Austen Fletcher (Street Reporter) dove deep into the University of California ‘bright’ young minds, in Los Angeles (UCLA). His motive was clear, even if their responses aren’t. Faker ‘Jussie Smollett was arrested after reporting an alleged fake hate crime where he blamed trump supporters who ‘attacked him’ only to be exposed by the very men he hired to ‘attack him’.

According to The Daily Wire, some students were predictably averse to outright admitting Smollett was in the wrong — since the apparent hate-hoax served a “larger truthful narrative,” so to speak — other students agreed that fake hate crimes hurt real victims and deepen divides, and acknowledged that the actor should face repercussions if he were to be found guilty.

“We have to look at both sides: [Smollett] wanted to show a problem in America, so that’s why he did it. But … because people found out, that approach did not work; it actually did the opposite of what he intended,” said one male student.

“No, I don’t think [Smollett] should go to jail,” said a female student, adding that “there already is a race war [in America], so maybe he’s adding fuel to the race war, which I don’t agree with that, but I don’t think he should go to jail for it.”

Another female student argued that what Smollett allegedly did in staging the hate crime is not a “big deal” given historical context.

“People are making such a big deal about if he were to fake it, and the consequences that he should go through, but I know so many counts of white people in history that have faked something that a black person has done to them, and it was never this serious … I just have a questions as to why this is such a big deal,” she said.

Reporting a false crime IS against the law, last time we checked. What about the police man-hours lost investigating a crime that apparently didn’t even take place?

All of this isn’t even taking into account the fact that Smollett’s actions were clearly to incite outrage against innocent Trump supporters.

When Fletcher noted that faking hate crimes actually marginalizes and hurts victims of real cases of targeted harassment, the woman nodded along. The student clearly couldn’t figure out a way to defend Smollett any farther.

So you think Smollett should be held accountable, if found guilty, to the fullest extent of the law or do you feel like he should be protected as an activist? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
