For those older and may not watch the series Empire... But he came out and said he was attacked by two white guys wearing MAGA hats that beat him, yelled racist shit and then put a noose around his neck.
No one goes around wearing a MAGA hat in Chicago yelling "THIS IS TRUMP country!" And most people don't even know anything about the connotation of the rope, noose, etc... Reminded me of that Muslim girl in NYC saying MAGA wearing white guys attacked her... On a subway... during a day... no witnesses... Yah ok.
That smelled like bullshit all the way to Ukraine.
We then had a massive "OMG TRUMP AND PENCE ARE MAKING THIS POSSIBLE!" bullshit.
When the story first broke it was initially socially treated as true and there was widespread shock and outrage with extensive, really extensive, media coverage. (Both social, fringe and mainstream.) OK, now seriously, imagine at that point we change the narrative a bit. Let us assume exactly the same story but let make our celebrity white and instead of being called a nigger he was called a white pig or some slur against whites. Let us also assume everything else in the story remains the same. How much of a story would this have been?
Now, separately, to sweeten the pot lets make our celebrity victim white and straight.
Back to the reality of what's actually happened so far. If this guy isn't fired from his current gig it will be a miscarriage of social justice.
