Don Lemon to Jussie Smollett: If Charges Are True, 'Confess, Throw Yourself on the Mercy of the Court'
Don Lemon appeared on CNN Thursday evening to let viewers know that he found the idea that Jussie Smollett staged the assault against him to be increasingly credible.On set with Chris Cuomo, Lemon said that if Smollett was guilty he should confess and plead for mercy and forgiveness.“It’s hard to see how this would indeed be a set-up,” Lemon said. “I say if it is true, confess. Throw yourself on the mercy of the court, and of the people, and then see where that leads you.”Also Read: Jussie Smollett 'Feels Betrayed,' Legal System 'Wants to Skip Due Process,' Actor's Reps SayCuomo agreed.“If you screwed up and did this, own it. You want to say why you did it this way, do that, but you’re not helping the cause,” he said. “I’ll tell you that right now, there’s a lot of truth that’s going to get covered up by one untruth.”Also Read: Jussie Smollett Returns to 'Empire' Set After Posting Bail in False Police Report CaseAfter news of the alleged attack was first reported, Lemon swiftly became one of Smollett’s staunchest defenders on air and in private. Earlier this month, he told Entertainment Tonight that he texted Smollett every day after to check up on him.“So every day I say… ‘I know you think I’m annoying you, but I just want to know how you’re doing. And that you’re OK. And that if you need somebody you can talk to me because there’s not a lot of us out there,'” Lemon said. “Sometimes he responds, sometimes he doesn’t. He responded and said, ‘You are not annoying.'”Also Read: See Jussie Smollett's Mug Shot (Photo)Smollett was taken into custody by Chicago police on Thursday and is currently facing a felony charge of filing a false police report. He was released the same day after posting $100,000 bond. In a press conference, Chicago police superintendent Eddie T. Johnson laced into Smollett, saying the “Empire” star fabricated the hate crime because he was unhappy about his salary on the show.“Jussie Smollett took advantage of the pain and anger of racism to promote his career,” Johnson said. “Bogus police reports cause real harm. They do harm to every legitimate victim who is in need of support by police and investigators as well as the citizens of this city … I’m offended by what happened and I am also angry.”For his part, Smollett has continued to profess his innocence.“Today we witnessed an organized law enforcement spectacle that has no place in the American legal system,” a statement put out on his behalf read. “The presumption of innocence, a bedrock in the search for justice, was trampled upon at the expense of Mr. Smollett and notably, on the eve of a Mayoral election. Mr. Smollett is a young man of impeccable character and integrity who fiercely and solemnly maintains his innocence and feels betrayed by a system that apparently wants to skip due process and proceed directly to sentencing.”Read original story Don Lemon to Jussie Smollett: If Charges Are True, ‘Confess, Throw Yourself on the Mercy of the Court’ At TheWrapEntertainment HuffPost

One of the biggest movies in the world right now has already surpassed half a billion dollars at the box office in China without even having completed its second week of release yet. That puts the movie, Wandering Earth, on par with some of the biggest big screen titles to emerge from the US in recent years, like Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War.The movie, a sci-fi epic that tells the story of people trying to save earth from being destroyed by the sun, is already the second-highest grossing film in China ever. Which should explain why Netflix just snatched it up, in a deal that will introduce the film to an even wider audience via the popular streaming giant.The streamer didn't share any other details about the arrangement, like how much it paid or when the film will start streaming. But it's still a big announcement, for multiple reasons.For one thing, this will help acclimate global audiences to Chinese-produced fare. It's also a win-win for Netflix -- which, while it doesn't sell subscriptions inside China, is nevertheless making a push to appeal to global Chinese audiences. In addition to this film, Netflix is also developing its first Chinese-language original TV series.As far as Wandering Earth goes, it's definitely an understatement to say a ton of work went into this blockbuster. According to Netflix, the film was given a production scale rarely seen in Chinese films and included post-production and special effects work that took two years. That included more than 10,000 specifically-built props and the employment of some 2,000 special effects shots, in addition to a "substantial amount of computer graphics shots.""Audiences from over 190 countries will soon meet The Wandering Earth on Netflix," the film's director Frant Gwo said in a statement about the news, also raving about Netflix's plan to translate it into 28 languages. "I am glad that our movie can reach to people from different parts of the world. This is a Chinese movie created for the world, and it has been positively received since its premiere. We are very excited about it."According to a plot summary from Netflix, the movie is set in the distant future and involves the sun expanding into a red giant that threatens to destroy earth. A team of heroes builds "ten thousand stellar engines" to propel earth out of the solar system in the hope of finding a new home in space, kick-starting a 2,500-year-long journey in which humanity fights for the survival of their "wandering earth."Celebrity Meredith Videos
