‘F*** No:’ Jussie Smollett Wouldn’t Let ‘Empire’ Cast a White Boyfriend for His Character

Was this alleged ‘hate crime’ fueled by anti-white animus?

Published

Jussie Smollett, the “Empire” actor who claimed that he was attacked by two supporters of President Donald J. Trump because he is gay and black, refused to allow “Empire” staff to cast a white boyfriend for his character, Jamal.

“There was talk about Jamal having a white boyfriend,” Smollett said at the time. “And I said, ‘F*** no!’ Not for any reason, except we have a responsibility and we have a such a beautiful opportunity to show two black men in a relationship together, in a healthy relationship.”

Smollett has personally been engulfed in controversy for the past two weeks.

He claimed that two men shouting “this is MAGA country” beat him, tied a rope around his neck, and covered him in bleach during a 2 a.m. attack in his swanky Chicago neighborhood. Naturally, the media ran with the story, anxious to cast Trump supporters in a negative light.

Since then, police have reviewed hundreds of hours of surveillance tape from the incident and have not been able to identify any subjects in the alleged attack. Smollett said he was on the phone with his manager at the time, but has refused to turn unredacted phone records over to the police for examination.

Meanwhile, some of his neighbors have publicly doubted the story,  and Smollett has hired a “crisis manager,” along with the PR firm for disgraced former Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein to deal with the media in the wake of alleged attack.

‘Ghostbusters’ Director Blames Hillary Clinton’s Unpopularity for Failure of All-Female Franchise Reboot

Maybe your movie just stunk, dude.

Published

on

Nearly four years later, the all-female reboot of ‘Ghostbusters’ is now remembered as one of the worst atrocities in the history of cinema, and director Paul Feig is blaming anti-Hillary Clinton backlash for its failure.

“I think some really brilliant author … needs to write a book about 2016 and how intertwined we were with Hillary [Clinton] and the anti-Hillary movement,” Feig said while appearing on SiriusXM radio last week.

“Everyone was at a boiling point. I don’t know if it was having an African American president for eight years that teed them up, they were just ready to explode,” he added.

Feig is desperate to make excuses for his movie’s failure, rather than take personal responsibility for creating one of the worst movies in film history.

“It’s crazy how people got nuts about women trying to be in power or be in positions they weren’t normally in,” Feig said. “It was an ugly, ugly year.”

The fake news media has been pushing the line that sexism doomed the movie since its historic failure at the box office during its summer 2016 release. However, ‘Ghostbusters’ creator Ivan Reitman believes that it was nostalgia that caused the backlash, not sexism. Viewers did not want to watch a ‘Ghostbusters’ reboot that was seemingly blasphemous to the original.

“I think there’s way too much talk about gender [when it comes to this film],” Reitman said during an interview with Mashable. “I think that many of the people who were complaining were actually lovers of the [original] movie, not haters of women.”

Feig refuses to admit that his creation was so horrendous and even hopes to release a grueling 3.5 hour directors’ cut of the flick despite the fact that nobody wants to see it.

Because the movie was such a massive bomb, the cast has been scrapped and replaced with a new cast for the upcoming re-boot “Ghostbusters: Afterlife.” The initial trailer was released last year to rave reviews.

It can be seen here:

Actress Leslie Jones, who starred in the failed all-female reboot, whined about the new movie that is set for theaters in 2021 for completely sweeping her movie under the rug. Similar to her director, she blamed Trump because everyone hated her awful movie.

Feig and Jones, in true liberal fashion, have refused to own up to their own failures. They will continue to create scapegoats instead of admitting the obvious about their horrendous movie that failed spectacularly in its feminist agenda of female empowerment.
