Jussie Smollett turns himself into Chicago police; arrested on charges of filing a false police report
According to Fox News “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett in the “custody of detectives” Thursday morning, Chicago police Chief Communications Officer Anthony Guglielmi said. This news is alarming and very non surprising under the circumstances and the talk about the alledged attack that has been going on since Super Bowl weekend.
Several celebrities and media outlets have expressed through their social media and articles to explain their disdain for Jussie’s whole role in this cluster****. The New York Post has featured Jussie Smollett on the cover with the title LIAR in bold print. How does Jussie recover from this? What can happen at this point to change the minds of America. Did Jussie actually help the LGBTQ Community and all he was working towards. Will the world be forgiving towards Jussie in a plan he allegedly concocted that simply just did NOT pan out?
You know what the Producer’s Channel TV is wondering? Why has there not been one statement from his Publicist? Could it be because he didn’t have one? This just goes back to proving that as a celebrity, entertainer and especially when you are a Public Figure you absolutely have to keep a great team under your belt. A great publicist would have bridged the gap between the whole plan and what Smollett was looking to accomplish and definitely would have found a better way to spin the results he was looking for without involving interns. Perhaps Smollett could have listened to the words of celebrity blogger Q aka Ms Funky Dineva Ross and rallied up his celebrity friends to push Smollett’s original narrative.
“we refuse to apologize for reacting emotionally to a report of anti-LGBTQ violence”
So. Jussie Smollett might have faked a racist, homophobic assault. That’s cool. I’m cool with that. I’m sure we’re all cool with that, no one’s bothered.
Of course people are bothered. Jesus, how could anyone not be? Look, I’m not going to decide right now if it really was faked because at this point, it won’t even matter. Now that the idea that he faked it has entered the discourse, people who want to believe it was staged are — no matter the outcome — going to see it the way they want to and never change their minds. The truth is, whatever happened doesn’t change anything about being LGBTQ in America. I’ll let the folks who care more about celebrity drama deal with Smollett’s problem; I’m more concerned about what people think it means.
Other media outlets were disappointed about the lack of attention real violent attacks and murders of Black trans women have gotten due to the media occupying all their focus on Smollett and the alledged attack. What we find interesting is now the focus is on the “falsification of a police report.” Nobody is even really stating what Smollett’s message was that he was orginally trying to get across. The entire focus is that the Smollett name and Brand will for the longest be affiliated with being a Liar until proven otherwise.
For the sake of Smollett and his reputation and sanity we at the producer’s channel tv would like to see Smollett’s attorney and team produce some type of evidence to prove all the naysayers wrong. The worst court room victim could sit is the court of Public Opinion.
