Jussie Smollett Breaks Silence After Charges Against Him Were Dropped

Jussie Smollett is making his first public statement in weeks after it was revealed that the charges were dropped against him in his alleged hate crime case.

“First of all I want to thank my family, my friends, the incredible people of Chicago and all over the country and the world who have prayed for me, who have supported me and who have showed me so much love. No one will ever know how much that has meant to me and I will be forever grateful. I want you to know that not for a moment was it in vain. I have been truthful and consistent on every level since day one. I would not be my mother’s son if I was capable of one drop of what I’ve been accused of,” Jussie said.

He continued, “This has been an incredibly difficult time. Honestly one of the worst of my entire life. But I am a man of faith and I am a man that has knowledge of my history and I would not bring my family, our lives or the movement through a fire like this. I just wouldn’t.”

“Now I’d like nothing more than to get back to work and move on with my life. But make no mistakes, I will always continue to fight for the justice, equality and betterment of marginalized people everywhere. So again thank you for all the support. Thank you for faith and thank you to God. Bless you. Thank you very much,” Jussie concluded.

    To be completely honest, I had a difficult time believing he did the crime. Saw him on TV once or twice. Saw members of his family. He seemed so kind and harmless, like it would be against his values. However, there was the evidence presented to the media…

    I figured he probably has to get back to some kind of work or he’ll lose everything. Some celebs can’t survive a “break” in working. The opportunities won’t come again.

    I hope the truth, and nothing but the truth, is revealed somehow. We’ll just have to wait and see…
