Look up “chutzpah” in the dictionary, and instead of a verbal definition, you’ll find a photo of Jussie Smollett:
BREAKING: Jussie Smollett speaks after all charges were dropped: "I have been truthful and consistent on every single level since day one. I would not be my mother's son if I was capable of one drop of what I have been accused of." https://t.co/llZlJ934Wn pic.twitter.com/miCDNDRxxs

Forget actor, Smollett is a psychopath. https://t.co/hNqSsIQYbY

And not just your garden-variety psychopath:
A genuine f*cking psychopath.
It is this sort of bulls*** that makes a mockery of the criminal justice system. They didn't even pry an apology out of this jackass. https://t.co/2Co6SQbZAT

And Lord knows he’s got a lot to apologize for. He didn’t just make a mockery of the criminal justice system; he put others’ lives in danger by pulling police resources and encouraged others to do the same.
Despicable. This makes the decision so much worse. Rewarding a pathological liar who diminished hate crimes and encouraged more hoaxes. https://t.co/S5E3GveiJL

And through it all, he maintains that he’s not only the victim, but the hero as well:
"Now I'd like nothing more than to just get back to work and move on with my life," Smollett says after charges are dropped.

Jussie Smollett, casting himself as a reluctant hero: "First of all, I want to thank my family, my friends, the incredible people of Chicago, and all over the country … I will always continue to fight for the justice, equality, and betterment of marginalized people everywhere." pic.twitter.com/VoAdYcfV7k

Disgusting. Just an absolutely sickening display.

What an utter garbage person. And he’ll never have to answer for any of it.
Good job, Crook County https://t.co/mAErROu6s4
