The legal team of disgraced actor Jussie Smollett is trying their best to ensure their client doesn’t have to reimburse the city for expenses related to the cost of investigating an alleged hate crime that the vast majority of the evidence points to him faking.
The latest reasoning being employed in attempting to justify such a move is utter ridiculousness. According to the team of lawyers, Smollett shouldn’t have to reimburse the city because he had no idea they would investigate the incident so thoroughly.
You can’t make this stuff up, folks.

Smollett attorney William J. Quinlan said in a motion he filed that asking Smollett to pay the fees was “ridiculous and a stretch.”
“The filing of a police report, in and of itself, does not necessitate a sprawling investigation nor does it, as a practical matter, usually result in an investigation as extensive as the one the CPD chose to undertake in this case,” the motion read, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
Quinlan also said Smollett had “no control” over the scope of the police investigation into his claims. He also alleged that the city’s lawsuit was only filed because former Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel was frustrated with “the state’s attorney” for “dismissing the charges.”
This isn’t Smollett’s first attempt at getting out of paying the reimbursement owed to the city of Chicago. Last month, his attorneys tried arguing that the alleged hate crime against Smollett really did happen and that he had not lied about the incident.
Obviously that didn’t work, something which should be totally obvious after looking at the evidence.
How dumb are these attorneys? Do they really think such lame reasoning will actually convince authorities to drop the reimbursement? That’s rather insulting, don’t you think?
At the end of the day, Smollett is accountable for his own actions and his actions have consequences. His fabrication of events led to the city spending lots of money in resources to investigate the incident, resources that could’ve been used elsewhere to help stop actual crimes.
Smollett needs to take responsibility for himself and just pay the reimbursement already.
Actress Roseanne Barr Considering A Lawsuit Against ABC For Firing Her Over Controversial Tweet
Actress Roseanne Barr, who has been largely silent over the last couple of years since being fired from ABC in 2018 over a controversial tweet she posted comparing former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett to characters from the film Planet of the Apes. Yeah. That was a very, very poor choice of words. There’s little argument about that. However, Barr did explain that it wasn’t meant as a racial slur at all and she should have been granted the benefit of the doubt. Well, Barr is now considering a lawsuit against ABC for giving her the boot. The actress appeared on an episode of “Quarantined With Norm MacDonald” on Sunday on the former Saturday Night Live alum’s YouTube channel where she discussed the matter. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “I have the time now to research and come up with the perfect lawsuit,” she said, adding, “The lawsuit I’m going to wage against Hollywood.” She told MacDonald in the laid-back interview that she plans to “f— over everybody in the f—ing world over there.” Barr was fired from the network after tweeting, “muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj,” in response to another user’s claim that suggested Jarrett helped former President Barack Obama hide secrets. Barr’s apology for the tweet fell on deaf ears as the network fired her and then took the show she helped create and turned it into something else entirely, killing off her main character despite the fact the show was a huge hit with conservative audiences. https://youtu.be/4KO_gvrf5ZA Roseanne Barr has always been a controversial figure in popular culture so it’s not surprising to see her make out there statements. But in today’s PC climate, you’re not allowed to truly speak your mind because everyone is trying to avoid offending each other. Thus,…
Cancel Culture Kills The Beer Money Guy
The Des Moines Register and Anheuser Busch took hypocrisy to new heights.
On Saturday September 14th the world met an average guy named Carson King. Carson was attending the in-state rivalry college football game between the University of Iowa Hawkeyes and the Iowa State Cyclones known as the Cy-Hawk game. The game was nationally televised on ESPN, and Mr. King made a now famous paper sign asking for “Beer Money”. He then made his way to the background of the cameras and as they say the rest is history…sort of. His simple sign read, Busch Light Supply Needs Replenished – Venmo – Carson-King-25 and the money began pouring in. After it reached several hundred dollars Carson decided to give it all to charity rather fund a huge drunken party with it. Good for you Carson King. He decided to donate the money to Stead Children’s Hospital in Iowa City. With that bit of information, the internet went into a viral frenzy. The money poured in. Both Venmo and Anheuser Busch, who makes Busch Light, said they would match whatever was pledged to the Carson King Venmo account. The numbers skyrocketed. Carson King was an instant celebrity in Iowa and nationwide. He was doing interviews all over the place! They flew him to New York and all the major media outlets ran positive stories on Carson’s generosity. Iowa NICE was cool! Iowa Nice is super cool actually, but at the Cy-Hawk game it’s kinda put on pause! I live in Iowa and I am a lifelong Hawkeye. I also have a son who is going to Iowa State so I know first hand the rivalry between these two schools. It can get ugly at this in state game, just ask the Hawkeye Marching Band. Watching our state come together around Carson King and Busch Light beer, who some call Busch Latte, because Iowan’s…
