Latifah stands by Jussie Smollett.
Blog King, Mass Appeal
NEW YORK — “U.N.I.T.Y!” In the verdict of public court, former “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett is guilty of falsifying a police report to besmirch the portrayal and reputation of Donald Trump supporters. Queen Latifah, however, believes different. During a recent conclave on “Through Her Eyes,” the 48-year-old rapper said she’s gonna stand by Jussie’s lying ass until she sees conclusive evidence of iniquity. “[Jussie] has always been someone who cares about people, who cares about others, and who’s very kind, and who’s always been cool and sweet,” Latifah told host Zainab Salbi. “So, until I can see some definitive proof — which I haven’t seen yet — then, you know, I gotta go with him until I see otherwise.”
Um, Latifah… definitive proof exists.
Police found plenty of undeniable evidence in conjunction with raw surveillance footage.

Jussie was recently charged with a felony after police determined he remunerated Nigerian brothers Olabinjo and Abimbola Osundairo to stage a phony hate crime in frigid weather, outside a Subway deli at 2.a.m. in Chicago. The Nigerians impersonated MAGA supporters during the attack.
Jussie, who’s out on a $100,000 bond, swears he’s innocent.
The gay rascal was released from “Empire” shortly after the arrest.
Do you agree with Latifah?
Was Jussie set up?
