New Yorker: What does America's 'thirst for punishment' for Jussie Smollett say about us?

We’d thought the hot takes on “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett, who maintains he was attacked in a hate crime, possibly by two Nigerian-born brothers who wore whiteface under their ski masks to disguise themselves as redneck Trump supporters, were all burned out, but then the New Yorker dropped this on us:

Boom.

What a stupid question.

How about: What does Jussie Smollett’s insistence that he was attacked because he’s black and gay despite extensive evidence to the contrary have to say about Jussie Smollett?

We wish the FBI would hurry up and bring federal charges against this guy; yeah, maybe we do have a “thirst for punishment.”

So far his punishment has been a couple of days stuffing envelopes at Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow PUSH Coalition, and even that wasn’t court-ordered, so yeah, we’re still thirsty.
