Chicago officials said Thursday they will sue US television actor Jussie Smollett because he refused to repay costs associated with investigating the alleged hate crime hoax he is accused of orchestrating. The black, openly gay actor has denied accusations that he hired two acquaintances to stage a racist and homophobic attack in order to gain publicity. The case’s resolution, which prosecutors said was similar to thousands of other low-level offenses handled in Chicago courts, caused widespread outrage and led President Donald Trump to declare federal investigators would look into the case.
