UH OH: Now TMZ is reporting that Smollett LIED about a big detail in his story!

TMZ is now reporting that there’s a big discrepancy in Jussie Smollett’s story, between what he said early on and what he’s saying now, and it has everything to do with race:

TMZ – A key part of Jussie Smollett’s story is not tracking … law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

TMZ broke many of the details of Jussie’s story just hours after the attack … the rope, the bleach, the statement by the attackers, “This is MAGA country” and also that his 2 attackers were white.

We have now confirmed, the 2 Nigerian men who were picked up by police at O’Hare Airport are black. Police say the 2 men are the same ones who were captured on surveillance video around the time of the incident.

Jussie told Robin Roberts this week, he’s positive the 2 men on the surveillance video are the same 2 men who attacked him.

When we first reported the details of the story — including Jussie saying the 2 men were white — we were told twice, after we posted, it accurately reflected Jussie’s version of events. We also spoke with our Jussie sources Friday and they reaffirmed he had said that day the men were white.

One of the reasons why it’s so important … as we reported, Jussie says the men hurled a racist epithet and screamed, “This is MAGA country.” As you know, Trump reportedly made hateful remarks about African countries, calling them “Shithole countries.”

The 2 men were both extras on “Empire.”

Smollett lied about this? Say it ain’t so!



Seriously, this is a big deal and it looks like Smollett’s account of what happened is headed for hoaxville fast.

We reported this morning that the two men in the surveillance had been arrested and they are both from Nigeria. I suspect before too long we’ll be reporting that Smollett himself has been arrested for lying to police.

UPDATE:

Here’s a photo of the two brothers:

Not only did Juicy state they were white racists, but there was no mention of any masks seen, which has appeared in subsequent iterations. Lock him up!
