Default Re: ‘Empire’ star Jussie Smollett victim of possible racist and homophobic attack

Jussie Smollett turned down additional security before attack

Jussie Smollett didn’t want extra security in the week leading up to his attack this week.

The 35-year-old actor, who stars on “Empire,” was offered additional security by Fox when he wasn’t working on set, reports TMZ.

Last week, the television company offered to send helping hands after Smollett received a threatening letter with cutout letters reading “You will die black f-g.”

Security on set was increased after the incident, but Smollett reportedly did not want bodyguards for his time off the clock.

Late Monday night, Smollett was allegedly attacked in Chicago by two men who spewed racist and homophobic slurs.

The men also doused the star with a “chemical substance” and tied a rope around his neck, police said.

Smollett was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment and was released on Tuesday.

The assailants also yelled “This is MAGA country” during the attack, claims TMZ. The police have yet to confirm that.

The crime is under investigation by the Chicago Police Department.
Those who find the truth hateful just hate hearing the truth.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.....on a nigger.

If you're not catching flak, you're not over the target.
