Tweeted Guglielmi: "Through s meticulous investigation, #ChicahoPolice (sic) detectives have identified the persons of interest in the area of the alleged attack of the Empire cast member". Superintendent Johnson has been clear from day one that Jussie is a victim.
Asked why by host Robin Roberts, he replied: "It's the attackers, but it's also the attacks". Smollett explained that this was a false add-on to what he said earlier in the interview about how his attacker supposed yelled pro-Donald Trump slogans during the assault.
Smollett has claimed two men beat him up, tied a rope around his neck, said racial and homophobic slurs and threw an unidentified chemical substance on him on January 29, according to The Associated Press.
Chicago police, who have scoured through hundreds of hours of surveillance footage from Chicago street cameras, have found film of Smollett arriving back at his apartment with the rope still round his neck. "And that somehow maybe I added a little extra trinket, you know, of the MAGA thing", said Smollett. "You do such a disservice when you lie about things like this". "Like, how do you not believe that?' It's the truth".
Smollett told Roberts that before the alleged attack, he had gone to a Subway restaurant shortly after landing in Chicago, where the Fox drama is filmed.
He said he texted his manager, Brandon Moore, who he believed to be in Australia with another client, and left a message for Moore to call him.
Smollett later went to Northwestern Memorial Hospital after police advised him to do so. So I punched his a** back.
Smollet then acknowledged the allegations that he may have fabricated the story, due to what some have claimed were inconsistent details in his recounting of the event. "Jussie is rising above hate, racism, homophobia, and doubt surrounding the attack and instead using his voice and talent to fight back against the rising rates of violence against Black and LGBTQ people, as well as those who live at the intersection of those identities".
Glancing down, Smollett said he saw a rope.
"I didn't need to add anything like that", he said. I noticed the rope around my neck and I started screaming.
Police are investigating the incident and hunting for the alleged attackers - but Smollett acknowledged they may never be arrested. The two men are labeled as "persons of interest" and cops think they may be the individuals that were seen in the grainy images from the night of the attack.
"I want that video found so badly" - for multiple reasons, Smollett told Roberts. They insist, however, that these people aren't suspects at this time. Fighting, fighting, fighting, there was a second person involved who was kicking me in my back. "They ran off, I didn't".
Smollett has faced increased scrutiny this week amid reports that he gave redacted phone records to police. A spokeswoman for the Chicago Police Department confirmed that they "received limited and redacted phone records from the victim".
"Transportation records" also assisted detectives, Guglielmi said, noting that he could not elaborate.
