I’m guessing that you have enjoyed watching the unraveling of the Jussie Smollett hate crime hoax. It’s always entertaining to see our garbage media breathlessly report a story that is so patently ridiculous that you start to wonder, “Do these reporters actually believe this nonsense?” Because honestly, look at this photo of the alleged threatening letter Jussie received. If you were on the receiving end of this letter would you be terrified? As Fingers said, it looks like someone wrote it with their foot. Yet, the media bought the rest of Jussie’s absurd story hook, line, and sinker.

I’m going to assume if you’re reading this, you’re totally up to speed on all the ins and out of Smollett’s hate crime hoax. If you aren’t caught up, then you’re in luck because Finger’s and I spent the first half hour or so of the podcast rehashing all of the twists and turns of Smollett’s scripted hate crime hoax.

Once you know all of the sorted details of this false tale of Trump inspired treachery, you’re left scratching your head, wondering why oh why would a (semi) famous actor perpetuate such an elaborate hoax?

If you’re a fan of the Enough Already podcast, then you know that I spent several years working in the entertainment industry. Because of this, I’ve interacted with actors more than most people have so I believe I might have some insight when it comes to Smollett’s possible motivation.

Mind you, I am not saying that actors are completely different from all other human beings, they aren’t. They just play make believe for a living, and I think sometimes the lines between reality and fantasy become a little blurry for them.

With all that in mind, here’s my theory:

I’m not claiming that this is absolutely, definitively, without a doubt how things went down. It’s just a theory that seems to fit the available evidence. If you disagree with me, or have a different theory, by all means let’s take it to the comments section.
