“Empire” star Jussie Smollett was brutally pounded by 2 group who kick him up, put his conduct in a knot and screamed, “This is MAGA country.”
Sources directly connected to Jussie tell TMZ, a actor arrived in Chicago from New York late Monday, and during around 2 AM he was inspired and went to a Subway. We’re told when he walked out, someone yelled, “Aren’t we that f***ot ‘Empire’ n*****?”
The 2 group — both white and wearing ski masks — viciously pounded Jussie as he fought back, though they kick him badly and fractured a rib. They put a wire around his neck, poured whiten on him and as they left they yelled, “This is MAGA country.”
Jussie was taken to Northwestern Memorial where he was treated. He was liberated after Tuesday morning.
ThatGrapeJuice.Net first posted this minute that was sent to Fox Studios in Chicago with cut out letters spelling, “You will die black f**.” Our sources contend a minute was sent 8 days ago.
The pouch a minute arrived in appears to contend MAGA in a top left corner.
Chicago PD tells us they are questioning a conflict as a probable hatred crime, and they are canvasing a area for any video.
