Jussie Smollett has been in the news cycle longer than any other person or story in the year 2019. All because he staged an attack on himself in Chicago.
It was alleged that Jussie staged this attack because the hate letter he sent to Fox did not create enough outrage he staged the attack. Jussie was clearly looking for some time notoriety or attention at a massive level.
Let’s just call it what it is, Jussie Smollett was clout chasing for attention. And he may not have gotten it the way he wanted it but he got it. Good, Bad, or indifferent, Jussie Smollett has the talk of the town for months now.
So let’s check the score. He got his charges dropped, released from jail, he got the attention he wanted, and it is looking like he will keep his acting role on the TV Show Empire.
The way it is looking, Jussie’s plan to garner some attention through outrage worked like a charm.
