Jussie Smollett still insists he did not lie about the homophobic and racist attack, because IF he did he would be a total piece of s**t — and he claims everyone knows he’s not that.
The actor dug in his heels Wednesday morning on Sway‘s SiriusXM show, talking about why he feels he got screwed in court. As Jussie sees it, if you buy what the jury said — that he flat out lied — that would mean we all found out “someone is exactly the opposite of who they claim to be.”
No argument there.
However, he went on to explain that committing such a nefarious lie would mean he’d exploited the pain and fears of both Black people and the LGBTQ community — and Jussie says, “I’m not that motherf***er.”
Of course, his stunning statement flies in the face of all the evidence presented in Cook County court before he was convicted and sentenced, back in March, to 150 days.
