Jussie Smollett dropped a statement on his state, and tried to clarify a few things. The Empire star wants people to know (or think) that he is telling the truth about the alleged MAGA hate crime . Jussie Smollett was attacked at 2am in Chicago last week. Reportedly Jussie had a noose put around his neck , and leach poured on him by the attackers.
Alot of people including us think Jussie’s story isn’t adding up, and some details are a little hazy. See why we think so here.
Jussie spoke with Essence Magazine and said:
“Let me start by saying that I’m OK,” Smollett wrote. “My body is strong but my soul is stronger. More importantly I want to say thank you. The outpouring of love and support from my village has meant more than I will ever be able to truly put into words. I am working with authorities and have been 100% factual and consistent on every level. Despite my frustrations and deep concern with certain inaccuracies and misrepresentations that have been spread, I still believe that justice will be served. ”
“As my family stated, these types of cowardly attacks are happening to my sisters, brothers and non-gender conforming siblings daily. I am not and should not be looked upon as an isolated incident. We will talk soon and I will address all details of this horrific incident, but I need a moment to process. Most importantly, during times of trauma, grief and pain, there is still a responsibility to lead with love. It’s all I know. And that can’t be kicked out of me.”

Jussie has a performance scheduled for Saturday, and most likely he will address it there as well. What a coincidence. Rapped Out.
