Gay, black, Jewish artist strikes emotional note at first concert since assault

Jussie Smollett was blunt, emotional and defiantly determined on Saturday night at a southern California concert, he told the crowd before singing a note that he had to go on with the show because he couldn't let his attackers win.

Those in attendance at the Troubadour included Rep. Maxine Waters, filmmaker Lee Daniels and actor Wilson Cruz.

That area of downtown Chicago has many hotels and restaurants and has widespread surveillance video coverage, and although police have found footage of Smollett making his way home - including video of him arriving at his building with a rope around his neck - they haven't found footage of the attack or men fitting his description of his assailants.

He also said, "I'm not fully healed yet but I'm going to and I'm going to stand strong with y'all".

Needless to say, the doubts surrounding the attack pale in comparison to the love and support Smollett is receiving for his bravery. "I couldn't let those motherf-kers win", he said to cheers in the audience. He added he wasn't hospitalized though he did go to the doctor, and that medical examiners cleared him to perform. Take love back because that's all that we have ...

Chicago Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi has released photos of people of interest in the alleged assault.

The incident, which is now being investigated as a hate crime, caused a lot of worry amongst his followers and the general public. "I sincerely wanted him to stay out of the public [eye] until he heals". The most important thing that I can say is thank you so much and that I'm okay. And I'm gonna stand strong with y'all.

Smollett stars alongside Terence and Taraji P. Henson in "Empire", the Fox TV show about the power struggles of a family in the music business that is now in its fifth season.

Jussie Smollett gave his first live performance in Los Angeles since being attacked by two "MAGA supporters".

At some point during the altercation, one of the offenders wrapped a rope around Smollett's neck before fleeing the scene. "My body is strong and my soul is stronger. The outpouring of love and support from my village has meant more than I will ever be able to truly put into words". "Soon I will address all details of this horrific incident, but I need a moment to process".

Smollett plays Jamal Lyon in Empire, which is now in its fifth season on Fox. The offenders then became physically violent, battering the actor with their hands and pouring an "unknown chemical substance" on him, per the CPD.
