it’s pretty alarming the amount of controversy theories about jussie smollett.
the gp is split in half.
one side believes he was attacked a couple days ago.
the other side believes he is making it up/not telling the truth.
when i first heard it,
i’ll admit i felt he was set up.
it sounded too “planned”,
but not once did i question the validity of his claims.
i felt he was attacked,
but my inner fox wanted to sniff out an answer.
well jussie spoke out with a statement via publicist to “essence” today.
this is what he had to font…
“Let me start by saying that I’m O.K. 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 percent 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.”
the thing is:
Why would he lie?
what would he have to gain?
he isn’t problematic.
he minds his business and uses his powers for good.
his career and reputation would be in shambles.
his story doesn’t seem to change,
as much as the others who have reported around him.
i feel like some don’t believe him because he’s black and gay.
if he was white and gay,
the narrative would be really different.
maybe even black and straight.
it’s hard to believe,
but how many blacks have been hung down south?
maybe they thought they could get away with it,
because it was cold and no one would be around?
this situation has opened my eyes to a lot of things and people tho.
i hope you peeped who may/may not have your back.
