2. SOUNDBITE (English) Kenan Thompson, actor - on Jussie Smollett:
"I mean, I don't know. That story is so crazy, like, now it's coming out that he said he might have set it up or whatever. So I don't - man, I wish I knew what the truth was, because everybody is so quick to jump on one side or the other, you know, before the actual facts come out, and some people, you know, are left holding the bag even though they were reaching out with love. And I think the same thing. I reached out and I was like, 'Stop the madness,' and all of that, you know, just because I had heard, and I had also seen all the, like, reaching out and love that he was getting or whatever. So I felt like, you know, me being a fellow Mighty Duck, and him being an ex-Mighty Duck, like, I should, like, extend my hand and that kind of, like, hope, you know, stop the madness type of thing, as well. But now it's like the story is turning and it's starting to look kind of negative, so I don't know. It's like, I wish there was a way for people to get all of the facts first, but I don't even think that's possible."

4. SOUNDBITE (English) Roy Wood Jr., actor-host - on Jussie Smollett:
"I don't know if Jussie Smollett is being treated unfairly, but I do wish the Chicago PD had the same transparency with everything that goes on in their department as they have with this Jussie Smollett case. We get a Jussie Smollett update every 30 minutes. You get a Jussie Smollett update scrolling across the bottom of the TV like a damn sports score, but you ask them a question about some police misconduct (zips mouth). I hope if nothing else out of this Jussie Smollett incident, this is a new level of transparency that we get from the Chicago Police Department on all ongoing investigations, not just the ones where you think somebody gave you the runaround."

6. SOUNDBITE (English) Michael Moore, director - on Jussie Smollett:
"We live in a crazy time, and if you are African-American, if you're a woman, if you're an immigrant, you still have this fight, this fight of, because those in power are not, are not you. So until that changes, and it will change... It is changing, you know - nearly 70 percent of this country now is either female, people of color or young people. That's about 67 percent of the country, or a combination of those three things. That's who America really is."
