That has nothing to do with what I said. People invested in this situation, today, are largely vengeful white people. It’s not an inaccurate characterization, look at this topic on twitter.
Again, I'm not absolving Jussie of his wrongdoing, nor am I saying that he shouldn't face punishment, but I will still also say that my co-workers are being pieces of shit for living in a world where murderous, psychopathic Navy Seals are given pardons by the highest office in the land, and yet treat the Jussie Smollet case as if it is the greatest injustice to ever exist on American shores.
Lol now see....I would be ok with a documentary about this whole incident if only it was a cleverly written comedy satire of the whole situation.
He fucked up so badly with this bullshit.
People like Rush Limbaugh, Ben Shapiro, etc...would bring this up MONTHS after the fact apropos of nothing.
This. If some white dude had made up shit about getting attacked by MAGAs we'd barely remember. Hell even backwards B lady didn't get level of shit, she just got drug in the media afair
Mayor Rahm Emmanuel did not try to cover this up as far as I know. Just the opposite. Kim Foxx went from Obama endorsed rising political star to career now dead in the water/soon to be out of a job because of her lying and cover up though. Why she chose this hill to die on, not sure anyone will ever know.
I have never in all my days seen white people get as mad as they were about Jussie Smollett
I read it. You said the mayor, lawyers and the city were involved in a coverup. I just thought you would have had something more to offer about it, because I remember the former mayor being furious and the city going after him over the investigative costs.
It'll come up in the investigation, assuming that isn't corrupt as well.
We literally live in an attention economy now. There's nothing strange about it at all.
The people who are vocally vengeful really have nothing to do with him being held accountable for his actions. In fact you are probably right that a large portion fit that narrative however he was wrong to do what he did and everyone knows that. And I think I’ll steer clear of any twitter related reactions to the topic. Now exactly a great place to find real truth.
He didn’t make a fool out of them though. Quite the opposite, which is why they could just let it go and move on to important shit instead. Dude killed his own career in the process.
Yeah seriously.Again, I'm not absolving Jussie of his wrongdoing, nor am I saying that he shouldn't face punishment, but I will still also say that my co-workers are being pieces of shit for living in a world where murderous, psychopathic Navy Seals are given pardons by the highest office in the land, and yet treat the Jussie Smollet case as if it is the greatest injustice to ever exist on American shores.
You're right, not a fool. My bad. The dude is trash, not denying it and he should get the book thrown at him.
You're right about the attention economy but at some point the person usually is satisfied with the attention they've already gotten and admits their fuck up especially when faced with criminal charges. It's very uncommon to see them ride it out THIS far imo.We literally live in an attention economy now. There's nothing strange about it at all.
He got himself beat up, then he & his manager decided to spin it into something they could profit off of. Their plan took him from being some relatively anonymous C-tier actor to an international name and sympathetic figure overnight.
