Cardi B Tears Into Jussie Smollett: He ‘F—ed Up Black History Month’

Rapper Cardi B expressed her anger and disappointment in Empire actor Jussie Smollett following reported evidence that he staged his own hate crime in January.

“I’m really disappointed in Jussie Smollett,” Cardi B said in an Instagram video. “I feel like he f—ed up Black History Month, bro.”

She did also say it was possible the Chicago police were trying to frame him, but said if he did make it up the he “fucked up.”

“I want to see, I want to know what else, because if he really did that, he really fucked up, bro. This is February. You have so many people standing for you,” added. “Why would you do that bro?”

Many people who showed their support for Smollett and condemnation for Trump supporters after news first broke have now walked back their tweets and comments.

“I deleted previous inaccurate tweets as more reports about Jussie Smollett come out,” Kevin Fallon, a senior entertainment reporter for the Daily Beast, tweeted. “What a despicable act if updates are true: exploiting & amplifying the hate, division, & politicization; abusing media & police resources; and making it all the harder for victims to report.”
