Jussie Smollett Speaks Out For First Time Since Attack1 month ago by Amber Le in Trending
Ever since Jussie Smollett’s attack, the nation came together with demands to their questions as to who committed a hate crime towards the Empire actor. The details of the violent attack included tying a noose around his neck, bleach being poured on him while wearing a red MAGA hat. To make matters worse, the police department claimed he was not participating in the investigation, having people question whether or not the incident even happened. Smollett finally broke his silence today and he has a lot to say regarding people’s reactions as he sat down with Robin Roberts of ABC News.
“I’m pissed off. It’s not necessarily that you don’t believe that this is the truth, you don’t even want to see the truth.”
He then went on to address the people who think he is lying about his attackers screaming “This is MAGA country.”
“They called me a f****, they called me a n****. There’s no which way you can cut it. I don’t need some MAGA hat as the cherry on top of some racist sundae.”
