50 Cent reacts to Jussie Smollett’s sentencing speech
Yesterday, Jussie Smollett finally received his sentencing, in his case where he was charged for five counts of lying to police. This involved his January 2019 incident, where Smollett staged his own hate crime. He payed $3,500 to Abel and Ola Osundairo, to help make it appear to be a racially targeted attack by Donald Trump supporters, in Chicago.
Smollett faced up to three years in prison for each of the five felony counts. In the end though, the “Empire” actor was sentenced to 30 months of felony probation. This included 150 days in jail. However, one of the most notable moments was Smollett speaking after the sentence, making it known that he’s not suicidal, and wouldn’t commit suicide in jail.
“I am innocent, and I am not suicidal. If I did this, then it means that I stuck my fist in the fears of Black Americans in this country for over 400 years and the fears of the LGBT community.”
Now, 50 Cent is weighing in on Smollett’s comments, as he does with many other viral topics. 50 said on Instagram how in the next time he’s in court, even for a parking ticket, he will also claim how he isn’t suicidal, and innocent.
“If i ever go to court again, i don’t care if it’s for a parking ticket. i’m gonna say this I AM NOT SUICIDAL,I’M INNOCENT, I COULD HAVE SAID I WAS GUILTY A LONG TIME AGO. as i walk out. “
