Jussie Smollett is back in the headlines, and Wendy Williams has a lot to say about it.
Smollett is making news again after being indicted on six counts of disorderly conduct stemming from his 2019 claims of being the victim of a racist, homophobic attack.
Shortly after the alleged attack, Smollett was accused of staging the incident, which he denied, and was charged with 16 felony counts of disorderly conduct which were later dropped.
Williams said of the new indictment, “Chicago should just let this go. Let it go, man. You’re wasting time with the court system.”
She added, “Jussie Smollett is alleged to have done a horrible thing, but with the gang violence and the bad school system in Chicago — you guys have bigger fish to fry.”
The talk show host also said that whether Smollett ends up going to jail or not, his career is over.
“His prison life has already started. He’ll never work again. Nobody cares about him,” she said. “If I saw him walking down the street I’d cross to the other side,” she added.
