Jussie Smollett: Judge calls alleged hate hoax 'despicable'

A Chicago judge has said charges that US actor Jussie Smollett staged a hoax hate crime against himself are "utterly outrageous" and "despicable" if true.

The 36-year-old African-American actor is accused of filing a fake police report claiming he was the victim of a homophobic and racist assault.

Judge John Fitzgerald Lyke, who is also black, said the "most vile" part of the incident was the use of a noose.
