Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors is urging the public to call the jail where Jussie Smollett is incarcerated and demand the disgraced actor be freed.
Cullors, a self-described “trained Marxist,” resigned as executive director of the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation last year amid criticism of her lavish lifestyle, personal wealth and ownership of four high-end homes that amount to $3.2 million.
The socialist grifter warns the conditions hate crime hoaxer Smollett is subjected to in jail are “unacceptable.”
“I’m in Chicago and was able to see Jussie today, and he’s strong, but what’s happening inside is just — it’s just unacceptable,” Cullors said in a video published on social media on Monday. “Today is the first day that he’s going to be able to get an actual bed. He’s been sleeping on a restraint bed.”

“They’ve also filed for him to be released — filed to the Appellate court,” she continued. “Hopefully we’ll learn by this week, no later than Wednesday, if he’ll get out. And, honestly, we just need folks to keep tagging ‘#FreeJussie,’ keep posting.
In 2019, Smollett fabricated an elaborate lie in a bid to frame Trump’s supporters with a racist hate crime, claiming he was physically assaulted by two men wearing MAGA hats, put a noose around his neck, poured bleach on him, berated him with homophobic and racist slurs and then declared, “This is MAGA country.”
In reality, Smollett staged the hate crime with the assistance of Nigerian brothers Ola and Abel Osundairo.
Last year, the former Empire star was convicted of five felony counts of disorderly conduct.
After two years of litigation, on March 10 Judge James Lin sentenced the race-baiting hoaxer to a light sentence, 150 days in jail, 30 months of probation, restitution of $120,106 and a $25,000 fine.
Despite the hate crimes Smollett committed, Cullors implored “folks to call the jail and check up on him, but also say that you think he should be freed.”
“The last thing is, we need folks to challenge the misinformation and disinformation around this case. That’s so critical,” she added.
