    Default Jussie Smollett from Empire Beaten and Hospitalized in MAGA Attack

    'Empire' Star Jussie Smollett Beaten in Homophobic Attack By MAGA Supporters


    EXCLUSIVE


    "Empire" star Jussie Smollett was brutally attacked by 2 men who beat him up, put his head in a noose and screamed, "This is MAGA country."

    Sources directly connected to Jussie tell TMZ, the actor arrived in Chicago from New York late Monday, and at around 2 AM he was hungry and went to a Subway. We're told when he walked out, someone yelled, "Aren't you that f***ot 'Empire' n*****?"

    The 2 men -- both white and wearing ski masks -- viciously attacked Jussie 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."

    Jussie 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**." Our sources say the letter was sent 8 days ago.

    It's so fucked up that they sent that letter and then were able to track him down and follow him to Subway in the middle of the night.

    I don't understand how Jussie Smollett would be on anybody's radar. Is he an activist in some way in addition to being an actor?

    No, I don't think he's an activist. I don't know why him except that he's an easy target because he looks younger than his age and has pretty eyes and happens to play a gay person on TV. I don't even know for sure if he's gay off screen.

    This is what his profile on Twitter says.

    If the letter part is true, it would seem these people were stalking him and knew his whereabouts. Were they just sitting there waiting, in case he wanted a 2 am snack? It's just really weird.

    And yes, he's openly gay. I don't know much about him but the few times I've seen him interviewed, he seemed like a sweet guy, very unassuming.

    I heard there are reports the attackers were wearing MAGA hats but it hasn't been confirmed, and I'm thinking it's unlikely. Ski masks and MAGA hats? who knows.

    Yeah, I wasn't sure if he came out. He does seem sweet from what I've seen, too.

    MAGA hats in Chicago...I don't know. Chicago ran Trump out of town before he was even elected. I'm aware there are assholes, racists, and Trump supporters everywhere, and Chicago obviously has its issues, but wearing a MAGA hat in the city is a good way to get yourself killed.

    Here's the letter:

    I just read on Twitter that Chicago PD is saying that they don't have a report that the attackers yelled "MAGA" or anything like that.

    Chicago? Doesn't surprise me at all. I spent one night at an airport hotel when my flight back to San Diego got delayed by weather. No night was too long.

    That's odd. I wonder how that detail made it into the story.

    It's not my favorite place either, but alas...

    This is horrifying. So much hatred and stupidity -but I have to admit something: Lately, I've been so depressed about the heinous direction the world seems to be headed, and I've frankly been feeling pretty hopeless.

    The thing is, hopeless is where they win. So, fuck 'em.

    Jessie, and all the non-famous victims, deserve my compassion, and help, and voice and, yes, my prayers. I'm looking for new ways to put that into action.

    From what Im reading now I'm not sure this story is quite as it seems. The police say they haven't found any cctv evidence of it yet.
