Jussie Smollett

Chicago police may have located video footage that show two "people of interest" in the alleged racially-motivated attack on "Empire" star Jussie Smollett.

"Police detectives have located surveillance cameras that show potential people of interest in the alleged assault and battery that was reported in the 300 block of E. North Water Street," Chicago Police told Page Six Wednesday evening.

"While the footage does not depict an assault, the individuals pictured are seen in the vicinity of the alleged criminal incident during the alleged time of occurrence."

Jussie Smollett

Late Wednesday, police released images of two shadowy figures wearing dark clothing. There are no identifiable features in the images.

Investigators reviewed hundreds of hours of surveillance video footage from cameras along the route Smollett took from his downtown Chicago hotel to a nearby Subway restaurant.

The temperature was -10 degrees Fahrenheit that night.

A Subway employee told ET News the actor left the restaurant around 2:15 a.m. The Subway is a 4 or 5 minute walk from the Loews Hotel where Smollett was staying.

Smollett, 36, told detectives the two masked suspects recognized him as the singer/songwriter Jamal Lyon on the Fox hip-hop soap opera "Empire", and they shouted, "Aren't you that fa**ot" Empire ni**er?"

The actor said the men beat him up, placed a thin rope around his neck and threw bleach in his face during the attack.

Smollett still had the small rope -- described as a clothesline, straight out the package - looped around his neck when police arrived at his manager's apartment 40 minutes later.

Smollet's manager drove him to the hospital, where he was treated for minor injuries and released Tuesday.

Chicago has one of the most expensive and sophisticated video surveillance systems in the US. Cameras are mounted everywhere on poles, buses and outside businesses.

    Chicago does not have cameras everywhere! They have cameras on the street to catch people speeding and to hear gunshots and cameras on the buses and trains but that’s it!

    Over 50% of murders go unsolved in this beautiful city! Some zones are worse than others but it’s a clear sign despite it being a Democratic stronghold, the curruption in the city runs deep and wide.

  • chaisun

    You mean white People for every country. Travel anywhere in this world and you’ll find white people causing havoc, being privileged, demonic and causing destruction. If white people didn’t want to be around us then they wouldn’t purposefully invade, colonize and gentrify. If you haven’t noticed we have no interest in being around them. You white people afe committing self genocide in various ways, opioids, meth, suicide so you don’t need our help. With how evil world white history is genocide is bound to happen. Congratulations.

    Pretty much shows nothing. I doubt some extremeist Trump supporters are roaming around Chicago of all places looking for black people to terrorize, unlikely

    "Smollett still had the small rope -- described as a clothesline,

    He must have been stalked or tracked. Otherwise, who would know he was in the Subway and have a rope and Liquid ready to pour on him? Did he Instagram his every move to his followers.

    As for the pictures, they can blow it up. They have the photo tools to move in closer for a picture.

  • Svetlana ????

    Genocide and colonization and slavery has occurred amongst all people, they have not been exclusively white on -others.

    We should all respect one another.

  • Li-Wright

    Sorry, but the city is abundant with cameras. The stores and retailers and garages have cameras. Especially downtown. Even the Tribune building has outside cameras. Now, the visibility or clearness of the cameras is another issue, like that above picture shows.

    He is lying. Of course the truth will never come out. Too many ppl have written it off as a hate crime now. Sad times

    if he had bleach thrown on him shouldn't his skin show signs of irritation or eyes be red from irritation due to the chemical makeup of bleach?? Shouldn't his hair color turned blonde??

    I was thinking the same thing when i saw the pic of him with that "fingernail scratch"...

  • MsSapphire9800

    You keep blaming TMZ for the "MAGA" misinformation....when it was actually Jussie manager who put that information out there....he stated he was on the phone with Jussie during the attack and heard the guys say "MAGA."

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    You're right. The one closest to the wall looks like a female. It looks like a random couple walking down the street.

  • SeehereSeehere

    I just can’t understand why Chicago has such a horrendous murder rate if the have so many cameras

  • Nectar222

    Usually....when it's -10 below, you MUST cover your face. You cannot walk and breath without something covering your mouth, ears and head.
    So two guys recognized him, took the time to confirm it's him??
    Then decided breath in the ice air, beat him, pour bleach on him, wrap the rope around his neck, then just walk away...you gotta breathe alot to do that......in -10 below weather.

