I am not sure how Jussie Smollett thought he was going to get away with this.
While being outwardly supportive of him because he’s black and gay, I haven’t met anyone who wasn’t somewhat suspicious of his story from the beginning.
The issue was why would someone make up some a wild story, we may never have the true answer to that, but at least we know how Smollett was caught.
For an actor, he seemed to have no clue the best way to play out his role in this case. He made about 40 mistakes that even if you weren’t a cop, you could have picked up on.
