There has been a lot of speculation about the details surrounding his attack. Jussie appeared on GMA this morning to tell his side.
In the weeks since Jussie Smollett’s reportedly the racist and homophobic hate attack, there have been a fair share of doubters. The people who don’t believe his story have no reason not to, except that the details surrounding it have changed quite a bit. The thing is none of these details came from Jussie’s mouth. Now he is finally speaking out. He spoke to Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts in an emotional interview.
“I’m pissed off” he stays matter of factly. Roberts asks what is it that has him so angry. “Its the attackers but its also the attacks,” he continues. Then he explains, “How do you not believe that? Its the truth…Then it became of like… It’s not necessarily that you don’t believe that this is the truth, you don’t even want to see the truth.”
Yesterday it was reported that Smollett turned his phone records into police but they were later rejected because they were handed over in a pdf format that authorities say could easily have been tampered with. No word yet if he will resubmit them.
