Leave it to comedic news sources to find the humor (or at least try to) from ridiculous news updates.
Many of us have kept up with the Jussie Smollett case since news broke about it late last month. But after some time, Smollett’s reports of the alleged attack have been put into question. Chicago residents were first to express doubt over details about the incident and now the two brothers connected to the incident claim that Smollett faked the entire thing.
This entire Jussie Smollett situation has become a circus show. One that could give bigots increased fervor and rhetoric.
On that matter, Smollett shared some poignant thoughts.
“Who the f*** would make something like this up or add something to it?… You do such a disservice when you lie about things like this,” he said to Good Morning America.
Smollett couldn’t be more correct. In terms of lying about the situation, Jussie Smollett is innocent until proven guilty. But, things are not looking good for the actor.
While that doom and gloom hangs over our heads, The Daily Show is trying to update everyone and give the story some light flair.
Recently, Daily Show host Trevor Noah gave a recap of the Jussie Smollett situation. If you haven’t been keeping up with the entire story, or want to hear it with some funny delivery, check out Trevor Noah’s speech down below.
