Jussie Smollett Shows Up Late to court – Doesn’t End Well

Actor Jussie Smollett and his team of muscle made a grand, if belated and slightly brutal, entrance to a Chicago courthouse on Thursday for a hearing on his sentence for faking a “hate crime.”

In December, Smollett was found guilty on five counts of disorderly conduct for reporting to police that he was the victim of a “hate crime” in January 2019. Smollett, who is black and gay, claimed that he was assaulted by two men who shouted racist and anti-gay comments.

The media, which ate up Smollett’s allegations when they were first made, turned out in force to cover the disgraced actor’s first public appearance since the trial.

In one video posted to social media, Smollett is seen walking toward the courthouse through the media scrum. Newsweek’s Jackie Winchester reported that he showed up about 10 minutes late.

Bodyguards led the way, pushing here and cajoling there.

“Make a hole, make a hole,” one said. Another asked the crowd to “give us space, please.”

Then push started coming to shove.

“Hey, don’t shove me, man,” someone said.

“You just knocked a man over!” one person said.

A man with a camera can be seen on the ground in the video. Another man helped him up as the Smollett entourage moved forward without missing a step.

One more bout of pushing and shoving came as the group neared the door.

Once inside, the hearing was contentious, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Defense attorney Tina Glandian wanted Judge James Linn to order a new trial.

Glandian said the defense did not get to ask the questions it wanted during jury selection.

That drew a scathing riposte from the judge.

“You wanted me to ask the [potential jurors] ‘what kind of animal would you like to be?’” Linn said. “Or, ‘Superman or Batman, what do you prefer?’ You really think I was supposed to ask [that]?”

  1. Smollett got what he deserved for lying about a hate crime that NEVER took place. He was trying to “boost” his so-so career and it was a COMPLETE failure. I don’t car that he’s black and gay or whatever…you LIE and it will catch up to you. Don’t think the time he was given in prison nor his utter lack of common sense will help him in any way. He’s TOAST and so is his family…

  2. I hope the ni**er fa**ot gets his anal orifice stretched so bad in jail that he can’t hold his fecal matter in and has to wear Depends. I hope his prison boyfriend has him screaming every night. That arrogant bitch hasn’t learned his lesson yet. The judge gave him 150 days and he might do 70. The judge should have given him 3 years.
