Eddie Johnson, Chicago’s police commissioner, said he’s “angry and offended” by Jussie Smollett’s hate hoax, in which the actor claimed two supporters of President Donald Trump attacked him in Chicago on a freezing morning, threw bleach on him, and put a rope around his neck.
The truth was revealed. Smollett, apparently dissatisfied over his salary on the TV show “Empire,” hired two Nigerian brothers to stage an attack.
“I love the city of Chicago and the Chicago police department, warts and all,” Johnson said. “But this publicity stunt was a scar that Chicago didn’t earn and certainly didn’t deserve.”
Johnson even accused Smollett of sending the fake-hate letter. The police commissioner had a lot more to say. Watch the brief clip.
