Disgraced Empire Actor Sentenced To Work In Around-A-Pound


Disgraced American actor famous for his role in the hit series ‘Empire’ has been ordered by an American court to do community service in Newry’s Around-A-Pound we can reveal.

Jussie Smollett who set-up an attack on himself and then claimed it was a homophobic attack was sentenced this morning in a Los Angeles courtroom.

However Amnesty International told Newry Spud:

“This is quite a severe and unusually harsh punishment. To be sent to Newry is one thing but to then have to work in Around-A-Pound is something we cannot sit back and watch happen to a human being.”
