Godfrey on Jussie: Nigerian Funnyman Says Smollett Owes Lots of Apologies

*Funnyman/radio talk show host Godfrey, like the rest of us, is totally confused with the Jussie Smollet case ’cause it sure looks like homeboy is straight up lying about his alleged beatdown and the noose, etc.

TMZ caught up with comic outside of the Laugh Factory in Hollywood last night (02-19-19) and when asked by the camera guy what his thoughts on Smollet’s situation, Godfrey cracked that the “Empire” actor might have mental issues. Whoa. Really?

Like a lot of other folks, Godfrey says he feels used, because Jussie Smollett’s story tapped into racial sensitivities and took advantage of the divisive climate these days. He also points out certain details of the alleged attack he finds shady … like how Trump supporters don’t watch “Empire.”

Hmm, that’s an interesting and salient point … we think.

Anyway, as far as the SiriusXM talker/comedian is concerned, it’s time for Smollett to start saying sorry … apologizing to everyone he’s hurt including the gay community, the black community … and even the MAGA fans it appears he lied on.

So what kind of punishment should receive  if it’s proved he lied? Well, Godfrey believes it’s already begun … and it’s a perfect plot line for the “Empire” star. Or is it soon to be EX-“Empire” star?

In other news involving Jussie Smollett …. TMZ is reporting that the ONLY way he keep a grand jury investigation from going forward is to meet with police and somehow convince them the alleged attack was not a hoax like it looking.

As reported, in the wake of the their meeting with Ola and Abel Osundairo … who told them that Smollett paid them to rough him up, police “urgently” want a follow-up interview with him.

Cops have called his legal reps, but as of now, haven’t heard back. The guessing is that sthings are kinda on hold in Smollett’s camp because he’s reportedly hire Hollywood Criminal defense attorney Mark Geragos.

Chicago cops are said to be waiting to see if Geragos makes contact with them. Sources say if Jussie Smollett refuses to speak with police the case will go directly to the grand jury.

Get another bag of popcorn. The thrill-ride continues!
