Watch CNN’s Don Lemon Have a Meltdown Over Jussie Smollett’s Felony Charge

Empire Actor Jussie Smollett is in custody after turning himself into Chicago police Thursday morning. Smollett is accused of faking a hate crime against himself and has been charged with a felony for filing a false police report. He claims he was attacked by two men wearing "Make America Great Again" hats who shouted "this is MAGA country." He also claimed he received a threatening letter showing a man hanging from a noose at gunpoint next to "MAGA." The physical attack happened in the middle of the night, in Chicago (not MAGA country), during a Polar Vortex.


After his story completely fell apart, with evidence showing he sent the letter himself and hired two brothers (of Nigerian descent) to attack him, on Wednesday evening the news broke that Smollett would be charged. CNN's Don Lemon, whose show airs at 10 p.m. eastern, had a meltdown and proclaimed this isn't Smollett's fault. Further, Lemon's biggest concern seems to be the reaction from Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson.

Since the beginning of the Smollett case, Lemon has been one of the actor's biggest defenders and shamed those who doubted his story. 


Smollett's lawyers are arguing he deserves a presumption of innocence until this case is over. Chicago police will hold a press conference this morning and give further details about Smollett's allegedly false claims.
