For those who were quick to jump to conclusions about Jussie Smollett, it’s time to rethink everything you thought you knew.
According to the Empire actor’s legal team, all charges against Jussie have been dropped.
Smollet’s attorneys, Tina Glandian and Patricia Brown Holmes, released a statement this morning, saying, “He was a victim who was vilified and made to appear as a perpetrator as a result of false and inappropriate remarks made to the public causing an inappropriate rush to judgment.”
Jussie made a statement during a live press conference this morning. “I want you to know that not for a moment was it in vein. I’ve been truthful and consistent on every single level since day one.”
