Popular Empire actor, Jussie Smollett was in the early hours of Tuesday morning attacked in what police described as a possible ‘hate crime’ in Chicago.
According to the statement released by the Chicago Police Department, Jussie was attacked and beaten by two people who were yelling “racial and homophobic slurs.”
Police also described how the two people “poured and unknown chemical substance on the victim” and “wrapped a rope around the victims neck.”
TMZ also reported that the two people who attacked Jussie Smollett were shouting MAGA country” during the attack, and it’s possibly connected to a letter sent to FOX studio eight days ago that was addressed to Jussie and said, “You will die black f*g.”
Jussie Smollett who was said to have taken himself to Northwestern Memorial for treatment, has since been discharged.
