According to TMZ, Sources directly connected to Jussie told said 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.”
The news spread like wild-fire via social media, and after Lee Daniels got word of the horrific incident here’s what he said.
Prayers up for Jussie Smollet!
