Hollywood celebrities who fully-backed convicted hate crime hoaxer Jussie Smollett have been silent, as of this reporting, in the wake of Thursday’s guilty verdict in Chicago.
“We have a media that says it’s a debate that whether or not what happened to Jussie Smollett is a hate crime. It’s absurd. It’s not a fucking debate,” exclaimed actress Ellen Page (now Elliot) in 2019.
“This is a racist hate crime and is disgusting and shameful to our country,” tweeted pop singer Katy Perry.
“Homophobia existed before Trump, but there is no question that since he has injected his hatred into the American bloodstream, we are less decent, less human,& less loving,” tweeted director Rob Reiner, who also deleted his post as the evidenced piled on against Smollett.
“THIS is why we have to have zero tolerance against homophobia and racism. Jessie’s life matters,” exclaimed actress Olivia Munn in a now-deleted tweet.
“VILLAINY, RACISM, HOMOPHOBIA,” lamented singer Cher in a tweet that she never deleted.
