SPLC Hasn’t Removed False Tweet About Jussie Smollett Hate Hoax

The SPLC irresponsibly mislead the public, and now refuses to correct its error.

The dastardly Southern Poverty Law Center has allowed a Tweet about the Jussie Smollett hate hoax to remain live, despite the fact that the Tweet’s content has now been debunked.

“Hate crimes — especially against LGBTQ+ and black people — are increasing. Actor Jussie Smollett, who is both black and gay, was attacked by two men who allegedly shouted, ‘This is MAGA country!’ after they beat him and put a rope around his neck,” the Tweet said, linking to a GQ article.

We now know, after a tremendous amount of pubic resources were wasted investigating the hoax, that the Smollett incident was not a hate crime against an LGBT or black person, but rather a con perpetrated by Smollett himself, according to prosecutors.

He was charged with 16 felony counts of disorderly conduct after his two “attackers,” Nigerian brothers and fellow “Empire” cast members, admitted that they were paid by Smollett to perpetrate the “attack.”

A responsible organization would remove such misinformation, and apologize for misleading the public. But the Southern Poverty Law Center, which both profits from and traffics in hate, is not a responsible organization.

Their unstated mission is to work with the mainstream press and Silicon Valley tech companies to label mainstream conservatism as “hateful,” and de-platform the alleged “haters.”

To that end, the Smollett lie remains.
