Terrence Howard Breaks Silence After Jussie Smollett's Suspected Hate Crime Attack

Terrence Howard is breaking his silence on the horrific suspected hate crime against his Empire co-star Jussie Smollett.

“I heard he’s getting better. You know, he’s angry. But I know Jussie. Jussie’s anger will dissipate and he will forgive these people for what they did. But he won’t, and we cannot, forget their actions. They have to be forgiven because it was done out of ignorance,” Terrence said on Wednesday’s appearance on GMA. “Jussie’s the one that starts singing when everybody’s in a bad mood. He’s the one that cheers everybody up. He’s the one that does all the Instagrams if he catches you sleeping. Today, no one was caught sleeping. No one even took time to close their eyes and nap. They were all in shock that our family — you know, the Fox family, the Empire family, the Lyon family — were attacked by a bunch of hyenas today.”

Our continued thoughts are with Jussie as he heals.
