Jussie Smollett Fires Back at Hater Comparing Him to Girl Who Faked Hate Crime

*Jussie Smollett fired back at a self-help author who compared him to the 12-year-old Virginia girl who allegedly lied about being the victim of a racially charged attack by white classmates.

“Jussie really is a trendsetter,” online personality Derrick Jackson wrote on Instagram — under a photo of Amari Allen and the headline, “Virginia Teen Who Claimed White Students Cut her Dreadlocks Reportedly Admits to Fabricating The Story.”

Smollett has been accused of staging a hate crime on himself late January in Chicago, after claiming two masked men tied a noose around his neck, doused him with alcohol and yelled racist, homophobic slurs.

“Y’all can continue to be misinformed, internalized sheep, who believe what actual prove liars feed you or you can read the actual docs.  Either way, Imma be alright,” the  former “Empire” star added.

Meanwhile, Amari’s family admitted Monday that their daughter’s tale of three white classmates pinning her down and cutting her dreadlocks, while calling her hair “ugly” and “nappy” — was all a hoax.

Stephen Danish, head of Immanuel Christian School, also confirmed the allegations were false following an investigation by the Fairfax County Police Department.

“While we are relieved to hear the truth and bring the events of the past few days to a close, we also feel tremendous pain for the victims and the hurt on both sides of this conflict,” he said. “We recognize that we now enter what will be a long season of healing.”
