Jussie Smollett has officially been charged with disorderly conduct for filing a false police report concerning his earlier attack. However, the case continues to take very interesting turns and the FBI carries out its own investigation.

Nike has released a limited edition Kaepernick Icon Jersey #Trueto7 available on the brand’s website in men’s sizes Small – 3XL at $150 each.
