The Chicago Police Department received a report of a possible racially-charged assault and battery against an ‘Empire‘ cast member Jussie Smollett.
TMZ reports that 2 men -- both white and wearing ski masks -- 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."
Sending our love to Jussie and hope he recovers quickly. Just awful!
