Jussie Smollett has spoken for the first time since he was attacked in Chicago by unknown men.
Speaking with Robin Roberts on an episode of “Good Morning America” that aired on February 14, Smollett said, “I’m pissed off. It’s the attackers, but it’s also the attacks.” He then discussed the attack in vivid detail, describing the racist slurs his attackers used, as well as the fight that ensued and the aftermath.
He also 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.”
