‘Law & Order: SVU‘ is ready to take on Jussie Smollett’s racism hoax with an episode set to air…tonight.
Full story below…
Smollett has been in legal turmoil after he faced claims that he teamed up with two Nigerian fitness experts to stage a hate crime and assign blame to Donald Trump loyalists.
Evidence which emerged in the weeks which followed served to discredit his upsetting story.
Now, ‘SVU’ is ready to use the story to build one of its own.
The episode will air as part of the show’s 21st season.
This isn’t the first time the series has taken on a true story.