  • Dj

    And if that’s the case why wasn’t my uncle murder, my cousins murder or any other murder that takes place not caught on camera when there is such an abundance of camera everywhere and everyone believes the cameras are there to film crime... i said what i meant when i said it! And yet all there is a vague capture as usual that all that ever gets caught here

  • Dj

    but this didn’t happen at the hotel!

  • SeehereSeehere

    My thoughts exactly. The murder rate in Chicago is atrocious.

  • justlooking

    I think the bleach froze.?

  • Dj

    Very much so! And the only time it’s on camera when it’s a cop killing someone point blank period!

    I can’t stop laughing at this fabricated mess, and how gullible much of the world is. This boy is lyinggggggggg. It’s sad because there are real crimes being committed and real victims who deserve justice. Now I see how Jim Jones was able to get folks to drink cool aid... ppl will believe anything!!!

  • Dreadboi

    that's my guess with the scratch..

  • Mielle Downey

    : Yes, bleach does freeze. There are various concentrations of bleach, and each will respond at a different temperature. The chlorine content of the bleach will determine at what point the bleach will freeze. If you are talking about a bottle of household belach, then it will be around 18 or 19 degrees F.

  • Mielle Downey

    How cold was it in chi town?

  • Renee26

    Depends...how big is your stomach??

    I miss a lil chicken skin. The golden crispness. A biscuit and red beans and rice. Makes my stomach hurt.

    This reminds me of when the 50 or so women accused trump of sexual assault. So many people called those women liars.

    Something is up with his story.

  • nyla00

    Why do you feel he’s lying?

  • Mielle Downey

    Frozen bleach lol

  • justlooking

    Seriously

    A: Yes, bleach does freeze. ... The chlorine content of the bleach will determine at what point the bleach will freeze. If you are talking about a bottle of household belach, then it will be around 18 or 19 degrees F. This will also depend on windchill if the bleach is outside of a protective structure.

  • MsSapphire9800

    The problem is she tripping off TMZ but on SR...and they are both blogs for entertainment.

  • Mielle Downey

    Chris Brown was accused to and she deff lying so what is your point? Dont go to an island with no one called jim brown and drink the koolaid. Your to trusting.

  • ALLMINE?

    Omg

  • MsSapphire9800

    Don't forget the scratch....because he was badly beaten.

  • SeehereSeehere

    When it gets to the point in which 50 women come forward and they are all saying the same thing I think we can both agree that it is not the same situation as Chris Brown’s.

  • Mielle Downey

  • Meme

    Thanks for schooling me you actually might be right ?

  • Whiplash(lacejagger)

    I have a knack for picking out liars. As soon as I heard this story, I knew it was a lie! Propaganda. IF and I say IF he was attacked, it was definitely a set up... not some white dudes talking about maga, etc.. wouldn’t be surprised if his creepy boss Lee Daniels orchestrated this mess, for ratings and propaganda.

  • Mielle Downey

    We learned from history that the majority is not always right. Slavery was accepted for centuries. So your point is mute.

  • Khaliah

    I thought he drove his own self to the hospital!?!?! Which is it?

  • casiepriest33

    It’s Jim Jones honey.

  • SeehereSeehere

    Slavery and sexual assault are two very different topics that are handled in two very different ways.

  • Mielle Downey

    Jim Jones is dead

  • Khaliah

    I wonder if it was Clorox 2, a powdered bleach? It's something that they already had bleach and a rope ready, like they knew he was coming.

  • Mielle Downey

    Was slavery ok because it was accepted at the time by the majority?majority can only enfluence acceptable behavior not validate it. If 50 people said jump off a bridge will you follow?

  • casiepriest33

    No, he’s not. Jim Brown is alive. Jim Jones is the one who got people to drink the koolaid.

  • Mielle Downey

    And he is dead. I said Jim brown because a dead jim Jones is not taking anyone to an island.

  • Svetlana ????

