Readers of The 4PM overwhelmingly said actor Jussie Smollett should be sent to jail for his 2019 hate crime hoax.
Smollett, a gay black man, was found guilty of five counts of disorderly conduct Thursday for lying to police about being attacked by pro-Trump bigots in January 2019.
96% of readers said Smollett should be sent to prison for his antics.
4% of readers said he should walk free.
Meanwhile, Nenye Uche, Smollett’s lead attorney, pledged Thursday to appeal his conviction, telling reporters: “We feel 100% confident that this case will be won on appeal” and “we remain 100% confident in our client’s innocence.”
