You haven’t been keeping up with the story?

The walls are caving in. Even the writers are rewriting the show and cutting his scenes.

I could care less about anyone’s sexual identity. I always thought he was a talented singer, decent actor. I watched the show for a few seasons, it’s gotten long in the tooth for me but my issue with this whole situation was crying wolf and using his platform to demonize “trump maga white conservatives etc.”

This is the type of shyt that people need to be held to account for. It fans the flames of division and hurts us as a nation and as human beings.

We need to be able to disagree without disintegrating. Some people ain’t trying to hear that though. Philosophy and ancient empires were built on arguments and civil discourse. Seems like social media and celebrity culture is hellbent on disregarding that.

i just saw he's getting charged with a felony. well damn...

i dont like trump at all but this is a dumb way to try to make him and his supporters look bad. smh

As Americans you have the right to dislike Trump. I didn’t like Obama on an ideological level, that’s our rights as Americans. What JS did was plain dumb.

And what some anonymous moderator did by taking my “ inflammatory” thread and merging it here was just as dumb. I do t like censorship and someone is having cramps and felt the thread was going to get to much attention and anger so they just decided to put it here.

Not mad. Just bringing attention to what I’ve been dealing with for a decade plus.

Maybe he just wants to be in screenwriting and directing to go with his acting. :lol:

Triple threat kind of thing. Written by, Directed by, AND Starring ...(drum roll) ... Jussie Smullett

For those that don’t know the story:

Jussie is an actor that plays in the TV show “Empire”.

A few weeks ago a report came out that Jussie was jumped and beaten by two men wearing MAGA hats and throwing both racial and homophobic slurs. It was also reported that they threw bleach and tied a noose around Jussie’s neck. This all supposedly happened at 2am in sub zero Chicago...

I know nothing of Smollett, but my opinion is that ANYONE falsely reporting a crime (especially a hate crime), and proven guilty should not only serve some time but also have to pony up for some of the costs of the investigation, how much depending on their resources.

Just hope this even, false or true, doesn’t incite more racially motivated attacks. Last thing this country needs.

Locking as this is under discussion in the Community Thread (under "Announcements"). Board had become a lil' OT heavy so we're trying to utilize that thread more. But yes, talk about that and other stuffs there and we'll eventually merge these posts there once folks have had a chance to see this.

Not sure if that’s a good thing

Bwhahahaha, would love to be a fly on the wall when he gets back home to the wife. Guess he’ll be buying the million dollar diamond ring for her like Kobe did when he sodomized the 18 year old Denver hotel maid.
