Jussie Smollett is expected to be on trial in a Chicago court on November 30. In 2019, he was indicted for paying brothers Abimbola and Olabinjo Osundairo after staging a racist and homophobic MAGA attack on himself and was charged with sixteen counts of lying to the police and providing false information. All of those were dismissed by Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx with a $10,000 bail which was forfeited as the only real penalty. Foxx's actions drew mass outrage leading to special prosecutor Dan Webb and his team bringing six new disorderly conduct charges against him in 2020. But a year before that Kamala Harris had painted Smollett as the "kindest and gentlest human beings" on Twitter. The old tweet has resurfaced on the Internet ahead of the trial and VP Harris is being brutally trolled for it. 

Smollett's defense team had spoken to the press after Foxx dismissed all charges against him. "Today, all criminal charges against Jussie Smollett were dropped and his record has been wiped clean of the filing of this tragic complaint against him. Jussie was attacked by two people he was unable to identify on January 29. He was a victim who was vilified and made to appear as a perpetrator as a result of false and inappropriate remarks made to the public causing an inappropriate rush to judgment." Police's investigation had shifted after they had spoken to the Osundairo brothers who claimed they were paid $3,500 to stage the attack. Later it was reported that one of them was a side character on 'Empire' which further proved that Smollett had a prior relationship with the actor.

Kamala Harris' 2019 tweet in support of Jussie Smollett resurfaced on the Internet on Sunday, November 29. The 'Empire' cast member was trending a night before he stands trial for the hate-crime hoax and Harris' tweet was reshared after which netizens branded her as his top supporter. "Remember that time when the elite Jussie Smollett faked a hate crime? Many of us remember. We also remember Harris condoning such a disgusting thing. You know who wants a race war? #Biden #KamalaHarris and #Pelosi. #LiberalHypocrisy" a tweet read. Another user tagged VP in his tweet asking, "@VP The Jessie Smollett trial starts tomorrow..... Do you think NOW is a good to apologize for your false statement?"

"Keep in mind timing of #JussieSmollett hoax #HateCrime was during period when then-Senator #KamalaHarris was pushing anti-lynching legislation. Smollett campaigned for Harris; they were close friends. Had a noose around his neck when #police arrived. Coincidence or the plan?" a third tweeted. "@KamalaHarris @joerogan Kamala, why don't you comment on Rittenhouse or the terrorist attack in Waukesha? I remember how you defended Jussie Smollett and his fake racist claims...might wanna prepare since Smollet's trial starts this week," tweeted another. If convicted on any of the six disorderly conduct counts, Smollett could face one to three years in prison but chances are he can receive probation given his squeaky clean record.
