    It's astounding to me that someone would exploit the tense political climate we are currently faced with for the sake of their career, but here we are.

    Yeah. All because he was upset at his pay.

    Well, now he's got huge legal fees upcoming and won't be getting any work.
    Everything will surely be all right.

    Looking at things from a different perspective for a minute...I didn't even hear about this when it supposedly originally happened. Not at all.

    But I've gotten about 5 different notifications about this guy the past 24 hours from all kinds of different news outlets, I read about it hear, and I saw it on several channels.

    My point is, when the guy was supposedly attacked because of a hate crime, nobody cared. But when it turns out he faked an attack, it's on every single news station.

    Just a takeaway from this whole mess.

    While I agree with the sentiment, I'm a bit surprised you didn't hear about it.

    There was an awful lot of fuss over it. Granted, more now.
    Everything will surely be all right.

    This happened about a week or so back and not only was it all over the news, it was trending online like crazy and was water cooler chatter at work so i'm not sure how you missed this, man.

    Re: The Civil NA Politics Thread

    The moment I heard about the Smollett situation it sounded a little too fishy to me but idk if its gullibility/reactionary/just the political climate of today, but everyone decided to jump on it instead of getting a little bit more information. I'm at once disappointed it did not happen (because its such a fucking shit thing to do to real victims, like how fucking trash do you have to be to do that, fuck off) and happy it didn't because obviously I don't want hate crimes like that happening (and even then, there's a ton of stuff like that that does still happen but don't make the news the way this one did because they don't have his platform).

    I know there will be consequences to his actions, I just hope he doesn't detract too much from legitimate hate crimes.

    At this point, I don't know if it's better or worse if it happened and wasn't a set up.

    Well, it's all but confirmed at this point. He's been formally charged and turned himself in.

    Every ounce of evidence (And there is a lot) points directly to him.
