Prayers up for Jussie.
Empire star Jussie Smollett was a victim of brutal attack which took place in Chicago.
According to TMZ Smollett landed in Chicago from New York late Monday and headed to Subway to get something to eat around 2 am, then got approached by two men.
Before the attack, one of the attackers asked Jussie “Aren’t you that f***ot Empire n****?” The two men were wearing ski masks and viciously attacked him as he tried to fight back.
The men also reportedly put a rope around his neck, poured bleach on him, and allegedly yelled “This is MAGA country!” as they left.
Smollett was treated at the hospital for injuries including a fractured rib and was discharged Tuesday morning.
The Chicago Police Department confirmed they’re looking into the incident and investigating the attack as a possible hate crime. They’ve also reportedly captured surveillance footage from a Target and an apartment building close to where the incident happened.
Ok let’s be all the way real, do you honestly think that the police are going to “Investigate” this brutal and Homophobic attack?
