Jussie Smollett charged with planning alleged homophobic, racist attack himself

Washington Correspondent

An American TV star who tearfully claimed to be the victim of a vicious racist and homophobic attack, has now been charged with orchestrating it all himself. In a scathing press conference, Chicago police claimed Jussie Smollett concocted the story to get attention and because ‘he was dissatisfied with his salary.’  And President Trump said the actor had “insulted millions with his racist and dangerous comments”. Jussie Smollett has denied playing a role in the attack and is due to appear in court shortly.
