“Last Monday my purpose was to bring awareness to a cause left unheard; to get the backlash has been very heartbreaking, to be painted like a monster; everyone knows I love my horses,” Hollingsworth said after the appearance Wednesday. Hollingsworth’s lawyer is calling on Mayor Lori Lightfoot, Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx, and even actor Mr. T to help his client clear his name. “He is inspired by Mr. T; I call upon Mr. T to please reach out to us. What Mr. T did with muscles and chains, my client is doing with western cowboy culture,” attorney Jonathan Feldman said.
Prosecutors declined to comment Wednesday.
