Empire Star Jussie Smollett Hospitalized After Apparent Racial And Homophobic Attack

One of the stars of “Empire,” Jussie Smollett, was hospitalized after a likely homophobic and racially charged attack. Two men approached him and started yelling “racial and homophobic slurs,” poured an unknown chemical substance on him and wrapped a rope around his neck. As they left, the men reportedly screamed, “MAGA country.” Apparently he had received some hate mail ahead of the attack, and even Fox offered him bodyguards when he wasn’t working (according to TMZ). He declined.
