Erykah Badu Cautions Against Rush to Judgment in Jussie Smollett Attack


Yesterday openly gay Empire star Jussie Smollett claimed he was attacked near his apartment in downtown Chicago by two masked men who punched him in the face and body, put a noose around his neck and doused him in bleach while yelling MAGA Country! and other racist and homophobic slurs [click here if you missed that].

Recording artist Erykah Badu cautions the community not to rush to judgment...





Later, after fans called Erykah out on her problematic language, she claimed she wasn't talking about Jussie at all, but using herself as an example.

She is right. And Jussie is a lying ass bitch. The truth will come out eventually.

I agree with @11:40 No disrespect to Jussie. Nobody deserves to be violently attacked and hope he recovers well. But something in my gut tells me there's more to this story than the public is being told. I'm not going to rush to any judgments. Everything will eventually come to light in due time.

Push that gay agenda at all costs. Best way to win over the population is playing the victim card at all costs.

Jussie's story is suspect as the day is long but ok.....
From walking at 2 am in sub-freezing temps on down.

This whole Jussie story is fake and made up. The fact that celebs are coming out of the woodworks to support him is even more suspicious.

This was nothing but a Tinder or Grinder date gone wrong. He was probably stood up, and the person he was meeting tipped off some other guys (most probably black and gay) who ended up robbing his ass and beating him up.

His publicist put a spin on it like they do best in the entertainment industry. That's why his ass drove himself to the hospital if that's even true, probably a lie cuz there would be evidence of an ambulance and a police call. Everything is smoke and mirrors.

I mean who carries bleach, a noose and ski masks with a MAGA hat at 2am in the middle of sub zero temps? And why would racists Trump supporters be watching Empire and know that his character was gay. Only black people who watch empire know him.

This story is bullshit. They need more people.

Jussie asked that the officers turn off their body cam when telling he was telling his story. I found that very odd.

Chicago is wild but I don't see this happening in the downtown area. If it did it should be on camera. They should at least see the suspects walking around with bleach and ropes with ski mask on because they had to be the only people out in -17 weather at 3 am. Chicago is one of those cities that closes early. Not 24 hours like NYC

This is why why celebs fared way better before the invention of social media. All they had to do was smile, take pics, make good music, and not be caught saying anything too stupid in public.

Thank you!!! In this age of the hive mind indoctrination. It's nice to see critical thinkers outside this bullshit ass programming.

I’m with Erykah on this one. I need proof because it sounds like some made up bullshit or somebody in his camp set his ass up. And as far as all these celebrities pissed about a gay Muthafucka being attacked is no surprise to me. They won’t get this hype for regular black folks getting attacked and mistreated by these fuck ass crakkkas out here. Just goes to show you once again Gay lives means more

I love Jussie yes I do. But I do believe he has fucked up and trying to flip the story. Something went down and it veered completely South. Time will tell and we will surely see very soon.

12:12 I don't know if has anything to do with a bunch of celebs coming out. It's just people period...jumping on a story before they know the full details. Then watch, if this is bogus everybody is going to come back and retract their support. Fake asses! Sometimes it's best not to say anything..

Eryka may be on to something. Something went down in Chris' room, but it wasn't rape. And look at Eve? Out the gate, Eve dragged Chris Brown and then came back and gave this half ass apology. Without knowing everything and cuz it's popular; people just automatically jump on the bandwagon and ride the "fake outrage" train on many instances.
Looks like Jussie may have gotten caught up. Then again, maybe not.

@12:12 I don't watch empire but I've had white coworkers who do watch and thought I was crazy for not watching. It is possible that they know. But I do agree with most of what you're saying

As I've said before, Black people are always quick to want cancel other Black people especially celebrities...except for Kanye.

Every other thing in Chicago froze the fuck up except this one bottle of bleach and if they poured bleach on him wouldnt he be blind or with some eye patch on??? Unless they were kind hooded, rope carrying bandits who were careful not to get it in his eye. Jusssss... do better stop with the random hookups. And WTF is at a hotel and needs to go out to a Subway to eat @ 2am? Instead of MAGA hats lets all put on the STBS hats 'Stop the Bull Shit'

Magick said...

@12:33 EXACTLY!! Way too many holes in this story....as was mentioned previously, who tf walks around at 2am with bleach in the middle of chicago during a frickin polar vortex??? Ahhh yes, he also happens to be gay, so there is that...

Just an observation said...

His story sounds sketchy because he was set up by a pretender in his entourage. It makes him look sketchy. That probably was the intention. It's been so abnormally cold in Chicago so I can see why people are tearing his story down and rushing to judgement.
I believe he was attacked.
Only a black person (or people) would come up with throwing bleach and MAGA homophobic slurs in the dead of winter with negative below temperatures as a diversion.
Ain't no damn KKK's or white nationalist that damn pressed.

This shit here is giving more negative attention to Chicago!

anonymous said...

I agree with what was mentioned in the earlier comments...his Grinder/Tinder date set his ass up.

Damn all this outrage over a GAY BLACK CELEBRITY...Where the fuck yall was at when a black man got shot and killed in his own fucking apartment by a white cop in dallas last year? *crickets* . They only give a fuck about their own. RICH-black
