CelebNMusic247.com reports that Jussie Smollett hadn’t posted anything until the 28th, which was one day before he reported being the victim of a racist and homophobic assault.
Jussie Smollett shared a clip of a speech given by the writer at the Tony Awards on Sunday (09.06.19).
The 36-year-old actor captioned the video:
So much #PRIDE (sic)
In the video post you hear the writer at the Tony Awards say:
… In ‘Choir Boy,’ set in the fictive Charles R. Drew Prep School for Boys, we chronicle the moment when a black queer kid, Pharus, tries to use their gift of song to uphold his great legacy of spirituals and the moment his community accepted his gift but diminished his light.
The bodies that uphold the great legacy of spirituals are often black and queer. When will we love all of them for who they are, not just for what they can do?
Since all the drama with Smollett, he has continued to maintain his innocence insisting that he hasn’t done anything wrong.
Speaking shortly after the charges were dropped, he said:
I’ve been truthful and consistent on every single 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.
