  1. Tmz should hold some blame for immediately posting this as truth…without any investigation, just the lure of an anti trump headline

    • +HT How?their very first update they pushed the narrative and went with it.that same day within hours I made a video on my channel saying TMZ and Jussie story dont add up and so did the general public agree.TMZ never questioned the validity one point until just now

    • +Unpopular Thoughts they mostly reported the facts and they might not have been 100% correct but you had to treat Jussie as a victim in the beginning

    • This was a race senative subject in a rageful divided nation….they should have waited to release until some sort of investigation could be done…the public at large called bs from the jump so my queation is…Harvey didnt have those same questions before he released such a Huge Headline?! C’mon now

    • No, no, no… We will not hold the bag for that. The white liberals was calling this a homosexual attack and anyone white or black who questioned his story was told they were homophobic first… FOH!

  2. I hope the grand jury makes Jussie reenact the attack with the Benny Hill Theme playing in the background.

    • YOOOOO…πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£

    • +Tammy D
      Lol…you made me start cracking up again. 🀣🀣🀣

    • Dodododooo dododo doodododo….(with the fast & rewind buttom)……lol Why i still remember that.


  4. Damn Jussie we were rooting for you, we were all rooting for you now you’re cancelled bruh! What a shameπŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ

    • +Mad 1976 I’m suggesting
      the overall HOLLYWOOD way
      of casting a BULLSHIT
      narrative comes from the left.
      But I respect your TRUTH πŸ‘ˆπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‘
      Some people are not built
      for REALITY .

    • +EAGLE SHIELD Jussy and trump are also in trouble with the law made they will share the same jail cell.πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

    • All of us who pointed that out from the second the story broke were called ‘conspiracy theorists’…simply for having human eyes and ears that can sense fuckery

  5. Told y’all you were going to look stupid, TMZ. How the fuq could y’all not question this story from the beginning. Y’all lost the little credibility you might have had.

  6. Jussie deserves every damn thing that happens to him from here on out for making up this story! Shame on you Jussie!

  7. If he actually lied….I just don’t understand. He has the looks, a career and everything and still ruined it all for himself. Dumb as hell.

    • He was getting fired from empire and had just gotten into a fight with his boyfriend the night before I guess at a club because his bf was cheating on him so I think it was for attention

    • I tried to wipe a hair off my screen for 5 seconds before I realized it was your profile pic.
