Jussie Smollett has given his first interview about the shocking racist and homophobic attack he was subjected to as he walked home from a Subway in Chicago last month at 2am.
The Empire actor spoke to ABC's Robin Roberts for an interview that will air on Good Morning America on Thursday morning.
In a brief promo for the interview, he is seen tearing up after Roberts asked him if he feared for his life at any point during the attack.
It is the first time the 36-year-old himself will answer questions on camera about the incident which shocked the nation and has brought an avalanche of both sympathy and scrutiny Smollett's way.
In the initial aftermath of the attack, Smollett received an outpouring of support from celebrities and fans alike who all condemned the discrimination he was subjected to.
Chicago Police Department launched a frantic hunt for his attackers who he said shouted 'This is MAGA country!' after punching his ribs, pouring bleach on him and tying a noose around his necks.
In the weeks that followed, details of the incident have been picked over forensically.
Despite finding video of Smollett before and after the attack, police have not been able to uncover any surveillance footage of the actual incident and they have not been able to identify the suspects.
They released an initial image of two men walking near Smollett on the night of the incident at around the same time but that led to nothing.

Jussie Smollett cries as he gives his first interview about homophobic, racist attack after hitting out at Chicago police and handing over redacted phone records from the night of the incident
Well, he is an actor afterall....His story has so many holes in it, you could drive a bus through it.
Where are the investigative reporters?
Is this fellow under oath yet?
It didn’t shock me.
If he had liquid poured on him why didn’t he have any frostbite? If it was bleach why not any chemical burns?
He sounds like a fag, Jim. Oh wait, he is one.
Sadly, his falling tears inadvertently resulted in accidental redaction of the most relevant portions of his phone records.
Well, the other end may have been involved....................
The commenters at the Daily Mail arent buying the phony story
Crying.... because he knows he’s going to JAIL!
Note that the MSM is still reporting this obvious hoax as a fact.
The more pieces to this story come out, the more I think it is entirely a fabrication. And he damn well better be held accountable to it.
Can you imagine the questions the “reporters” are going to ask him?
“How does it feel to be a victim of a hate crime?”
“Do you think Trump is to blame for your attack?”
Then they must be tears of JOY!....................
This deal will eventually be parodied even on SNL, in the same way that OJ was.
What a punk!
I don’t watch Empire, but I accidentally saw a few minutes once. It is known for being a ‘black’ cast. I have a good portion of native american blood, my wife is half Sicilian, and both of us are darker than 90% of the ‘black’ actors on the show. Almost all appear to be half white. What’s up with that?
Robin Roberts is such a good soldier in the fight against racism. / s
