Jonathan Majors Said He Was “Shocked” By Guilty Verdict: “How Is That Possible?”
Monday, Jan 8, 2024
Jonathan Majors speaks out in first interview since his domestic violence trial.
In clips from Majors’ sit-down with ABC News’ Linsey Davis, the actor said he was “shocked” that he was found guilty of misdemeanor third-degree assault and second-degree harassment against ex-girlfriend, Grace Jabbari. “How is that possible based off the evidence?” he explained to Davis. Regarding the video that captured Jabbari chasing Majors after they exited the vehicle, he implied race was a factor—saying if the roles were reversed, he would have been shot and killed by the police.
Although Majors admits to breaking a candle during a previous argument with Jabbari and telling her to be more like Coretta Scott King & Michelle Obama in an attempt to describe what he wanted in a partner, he said he didn’t know how Jabbari received her injuries—a fractured finger and cuts behind her ear—during the altercation. “I wish to god I knew. That would give clarity,” he responded when asked by Davis.
Jonathan Majors explains why he told his ex girlfriend Grace Jabbari to act like Coretta Scott King and Michelle Obama.
