2 days after Jussie Smollettโ€™s attack,LE has released a grainy video of 2 people walking in the area where he says the attack happened. He claims he was talking to his manager when attack happened, but he is refusing to give LE his cell. Suspicious?

He got drunk and fell down a flight of steps. Then made up the rest.

Now that, I believe!
( No press coverage for that)

I don't know what happened and this could all either be true or fabricated. But, I bet that if the news had reported the perpetrator yelled "Death to a Trump supporter!" or anything of the like, you would not be questioning his story. And by "you", I mean the majority of Trump supporters.

Maybe the left would be. Honestly, we should all seek the truth but in this polarized time, we only do when it helps us.

That aside, it doesn’t seem appropriate to blame either side for seeking the truth. To turn this into an attack on Trump supporters for seeking the truth and not rolling over and taking this narrative is uncharacteristic of you.

Actually, you didn't understand my point. I don't know what happened. Maybe he is lying and if so, that needs to come to light. I'm just tired of both sides automatically dismissing any news story that doesn't fit with their agenda and shouting to the world any story that fits their agenda. Very few people are researching news and waiting for facts to come to light. I'd have said this same comment had it been a story from the Democrats.

I apologize if I misunderstood. It sounded to me like you were saying that Trump supporters were somehow in the wrong for trying to pursue this. If this is fabricated, I’d expect people to want to know, not attack those seeking the truth.

I think I understand better what you meant now regarding the polarization of society on both sides.

Again, my apologies, Kay. An apple for my favorite teacher ๐ŸŽ

Most of all, I'm fed up with the constant us vs. them, the good vs. the bad, the Republicans vs. the Democrats narrative in this country. Not everything needs to be that way. So many people here on SOH only post a poll when they can call out the other side (the "them", the "bad guys"), but never post showing the wonderful side of humanity and all the good people in this country. And, by that, I mean all the good people on both sides of the aisle. I actually believe there are far, far more wonderful people in every political party than bad. But, on this app you'd think that everyone that isn't on your side is the devil. So, yes, I'm going to continue calling out people for polls that show their side as the only good.

Actually no. The dynamics of the story seemed off. Waiting for facts still.

Well, as an independent, I see it from both parties on a daily basis so I'm not holding my breath.

He is on the show Empire, been in a few movies, he’s really an up and coming star, it’s so hard to believe he would ruin his career if this isn’t true? Very bizarre!

I've never watched the show. The truth is probably something really embarrassing (hence my "Grindr date gone bad" comment), so he figured why not make something up, and why not make Trump supporters look bad at the same time. Win/win.

And also, in the "no news is bad news" front, way more people know his name now than they did a couple days ago.

At least you can admit that something seems 'off' about it. I'm proud of you.

I think he has a sister named Journey, also an actress. I like him on talk shows. Seems like a nice guy.

Manager is corroborating the MAGA comment too. Dont you think he wouldve called the cops if he heard that going on?

He’s the one on the phone with. Was there a doorman? Why not give LE your phone? Why not call 911 immediately instead of walking back to hotel do so? And I’m sorry but the photo of “two people walking” could have been anyone with coats on. It could have been two women.

Okay, but who else could have caused his disfiguring injuries, particularly the deep scars caused by the noose around his neck? He’s just lucky someone was able to save his life by cutting him down in time!!

A Grindr date gone wrong.

That's a good manager, talking to your client at 2 am who has the munchies.

That’s a good one Kelly. He could have made up a story to save himself the embarrassment and could be a reason for not handing over cell.

This is how the call to his manager probably went:
Manager: it's 2 am, why are you calling me?
Jussie: I met a guy, and things got a little rough
Manager: are you ok?
Jussie: I think I need to go to the hospital, but I don't want to reveal this guy's identity
Manager: ok, go there and tell them you were attacked by a couple Trump supporters for being gay and black. I'll say I was on the phone with you and heard the whole thing.
Jussie: ok, sounds like a good plan.

Conversation sounds more believable than the story. I just still can't get over the fact that he arrived at the hospital with the rope still around his neck...

Maybe there was no other guy, and he was enjoying a little autoerotic asphyxiation and had a mishap.
