Jussie Smollett he still insists that he did not lie about the homophobic and racist attack, because if he did, he would be total shit – and he claims that everyone knows that he is not.
The actor crashed into his heels on Wednesday morning Svai‘s SiriusKSM show, talks about why he feels screwed up in court. As Jussie sees it, if you accept what the jury said – that he lied completely – it would mean that we have all discovered that “someone is the complete opposite of who he claims to be.”
There is no argument here.
However, he went on to explain that doing so under the guise of lying would mean exploiting the pain and fears of both blacks and the LGBTQ community – and Jesse says, “I’m not fucking that.”
Of course, his startling statement supports all the evidence presented in the Cook County Court before it convicted and convictedback in March, for 150 days.
Speaking of which, Jussie also talked about his time behind bars … explaining why he stopped eating all the while he was in Cook County Jail.
He says fasting is something his family always does to clarify, and he wasn’t sure how long he would be in jail. Remember, despite the 150-day sentence, Jussie immediately asked the judge to release him on bail while he filed the appeal.
Jussie says: “Never in my life, at least in my adult life, have I been so clean as those 6 and a half days.”
What is unclear about Jesse’s clarity is how long he would have continued to fast if the judge had not let him outand also … what exactly he clarified during that time.
In any case, he says he will not allow Hollywood studios or casting directors to ruin his career in the future – he has a plan for that. What he did not entertain is what will happen if his appeal fails, and he must return to prison and complete his sentence.
