Pelosi Deletes Tweet Supporting Jussie Smollett

Pelosi has not apologized for playing the blame game.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) deleted a Tweet from several days ago in which she said the “attack on Jussie Smollett is an affront to our humanity.”

First noted on Twitter by Nick Monroe, the Tweet is no longer live on Pelosi’s account.

In full, it read:

“The racist, homophobic attack on  is an affront to our humanity. No one should be attacked for who they are or whom they love. I pray that Jussie has a speedy recovery & that justice is served. May we all commit to ending this hate once & for all.”

Pelosi did not publicly apologize for piling on after the media blamed supporters of President Donald J. Trump for the attack. She has not publicly commented on the event since the now-deleted Tweet.

Per Pelosi’s request, it looks like justice will be served – against Smollett, who fabricated the entire event.

Smollett allegedly paid two Nigerian friends and cast members on “Empire” to stage stunt. The pair bought the rope that was found hanging around Smollett’s neck.

The actor claimed that he was beaten, a rope was tied around his neck, and bleach was poured on him while he fought for his life. He claimed that his “attackers” yelled homophobic and racial slurs. as well as “this is MAGA country” during the “attack.”

Sunday morning, Smollett’s lawyers doubled down, insisting that Smollett is still a victim, despite what police said. Their move signals that Smollett is not ready ready to give up on the hoax just yet. Chicago Police warned that Smollett will be “held accountable” for the hoax.

Daily Mail reported that Smollett could face up to three years in jail for filing a false report.
