After the shocking attack has been revealed a ton of celebrities raised their voices and stood up for the man.
Porsha Williams and Kandi Burruss did the same thing.
‘Sending prayers and love to my friend @jussiesmollett! Hate has caused a lot of problems in this world but has not solved one yet! #love #nohate,’ Kandi’s message reads.
Someone commented ‘Clearly this message from Team Kandi since the real Kandi Burriss is locked up currently in the Big Brother house! Why mislead people? 🤷♀️ The real Kandi, I’m sure, will easily send Jussie authentic well wishes in 2 weeks (or sooner) when she’s free of the BBCeleb house.’
Another follower said ‘OMG feel better I hate that this the world we live in AGAIN unacceptance is unacceptable wake-up America.’
Porsha captioned her post with the following words: ‘❤️Sending up prayers to @jussiesmollett 🙏🏾🙏🏾 we love you sorry this happen to you. #IStandWithYou✊🏽’

Another follower wrote that they are ‘Praying for Physical, mental and spiritual healing. Hatred must end. Let God be the judge.’
