Jussie's need to stick to his meal plan was supposedly the reason for his late outing.
As we know, all charges against Jussie Smollett have been dropped in the case that alleged him to have staged a racial and homophobic attack on himself. The move has sparked all kinds of reactions towards the Empire actor, including the Chicago mayor who called it a "whitewash of justice."
"Do I think justice was served? No. What do I think justice is? I think this city is still owed an apology," Chicago Police Eddie Johnson said. "I've heard that they wanted their day in court with TV cameras so America could know the truth and know they tried to hide behind secrecy to broker a deal to circumvent the judicial system."
Jussie's attorney has now gone on record to share her theory for one of the questionable parts of the case, surrounding Jussie being out late in Chicago (with no security) on the night of the attack. Tina Glandian explained on the Today show that Jussie had been in contact with the Osundairo brothers about a training session, but since his flight was delayed, it was pushed back a day. Tina explained how the brothers told him to stick to his nutrition plan that required eggs, but since he didn't have any he ran out to get some. Jussie stated in his first interview after the attack that Walgreens was closed so he went to Subway instead. The latter is the reason the brothers knew where he was, pinning them as the suspects.
