Jussie Smollett regrets his viral interview with Robin Roberts in 2019.
“I didn’t want to do an interview,” Smollett said on Sway in the Morning. “I love and respect Robin Roberts. I didn’t want to do this interview. The interview wasn’t for me. That was for my character,” he said.
He said he didn’t watch the interview until he went to court last year. Viewers felt that Smollett lied throughout the interview.
“I saw it and was ashamed. I mean I was embarrassed. I mean, I just winced because every single word I said in that interview was the truth, but there was a certain amount of performative nature that came out of it because I didn’t want to be there,” he said. “I was so angry and offended that I had to go on national television and explain something that happened to me. And it was so political, and it was all those things, and I was coming to terms with my own internalized homophobia.”
