Jaboukie Young-White on Jussie Smollett: “If he wanted attention, he should have just leaked his nudes”

“This story has been weird for me, Trevor. As a gay person, I’m used to speaking on gay issues. As a black person, I’m used to speaking on black issues. But I’m not used to them intercepting.

And I’m also part of a third community that’s been devastated by this: the actor community. Because of Jussie, everyone will think actors are liars now, because that’s our job, which is true.

If he wanted to raise awareness for LGBTQ rights, he should have just donated money. If he wanted attention, he should have just leaked his nudes. And if he wanted to hang out with two guys at 2 a.m., Grindr is right there.”Jaboukie Young-White speaking to Trevor Noah about the whole Jussie Smollett mess
