Jussie Smollett Hospitalized After Being Injured In Racially Motivated Homophobic Attack


Empire star Jussie Smollett was hospitalized following what’s being investigated as a homophobic, racist hate crime, police verify. The assault occurred round 2 a.m. Tuesday morning exterior a Subway in Chicago, with TMZ saying two white males carrying ski masks allegedly shouted “that is MAGA nation,” positioned a noose round Smollett’s neck, beat him, and left him with a fractured rib.

“Given the severity of the allegations, we're taking this investigation very significantly and treating it as a attainable hate crime,” reads the PD’s assertion, including that “an unknown chemical substance”, initially known as bleach was poured on Smollett.
