Despite the backlash and jokes that Jussie Smollett has received as a result of the way he faked a hate crime against himself, the 39-year-old actor closed his trial with a broadway-worthy soliloquy. Following Jussie Smollet’s imprisonment for the hate crime hoax, 50 Cent lost no time in slamming him.
50 Cent poked fun at Jussie Smollett again on Twitter on Friday morning. He set his sights on the actor’s dramatic response to the entire courtroom this time, with a satirical gesture to his bravery in the face of a prison sentence.
” If i ever go to court again, i don’t care if it’s for a parking ticket. i’m gonna say this I AM NOT SUICIDAL,I’M INNOCENT, I COULD HAVE SAID I WAS GUILTY A LONG TIME AGO. as i walk out,”
On Thursday, the Jussie Smollett story appeared to come to a close when he was sentenced to 150 days in jail, which is included in his 30-month federal probationary term. All of this stems from a police report in which he said he was attacked by Trump fans who chanted ‘MAGA’ and racial obscenities at him while tying a noose around his neck.
Smollett was eventually charged with six counts of disorderly conduct for submitting a false police complaint, and the tables were turned on him. He was found guilty of five of the counts, and his sentence was handed out yesterday. However, he didn’t walk out of the courtroom without saying something.
“I am not suicidal. I am not suicidal. I am innocent. And I am not suicidal. If I did this, then it means that I stuck my fist in the fears of Black Americans in this country for 400 years and the fears of the LGBTQ community. Your honor, I respect you, and I respect the jury, but I did not do this, and I am not suicidal. And if anything happens to me when I go in there, I did not do it to myself! And you must all know that!”
Following the ruling, Smollett assured reporters that he is innocent and that he is not suicidal. However, when the news of the incident broke in 2019, 50, along with a slew of other rappers, expressed sympathy for Jussie Smollett, but he then criticized the actor for lying.
