I have to say, I didn’t see this coming. I thought you’d want to hear what both sides are saying about the charges against Jussie Smollett being dropped.

The mayor was pretty fired up!

Here’s what Smollett had to say:

So why did this happen? Here’s part of an article from CNN:

The Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office didn’t immediately explain why the 16 counts of felony disorderly conduct were dropped, except to say it came after reviewing the case’s facts, and in view of Smollett’s agreement to forfeit his $10,000 bond. Parts of the case will be sealed, one of Smollett’s attorneys said.

“After reviewing all of the facts and circumstances of the case, including Mr. Smollett’s volunteer service in the community and agreement to forfeit his bond to the City of Chicago, we believe this outcome is a just disposition and appropriate resolution to this case,” the state’s attorney’s office said in a statement.
Seems pretty shady! Can’t wait to hear more about what happened here.
