Taraji P. Henson Breaks Silence on What Happened to Jussie Smollett

Taraji P. Henson is speaking out for the first time on the suspected hate crime that occurred against her Empire co-star Jussie Smollett.

“I wish what happened to my baby was just one big bad joke but it wasn’t and we all feel his pain right now. @jussiesmollett is pure love to the bone AND THAT IS WHY SO MANY ARE FEELING HIS PAIN BECAUSE IT IS OUR PAIN!!!” Taraji posted on Instagram.

Taraji continued, “I tell you one thing HATE WILL NOT WIN!!!! My baby is resilient and love still lives in him. The devil and his minions are very busy right now but one thing is for sure and two things are for certain #GODIS and that is all I know. This song needs to be downloaded until it goes triple platinum because the message is NEEDED. #weareresilientpeople AND #weaintgoingnowhereuntillwearefinished. The love so many have him just goes to show HE IS LOVE!!!! I LOVE YOU MY BABY MY BABY!!! #LOVEWINSALWAYS.”

Jussie was attacked in the early morning hours of Tuesday (January 29) by 2 unidentified individuals who hurt him, put a noose around his neck, and poured a substance on him.

Empire star Terrence Howard also spoke out for the first time today.

Our continued thoughts are with Jussie during this time.

    he’s her baby? police can’t find any proof any of this happened yet everyone is just supposed to believe.

    I mean,this sucks and all,but I dunno if I would define this as a homophobic attack.. In his interviews he said he’s gay but wants to sleep with women and that he’s sexually fluid (whatever that means). I wouldn’t say he’s gay,only confused.

    Gimme a break. He’s widely known as not being straight, I didn’t know he was “sexually fluid” until you just said it. People are twisting themselves into a pretzel trying to deem this anything other than what it is…a homophobic & racist attack.