    They were liars tho

  • SeehereSeehere

    Slavery is wrong in any era. Ignoring 50 or so women coming forward with allegations of sexual assault by the same man is also wrong in any era.

    Wow

  • casiepriest33
  • Mielle Downey

    He killed him self but shooting him self in the head. Logically I am not going to elude to a dead man taking someone anywhere that would be ludicrous.

  • casiepriest33

    He’s not dead hun

  • Svetlana ????

    Like most MeToo women. If I was ever sexually assaulted by any man I would run to the nearest police station and report it.

    These women make up stories of being inappropriately touched. Please

  • Mielle Downey

    Men lie women lie. If they have the burden of proof on their side the case should have went forward. The times of me beliving something because you said so is over. I hate political rhetoric and the use of victim blaming to make a statement. Why wait until there is clout to come forward?this is what destroys the credibility of real victims and it sickens me that someone could be so calculating.

    The cameras have been a slow rollout for about 5 years. Now when there's a murder or robberry the first thing the cops do is look for cameras.

    So, tons of black men have been getting shot and killed in Chicago over the years... but police decide to put all this time, energy and publicity into
    looking for the person who supposedly beat up this *celebrity* black man who ended up with a cut under his eye. Craziness.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    33 people have been arrested in 4 days for sex trafficking in Atlanta and they expect plenty more arrests.. 4 girls were rescued

  • NeverSurprised

    From TMZ:

    "We've confirmed with law enforcement sources that Smollett refused to turn his cellphone over to authorities after telling them he was on the phone with his manager during the incident."

    So, apparently the worst crime in the history of Chicago has occurred -- far worse than all of those black kids being SHOT DEAD every year -- yet Jussie: 1) asked cops to turn OFF their bodycams, and 2) refuses to give them access to the cell phone he CLAIMS he was on while the assault took place.

    But not a word he says will be challenged because he is the tool being used to make blacks embrace g@ys. So long as he's doing the devil's work he will be untouchable.

    I want to see what Jussie was wearing. If he had on a hat or a coat with a hood, how could a random stranger recognize him on a dark street? A neighbor claims she saw a "redneck" lurking outside their building around midnight or 1 am. If that's true, this wasn't random.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    Damn those were the most prepared criminals ever, walking around with bleach and rope...just in case?

  • NeverSurprised

    The first person shot in Chicago in 2019 was 12 y.o. Javonta Dockery, a CHILD who was shot as he stood at the window INSIDE HIS GRANDMOTHERS HOME, caught in tbe crossfire of shots from outside.

    Not one black celeb or politician expressed "outrage" that a black child is unsafe INSIDE his home. No 24/7 news coverage or discussions of the long-term psychological effects that living in constant fear will have on Chicago's innocent black children. But gee whiz, I sure hope Jussie's SCRATCH heals quickly.

    So Hollywood has their top spokesperson act this out to distract from Ed Buck killing gay black men in Hollywood. Ok.
    The plot thickens. The weather alone makes this a stone cold unsolved mystery.

    Let me just say this..... Jussie, I'm sorry this happened to you. I hope they find the people responsible. May you have a speedy recovery. #sincerely

  • Yoni7

    Are there timestamps on these videos?

  • Chicagowise

    I had a strange dream last night. I dreamt that the men who attacked Jussie, were cops. I dreamt that because of their law enforcement connections, they knew where he was and stalked him. I dreamt there was a 3rd person, associated with Jussie's residence, who informed the assailants when Jussie was leaving the building. Law enforcement, please don't contact me. This was just a dream.

    The police are saying he is not telling the TRUTH about what happened! They have not seen ANY video where he was FOLLOWED! Plus he won’t give up his cellphone since he said he was talking to his manager at the time! The whole story just REEKS of deception! What ever happen.. he won’t do this crap again!

  • Anji

    Why do people expect the white establishment to give a fk about a Black child? What fantasy world do you live in? This is America. 1980s South Central LA, children were taught to avoid Windows. 2019 LA, schools in LA built like fortresses, no Windows on street level period. This has been the new, urban reality. Homes are barricaded and children do Not play outside, at parks or...hang in front of Windows. I'm currently working on the systems that have fostered such environments. Who cares about whether wypipo care or celebs care? Look in the mirror and ask yourself do you care enough to foment change. Your President does not care. His actions or lack thereof in addressing root issues clearly demonstrates his truth.

