Tyler Perry is now speaking out about the Curious Case of Jussie Smollett.
The entertainment mogul took to Instagram to share that he’s personally spoken to the “Empire” star and Jussie reassured him that he’s telling the truth.
But, Tyler is torn because he says the “evidence seems to state otherwise” and that he’s “lost for words.”
Mr. Perry, like many others, also stated he wishes other cases could garner the attention this case has received.
Read his full statement below.
How I wish that the disappearance of Terrance Williams and Felipe Santos could get half as much attention as this Jussie Smollett thing. I have personally spoken to Jussie, and he is adamant that he’s telling the truth.
Also, everyone that I know who knows him says that he is not the kind of person who would make up such a horrible and awful thing. Yet the evidence seems to state otherwise. I’m lost for words. To stoke fears and raise racial tensions is wrong in every situation on ALL SIDES! Y
et my prayers are still with him and his family and our Nation. CAN WE PLEASE STOP THE HATE!
