Lemon: The worst part about Smollett hoax will be all the conservative pouncing, you know

Yeah, I … don’t think that’s Jussie Smollett’s biggest problem right now, even if it might be Don Lemon’s. Early this morning, Chicago police announced that the Empire actor turned himself in to detectives working on the case after getting indicted by a grand jury.

Police are planning a presser at 9 CT to discuss their actions in unraveling the alleged hoax:

Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi tells The Associated Press that Smollett turned himself in early Thursday at central booking. Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson plans to hold a morning news conference and Smollett is expected to appear in court later in the day.
