It is outrageous that an actor would stage a hate crime in order to boost his careerIt has been reported that Smollett earned around $20,000 per episode, while co-stars Terrance Howard and Taraji P.

He is a fairly new actor compared to his co-stars Terrance Howard and Taraji P. Henson. So was greed really the inspiration of this attack or Smollett’s hate for President Trump and his supporters?
