“Empire” star Jussie Smollett continues to insist that he’s innocence after being accused of staging a fake hate crime against himself.
Most of the country, including the prosecutor’s office that threw out his charges, continues to believe he’s guilty.
As the fallout from the case continues to hit Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx, who is now calling any criticism of her job performance racist, according to the New York Post, T-shirt designers have found a way to make money mocking Smollett’s questionable claims.
And they’re hilarious.
There’s the Jussie Smollett Scam Likely T-shirt, likening the actor’s tale to a scam call on a smartphone.
And, of course, there’s the T-shirt that can’t help but make a pun.
This T-shirt did it, too.
This one will make you laugh out loud.
This shirt makes reference to Smollett’s claim that his attackers poured bleach on his head.
At first, this #FreeJussie shirt appears to be supportive of him, but notice the none-too-subtle use of the Subway restaurant font.
This shirt references the police report that said one of the Nigerian brothers who attacked Smollett was dealing ecstasy to the actor.
This one is groan-worthy.
This shirt is absolutely hilarious once you realize that the country and flag pictured is Nigeria. Smollett claims he was attacked by two white President Trump supporters who yelled “This is MAGA country!” His attackers ended up being black Nigerians who police say were paid off by Smollett to fake an assault on him.
Clever. Very clever. We see what you did there.
No explanation needed here.
This one is just sad. All the feels.
