Terrence Howard Says Jussie Smollett is “Angry” After Attack

Terrence Howard spoke out about the attack on his Empire co-star Jussie Smollett. Chicago Police said Smollett was physically attacked early Tuesday morning by two men who yelled racial and homophobic slurs at him.  Speaking on Good Morning America, Howard said when he heard about the assault, “Jaws dropped to the ground.” Howard continued, “Then when we learned there had been letters that had been sent to Fox as threats about the potential of something like this … then we became much more frightened.” As for Smollett’s condition, Howard said, “You know, he’s angry, but I know Jussie. Jussie’s anger will dissipate and he will forgive these people for what they did. But he won’t — and we cannot — forget their actions. They have to be forgiven because it was done out of ignorance.”
