Malik Yoba: I Was Misquoted On Jussie Smollett’s Sexuality

Published

Empire actor Malik Yoba made some comments during a recent red carpet interview that led to speculation his co-star Jussie Smollett is gay. Jussie plays Jamal Lyon on the show, a gay singer. 

There has been a lot of talk on the blogs about Jussie’s real life sexual orientation and it appeared that Yoba outted him while talking about Empire’s take on the LGBT community.

“So, obviously, Lee (Daniels, co-creator) is gay. That was an important storyline for him. I think it’s important for people to see themselves. Even within the Black community. But if you aren’t really, really taking it off of screen and making it live in the community in a significant way … like I know Jussie, he is gay, and he’s very committed to issues around the LGBT community. He and I have a very close relationship.”

After that quote spread like wildfire, Malik issued a statement to USA Today trying to clarify this remarks. 

“I was misquoted in the article. My reference to Jussie was only about his character and storyline on Empire.”

Do you believe Malik, or do you think he’s trying to cover up his comments?
