Jussie Smollett Breaks His Silence After Attack

Smollett reiterated in his statement that he is working with the authorities to bring his attackers to justice, which he believes is possible even with "frustrations and deep concern with certain inaccuracies and misrepresentations that have been spread". "We want to be clear, this was a racial and homophobic hate crime". 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", he concluded his statement.

"As my family stated, these types of cowardly attacks are happening to my sisters, brothers and non-gender conforming siblings daily". It's all I know.

Smollett signed his statement by writing, "With Love, respect & honor..."

Smollett's family released a statement in support of the actor and addressed rumors about the truthfulness of the attack.

Kevin Hart is defending his decision to show support for Empire star Jussie Smollett, who was the victim of a racist and homophobic attack earlier this week. Jussie has told the police everything from the very beginning.

We truly hope the men responsible are caught.

"Our family thanks everyone for their prayers and the huge amount of love he has received". "Jussie is a warrior whose light can not be dimmed". Oftentimes ending fatally, these are inhumane acts of domestic terrorism and they should be treated as such.

As previously reported, a source told ET that Smollett was walking around Chicago when two men started yelling racial and homophobic slurs at him, before repeatedly hitting him. Smollett then transported himself to an area hospital. There was also a noose found around the actor's neck, and he was covered in an unknown substance, which many say was bleach.

The actor also told police that the perpetrators referenced President Trump's rallying cry, "Make America Great Again", during the attack, per The Hollywood Reporter. Additionally, ET has learned that Smollett is cooperating with police and the ongoing investigation.
