I’m so discouraged ya’ll.

Jussie Smollett was arrested this morning after new evidence proves he staged his own assault. ARE YOU SERIOUS!?!?!?

According to Chicago police, the January 29th attack on the Empire star was in fact a planned publicity stunt by the actor himself.

Smollett was apparently dissatisfied with his current salary and allegedly hired Brothers Abimbola Osundairo and Olabinjo Osundairo to carry out the racially charged and homophobic attack to gain media sympathy and a few extra coins…. really?? Smh.

After being held for 47 hours the brothers eventually confessed to the attack being staged and were released.

Chicago police were able to recover a check in the sum of $3,500 from the alleged suspects. There were also several records of communication between Smollett and the brothers up to an hour before the attack.

Smollett turned himself in to the Chicago police and now faces a felony charge of disorderly conduct for filing a false police report and a $100,000 bond.  I am so disappointed…
