Jussie Smollett

Americans the nation over are furious in regard to the Jussie Smollett case, but nowhere is the fury more focused than in the Windy City.

Smollett, whose role on the television program Empire allowed him to bond with Chicago in a myriad of ways, is considered a persona non grata throughout much of the city today.  His hoaxed hate crime, and shady subsequent skating away from it, has angered Americans of all political stripes…including lawmakers.

One legislator in Chicago has had enough.

The prosecutors involved in the case, along with the Chicago Police department do believe that Jussie Smollett was not innocent in the case of the phony hate crime, and provided what amounted to a series of unacceptable excuses for their decision to let the actor off the hook.

This has led to a number of massive outcries against Smollett, the show Empire, and the legal team that concocted this out for Smollett.

Worse still; Smollett’s lawyers aren’t done making a ruckus, as they are now demanding an “apology” from the Chicago Police and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel over their continued pursuance of the case.

Smollett is accused, with evidence, of having paid two Empire extras to stage a fake hate crime against the actor, for the simple purpose of raising Smollett’s personal profile, thereby allowing him to demand a raise for his work.

Actress Roseanne Barr Considering A Lawsuit Against ABC For Firing Her Over Controversial Tweet

Published

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,…

‘Aquaman’ Jason Momoa Tells Chris Pratt Not To Use Plastic Water Bottles; Pratt Responds With ‘You’re Completely Right.’

Published

Liberal Hollywood actors have a tendency to think more highly of themselves than they ought, and nothing points out this inflated ego than one crusader for a cause scolding a fellow actor for doing something that violates their delicate belief system. Which is precisely what happened when “Aquaman” star Jason Momoa took a swipe at his colleague, megastar Chris Pratt for using a plastic water bottle in a post he put up on social media. Here’s more from Daily Wire: Thankfully, however, Pratt diffused the situation with a gracious response, and Momoa followed that with a follow-up post calling Pratt an “inspiration.” “Bro [I] love [you] but [what the f***] on the water bottle,” Momoa complained in the comment section. “No single use plastic. [C]ome on.” The purpose of Pratt’s post was part of a collaboration with Amazon: “You’re probably wondering why I’m standing here, low key flexing, gazing into the distance… well, turns out I’m teaming up with [Amazon] to show you guys everything I use for my workouts, keeping active, and all that fun stuff to get you prepped for 2020,” the movie star captioned the gym photo.   View this post on Instagram   You’re probably wondering why I’m standing here, low key flexing, gazing into the distance… well, turns out I’m teaming up with @amazon to show you guys everything I use for my workouts, keeping active, and all that fun stuff to get you prepped for 2020. #FoundItOnAmazon #Amazon #Ad http://www.amazon.com/chrispratt A post shared by chris pratt (@prattprattpratt) on Dec 3, 2019 at 8:46am PST Pratt responded with, “Aquaman!
