Jussie Smollett, the star of the Fox television show “Empire” who said he had been attacked by two men yelling racial and homophobic slurs, released his first public comments about the incident on Friday.

“Let me start by saying that I’m O.K.,” Smollett said in a statement released by his publicist. “My body is strong but my soul is stronger. More importantly, I want to say thank you. The outpouring of love and support from my village has meant more than I will ever be able to truly put into words.”
