'Saturday Night Live' Mocks Chris Redd's Jussie Smollett Crying Wolf

This time his clues include teeth whitening stripes and three red-letter Ks.

The “Saturday Night Live” cast didn’t cut Jussie Smollett any slack in its snarky takedown of Chris Redd’s version of the “Empire” actor claiming he had been the victim of a racist and homophobic attack in late January in Chicago.

The “SNL” sketch took place at a faux meeting of Fox executives to discuss “Smollett’s” future after Chicago police officials said he filed a false report on the alleged incident — only to have prosecutors drop charges against him last week.

“Jussie Smollett was a victim!” insisted Sandra Oh, playing “Smollett’s” manager.

“Oh please,” retorted “executive” Kate McKinnon.

Redd, late, then rushed in, breathlessly exclaiming: “Guys, you are not going to believe what just happened to me. I was attacked again.” 

He displayed “clues” about his attackers, including a box of teeth whitening strips, the red letters KKK, and the “gay” teletubby.

He’s fired — only to return with another attack tale.

Fans on Twitter had a very mixed reaction. Some loved it, while others found it harsh.
