jussie smollett shows us how being black and gay does pay off

too soon?

*before i start,
can i font how much i appreciate the foxhole?
when a story breaks,
i get the alerts from you guys.
from the bottom of my font,
i am extremely grateful.

so jussie smollett has much to celebrate about.
he might even be planning his “told ya so” party for the weekend.
as you know,
he has been dragged through the mud about his alleged hate crime,
even while holding on tight to his alleged innocence.
in a twist that made me swallow my banana whole,
all of the charges against him were dropped early today.
not only that,
his record was expunged like nothing happened.
( x read more here )
he was free to go with some community service under his belt.

yup.
just like that.
i know you’ve been anticipating to read my thoughts

records sealed.
everything dropped.
he already did some charity work already ( x according to tmz).
in my head,
there are definitely a lot of moving parts involved.
we may never know the truth and the forces that be want this gone.
even though the story from is still shifty af,
i’m glad there is an end to this long drawn out drama.
it was making no sense at every twist and turn.
jussie cannot feel any kind of way if folks questioned his story.
if any random civilian was to recount that story on the news,
we would look at them like they were insane.

Am I wrong?

even though jussie has been cleared,
the court of public opinion has still found him guilty.
i don’t think that will change anytime soon.
his career will have a huge dent in it,
which will bring many side eyes to follow him for life.
my hope is he’ll sit down for a while and let the rain water dry.
by next season of “empire” rolls around,
folks will have moved on to whatever scandal hits next.

the only good thing about this story is how angry the racist jackals are.
they are fuming.
that brings me joy.
the trump-ers/ettes are currently parched from all their anger.
i don’t see this outrage when their white counterparts get away with murder.
let jussie rock.

  1. This whole story is so damn bizarre! Are the Nigerian brothers going to be charged? I thought Chicago P.D had all of this evidence against Jussie?

  2. Listen I know he’s guilty but a huge part of me is soooo happy about this!!! Christopher Milan is somewhere punching the air right now! the gays on ig are going in on him but he blocked me so can’t see most of his reactions

      1. If that musty queen Chicago Christopher (he’s Chicagoan not from Milan) don’t sit down somewhere! He’s been itching for attention since this scandal first broke in January! He claimed that Jussie “stopped his bag” and stopped him from getting opportunities and has been holding this bizarre vendetta against him for the longest. I dragged him too, but it was under the shaderoom comments so he didn’t block me because 1000+ others responded to his comment thread dragging him.

        Stick to porn Milan, nothing of substance ever leaves your mouth. “Catching” things INTO your mouth is more up your speed sis!

    1. Sis… he blocked me too.i blocked him first though. And made it known. That’s when he blocked me. His annoying face always be commenting in TSR.

    2. He musta took his IG down, bc I cant find it. Im quite sure im not block bc I never go to his damn page or talk about his ass. lol. Hell, I just wanted to “investigate” bc you said that you were blocked.

  3. So 16 felony charges just miraculously dropped and his record is cleared and sealed. Hmm okay 🙄….

    It changes nothing though. In fact, it may make matters worse for Jussie’s public perception. He will now be seen as someone who’s gotten away with a crime. Almost how OJ Simpson will always be seen as guilty of murder. He has shown one ounce of contrition nor has he apologized to the people of Chicago, instead he’s still running around claiming he’s a victim of a racist homophobic attack by Trump supporters.

    He’s a narcissist sociopath.

  4. Anyone who is familiar with CPD knows they are a corrupt POS. That mayor is the worst. I suspect that what really happened is that the feds got involved, and said NO..U don’t have evidence to charge him.I also wonder if the prosecution knew thst the charges were a load of ish and refused to go along with their wishes because it was a set up. That mayor is a dog, I put nothing past him. The prosecutors stood their ground not wanting to lie, get caught so they said no.
    There’s no way to convince me that they would completely drop those charges like thst. Something happened and they were forced to. maybe even thumped up charges, fake narrative and someone threatened to go public, so they backed down.

  5. I honestly believe he lied and because he knew people with some pull he got off. He forfeited his $10k bond and already did two days of community service so I guess that’s all the punishment he’s going to get. Hopefully this won’t effect his career and he can go about his life.

  6. So my position during this entire shit show has been to just wait and let things play out. Rather than pointing fingers at Jussie or whoever else was or wasn’t involved. While he may have in fact been guilty, the way info was spilt at every turn was odd to me. The Chicago PD was having a media field day with this and it backfired. Come on…. 16 COUNTS!!! *eye roll* What’s more unfortunate is how quickly our communities (black, brown, and gay) turned our backs on him and some found joy in slandering him. He fucked up, without a doubt and the effects of it are definitely something to discuss. However, it’s so disheartening how we vilify our own even when exhoberated, instead of those who find pleasure In seeing us tear each other down. The “Gotcha Bitch!” mentality amongst us will forever be our biggest hurdle.

