Empire Actor, Jussie Smollett Speaks After Attack In Chicago (Video)



Empire series star actor, Jussie Smollett, has spoken for the first time after he was attacked in Chicago by unknown men.

Naija News had earlier reported that the actor was hospitalised after an apparent hate crime in Chicago, United States.

Smollett while speaking with Robin Roberts on an episode of “Good Morning America” said, “I’m pissed off. It’s the attackers, but it’s also the attacks.”

He gave details about the attack, described the racist slurs his attackers used and the fight that ensued aftermath.

He called out people who have doubted his story; “It feels like if I had said it was a Muslim, or a Mexican, or someone black, I feel like the doubters would have supported me much more. A lot more,” he said. “And that says a lot about the place that we are in our country right now.”
