Disgraced actor Jussie Smollett returned to court in Chicago Wednesday on renewed charges that he lied to Chicago police about being a victim of a racist and homophobic attack in January of 2019 at the hands of men wearing MAGA hats.
Smollett maintained his innocence calling the proceedings a “dog and pony show,” according to Matt Finn.
