Jussie Smollett claims he didn’t stage a hate crime against himself.

However, a jury convicted him of lying to police earlier this year.

The tide of public opinion has turned against the former “Empire” actor.

However, Jussie insists that he is still innoncent.

What’s more, he claims that everyone knows that.

On Wednesday morning, he appeared on Sway’s SiriusXM radio show.

He said that if he did lie, he’d be a “total piece of s---” and he says he’s not.

He said that if he lied, he’d be exploiting the pain of the Black and LGBTQ community.

“I’m not that motherf---er,” Smollett said.
