Jussie Smollett Breaks Silence in FIRST Interview Since Release from Jail, Maintains Innocence

Published: Tuesday 21st Jun 2022 by Sam

Jussie Smollett is turning the volume up.

The ‘Empire’ actor has spent three years embroiled in a mucky legal mess after being charged, convicted, and ultimately jailed for faking a hate attack in 2019.

Now, following his surprise release pending an appeal, the star is attempting to re-affix the focus on his craft. Namely his critically acclaimed directorial debut, ‘B-Boy Blues’ – which is currently streaming on BET+.

In a move few could have foreseen, Smollett has hit the promotional trail. And his first stop was Sway in the Morning.

The lengthy sit-down saw Smollett – who turned 40 today – maintain his innocence, share how his experience allowed him to “see the snakes in the grass,” talk ‘B-Boy Blues,’ and much more.

    Comments for the video are turned off of course. They have a narrative to control.

    You know Hollyweird is DEAD when they are latching onto D-list celebrities and weirdos like LNX for content. These are ALL losers who are extremely cringy and embarrassing.
