Jussie is receiving major backlash in the wake of his alleged attack in Chicago, and has now become the face of racist parody movie posters in Los Angeles.
On Monday, at least two posters popped up at a bus station near Fox Studios in Century City. The posters have Jessie’s face photo shopped onto the backdrop of posters for “Black Panther” and “BlacKkKlansman.” The posters mock the claims Jussie made of the alleged attack.
The Black Panther poster reads, “Black Prankster” and the BlacKkKlansman poster displayed an image of Smollet during his ‘GMA’ interview, wearing a MAGA hat. The poster read, “This is MAGA country!”
The posters have been signed by conservative street artist Sabo. The same artist that is known for his posters of Meryl Streep in 2017 saying, “She Knew” during the Weinstein scandal.
Authorities now believe Jussie orchestrated the “attack” with the two Nigerian brothers. A grand jury is set to hear evidence soon, and potential indictment against Jussie could be forthcoming.
