'Empire' Star Jussie Smollett Brutally Assaulted by Homophobic/Racist Trump Supporters




Jussie Smollett was hospitalized with a fractured rib and released Tuesday morning.

He was attacked at 2 a.m. in Chicago as he left a Subway sandwich shop by two men who first yelled "Aren't you that fa**ot Empire ni**er?" and then put his head in a noose, poured bleach on him, beat him and yelled "This is MAGA country!"

The two men were both white and wearing ski masks.

ETA:
Empire creator Lee Daniels posted a video on Instagram. It has been reported that the entire cast and crew were gathered on set this morning and told what had happened to Jussie, and are all still upset:
