‘Empire’ actor Jussie Smollett surrendered to Chicago police early this morning after repeated denials that he orchestrated the racist and homophobic attack in the Streeterville area of Chicago.
Smollett has been charged with felony disorderly conduct for allegedly filing a false police report when he reported that he was attacked.
Smollett’s mug shot from earlier today:
Now, for the first time since the Empire actor was charged with a felony, Jussie Smollett is being forced to face the media and answer for his horrible made up accusations of violence, racism, and homophobia at the hands of “two white men” who yelled, “This is MAGA country!”
Watch, as the actor who recently wept during an interview with Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts, over not being believed about the heinous crime he swore took place on that sub-zero night in Chicago, is being forced to face the media after being outed as a liar and a fraud.
“Jussie, do you apologize to the LGBT community? Jussie, what do you have to say to the people of Chicago? What about your Empire castmates?” are just some of the questions that were being asked of the Empire actor by a massive mob of reporters.
Here’s another shot of Smollett, as he’s swarmed by the media, demanding he answer them about his false allegations.

It’s no wonder the media wants answers, following the blistering news conference that took place earlier today where Chicago Police Chief Eddie Johnson held nothing back in his criticism of Jussie Smollett. Johnson told the reporters, “Empire actor Jussie Smollett took advantage of the pain and anger of racism to promote his career.” The Chicago Police Chief Eddie Johnson then asked a great question, “Why would anyone, especially an African American man, use the symbolism of a noose to make false accusations?”
