Here are some pretty shocking reports that are out this morning. They involve Jussie Smollett, and it seems that all the charges against the man have been dropped.
The Shade Room just reported that the Illinois state attorney’s office had dropped all criminal charges against Jussie.
It seems that his legal team said in a statement, ‘today, all criminal charges against Jussie Smollett were dropped, and his record has been wiped clean of the filing of this tragic complaint against him,’ they said. ‘Jussie was attacked by two people he was unable to identify on January 29th.’
This report comes less than two weeks after he pleaded Not Guilty to ’16 counts of disorderly conduct for allegedly lying to police about a hate crime.’
Also, CBS Chicago reported that the judge on the case had granted a motion to seal the case.
People are now convinced that he is not guilty and everyone should start apologizing to the man.
But most fans are confused, and they don’t know what to believe anymore.

Someone said ‘Soooooooo let me know when y’all ready to start apologizing to Jussie. Celebrities first, please. 😎’
Another follower posted ‘I still don’t think he’s innocent. I just think that because there were so many discrepancies and the media attention made the jury biased and I guess prosecutors didn’t have an airtight case.’
One Jussie fan wrote ‘I believed Jussie the entire time. Can anyone else say the same? #teamjussie.’
A commenter believes that even if he lied, it’s a great thing that he will be free: ‘Black Man saved. Even if he did lie he ours. I’ve told worse lies than that. 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂’
Someone else said this: ‘Chicago P.D. never really had the case they claimed they had and the FBI said as much. We all know Chicago P.D. is one of the dirtiest in the country and they were so hungry to nab a celebrity that they probably let the actual masterminds behind this incident get an immunity deal.’
You can also see Jussie speaking to the reporters in the clips above.
What do you think about the charges being dropped?
