'Empire' Star Jussie Smollett Hospitalized After Homophobic Hate Attack

I feel sick to my stomach from this store.

I read this story on TMZ earlier this morning and I couldn't believe it. "Empire" star Jussie Smollett was attacked by 2 men who beat him up, put his head in a noose, and screamed, "This is MAGA."


How are people so messed up!? How could you do that to anyone!?

TMZ reported:

" Sources directly connected to Jussie tell TMZ, the actor arrived in Chicago from New York late Monday, and at around 2 AM he was hungry and went to a Subway. We're told when he walked out, someone yelled, "Aren't you that f***ot 'Empire' n*****?" 

The 2 men -- both white and wearing ski masks -- viciously attacked Jussie as he fought back, but they beat him badly and fractured a rib. They put a rope around his neck, poured bleach on him and as they left they yelled, "This is MAGA country." 

Jussie was taken to Northwestern Memorial where he was treated. He was discharged later Tuesday morning.

ThatGrapeJuice.Net  first posted this letter which was sent to Fox Studios in Chicago with cut out letters spelling, "You will die black f**." Our sources say the letter was sent 8 days ago. "

Chicago police released a statement:

God bless you Jussie. Praying for my your recovery and to one day end to this hate our nation.
