So Jussie Smollett‘s secrets are continuing to trickle out to the masses as his case files continue being released. Now, a recording of the 911 call made to the police on the night of the alleged staged attack against him has been released. The call was made by someone claiming to be employed by Jussie. Well, if you don’t think this horse has been beaten to death enough, read more about how Jussie’s attack may have been an elaborate scam job which he won’t be prosecuted for.
The night that Jussie was allegedly attacked by two gay-hating racist Trump supporters shouting slurs at him, he didn’t call the police himself. Instead, a friend called and told them about a famous person he works with being attacked, asking for police to come by. So if Jussie did set up this whole thing (which is likely) then that means either this guy was in on it, or he convinced his own friend and employee that he was attacked, which is a “Yikes” either way.
The call, placed on January 29, starts with the friend saying this:
“I just need the police to come by… I work with an artist I don’t really want to say his name but he states that he went to the subway he was walking by–some guys–somebody jumped him or something like that–and I just want to report it and make sure he’s alright.”
I mean, why not say his name? Did you think the 911 operator was going to put the phone down with you, and before even sending an officer to your location, alert TMZ to the drama? Probably, but still.
The friend says that Jussie didn’t want him to call the police (Sure, Jan–the police are the whole point) so he took the initiative himself:
“He didn’t want me to call you guys but I feel like he needs to make a report… He’s definitely going to make the report–I’m going to make him make the report.”
The operator asks if the person needs an ambulance since attacks will require those, but this was apparently a low-grade assault, more like a frightening kerfuffle with deeply racial overtones:
“I just think he’s startled. It’s really weird ma’am just cause I’m scared I don’t know what it is–they put a noose around his neck… You know, they didn’t do anything with it but they put it around his neck–that’s really fucked up to me, sorry for saying it like that.”
So this has yielded absolutely zero new information. Chicago can keep trying to get it’s money from Jussie, Jussie can get a regular people job somewhere that will hire him to pay it back, and we can all move on to the next drama. I don’t want to see any more about this unless it’s juicy information. AKA: I’m interested if it’s a dick pic from one of those body builders. Get that from the case files.
