Can you imagine being the public relations (PR) firm that has the task of trying to repair the image of alleged hoaxer and former “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett? What can you do? Most people think the guy is a liar. Well, if you ask Smollett’s current PR team, they’re say that Smollett never lied about a single thing.
This is not a joke.
According to the Associated Press (AP), a Wednesday statement released by Smollett’s PR team says that “every iota of information…Smollett has stated has been fully corroborated.”
Okay. By who? Certainly not the Chicago Police Department (CPD) nor the city of Chicago.
The AP report also noted that “the statement didn’t say what evidence allegedly backs Smollett’s claim that masked men hurling racist and homophobic insults beat him and looped a noose around his neck.”
Smollett’s PR firm must’ve been paying attention to the media’s tactic of labeling everything anyone right of center does or says as “racist,” because they too aren’t showing any evidence to support their claim.
