    • +Charlie X ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚i shouldn’t be laughing at this

    • Jezballz
      What are you talking about Lol? Jussie’s Good Morning America interview was some of the worst acting I’ve seen.

    • +One Dollar Bleach obvious
      The bleach picture though ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ

    • +I plead the 5th I think he was being sarcastic ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
      That entire view was horrible ๐Ÿ˜

    • +Michael Shipman Social justice is an insanely broad term, so your logic is impossible to understand.

    • +Jester Avrgjoe racism is bullcrap. If you meet a hundred Chinese and they are all ignorant. You are not going to like Chinese people that’s human nature. I’m half black. But black people earn the hate in my opinion.

    • +luger 925 I feel you. I’ve read like 3 of your comments & you’ve already earned my hate.

    • c. l. He hasnโ€™t been tried nor convicted so I reserve judgment even tho itโ€™s not looking to good

    • LIT Tiaa yes he needs to do time in a real prison, not a depression center for celebrities. Prison โ€ผ๏ธโ€ผ๏ธ

    • Awesome Emperor I agree he has clout but it wasnโ€™t enough he was clout chasing done conspired a crime & used tax payer dollars for his bs

    • Gizmo Balboa no he deserves a due process thatโ€™s it i dont watch that show or not a fan at all

    • +ballerboy doyoueven ps. I would never date a white guy. I’m not even remotely attracted to them.

    • +Cindy Do lol yeah right no black person would ask that unless it’s a bed wench trying to be accepted ๐Ÿ™… when whites get attacked they get way more justice than us. Ps. Your not black. U just want attention.. Here it is!!

    • +D O ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ okay good one

  1. they way things are going on now with this Jussie thing being all staged I’m afraid he might commit suicide if it’s true ๐Ÿ’

  2. He should. Come out and say the left payed him to do it. Kamil Harris. Ect. Omg. Jussy is only gay for pay guys. He is not gay that’s a hoax

    • He makes little. He wishes the whole thing is true, that’s crazy to me. He wishes an actual hate crime took place

    • +trf12567 lol at this entire comment ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚you made me laugh
      Have a good day

    • Foushee i Its bad alright he has made Afro Americans, Gay people and people with different political views look bad. He could have invoked additional unneeded hate to already divided country. This a mess he may have gotten himself in with no exit plan. smh ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ

    • ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  3. I went and watched his interview on GMA again, gosh the way cried and acted I still can’t believe.๐Ÿค”

  4. I donโ€™t know why you guys donโ€™t believe him! The same thing happened to me. I was going for a stroll at 2 oโ€™clock in the morning when out of nowhere 2 transgender gay males wearing Obamaโ€™s ( Hope and Change tea shirts) viciously attacked me. They doused me with Chanel # five. One of the HeShes held me down while the other tied a designer silk scarf around my neck. Both were screaming we donโ€™t like your kind here BREADER! Donโ€™t you know this is Obama country? I barely escaped had it not been for a hotdog truck driving down the road that obviously drew their attention allowing me precious time to escape. I took my story to all the news networks and none would air my attack. I felt maybe if I was a woman, or a black man, or a Muslim I wouldโ€™ve gotten the national attention this story deserves but Noooooo. This whole thing has left me so traumatized I donโ€™t think I can ever watch another episode of Will and Grace again.

    • D O yo you make my pee come out ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

  5. Whatโ€™s worse than his fabricated story is if itโ€™s true. Iโ€™m a white male Trump supporter and Iโ€™m also a 10 year army combat vet. I would never attack a man for his skin color or sexual preference. I fought for people like him to express himself openly and be proud about it. I have gay friends and most of my employees are black. The first thing soldiers see when they come back to the US from combat is all the protesters at the gates outside yelling at us and holding up signs saying horrible things about us. We see all of this before we get to the hanger where our family and friends are set up to welcome us back chime and show support. As a young soldier, this used to upset me and anger me but now that Iโ€™m older I understand why. Itโ€™s to show us who all we fought for. Those against us and those for us. Those people protesting us deserved the same rights as the ones who supported us. Getting spit on and things thrown at me were the balance of the hugs and kisses I got from my wife and kids. Majority of Trump supporters arenโ€™t the aggressive ones who are rioting and causing harm to anyone. We just want a better country and unity of all who are legal Americans who deserve the right to be safe and taken care of.

    • Mike Carter haha another loser liberal who canโ€™t handle that Trump is the man. Just keep crying for another 6 more years. U never saw Conservatives cry this much about Obama.

    • I AM u donโ€™t have to be a Trump supporter and thatโ€™s what this is all about. We can agree to disagree. Having open minds and open dialogue is what itโ€™s all about. I am a Tampa Bay Bucs, Lightning and Rays fan but I wouldnโ€™t want everyone else to be. Not everything Trump does is gold but itโ€™s not all duds either. We all benefit by the things he does right and we all lose when he does the wrong things. I donโ€™t want America to be a weak and third world country no matter who is President.

    • Ben Vasilinda Thank You ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ for your service Sir ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

  6. Iโ€™m not surprised I grew up in LA area met lots of gay men and woman and one thing I noticed is they love to play the victim card any chance they can..

    • Of course. They get what they want easier since anyone that questions them gets called a homophobe.