  • Bonita

    Neither appear to be carrying any bleach.

    Right! lol This is a joke.

    I'm all over this city every night. It's so cold that even the dope boys aint been posted up on their corners. And if these two were on a bench, how do we know that they didn't pull this footage from a totally different neighborhood, and are passing it off as being in the area Jussie was in. Cops in Chicago are very corrupt. So somebody could've been slipped some money to play along with this lie and find some footage, any footage.

  • Yoni7

    So you saying Lee Daniels paid them to do this? You saying he trying to get his coins up to pay Dame back?
    You saying folks WILL do something a lil strange for some change?

    I don’t believe one word of this story, it sounds like something written for an episode of Empire! He went to meet someone and it went awry plain and simple. Problem is he used EVERY trigger possible and “everyone” is outraged. If he won’t release his phone end the investigation

  • Anji

    No. Racism and classism reigns on high in LEO's. We know this. Why expect moreMLJ? Our salvation must be from within. My Sheriff's station officers are going to prison for establishing a violent gang that enjoyed castigating, setting up and gaining pleasure for death and destruction t ion of Black males. The judge has now started to demand the showing of the Vikings tattoo they sport as a tool used for indictment. I fought to see elected sheriff official locked up and doing time. The struggle continues. They bear arms to eliminate Black family structure. I recall my surprise nearby project dwellers got hold of rocket launchers to bring down choppers. Now I'm not surprised..at...all. They realized before I that this "war" is just that. Always tried to live up to my name as my Cherokee shamans named me Angel..."she who touches earth", but I'm realizing it will take violence and aggressive systemic battles to save our children and to be creative in determining new directions if they are to have futures. Celebs are few. Mainstream Media as we know it should be relegated to it's place of incompetence in our areas and each of us average folk must stand for our tomorrow's tomorrow. Everyone is angry. Now let's put that anger to use. The Civil Rights Movement was noble. Just no one picked up the banner with success that will should see equality in action. It's a war of mind. Body. Spirit Warfare. And sometimes the enemy, once identified and understood, must receive retaliation by economics and weaponry. It is his way. NTW I'll return to lurking. In my day I had professors and mentors Angela Davis, bell hooks (Gloria Jean Watkins) and Lavada Robinson, my Godmother and Odessa Miller. My Mom. Let us be the solution.

    you know this shit gotta be bad when there were warnings posted everywhere that police and uber/lyft and hotels and everybody was gonna be on the lookout and then, like, 3 days later, arrests!

  • Kayke

    You don’t know what private things he has on his phone for him or other celebs. They leaked Rihanna’s photos of her bruised up face to the press.... they can’t be trusted with sensitive information, especially when news outlets will pay for photos and info. Cops are just regular people. I’d give him a pass on not giving up the phone.

  • wigmon68

    They said 145 and I think is several blocks away from where the alleged attack occurred.

  • Elaine Reed

    I hope this isn't a scam or for ratings. The story seems so far fetched. First they threw bleach on him...then they beat him...then they tied a rope around his neck...at 2:00 am in the freezing cold.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Now they talking about the man waited 40 mins to call the cops and he still had the noose around his neck when they arrived ???

    Maybe he was eating the sammich while he got his story together?

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Aint that the truth?

    So one must've had a flask with the bleach in it, and the other a flask with the alcohol in it that they were sharing to keep them warm. lol

  • Peace

    Sounds like they made a sandwich out of him.

  • Ghost

    I lost ALL respect for our Ploice chief when he made that damn statement! But Jussie lifestyle warrants an intensive search in the damn arctic cold and women missing all summer who were literally dismissed because of their so called unscrupulous lifestyle! Let’s be FAIR and CONCERNED for everybody not just celebrities!

  • Renee26

    Sad... Seems to be the narrative with folks these days. Their lifestyle caused them to be enslaved...raped...beaten...kidnapped etc.

