The SAO essentially let Jussie Smollett skate, even they couldn’t deny that there was ample evidence that his “hate crime” was a hoax. Nevertheless, there are still some loyal fans out there who are apparently determined to stick by him no matter what.

Dude. It’s true!

Conspiracy theories are all they’ve got now.
