Queen Latifah Explains Why She Still Stands By Jussie Smollett

Queen Latifah says she still stands by Jussie Smollett, even after the actor was accused of staging a hate crime on himself.

The Oscar-nominated actress opened up to Zainab Salbi on the Yahoo series Through Her Eyes.

“The guy I’ve seen has always been someone who cares about people, who cares about others, and who’s very kind and who’s always been cool and sweet,” she said. “And that’s just the guy I know. So until I can see some definitive proof — which I haven’t seen yet — then, you know, I gotta go with him until I see otherwise.”

“I don’t even know what to make of it,” she added. “All I know is that I hope everything works out in the end and everybody basically comes out unscathed.”
