Denial Is Not a River in Egypt – Jussie Smollett Still Claims ‘Every Iota’ Of Wild Attack Tale Gospel

CHICAGO, IL. (THECOUNT) — Actor Jussie Smollett is still maintaining his entire story about getting attacked in Chicago is true. “Every iota” of it.

Even though Comedian Dave Chappelle recently roasted controversial actor in a brutal comedy routine, a public relations group representing Smollett says “every iota” of the entertainer’s claims about being attacked by two MAGA supporters is gospel.

The city of Chicago, of course, maintains something far different, reports LifeZette.

“Every iota of information … Smollett has stated has been fully corroborated,” the statement said in part, as the Washington Examiner reported.

Smollett alleged to authorities that two men who wore Make America Great Again hats attacked him on the street on Jan. 29, 2019, in the early morning hours and targeted him — simply because he is gay and black.

“This is MAGA country!” Smollett insisted the men declared.

He also alleged they poured a bleach-like liquid over him — and that they tied a rope around his neck.

After Smollett called the police, he oddly kept the rope draped around his neck as “proof” of what had happened.

The Chicago Police Department investigated the incident — and pretty quickly found holes in the story.

They discovered suggestions that Smollett instead had paid the two men to conduct that alleged attack on him.

The statement by the PR firm comes just two days after the city of Chicago filed a statement reaffirming its intention to recoup the cost of the investigation from Smollett via a lawsuit filed in April.
