“You’re just a charlatan pretending to be a victim of a hate crime” Judge James Linn reportedly scolded Former “Empire” actor, 39-year old, Jussie Smollett as he sentenced him this afternoon. According to a breaking News Report from NBC NEWS, Smollett was sentenced to 150 days in County Jail followed by 30 months probation, on Thursday afternoon.

Smollett charges stem from a 2019 incident, in which Smollett told police that he was the victim of a homophobic and racist attack at the hands of a group of alleged attackers. Smollett was convicted on five counts of felony disorderly conduct in December of 2021. He was found not guilty on one charge of aggravated assault. Smollett reportedly began repeatedly yelling “I am not suicidal!” after his sentence was read by the judge.

“Sounds like a scene brought to us straight from an episode of Empire” said some guy named Kareem Rahman, after reading this.
