Jussie Smollett Returns To Social Media With Pride Month Message

Jussie Smollett breaks social media silence with Tonys-related post

Jussie Smollett broke his social media silence on Monday, posting to Instagram for the first time since January 28 - the day before he reported being the victim of an attack that ended up being a hoax.

In the video, Tarell Alvin McCraney discussed black queerness before introducing his multi-nominated play Choir Boy at Radio City Music Hall.

On Monday morning, the Empire star took to Instagram where he shared a memorable clip from this weekend's 2019 Tony Awards. Because of all the hate being directed his way, he disappeared from the internet for a while but today, he returned to celebrate Pride Month and last night's Tony Awards, making his first post since January.

Smollett had been laying low on social media since he alleged he was the victim of a homophobic and racist attack in Chicago on January 29.

Australia vs Pakistan | Injured Marcus Stoinis Out of Pakistan Clash
Australia have recalled Mitchell Marsh to join their ODI squad for the ongoing World Cup as cover for allrounder Marcus Stoinis . Stoinis sustained the injury during champions Australia's 36-run defeat by India at the Oval on Sunday.

Following a lengthy investigation, however, Chicago Police Department determined Smollett, who is openly gay, had fabricated the whole story.

He maintained his innocence and eventually prosecutors dismissed all criminal charges against him in March.

Smollett's character was written out of the final episodes of the most recent season of "Empire" as the case against him developed.

He related to the message McCraney conveyed, writing that he has "so much #PRIDE". His return to social media comes a week after creator Lee Daniels revealed that Smollett would not be reprising his role as Jamal Lyon on the series' upcoming sixth and final season.