    Doesn't take away the fact that a crime was committed against them.

  • Kayke

    Or no one at all .... he just left his managers at his apartment to walk 4-5 mins away and return.... what would he need to be talking to his manager about in that 15 min window? If it regarding safety, he would’ve just walked with him, right?

  • Ghost

    Nobody especially in ARTIC weather! And did they locate the bleach bottle? Or smell bleach? His eyes should have been affected and clothes discolored!

  • Yoni7

    The manager was probably like "It's too cold. You go. Sh!t!"

  • Yoni7

    My point.

  • StoneColdLady

    True BUT he is describing/claiming a HATE crimes on two fronts and saying a “noose” was used. The FBI is now involved and senators are using this incident to further support anti lynching legislation and you don’t want investigators to see your phone...

  • Kayke

    If what he says is true, then he should bring up the cell phone.... but not giving it up shouldnt discredit him because the cops don’t actually need the phone, just the call logs and they can get a subpoena for that in minutes and go to the carrier. There is nothing to keep them out of his pics, text, notes, and whatever else that has nothing to do with the investigation... that could be purposely exposed for profit.

    Hopefully they weren't so tipsy to where they got the two mixed up. lol

  • Kayke

    Yeah! His celebrity affords him this. John Legend’s dick pic shouldn’t become public because he gave up his entire phone instead of waiting for the call logs to be subpoena.
    (Insinuating Jussie and John trade dick pics)

  • Bonita

    LOL

  • Mielle Downey

    The manager said he heard the attack but Jussie will not turn over the phone. GOD don't like ugly and I hope he is not embellishing the facts becuz his chicken will come home to roost. He should fire his manager because this guy doesn't have his best interest.

  • Blak

    Those guys are probably two black men walking home from work, minding their own business showing up in the video with no connection to this fke attack dreamed up by him, his manager and Lee Scamuels.

  • Kayke

    Lol right! But what they talking about after just being in the same place 10 mins ago and going right back.

  • Peace

    The 1 thing we know for sure. Something happened to Jussie that completely spooked him to the point he had to get police involved and seek medical treatment.
    1. Could he have been under the influence of a substance and run out into the cold night and began to hallucinate?
    People have whole conversations and incidents that never actually happened while high on pills and other drugs.
    2. He calls his manager( one well aware of all things concerning him/even willing to conceal a matter for him) and not 911 after being assaulted by 2 people and a rope around his neck.
    3. A new neighbor has emerged to say she saw a man outside with a rope that spooked her and she went back inside.
    4. Where is the video of that?
    5. Not releasing the video of Smollett going to and from Subway and all his movements in the subway and back at the hotel is very telling.....,,,They don’t believe him.

    Neighbor has spoken to the police about a redneck with a rope pacing in front of the building about an hour and a half before the attack. There was also a letter sent to fox studios before the attack. Sounds like he was being stalked.

    That's what I'm saying. Coming here stirring up bs. It's bad enough the national news tries to portray Chicago as this dangerous city, with this astronomical murder rate. Which couldn't be further from the truth. If this city was as bad as they make it seem, I'd relocate in a heartbeat. Shits annoying.

  • Yoni7

    Oh. I thought he was on his way to. Regardless, he probably messed up the managers order. LOL

    So someone was pacing for an hour in 20 below weather?! He should have had frostbite! Yeah....ok

  • smartchickfl

    Lee Daniels was probably the mastermind behind this over-dramatic, extra ass script. When I first saw the story I was shocked and genuinely felt bad for him.

Bye Felicia.

  • SeehereSeehere

    Would be nice if I could figure out a way to get people I hate to make up excuses for me. The president is a genius.

    All I’m saying is I wish I had the recipe for convincing people who don’t like me to haplessly defend me and even make up excuses for me. The president is a genius for figuring out a way to get black women to defend would be racist white males. Should come in handy during his race against Kamala Harris.

  • Mielle Downey

    So why not give up your phone? Why not call the cops first? This is why I don't believe his version of the truth.

  • NeverSurprised

    My goodness. I haven't read anything about this. Thanks for the info.

