Queen Latifah says she’s standing by Jussie Smollett until she sees “definitive proof” he lied

“Until somebody can show me some proof otherwise, I’m going with him. Cause the guy I’ve seen has always been someone who cares about people, who cares about others, and who’s very kind and who’s always been cool and sweet. And that’s just the guy I know. So until I can see some definitive proof [that he’s lying], which I haven’t seen yet, then, you know, I gotta go with him until I see otherwise.”Queen Latifah speaking to Yahoo! News about Jussie Smollett’s alleged attack.
