Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) ignored reporters’ questions about embattled “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett after leaving an event with Reverend Al Sharpton in Harlem on Thursday.

Last month, Smollett alleged that he had been the victim of a hate crime, which caused Harris and some other 2020 Democratic presidential candidates to politicize the alleged attack.

Now, police allege Smollett orchestrated the attack because he was unsatisfied with his television show salary.

Harris called the attack at the time a “modern day lynching:”

Several reporters were waiting outside of Harris’s event with Sharpton, and when the 2020 hopeful emerged, they began asking her for comments about Smollett’s case, which she ignored.

Harris hugged Sharpton before asking him to open the car door for her while reporters continued to ask her for comment about the Smollett case. Harris continued ignoring their questions.

Earlier this week, Harris struggled when reporters in New Hampshire asked her about the case, and on Thursday, the Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Jackson blasted 2020 Democratic presidential candidates for jumping to conclusions about the case before Chicago police had an opportunity to finish their investigation.
