*We’ve got some serious news about Jussie Smollett. The “Empire” star was reportedly beaten badly by 2 men who put his head in a noose and screamed, “This is MAGA country.”
Sources directly connected to Jussie say the actor arrived in Chicago from New York late Monday, and at around 2 AM he was hungry and went to a Subway. When he walked out, someone yelled, “Aren’t you that fa**ot ‘Empire’ ni**er?”
The 2 men — both white and wearing ski masks — viciously attacked Smollett as he fought back, but they beat him badly and fractured a rib. They put a rope around his neck, poured bleach on him and as they left they yelled, “This is MAGA country,” according to TMZ.
The actor/singer was taken to Northwestern Memorial where he was treated. He was discharged later Tuesday morning.
ThatGrapeJuice.Net first posted this letter which was sent to Fox Studios in Chicago with cut out letters spelling, “You will die black f**.”
Sources say the letter was sent 8 days ago. See it below
Law enforcement sources say Chicago PD is investigating the incident as a battery and the police say they are treating the incident as a possible hate crime.
What?! “Possible hate crime?” Unless the whole thing is a sham, what else the hell can it be?
