Jussie Smollett says he’s angry at critics casting doubt on alleged hate crime

Jussie Smollett filed a report with the Chicago Police Department on Jan. 29 after two men allegedly hurled racist and homophobic slurs before they beat him.

«Empire» actor Jussie Smollett said he is «pissed off» after critics cast doubt over an alleged hate crime against the actor last month.

The Chicago Police Department said they are investigating the alleged attack as a possible hate crime.

The 36-year-old actor, who is openly gay, told ABC’s «Good Morning America» in a promotional clip released Wednesday that he was angry about the attack and at people who do not to believe his claims, nbcnews.com reports.
