Jussie Smollett spoke directly to his “doubters” in an exclusive interview that aired on “Good Morning America” Thursday, just over two weeks after the “Empire” star told police he was brutally attacked in what authorities are calling a suspected hate crime.

In his first interview since police say he was attacked last month, the singer and actor said he was heartbroken when he found out that people questioned the details of his story.

“I have to acknowledge the lies, and the hate. And it feels like if I had said it was a Muslim, or a Mexican, or someone black, I feel like the doubters would have supported me much more. A lot more,” Smollett, 36, told ABC News’ Robin Roberts. “And that says a lot about the place that we are in our country right now.

“It’s not necessarily that you don’t believe that this is the truth, you don’t even want to see the truth,” he added.