    Of course, some of the black celebs and politicians jockeying for camea time to cry about Jussie's SCRATCH could take a second to mention these women. Then, the whole world would know. Kamala Harris? Taraji Henson? Do any of you care?

  • SeehereSeehere

    All I want to figure out is how the president managed to get black women to make up excuses for his alleged racist supporters. Greatest trick I’ve ever observed.

  • Mielle Downey

    But you do, take the kkk hood they used to terrorize your ansestors and frame it so you can can continue to strive towards that plantation life style you are enjoying on the Democrats dime. You make up excuses all the time for them and the can't stand you and only want your vote.

  • NeverSurprised

    Exactly.

  • StoneColdLady

    No, you sound amazed that as you put it “black” women have the critical thinking skills and the audacity to question the narrative given to them, especially when EVERY aspect of THIS story uses “trigger “ words that would cause black people as well as gays to be “outraged”. Fa**ot, noose, ni**er, bleach nothing that is deemed derogatory was left out of this narrative all in -10 degrees

  • SeehereSeehere

    The president is brilliant. Here we have a black women arguing on behalf of alleged white male racist national terrorists. Please continue...

  • StoneColdLady

    And the bleach would have been frozen

  • Chicagowise

    I don't know what made me dream about this story. I think it's because I forgot to turn my radio on. For me, dead silence seems to created vivid and strange dreams.

  • NeverSurprised

    "What you want on yo sandwich again?"

    ???????????

  • SeehereSeehere

    This is the most interesting brand of “critical thinking” I’ve come across but, please, by all means— continue to make excuses for would be white male racist national terrorists. Someone should do a study on why black women haplessly protect would be white male racist national terrorists especially given Kamala Harris’ bid for the presidency.

  • Chicagowise

    Don't forget, she said, they were dress shoes!

  • Mielle Downey

    Here we have a confused person ignoring the fact that the Democrats created one terrorist group who wore a white hood to terrorize and the other who today wear a black hood. Oh how the Democrats have EVOLVED. Kkk and Antifa two of the most prized players in the suppression of freedom.

  • Mrs. King

    So Chicago isn’t killing people at a higher rate then most major big cities?

  • SeehereSeehere

    I’m just paying attention to how it works. I’m the first to admit it’s a stroke of genius on the president’s part.

  • Mielle Downey

    But I understand how weak minds like yours can be used as footstools for race pimps. The Democrats have the race pimp game on lockdown. I wish I would support people who raped and enslaved and terrorized my ansestors.

  • SeehereSeehere

    I will wait until all the evidence is gathered before arriving at a conclusion and let the chips fall where they may. In the meantime I decline to assume the alleged victim is a liar.

  • RespectSelf

    I think the story is just too perfect for public outrage... homophobic and racial slurs, noose tied around neck, white men, a gay black man, they yelling out MAGA. That is a perfect recipe. All the right things are being reported. But what this is really showing us is that folks feel like they are lied to so much that they don't know what or when to believe stuff.... Bleach poured on your face, but no redness.. no burns... All that really matters is that he is ok.

  • Anji

    I was sexually assaulted at a park's Art Walk just this pass Sunday. When asked by police for a description I was stopped when offering descriptions of his boys who watched as if it was a sporting event. I felt they should have some type of repercussions also.

  • Mielle Downey

    Exactly bleach thrown at someone on 20 below weather would sting and irritate so he is not telling the whole truth.even water will burn the skin

  • SeehereSeehere

    I’m amazed that in today’s time any black women could doubt that any would be white racist male national terrorist might take part in any sort of lynching activities especially after Charlottesville.

  • RespectSelf

    Black women aren't the only folks questioning this story.

  • RespectSelf

    lol

  • Mark mcharm

    You all are starting the train kind of early Trump is not winning again let it go Russian

  • SeehereSeehere

    This seems more like an inverted race card and to be honest it’s facinating. I’m just sitting back and trying to pay attention to how it all works. You should be happy. I gave your boss credit for being an evil genius. Why are you complaining?

  • SeehereSeehere

    They real slick tho. Give them credit for their dastardly devilish ways. Truly genius.

