Jussie Smollett Won't Let Assault Stop Performance


This week actor Jussie Smollett was brutally assaulted near his apartment in Chicago in a suspected hate crime [click here if you missed that].

Despite the harrowing incident Jussie will perform tonight at a previously scheduled concert...

Jussie's PR team confirms he will be performing for his sold out show at the Troubadour in West Hollywood tonight, but a meet and greet before the show has been canceled.

Jussie tells Essence Magazine,
“Let me start by saying that I’m OK. My body is strong but my soul is stronger. More importantly I want to say thank you. The outpouring of love and support from my village has meant more than I will ever be able to truly put into words.”
“I am working with authorities and have been 100% factual and consistent on every level. Despite my frustrations and deep concern with certain inaccuracies and misrepresentations that have been spread, I still believe that justice will be served. ”
“As my family stated, these types of cowardly attacks are happening to my sisters, brothers and non-gender conforming siblings daily. I am not and should not be looked upon as an isolated incident. We will talk soon and I will address all details of this horrific incident, but I need a moment to process. Most importantly, during times of trauma, grief and pain, there is still a responsibility to lead with love. It’s all I know. And that can’t be kicked out of me.”

He received a letter threatening his life... and he's about to do a concert? He says the people who beat him are still out there. No arrests, but he's ok, mentally?

He's a liar.

Enjoy your sold out concert, Jussie. I no longer like you.
