Jussie Smollett Asks Prosecutor To Stop Saying N-Word While Quoting His Text Messages

From WWW.DAILYWIRE.COM

Former “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett asked Special Prosecutor Dan Webb to stop reading the N-word out loud during the court hearing as the attorney read Smollett’s own messages aloud as evidence.

The exchange took place during the sixth day of the controversial trial involving Smollett. He is facing six counts regarding allegations he staged a hate crime against himself in 2019 and claimed he was the victim of a racist and homophobic incident.

“Some of the messages included the use of the N-word, prompting Smollett to interrupt the prosecutor to ask him to spell or abbreviate the word so as not to offend ‘every African American in this room,.'” Tyler McCarthy reported for Fox News.

The messages were originally written by Smollett.

Webb then invited Smollett to read his own messages before the court, but said he would not comply with Smollett’s request. Smollett reportedly complied with the offer.

Webb: I don’t intend to do that sort.. you can read your messages aloud.

Smollett then reads his own message

As The Daily Wire reported Monday, Fox News national reporter Matt Finn, who has been covering the trial since its beginning last week, offered several updates via Twitter after Smollett took the stand.

“Jussie Smollett just said under oath ‘there was no hoax,’” Finn tweeted, adding, “Smollett says he was driving, smoking a blunt and texting with a woman about MSNBC appearance – day of January 27th – when the Osundairo brothers were in his car. Brothers say that’s when hoax was being planned.”
