The actress, 48, took to Instagram on Wednesday evening to show her support for the 35-year-old actor after he was attacked by two men in Chicago on Tuesday night.
In a passionate post, she wrote, ‘I wish what happened to my baby was just one big bad joke but it wasn’t and we all feel his pain right now. ‘@JussieSmollett is pure love to the bone AND THAT IS WHY SO MANY ARE FEELING HIS PAIN BECAUSE IT IS OUR PAIN!!! I tell you one thing HATE WILL NOT WIN!!!!
My baby is resilient and love still lives in him. ‘The devil and his minions are very busy right now but one thing is for sure and two things are for certain and that is all I know.
This song needs to be downloaded until it goes triple platinum because the message is NEEDED.’ She finished, ‘The love so many have him just goes to show HE IS LOVE!!!! I LOVE YOU MY BABY MY BABY!!!
Taraji spoke out shortly after co-star Terrence Howard, who plays Jussie’s father in the show, addressed the attack on Good Morning America.
