Empire actor Jussie Smollett, who rose to fame for perpetrating a disgusting hate crime hoax in 2019, has finally been sentenced to prison in a move that finally delivers justice for former President Donald Trump.
Smollett claimed that he had been attacked by two men who shouted racial slurs at Smollett and beat him as they allegedly shouted, “This is MAGA country.”
Smollett’s story of being attacked by vicious Trump supporters wearing MAGA hats was immediately swallowed by the mainstream media that was eager to demonize the President and his loyal supporters.
Of course, things quickly fell apart, and Smollett was exposed as a disgusting liar seeking fame. Cook County Judge James slammed Smollett as “profoundly arrogant, selfish and narcissistic,” for his fake story.
Now Smollett will serve 150 days in jail and 30 months of probation for his crimes. Smollett will also be forced to pay thousands in restitution alongside a massive fine.
While Smollett was rightly sentenced to jail, many are questioning of Smollett’s sentence was too lenient. Smollett’s story inflamed racial tensions in the United States, and the damage he did was devastating and irreversible.
