Nearly two weeks after Jussie Smollett was reportedly attacked in a racist and homophobic encounter, his neighbors in his Chicago neighborhood are skeptical, according to sources.
“I don’t believe it happened the way he said it did. I’ve been in this neighborhood five years. I don’t believe it, not around here … Half the people are gay and the other half are black.” – Neighbor Agin Muhammad
Another person interviewed by the NY Post said Smollett’s story “doesn’t really make sense.”
“It’s a lie, because Chicago is the most liberal city around […] They have cameras everywhere … Why can’t they find the attack?” – Unnamed insider
Cops have found surveillance video, but none of the cameras captured the alleged incident. Chicago police also say Jussie has yet to turn over his cellphone data to verify that he was on the phone with his music manager, Brandon Moore, when the alleged attack occurred.
Moore is the one who said he heard Smollett’s assailants shout a “racial slur” and the words “MAGA country.”
