The actor was sentenced to 150 days of jail time and 30 months probation on Thursday after being found guilty of felony disorderly conduct for lying to police about a racist and homophobic attack he staged on himself in Chicago in January 2019.

Using the hashtag #freejussie on Instagram on Sunday, Taraji insisted Jussie has been punished enough and didn't deserve to be incarcerated. "I am not here to debate you on his innocence but we can agree that the punishment does not fit the crime."
