Politicians, Celebs Who Shouted ‘Racism’ From Rafters Silent After Smollett Verdict

When the Jussie Smollett incident hit the headlines in early 2019, anyone with a modicum of critical thinking skills could see it was an obvious hoax.

Yet, leftist networks, politicians and celebrities breathlessly amplified Jussie’s claim, fueling racial division throughout the country instead of taking the ‘wait-and-see’ approach that much of the black community took at the time:

Now let’s look at who didn’t remain silent – and still promoted Jussie’s lie.

Then there’s this guy…

New York State calls this attack on Jussie Smollett what it is — a hate crime. Homophobia and racism will not be tolerated — not now, not ever. https://t.co/h6wDa7SVsX

And this guy…

Jussie is my friend – a very talented & beautiful human being. It is so hurtful that homophobic haters would dare hurt someone so loving and giving. I’m dedicated to finding the culprits and bringing them to justice. Jussie did not deserve to be harmed by anyone!

Katie Perry tweeted at the time: “Standing with and sending love to @JussieSmollett today… this is a racist hate crime and is disgusting and shameful to our country.”

And yet, none of these race-baiting celebrities and politicians who used their massive platforms to promote Jussie’s lie have deleted their tweets, or owned up to being an idiot.
