Jussie Smollett‘s siblings are standing by their brother amid claims that the “Empire” star orchestrated an alleged hate attack against himself.

Smollett’s brother, Jocqui, posted an Instagram photo that read, “This is the media, an irresponsible media. It will make the criminal look like he’s the victim and make the victim look like he’s the criminal. If you aren’t careful, the media will have you hating the people who are being oppressed and loving the people who are doing the oppressing.”

Smollett’s sister, Jurnee Smollett-Bell, reposted the image.
