Empire Star Jussie Smollet Hospitalized After Racist Brutal Hate Attack, “Aren’t You That F*ggot Empire N*gger?”
‘Empire’ star Jussie Smollett has been hospitalized in Chicago following a racially charged hate attack.
Sources state that Jussie arrived in Chicago from New York late on Monday evening, and at around 2am Tuesday morning, he went to a Subway to get something to eat. When he walked out, someone yelled, “Aren’t you that f*ggot ‘Empire’ n*gger?”
The two men who viciously attacked Jussie are being described as being white and wearing ski masks. Jussie allegedly tried to fight back, but they beat him badly and left Jussie with a fractured rib. They put a rope around his neck, poured bleach on him and as they left they yelled, “This is MAGA country.”
This sounds like a premeditated attack at the very least.
Jussie was taken to Northwestern Memorial where he was treated. He was discharged later Tuesday morning.
The Chicago Police Department are investigating. They released this statement:
We wish Jussie a speedy recovery.
