June 25, 2019

New video footage obtained by TMZ shows actor Jussie Smollett with a noose still around his neck more than 40 minutes after his alleged attack. The footage shows the actor with his face blurred and wearing a white rope he told detectives his attackers looped around his neck. "I just wanted y'all to see," Smollett is heard saying. He then begins to unwind the rope and says, "There's bleach on me." He’s also heard saying he doesn't want to be filmed and the body camera is shut off. The release is the latest chapter in a story that began with Smollett's allegations that he was the victim of a racist and homophobic attack.
