Alright so here in Chicago they have been showing all over the news that Empire actor Jussie Smollett was taken into custody and bail has been set to $100,000. All of this uproar was due to the Empire actor not happy with his contract. This story was first broke to me by my mother. When I heard that the Empire actor was attacked some weeks ago because he was homosexual and by Trump supporters. I took a minute to laugh. My mother asked me what did I think. I told her that there’s more to this story. I kind of just brushed off the story because it didn’t make any sense. I figured that they’re lots of homosexuals that get attacked and I am very sure that none of it is reported on the news. So I asked myself why is this of any importance?
So instead of me making a blog post about it. I decided to hold off and follow this story some more, because my Spidey senses began to tingle and something just didn’t seem right. I knew that eventually the truth would emerge and obviously it has. According to https://www.theguardian.comthe reason why Mr. Smollett mastered mind his attack is due to him not being happy with his contract. That was crazy to me because Mr. Smollett could have just sat down with his agent and the production companies/Fox Studios and negotiated his contract where he could be getting a fair deal. Then I noticed that the Empire actor had scratches and wounds on his face. Later to be identified that neither one of the paid attackers had wounded Mr. Smollett these wounds were self inflicted.
So that leads me to wonder is Mr. Smollett suffering from some mental disorder? Or really was this a way to get out of his contract? Or could this be a way to promote a new season of Empire or a certain episode of Empire that they want the audience to really watch? Or was this attack Agenda driven to see how the populist at large would respond? Either way that’s sick and messed up because in the process he fooled a lot of people. Some celebs and I sure everyday common folks took to Instagram, tweeter, snapchat and Facebook to express their thoughts, feelings, opinions and concerns. It seems like Jussie Smollett had touched a lot of people through this staged attack. They were ready to go to war for this man. However, people you got to understand that these are actors. They are paid to play a role. A actor/actress is never off, they are always on. These are professional liars. Their job is to play a role; a particular part and make that character and role come to life where it plays on the viewing audience’s emotions. The viewing audience feel as if they can relate and connect to it. They can make something so false seem so real. Now I am wondering if the studios are going to find a replacement for Jussie or are they going to try and make a deal with the courts so he can’t go to jail and productions won’t be halted for sometime.
However, if being unhappy with a contract makes Smollett mastermind a hate crime/race crime. What is exactly in the contract that he wants to renegotiate or does not want to abide by anymore? That’s the real question but I feel that there is still more to this story. Until then just look at these actors for entertainment not life truths and facts.
However if have any lingering questions, concerns, and wonders about this situation as I do leave your comments below.
