    Well, Chis Watts has my vote for most despicable, but JS is coming in at a close second.

    WOW! Not for me, but I follow a lot of trials and crime. This is nothing in comparison to the evil I have heard and seen.

    This has brought an enormous amount of bad press to the show and the entire Network. 20th Century FOX TV is owned by Disney and they do not play games or roll the dice with their reputation.

    This was a despicable hate crime perpetrated against America and millions of people. Thankfully no innocent people have been hurt or worse and I pray nothing does happen.

    It's no surprise people are distancing themselves from him. Personally I believe the book will be thrown at him from the State of Illinois and then of course the Federal rabbit trap awaits.

    Joking but deep down he isn’t. It’s not funny because our nation is that divided.

    Let's focus on Smollett. He is the criminal here.

    That’s just another indicator of his narcissism. Grandiose delusions. Who does he think he is? Martin Luther King, Jr.?

    We've also been told that Jussie knew the brothers were going to Nigeria for 2 weeks (if I remember correctly it was discussed via text) so theres no way (given that we know they're currently filming the penultimate episode of empire currently and the last in this series, next week and Jussie doesn't live in Chicago otherwise) that the brothers could have provided 5 weeks of training from the supposed start date we've been given. I don't think anyone would pay 700 a week for just nutrition advice at a distance.

    TMZ

    Tee Grizzley video, he has a lot of interesting information for Mr. Kelly and Mr. Smollett. He says that his crime, home invasion, was "okay" because he needed money. But their crimes were just bad, so no one is going to be nice to them. And basically, they are going to end up buying protection from every one. Jussie doesn't look too tough.

    Mr. Grizzley's advice? Don't do crime.

    The daily DM:

    Chicago police were suspicious of Jussie Smollett from the very START | Daily Mail Online

    New investigative details have revealed the clues that made Chicago cops suspicious of Jussie Smollett's story from the very start.

    After three weeks of investigation, police publicly announced on Wednesday that they believed Smollett had hoaxed the attack that he claimed was perpetrated by white men shouting racist and anti-gay slurs.

    But details released from the Cook County State's Attorney office show that even the first officers to respond to Smollett's report of an attack on January 29 had reason to be suspicious.

    'Chicago Police Officers observed that Smollett had a rope draped around his neck,' Risa Lanier, a Cook County State's Attorney, wrote in the bond proffer.

    'This was captured on police body worn camera. Seconds later, Smollett asked police to shut off the cameras,' she continued.

    [...]

    In his initial report of the attack, Smollett also perplexed investigators by refusing to turn over his cell phone to responding officers, who wanted to verify that he had been on the phone with his manager at the time of the attack.

    The records he ultimately handed over were heavily redacted - which sources say allowed cops to zero in their investigation by focusing on the call records that he had deleted, by comparing them with records obtained through subpoena of his phone carrier.
