Very strong. And it wasn’t just the video itself, either.
In the comments section of that IG post, Howard continued to defend Smollett, including at one point writing this to a fan (below):
“Sorry you feel that way but that’s the only Jussie I know. The Jussie I know could never even conceive of something so unconscious and ugly. His innocence or judgment is not for any of us to decide. Stay in your lane and my lane is empathy and love and compassion for someone I’ve called my son for five years. It’s God’s job to judge and it’s ours to love and hope, especially for those that we claim to have loved.”
Reactions, Perezcious readers?
