the article I linked says police confirmed that Smollet was walking across the street from these two possible POIs and then out of frame. Then, a minute later is seen in another video camera with a necktie rope around his neck. The alleged attack is not on video. Pretty elaborate if it is a hoax. but then no amount of video evidence is sufficent for some people
This just gets more and more bizarre. Now he says he was on the phone with his manager when the attack happened yet nobody called the police and he won't turn over the phone. And his manager heard the MAGA comments that Jussie originally didn't mention to the police as having happened. If all that is true he's just not helping himself at all.
