Empire star Jussie Smollet has been hospitalized in Chicago following a homophobic and racially charged attack, according to That Grape Juice.
Jussie was brutally attacked by two men who beat him up, put his head in a noose and screamed, “This is MAGA country.”
Sources directly connected to Jussie told TMZ, the actor went to a Subway in Chicago at 2 AM. When he walked out, someone yelled, “Aren’t you that f****t ‘Empire’ n****a?”
The 2 white men in ski masks then viciously attacked the actor, fracturing his rib. They also reportedly put a rope around his neck and poured bleach on him.
Jussie was taken to Northwestern Memorial where he was treated and discharged this morning.
That Grape Juice also got ahold of a letter that was sent to Fox Studios in Chicago and addressed to Jussie. The cut out letters read: “You will die black f*g.”
Please are investigating this as a hate crime.
