Jussie Smollett stood tall Saturday night as he made his first public appearance since Tuesday’s attack, telling hundreds of fans, “I had to be here tonight. I couldn’t let these motherf*****s win,” reports TMZ.
Jussie performed in WeHo at the famed Troubadour in front of a packed audience of 400 and generally addressed the incident in Chicago. He told the crowd he’s okay and still healing.
At the end of the show, Jussie lit up the stage with a call to action about being black, being gay and being proud.
