take it from me,
it’s hard to make friends in the industry or even at regular jobs.
you think you meet someone(s) who has your back and survey says:
jussie smollett and don lemon appeared to be friends in the industry.
two black gays trying to build a bridge with each other amongst this sea of industry straights.
jussie decided to throw don under the bus during his trial.
he admitted don was allegedly tipping him off about what the police were doing.
( x see article here )
when jussie was found guilty yesterday,
you know the type of energy don was on during his show on cnn…
Don Lemon turned on his old pal Jussie Smollett hours after his conviction for faking a hate crime – but continued to avoid claims he’d offered the actor inside information about the police probe into his claims.
Speaking hours after Smollett was convicted of faking a racist and homophobic hate crime, Lemon said: ‘He had to make up too many lies as to why he didn’t want to do certain things,’ said Lemon on Thursday night.
‘To cover. Like another lie – and I guess he got caught up in that because he took the stand himself.
‘He got angry with the prosecutor as the prosecutor poked holes in his story – calling the only other witnesses liars.’
Lemon also blasted Smollett for making it harder for real victims of hate attacks to be taken seriously.
And he listened intently while his legal analyst Joey Jackson called for Smollett to face jail
Asked by Lemon what he thought of the verdict, Jackson said: ‘I think it’s the proper result.’
don was like:
that don did what he is being accused of.
he might have been trying to look out for jussie.
now jussie got him roped up in this shit trying to save his own ass.
jussie went on that stand and outed people’s alleged sexuality,
threw past friends and associates under the bus,
and was so insufferable while doing all of this.
he didn’t come off likable and his antics were too much.
in my opinion,
he was coming off ruthless and would do/say anything to make sure he came out on top.
those types of people make me nervous.
now he wants an appeal his guilty verdict:
so let’s font in his appeal,
he is found innocent,
the court of public opinion doesn’t seem to have changed its mind.
i think our “gay tupac” needs to go dark,
rebuild his reputation,
release “b-boy blues”,
work quietly behind the scenes on various projects,
and let this incident be forgotten in time.
Can we do a reboot of “One Night in Chicago: The Jussie Smollett Story”?
i hope not.
lowkey: jussie posted this on his ig after he was found guilty…
