Rapper Snoop Dogg took to Instagram this week to mock Jussie Smollett regarding the controversy surrounding the actor allegedly staging a hate crime on himself, according to the Daily Wire.
In January, the actor formerly on the series "Empire" claimed he was physically assaulted by supporters of President Trump as he walked through the streets of Chicago after midnight.
TMZ said at the time:
Sources directly connected to Jussie tell TMZ, the actor arrived in Chicago from New York late Monday, and at around 2 AM he was hungry and went to a Subway. We're told when shortly after he walked out on his way home, someone yelled, "Aren't you that f***ot 'Empire' n*****?"
The 2 men — both white and wearing ski masks — viciously attacked Jussie as he fought back, but they beat him badly and fractured a rib. They put a rope around his neck, poured bleach on him and as they left they yelled, "This is MAGA country."
As TheBlaze recently reported, the city later determined that Smollett's alleged attack was merely a hoax. Prosecutors then charged Smollett with16 counts related to making false statements to law enforcement officials. However, the actor ended up only having to agree to pay a fine of $10,000 and perform community service in exchange to have the charges dropped.
Smollett is now suing the city of Chicago for its handling of the case.
