Cardi B Says Jussie Smollett 'F****d Up Black History Month' If He Lied
The whole Jussie Smollett saga just keeps getting more bizarre, and now Cardi B has weighed in on the sitch.
In case you haven't familiarised yourself with what's likely to be one of the weirdest stories of 2019 (and it's still only Feb!), check out our rundown here -- because there's honestly a LOT to unpack and the entire story is wild.
Anyway, in classic Cardi style, the rapper hit up Instagram Live to voice her thoughts on reports Jussie Smollett's racially-motivated attack in the streets of Chicago may have been a set up by the Empire star himself.
"I'm really disappointed in him, bro," Cardi told her followers.
I feel like he fucked up Black History Month, bro. Like, damn. I'm not gonna say, yet.
She continued to say that if the actor was lying, it would give more ammunition to the Trump administration to further their own agenda.
"Then you gave Donald Trump immunity to fuckin' laugh at n***as and shit. Make mothafuckas look bad," she declared.
On Saturday, Chicago police released a statement confirming that there was a change in the direction of their investigation after they questioned two Nigerian brothers -- Abel and Ola Osundairo -- who had previously been suspects in the attack.
"We can confirm that the information received from the individuals questioned by police earlier in the Empire case has, in fact, shifted the trajectory of the investigation," spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said in a statement to the press.
Smollett's lawyers have since said that the actor feels “victimised” by allegations that he played a role in his assault.
