[Ed. – He’s making it harder for victims to come forward? Is she kidding? There has been and will be an endless stream of them long after Donald Trump has left the White House.]
Celebrity activist Alyssa Milano is apparently having a hard time believing that Jussie Smollett would actually fake a hate crime attack, wondering who “could be that hurtful.”
“If that man staged his own attack he is wrong in so many ways. No one could be that hurtful? To stage this? Right?” Alyssa Milano pleaded.
“To f*ck with all of us by playing into our weaknesses & make it even harder for victims to come forward?! No one could choose to be that hurtful? Right?! RIGHT?”
According to reports over the weekend, Chicago police now believe that Empire actor Jussie Smollett orchestrated an attack on himself by paying two men to beat him.
Smollett previously claimed that he was the victim of a racist and homophobic attack in downtown Chicago in January. The “attackers” also allegedly shouted “This is MAGA country!” during the attack.
When the news originally broke of the alleged attack, many Hollywood celebrities used it to cast blame on President Trump and his supporters.
“Heartbroken and furious reading about the attack on JussieSmollett. I want Trump and all MAGA lunatics to burn in Hell,” actor Billy Eichner said last month.
