Hollywood stars have been reacting to the attack on actor, Jussie Smollett by two men believed to be Trump’s supporters, as Chicago Police said he was attacked in what they described as a possible hate crime.
Jussie Smollett who is one of the stars from popular TV series Empire, was said to have been racially abused, and his attackers yelling out homophobic slurs towards him while also saying this is a MAGA country, sustained some injuries and was hospitalized.
Jussie Smollett after the attack checked into Northwestern Hospital where he was treated and has since been discharged.
Hollywood celebrities have been reacting ever since, condemning the attack. See some of the comments:
This may be a waste of time because I have learned that it’s often pointless to try and reach people who are hell bent on living in darkness, but here goes. To hate someone because of their race or sexuality is a shining reflection of who you are. To buy into the fear and the racist hatred that is being handed out daily by some of our politicians speaks to the ability of your very simple and small mind to be easily manipulated. To attack a defenseless person shows how much of a coward and how truly weak you really are. But as my grandmother always said when someone did something awful and evil, “I promise you, you will reap what you sow.” My tears and prayers are with the gentle, beautiful soul that is @jussiesmollett. I’m standing with you my friend and anyone else who is bullied and battered and marginalized because of the BEAUTY OF WHO THEY ARE. I love you and your family. Get well soon.”
Sending prayers your way @jussiesmollett ….This is unbelievably sad. Why are we going backwards….this is disgusting. We as people have to do better. WTF is going on the world???? Why are we falling in love with hate???? God damn it people….Choose love…I repeat…Choose love. I will forever choose love and I will continue to teach my kids how to do the same. Stand strong brother”
Sending Prayers and love to jussie Smollet ….❤️❤️❤️
It’s very sad when you can’t even walk down the street without someone trying to attack you. My prayer is that we all walk in LOVE❤️

This pic is of me thanking him for sending flowers after the RS article (which gave me great anxiety btw). What a kind kind kind soul
I’ve known Jussie since he was 10 years old, and a man of @JussieSmollett’s talent, intellect and kindness should be an undisputed blessing to our community. My heart is hurting knowing that he’s suffering…and for what? Just for being? The fact his presence on this earth would be perceived as a threat to anyone only shows the magnitude of their fear and confusion. I pray that our country learns to heal, that we may see each other for WHO we are and nothing more. We gotta find the LOVE yawl! Praying endlessly for Jussie’s quick recovery at Northwestern Memorial. Anyone with information is asked to call Area Central Detectives at 312-747-8382
