Empire’s Jussie Smollett attacked in Chicago (VIDEO)

Posted by | Ray Cornelius

Prayers up for Empire star and recording artist Jussie Smollett. The triple threat performer was attacked earlier today in Chicago.

According to TOOFAB, Smollett was jumped by two white males wearing ski masks after getting food from a Subway restaurant. “Aren’t you that f—ot ‘Empire’ n—-?” is what the attackers reportedly said before hitting him. They even wrapped a rope around his neck and poured bleach on him. The men left the scene reportedly yelling, “This is MAGA country.” Jussie eventually took himself to a hospital where he was later discharged.

It is also being reported by ThatGrapeJuice.Net that a letter was recently sent to Fox Studios in Chicago, where Empire is currently filming with threats towards the actor. “You will die black f—,” says the letter that also includes a gun and a person hanging from a tree.

Below is an official statement from Fox regarding Jussie’s senseless attack:

RC will keep you posted as this continues to develop. It is our prayer that he recovers soon and that the attackers are brought to justice.
