Both the many Democratic Presidential Candidates, celebrities like Katy Perry and the mainstream media have so far remained silent after it became clear that Empire actor Mr Jussie Smollett made up an attack on himself, probably after learning he was about to lose his job.
The MSM, who was quick to blame Trump supporters for the made-up event, have not apologized just yet. It comes almost one month after the ‘Covington-boys’ video went viral and Buzzfeed published a ‘fake’ story about the Mueller investigation which all of the mainstream media eagerly copied.
The only Democratic presidential candidate who has thus far reacted to the updated reporting about the young actor making up an attack and blaming it on Trump supporters if Mr Corey Booker, who claimed that he would need to ‘look at updated reporting’ on the case before making any further comments.
Mr Booker, a Democratic presidential candidate, had earlier tweeted that ‘the vicious attack on actor Jussie Smollett was an attempted modern-day lynching’ and used it as an urgent example for why the Anti-Lynching bill, which would designate lynching as a federal hate crime, should be passed.
