Jussie Smollett Breaks His Silence After Vicious Attack

Jussie Smollett Breaks His Silence After Vicious Attack

Since news broke of the alleged vicious attack on Jussie Smollett in Chicago earlier this week, everyone's spoken out about it--his fans, his co-stars, his family. But now, for the 1st time since the attack, Jussie is speaking out himself. In a statement, here's what the "Empire" star had to say...

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
With Love, respect & honor…Jussie.
