Jussie Smollet, who stars as Jamal Lyon in Empire, was ruthlessly assaulted by two homophobic men and he wound up in the clinic.
The men beat up Jussie Smollett, put his head in a noose and shouted, “This is MAGA nation.”
Sources straightforwardly associated with Jussie tell TMZ, the on-screen character touched base in Chicago from New York late Monday, and at around 2 AM he was ravenous and went to a Subway with plans to get nourishment. Be that as it may, he was assaulted.
When they saw Jussie, the men – both white – hollered: “Aren’t you that faggot ‘Domain’ nigga?”
They at that point violently assaulted Jussie. He battled back, yet they beat him severely and broke a rib. They put a rope around his neck, poured fade on him and as they left they shouted, “This is MAGA nation.”
Jussie was taken to Northwestern Memorial where he was dealt with. He was released later Tuesday morning.
This isn’t the first run through Jussie is being focused by homophobes. 8 days prior, a letter for Jussie was sent to Fox Studios in Chicago with cut out letters spelling, “You will pass on dark fag.” The envelope the letter touched base in seems to state MAGA in the upper left corner.
Chicago PD said they are researching the assault as a conceivable loathe wrongdoing, and they are canvasing the zone for any video.
