Celebrity reactions to Smollett's lies were immediate, as many were greatly disappointed and upset that the 36 year old star made a fool out of them. Initially, celebrities actually rushed to his support, when the news of his attack emerged. But now, with the truth? finally coming out, they have come out in droves to lash out at the actor on social media.

In a shocking twist of events, Smollett was arrested on Thursday for filing a false police report when he told authorities he was attacked in Chicago by two men who hurled racist and anti-gay slurs at him, while looping a rope around his neck; lunching style.

Police released an official statement that the actor staged the attack. Why? Well, because Smollett was unhappy about his present salary on hit TV show Empire, and wanted to promote his career with this sickly and false kind of publicity.

The incredible revelations by the police, sparked immediate backlash from the celebrities who had publicly supported him just  weeks earlier.

Rapper 50 Cent mocked  Smollett and his recent Tupac reference with an Instagram photo of the actor's face imposed on the cover of the late iconic rapper's album, saying: 'All Liez On Me'

Actor and comedian Tyler Perry took a more neutral approach. He penned a lengthy Facebook post saying he had personally spoken to Smollett who insisted he was telling the truth.

However, Perry added that the evidence seemed to contradict Smollett's version and that he was 'lost for words'.

'I have personally spoken to Jussie, and he is adamant that he's telling the truth. Also, everyone that I know who knows him says that he is not the kind of person who would make up such a horrible and awful thing,' he said.

'Yet the evidence seems to state otherwise. I'm lost for words. To stoke fears and raise racial tensions is wrong in every situation on ALL SIDES! Yet my prayers are still with him and his family and our Nation.'

 Ice Cube's son, Straight Outta Compton actor O'Shea Jackson Jr, was less lenient. In a scathing series of lengthy tweets, he made his feeling known about the development.

O'Shea Jackson was really upset about Smollett's lies
'What upsets me about this Jussie situation is that people were genuinely worried about you man. And the things that you said happened could have led to some serious outcomes. People were prepared to fight for you bruh. Things coulda got ugly...... and you made it up.

'The world has plenty of real monsters. You don't have to make up any. And what for? Just further dividing people for personal gain? It sucks for the people who actually have to deal with that type of hate.

'And why did you call yourself the gay Tupac. What does Tupac have to do with anything that happened to you? Did you do this to sell records bro? Did you fake a hate crime, Enrage the Black community. The LBGT community and anti-Trump community just to sell records bruh?

Is he telling the truth? Jussie Smollett whose career is taking a huge hit at the moment, is standing his ground, even though evidence shows he is lying.
