Ellen Page Breaks Her Silence After Jussie Smollett Investigation Developments

Ellen Page is speaking out about Jussie Smollett after going viral for her thoughts on the alleged hate crime back before all the new developments. If you missed it, police now believe Jussie staged the whole crime over his Empire salary.

The 32-year-old actress penned a guest column for THR, writing, “The conversation around Jussie Smollett has led us all to examine hate violence and its implications and aftermath. I had no reason to doubt Jussie. My work on Gaycation — the docuseries I produced to chronicle LGBTQ+ stories from around the world — introduced me to many survivors of hate violence. I know how prevalent and pernicious it can be. If this situation was staged, it could make victims even more reluctant to report these crimes. Very real crimes.”

She continued, “While the media and public debate the case and await more information, we must not lose sight of the very real, endemic violence that LGBTQ+ people, people of color and other underrepresented communities face every day.”

“I ask you not to question our pain, not to draw into question our trauma, but to maintain, wholeheartedly, that hate violence exists. The merits of one case should not and cannot call that into question. The media coverage does not convey the reality and totality of the cruelty and danger we face. This is the story that must be told,” Ellen added.

    Jussie Smollett wanted to start a race war.

    And DemocRATS and the liberal media were co-conspirators.

    it’s that kind of thinking that caused postal workers to shoot up places.

  • Maria M.

    She needs to shut up!

  • mahbelle

    yeah, i was breathlessly waiting for this whiny twit’s response to the Jussie Smollett HOAX. ellen page is beyond annoying. just go away or quit complaining.

  • mahbelle

    this one will never shut up. it’s the only attention she gets.

  • mike

    “I too am a moron who will not let the facts stand in my way while I promote the race war narrative”- Ellen

  • Fletcher

    She’s such a disgusting, hypocritical, raging thundercunt I expect her to have a Marvel/Disney franchise any day now. She’s trying to activist her way back into a blockbuster career by hating everyone. Not that I don’t think the hate is genuine, LGBT activists are some of the most intolerant, hateful people on the planet who project their actions and mentality onto those they want to destroy.

  • Patrick Perry

    “Breaks her silence…” = Finally admits, I mean doesn’t admit, that she is still wrong.

  • J.K.

    lmao, so because “everybody” experiences hate crimes they should shut up about it? you’re unbelievable.

  • J.K.

    She already has a blockbuster career, try again.

  • J.K.

    This site is slowly becoming the TMZ comments section: a bigoted cesspool.

  • J White

    She is a degenerate and an arrogant butch.

  • MyName

    Slowly? It happened long ago. My ignore list is already long.

  • mahbelle

    blockbuster career???? she’s been in some successful movies but they weren’t successful because of her.

  • mahbelle

    Why? Because people don’t like this whiny brat?

  • Fletcher

    Dear lord, you’re a delusional moron. If you stretched the term “blockbuster career” to the thinnest possible definition you could claim she had one 12 years ago. With 1 film. I know you can’t be informed or reasoned with or you wouldn’t be a leftist. Good luck with that retardation.

  • Wisper

    Talks about hate, however, spewed hate against the Pres. and VP along with the other bottom feeders in Hollyweird; than has the audacity to lecture us? Seriously, just STFU.

  • EastCoastJ

    Just apologize you silly thing.

  • J.K.

    You kiss your progenitor with that mouth?

  • Fletcher

    Man that’s a dumbass thing to type. It’s too stupid to deserve a response but I figure you have nobody in your life, especially nobody in your life trying to help correct your retarded ass. So I’m helping once.

  • Weasel

    Ellen you poor mindless twit. Just apologize.
    You look like an imbecile

  • Weasel

    Sure Ellen

  • Adri562a90na

    I understand why Lainey has no comment section now

  • Catwoman

    Hope this liberal never does a major movie ever again! Glad she hasn’t in so long.

  • J.K.

    you made a response lolol bye

  • Richard

    Gee Ellen…..did you ever think that the “rage” in people over LGBTWTF MIGHT JUST be because people like you and the #FAKENEWS are CONSTANTLY throwing it in our face 24 hours a day?????
