Jussie Smollett has a message for the doubters

Amid conspiracy theories that he may have misrepresented his incident, Jussie Smollett spoke out for the first time since the racist and homophobic attack against him.

“Let me start by saying that I’m OK,” Smollett told Essence in a Friday statement. “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.” Smollett also addressed the skepticism about the attack, telling Essence that he has been “100 percent factual and consistent on every level” with authorities.

“Despite my frustrations and deep concern with certain inaccuracies and misrepresentations that have been spread, I still believe that justice will be served,” he said. The “Empire” actor said he will address the specifics of the “horrific incident” soon, but he needed time to process the experience. “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,” Smollett said. “We will talk soon and I will address all details of this horrific incident, but I need a moment to process,” he concluded. “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.”
