Jussie Smollett makes his first appearance post the homophobic attack, performs at a concert
It’s 2019 and there is no room for homophobia. But then there are a few who still can’t accept homosexuality as a part of society and try to ruin the lives of homosexuals in every possible way. Quite recently, singer Jussie Smollett became a victim of the hatred when he was attacked by two men on Tuesday morning in Chicago, shortly after the lad walked out of a Subway outlet. The homophobes shouted racial and homophobic slurs at the singer and also tied a rope around his neck. Not just that, they also threw an unknown chemical substance on him. But it came as a sigh to relief to learn that he was safe despite incurring some injuring. Now, as per the latest development, one realises that this episode has not hampered the singer's enthusiasm as he performed at a concert.
Making his first public appearance after the attack, Smollett performed at the Troubador in West Hollywood on Saturday where he expressed his heart out to fans with regards to the January 29 attack. "And above all, I fought the fuck back,” he said to the crowd and then he paused and added, emphatically, “I’m the gay Tupac.” "I had to be here tonight, y’all. I couldn’t let those m*therf*ck*rs win,” he addressed, to the room of 400 people. “I will always stand for love. I will only stand for love,” he added further.
