Jussie Smollett Seems to Address Staged Hate Crime in New Song

April 11, 2022

Jussie Smollett has released a new song. The former "Empire" star, who was released from jail pending the appeal of his conviction for lying to cops about a racist and homophobic attack he said he suffered, seems to address it in the single. The video begins with text that reads, “Channeling these thoughts the best way I know how, I love you.” Smollett says he is donating 100% of the song's profits to non-profits and community groups. Inside Edition Digital’s Stephanie Officer has the details.
