One of the stars of television show “Empire” was reportedly beaten by two men who yelled “This is MAGA country,” reports TMZ.
They then put a noose around his neck.
According to the report, “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 reports states that both the men were white and wearing ski masks and attacked, reporting: “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.'”
Afterward, he was taken to a local hospital before being discharged later Tuesday morning.
