I don't watch Empire, I have NO idea who this kid is. That is irrelevant. These bastards need to go to jail for LIFE. Frankly, this is so despicable I hope it is all a nasty lie!!!!
PS Why is it only on TMZ?

EMPIRE star Jussie Smollett has been rushed to hospital after being targeted in a brutal street attack.

The actor, 35, was ambushed at 2am on Tuesday in Chicago, by two men wearing ski masks who put a noose around his neck and poured bleach over him while shouting racist and homophobic slurs, according to TMZ.

Jussie Smollett was reportedly attacked by two men in ski masks

Jussie - who is known for playing Jamal Lyon in the show - is thought to have arrived in Chicago from New York on Monday evening and headed out for food at 2am when he got hungry. The website claims he went to sandwich store Subway and when he walked out he was racially abused by someone who recognised him from Empire.

The men, who TMZ claim were both white, then attacked him and fractured a rib, as Jussie tried to fight back.
They then reportedly put a rope around his neck and covered him in bleach, while shouting "This is MAGA country" (Make America Great Again).

Mr. picturetaker,

Sorry, but this doesn't pass the smell factor. He runs into two guys walking down the street at 2 in the morning that just happen to be wearing ski masks and carrying rope and a bottle of bleach?

More like he was cruising and got mugged, doesn't want to admit it to his husband.

Sounds more to me like a false flag attack by Trump haters. The story so far seems too tidy and perfectly planned, right down to the this-is-maga-land comment. It sounds as scripted as a Hollywood propaganda movie. I sincerely hope they catch the perpetrators and punish them to the extent of the law regardless of their motivations. No one deserves to be randomly assaulted.

So in your scenario, this makes it all justifiable? You are soooo cool.
