Jussie Smollett has been having night terrors since he was allegedly attacked in a hate crime in January, says his brother Jojo. “I have literally seen him violently awakening from night terrors, following the assault. Some of my siblings, as well as Jussie’s partner and closest friends have seen similar things,” he wrote, noting that the media campaign against Jussie affects his mental health even more, but people don’t even ask themselves whether Jussi8e might be telling the truth. Jussie Smollett saw an outpouring of public support in January when it emerged that he had been the victim of an alleged homophobic and racist hate crime in Chicago. However, sympathy quickly dried up when charges were instead brought against Smollett, who was accused of staging the hate crime in an effort to boost his acting career.
