Jussie Smollett has made her first red carpet appearance in nearly two years. The actor, who was discredited in early 2019 for making a false report, attended a screening of his directorial debut B-Boy Blues in New York.
On Instagram, 39-year-old Smollett looked back on the evening and thanks everyone for the enthusiastic reactions. “It is insanely beautiful to feel all the love for this film,” said the actor. He hopes that the film can be seen in more places around the world soon.
Smollett is also still involved in a lawsuit. The actor claimed he had been the victim of a homophobic, racist attack on the street. According to the police and prosecutors, he staged the attack, something he himself denies. The city of Chicago sued him for filing a fake report.
