Empire actor Jussie Smollet, who staged a racist, anti-gay attack on himself, turned himself in today. Smollet faces accusations that he filed a false police report last month when he told authorities that he was attacked in downtown Chicago.
He staged the attack to promote his career because he was unhappy with his salary, according to Chicago’s police superintendent.
Smollet was treated as a victim until two brothers admitted to helping him stage the attack. His bail is set at $100,000.
