ABC News: Jussie Smollett’s image takes new hit with revived charges
EKA partner Eric Rose was quoted in a recent ABC News piece on charges being brought against actor Jussie Smollett:
But Eric Rose, a partner in the public relations firm Englander Knabe & Allen, said that how the actor responds to the latest charges could determine whether he can recover.
“The public is extremely forgiving and allows people to make mistakes, but you have to own up to your mistakes and apologize in sincere fashion, and he has done none of that,” said Rose, who specializes in reputation management and crisis communications. He said he doesn’t believe Smollett’s claims of innocence.