  7. Well guys I’m happy for him white rich stars get off all the time so good for him he can leave empire do music his character was getting very lame

  8. And it all was here say no hard proof he may be telling the truth I say release a sex tape jessy then drop a album with hot rap artist then tour vet get rise

  9. So I said he’d get those charges dropped and all my shady ass co-workers need to pay up. I knew he was gonna get off. This is what I probably assumed earlier, a setup or a publopubl stunt. He may have a dent in the public eye but that won’t hurt the Empire viewership anymore than it has been declining.

    Things I fond funny…The woke naysayers who said said blacks gotgset back just got a clapback in the face and they still continue to naysay…Go figure.

    Though I can’t say he’s lying or not…a part of me is reminded back to my earlier post where I said it sounded like a script from a scrapped episode of Empire.

    Then again, this did serve its purpose also… because it caused a distraction while other serious things were happening…

    Who knows what goes on behind closed doors these days?

      1. Ain’t no telling but I know things looking good now…don’t let any real foul play boomerang back on him. If Empire ta ks, what is he going to do? Sing music? He better get with Patrick Ian Polk and get Noah:s Arc Season III greenlit.

  10. I have a feeling Jussie won’t be pushing so hard for his “attackers” to be brought to justice smh.

    The fact the details of the case are sealed definitely gives me pause. My guess is this was a two way deal where both parties get to save face. He can’t sue the CPD and he gets to keep denying to the media and probably lying in future interviews because no one can see the records.

    He’s just going to go back into the background seeing as how no one buys his music and Empire might have two seasons left before its a wrap, if that.

    1. Agreed. Also, yall know the powers that be at FOX studios aren’t going to let their golden goose get away that easily. All them Fox studio executives and powerful people behind him could have easily made a few phone calls, greased the right palms, pay off the right folks and make this whole thing go away. They invested lots of money into the show Empire, they want a return on investment. At the end of the day,a wise sage once said, “Cash Rules Everything Around Me, CREAM, get the money, dollar, dollar bills, yall.”

  11. The simple truth is there were leaks from the police from the beginning & then that fat ass police cheif held a press conference & took is ass to GMA the next morning, there is no way Jussie would’ve gotten a fair trial.

  12. So basically the prosecutor’s office ain’t handle their business correctly and they were about to get exposed on a technicality, so they cut a deal with Smollet’s legal team for $10,000 fine and community service for all of this to go away to cover everybody’s ass and a win-win for all involved, hence why the case is sealed. This doesn’t prove innocence or guilt. All it proves is that the Chicago PD screwed up. We may never know the truth and Im sure some of the powers that be prefer it stay that way.

    In any case, I’m glad this whole soap opera is over and hopefully, there’s no more twists and turns to come but judging by all the flip-flopping and shenanigans that have been going on, I would not be surprised.

    Anyways, congrats on getting off on a technicality Jussie! Hopefully you’ll keep a low profile and don’t go on a publicity tour gloating about being the “gay Tupac”.

  13. I figured he would beat the charges but I wasn’t sure how. That the vile CPD and that clown car police chief are having to eat crow is almost worth it, though the real gift is all the MAGAts folks now screaming and crying over something they had people claiming was worse that WMDs or mass murders or, wait for it, obstruction of justice. It’s poetic justice that the prosecutor who engineered giving Jussie this “GO” pass is named…Magats!

    Anyways, if 45 and his corrupt crew can get off conspiring with Russia in plain sight and all those rich ass bankers who blew up the US and global economy in 2007 and 2008 can walk off scot free, I’m not about to trip over Jussie’s little hot mess of a hoax, or whatever it was. I hope the muscle wolves get off the hot seat too. Then kiss, make up, and share the celebration with the rest of us.

  14. It amazes me to Rass how quick Black people are to doubt, throw each other under the bus. Even when the bearer of the news is someone that doesn’t have their interest at heart. We are one set of a fucked up people…Divide n rule, we’ve bought it line n sinker.

    1. Y’all make me sick with this “blacks going against blacks” shit. Please tell me where this story made any bit of sense. He lied and got away with it. Simple. In order for a story to be believed, the order of events have to make logical sense, irrespective of the person’s race or orientation. I’m not automatically going to believe you because you’re gay or black. Both of those communities are capable of lying like everyone else. The story got even worse and I can almost guarantee that there was corruption or mishandling of the case by the prosecutors and CPD. Doesn’t change the fact that he admitted to the crime and gave motive. Or did he admit all of that under duress?

      16 charges (FEDERAL) and they are gone just like that? Damn Kamala sis, Olivia taught her well!

    1. And that was some finesse with all the evidence pointing at my man & he ends up with his record wiped clean. Jussie chile, you betta werqqqqqq!

"off topic" and other nonsense gets sent to my spam folder. other than that, play nice and let's discuss!
