Jussie Smollett attacked in possible hate crime - CNN
This is disturbing. It's slowly becoming 1954 America again. There's a troubling documentary on Netflix about the resurgence of the Klan. What I took away from watching it besides a group of insecure people blaming others for their problems is that they should recruit members with some teeth.Empire" actor Jussie Smollett was attacked in the early morning hours on Tuesday in what Chicago police are calling a possible hate crime.
Smollett was attacked by two people "yelling out racial and homophobic slurs," according to police.
A representative for Smollett did not immediately return CNN's request for comment.
The offenders physically attacked Smollett and "poured an unknown chemical substance on the victim," police said.
According to police, one of Smollett's alleged attackers also put a rope around his neck. Both fled the scene.
Smollett took himself to Northwestern Hospital and "is in good condition," police said.
