Jussie Smollett is making it known that he did not stage his attack last year.
Social media was in an uproar when news broke that Amari Allen lied about having her dreadlocks cut off. Allen is a young girl who claimed she was being bully and as a result the bullies cut parts of her dreadlocks off. “We can now confirm that the student who accused three of her classmates of assault has acknowledged that the allegations were false.”
Amari Allen’s aunt Lakeisha also made a statement apologizing: “We are so embarrassed, and we are so sorry…To those young boys and their parents, we sincerely apologize for the pain and anxiety these allegations have caused…To the administrators and families of Immanuel Christian School, we are sorry for the damage this incident has done to trust within the school family and the undue scorn it has brought to the school.”
When one social media user compared Jussie to Amari- he had to set the record straight. The user commented “Jussie really is a trendsetter.”
“Y’all can continue to be misinformed, internalized sheep, who believe what actual proven liars feed you or you can read the actual docs,” Smollet wrote. “Either way, Imma be alright. I know me and what happened. You don’t. So carry on. All love.”
