NY Times got a little ahead of itself just now.

Don't give him any ideas ok?

This can't get to the frontpage soon enough.  It's going to be amazing.

So when you're black, and you falsely play the race card, you are not helping.
When you're gay, and you falsely create drama, you are not helping.

In fact, you are hurting others with real problems when you do this.

I really think he should have gone with an Asian gang or something. They could have looked Asian and spoke another language....could have been Asian.

When facing scorn for socially unacceptable behavior check yourself into a rehab facility. Or has that fad passed already?

For the record, is the case against Smollett is true he wasn't trying to help anyone but himself.

Well if they weren't going to write him off the show before, they sure are now.

This is terrible for three reasons: First, it diverts important law enforcement resources away from actual crimes. Second, it diminishes actual instances of Trump-fueled aggression. And third, it makes conservatives giddy and gives them an opportunity to take a victory lap, paint themselves as the real victims, and then dismiss actual aggression by their own kind. In short, fark this guy if it's true that he fabricated this. In some ways, it's actually worse than if his account were true.

I wonder if performing arts type people ever get so wrapped up in a character that they can't separate truth from fiction.

They're playing dramatic characters in dramatic situations. Do they want their real lives to have that same drama?

It is worse.  Crying wolf farks everyone over - except for the shiatheads of the world, who get empowered.

Don't forget they also want to use this incident as a distraction because one of the white supremacist bunch just got nicked for planning to kill a lot of people.

Either he was desperate for more attention or thought he was going to be cut from the show and thought he could get a sympathy extension.

There is more anti Trump-fueled aggression than Trump-fueled aggression. Tell the truth.

Since multiple people kept trying to derail the breaking news thread of the MILITARY MAN STOCKPILING WEAPONS TO COMMIT RACIAL GENOCIDE AND KILL ALL OF TRUMPS ENEMIES with this story, I'm wondering if we should discuss that story in here.

No.

Sure, it can be tough to let go of a character after living with it for a while, but even Daniel Day Lewis knows he's pretending. Actually believing you are the character would be just as psychotic* as with your garden variety Napoleon.

But this? I don't know what the hell this was supposed to be, beyond being pathologically self-centered.

*I don't actually know if that's psychosis or not.

Always. There is a long string of actors who portray a character and then, somehow, get invited to give media and congressional appearances as if they are affected by what affected the character they played.
