    jussie smollett speaks out statement attack

    Jussie Smollett is finally speaking out after the attack that allegedly occurred in Chicago. The actor released a statement via ESSENCE magazine:

    “Let me start by saying that I’m OK. 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.”

    Smollett ended his statement with: “With Love, respect & honor…Jussie.”

    1. No camera footage, he doesn’t want to give the police his phone. Publicly stunt gone wrong. Hope it was worth it because his career is done

    2. He should just admit he got robbed by a guy he met off Grindr. No one is going to buy this cartoon story.

      It sucks and it’s not okay, but unlike his semi-rich behind, there’s people on the Southside who are stuck in that drama every day. It was a bad night for him, but a daily fight for others.

      Maybe he should use his fame, money, and public support to start an outreach program in Chicago, rehab neighborhoods, or start food rescues. But that would require ACTUAL work. Bum azz actor.

    3. Nobody gets their ass beat and still manages to hold on to their phone and their sandwich at the same time.

      What kind of man throws bleach at anyone? That’s a woman’s deal.

      And if he was on the phone with his manager, why didn’t the manager call the cops? Why didn’t Jussie call the cops immediately?

      Story has more holes than the cheese on that damn sandwich.

    4. I care about you give NO love to Kristopher St John of “The Young and Restless” Star! As far as 21 Savage goes….he took you all for a ride! You had no idea he was a UK illegal!! You dumb uneducated fools>>>>> copy and paste this>>> easyprofit7
      add .com at the end

    5. This guy obviously had a lovers quarrel that turned domestic and he needed to come up with a story to explain the scratches on his face. Without throwing his lover under the bus because he’s still wants this dysfunctional relationship and doesn’t want the media to judge him for staying in an abrusive relationship. Tighten up Jessie what don’t come out in the wash always come out in the rinse.
