racist, homophobic and antisemitic movements.
Airhead socialist star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was dumb enough to believe the Smollett’s claims as well. No surprise there!
Non-binary “they/them” actor @NicoTortorella said the “red hat is the white hood. No ifs ands or buts. If you wear it, you attacked Jussie.” Activists want to expand definition of violence to include expressions of speech, clothing—and thought. https://t.co/vYaXPPdqQP pic.twitter.com/9vJk5dX73W

Not only is it alarming that far Left celebrities were dumb enough to believe Smollett’s outlandish claims, but it’s also sad how they took the opportunity to blame innocent Trump supporters for something that didn’t even happen.
