An exclusive interview with “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett will air Thursday morning on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

The interview comes more than two weeks after Smollett told police that he was attacked in Chicago by two masked men yelling racial and homophobic slurs, including “MAGA Country.” He said that the attackers poured a bleach-smelling liquid and put a noose around his neck.

In the interview with GMA’s Robin Roberts, Smollett said “I’m pissed off.”

In a promo clipped released Wednesday, Roberts asked him what was making him so angry.

He responds: “It’s the attackers, but also the attacks.”

Smollett also talked about those who don’t believe his story.

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