Chicago Police issued a scathing rebuke of all things Jussie Smollett as they officially charged him with a felony.
He faces up to three years in jail and he will most likely get the maximum for his heinous crimes.
Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said that Smollet “took advantage of the pain and anger of racism to promote his career.”
“…this publicity stunt was a scar that Chicago didn’t earn and certainly didn’t deserve” before demanding that Smollet “apologize to this city that he smeared.”
“Celebrities, news commentators, and even presidential candidates weighed in on something that was choreographed by an actor,” he said shaking with anger.
“I’m left hanging my head and asking why,” he added before labeling Smollett’s actions as a “slap in the face” to Chicagoans.
Enter President Trump. Who issued a blistering rebuke to Smollet and strongly stood up for his supporters.
“Jussie Smollett – what about MAGA and the tens of millions of people you insulted with your racist and dangerous comments!? #MAGA,” Trump tweeted.
The guy was a dumb crook as well – he paid his accomplices by check. From TMZ: Jussie Smollett has just been indicted for a felony … filing a false police report, and the stakes are 3 years in prison.
A Cook County Grand Jury handed down the indictment late Wednesday, after grand jurors heard testimonies and evaluated evidence.

We’re told Ola and Abel Osundairo — the 2 brothers — told Grand Jurors they staged the so-called “attack” at Jussie’s behest and even got paid for it. The brothers were caught on camera buying a bunch of supplies before the incident … including ski masks, gloves, bandanas, sunglasses and red hats.
Don’t forget, Jussie is a repeat offender. From NBC:
As the police investigation into the alleged attack against “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett continues, it was revealed Tuesday that in 2007 Smollett pleaded no contest to DUI, driving without a license and providing false information to law enforcement, the L.A. City Attorney’s office confirmed to NBC News.
Smollett, now 36, was sentenced to two years probation and a choice of a fine or jail in the 2007 case, an L.A. City Attorney’s spokesman told NBC News.
The case is coming to light as Chicago police investigate whether Smollett made up a story about being the victim of a racially, motivated hate crime. Chicago police have requested LAPD provide them information about the 2007 arrest, according to multiple law enforcement sources familiar the investigation.
