Actress Ellen Page blamed Vice President Mike Pence for an alleged hate crime that turned out to be a hoax. However, Page appears to not be backing down even though it has been proven to be a hoax.

According to The Daily Wire:

Two days after "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett claimed he was the victim of a hate crime perpetrated by two white supporters of President Donald Trump, actress Ellen Page appeared on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" and blamed Vice President Mike Pence for the attack.

...

With all this new information, surely Ms. Page is sorry for jumping to conclusions, sorry for telling millions of Americans that Pence is responsible for the attack because of his Christian faith, right?

Wrong.

In fact, in her first time speaking out with regard to Smollett since the new revelations in the case, Page doubled-down on her activism and acknowledged her own “privilege” as a “white cisgender woman,” but notably left out any apology for perpetuating the apparent hoax on national TV, nor did she offer any apology to Mr. Pence.

It appears that the truth is not important when it harms your narrative.
