“Empire” star, Jussie Smollett, has been attacked by homophobic MAGA supporters and it has sparked a social media outrage.
According to TMZ, Jussie was brutally beaten by two male ‘Make America Great Again’ supporters in Chicago. The men allegedly put his head in a noose, poured bleach on him and left him with a few fractured ribs, but not before using a homophobic slur saying, “Aren’t you that fa**ot ‘Empire’ n*****,” ending with “This is MAGA country.”
Jussie was later taken to the Northwestern Memorial hospital and has since been treated and released.
Sources even revealed that the actor and singer received several threats through FOX Studios which read, “You will die black f**.”
OMG! We just hope that Jussie and his family are ok after this. 😞
