Think twice before you come for Jussie.
Jussie Smollett, who you may know as Jamal Lyon on FOX’s hit show Empire, isn’t just an amazing actor, but an activist as well.
Recently, Smollett posed for a photo with friend and fellow activist DeRay McKesson, which McKesson tweeted and wrote, “@JussieSmollett, you’re hilarious & it was great to hang yesterday and talk blackness, freedom, & the work.”
It’s great to see two amazing people working together, but of course, this is Twitter and trolls abound. After a troll tweeted a homophobic joke, Smollett came in with what can only be described as the most savage clapback ever.
“No he didn’t,” Smollett tweeted, “But ya daddy did right after I dropped @deray off. Gotta hit him and make sure his throat is ok.”
Smollett’s clapback back was met with universal praise and pearl-clutching. He did not come to play and needless to say, trolls everywhere better think twice before coming for Jamal Lyon.
