Actors, artists and journalists alike are joining together to send well wishes to Jussie and are demanding the violence must end.

Fox’s Empire star, Jussie Smollett was hospitalized and later released after a brutal attack in Chicago. The actor was reportedly attacked by two men, on the subway who yelled Aren’t you that fa**ot “Empire” n*****?” . They put a noose around his neck and poured bleach on him and said he was an intruder of “MAGA country.” The men were both white and wearing ski-masks. The assault also left him with a fractured rib.

The scariest part is that TMZ is reporting that it was premeditated and racially motivated. The attackers previously sent a letter to Fox’s Chicago studio, that read “You will die black f**.” The men currently remain at large, and Chicago PD are treating this as a possible hate crime.