  • Ghost

    No! There are 23 cities that are more dangerous then Chicago! Chicago is the 24th most dangerous city! Just had this argument last week! I am a native Chicagoan and I LOVE my city. I have lived in other cities but when I get the chance I ALWAYS come back home.

  • SeehereSeehere

    Of interest to me strictly speaking is- how did the president manage to convince black women to viciously argue on behalf of would be white male racist national terrorists. Fascinating and no small feat indeed.

  • Mark mcharm

    Don't know whether he was attacked or not but some black women are built different than back in the day. Hopefully someone is caught then it could end the speculation on all fronts.

  • MsSapphire9800

    Lawd...are we still debating this issue....first..the grainy video of the couple an hour prior to him leaving the hotel...yes the one on the right is a woman..look at the figure and she has a shoulder bag...now the unknown nosy neighbor...comes up with this unreal story....When someone can explain why a person would be carrying bleach and a clothesline at 2 am in sub-degree weather...than this whole scenerio will make sense to me.

  • SeehereSeehere

    Russian trolls going off group-think theory. Well played! [slow hand clap]

  • Mielle Downey

    Because I'm not controlled by the Democrats ventriloquist.

  • RespectSelf

    lol the president convinced them... This is a joke

  • currvalicious

    If this didn't happen, his career is over. Along w/whomever he colluded with.

  • currvalicious

    No they don't.

  • RespectSelf

    make it make sense!!! lol

  • Mielle Downey

    As black people it is easier for people in general to misunderstand us. We don't all look alike and we don't always think alike. It is hard for simple minds like Seehere to comprehend. Micro agression is all the rage for liberals. It help them with thier manipulations games.

  • Sassie

    So he knew he was being stalked, yet left a hotel at 2am ALONE? Yeah right.

  • currvalicious

    Very thorough assessment.

  • currvalicious

    Sounds like S&M gone wrong to me.

  • NeverSurprised

    This is what I've wanted to see -- his demeanor when he returned to the building. If he was in fact attacked, he would have been walking differently, holding his ribcage, something! But no media outlet is asking any questions. They are simply accepting his story as fact. .He has been turned into an untouchable martyr.

  • Harley

    How do you know who is a black woman on a public forum?? Your making the same assumptions your passing judgement on...

  • Harley

    How do you know who is a black woman on a public suit forum over the internet you troll?

  • chaisun

    At who’s hands? White demons again. Slavery and domestic servantry are two different things. No other group has suffered for OVER 400 years, suffered through colonialism in every single African country the Caribbean and all across the diaspora, redlining, apartheid, Leopold of Belgium, Jim Crowe, chemical and vaccine warfare, purposeful racism and bigotry etc etc etc etc. This you people have done just for fun for centuries. You devils were servants and still taking part in the destruction of Black slaves. You were still raping, beating and enjoying every second of being the foreman. Then you were freed in 7 years or less with funding, knowing your name, heritage, language and where you’re from. You devils can keep your white supremacy talking points for someone else.

  • Karen Brady

    Can any of you Roses spot the troll below? I'll see ya'll later.

  • Candance

    So the more i see this and read about it and consider the temperatures outside and this subservience video...IDK YO,,,, this looks funny! He must have really been fighting back he got a cute little scar on his face. lets see his knuckles...

  • Candance

    I don't think the believe him either. Where are the effects of the bleach? There are a lot of holes in this story. It sounds good for a 30 minute TV show but its not transparent enough to involve the public opinion. IDK Its all a little weird. I find it hard to believe a man of his status is walking out at 2am in that weather by himself to go to subway especially after he knew about "stalkers"

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Yes... Watch the second video if you can... Chick said she had a deek print in her pants when she went to the bathroom ??????

  • Ghost

    ?

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Your name reminds me of She by Sheree ?

  • Bonita

    Girl!! I was snow blowing and the wind blew the snow in my face! Oh my gosh, my nose has never felt pain like that. I think I had freezer burn! I ran in the house to try and warm up my cute little nose, and it took forever.

  • Yoni7

    A deek print HOW? How do you get a deek print in YOUR pants? Like was it dirty or something and left a stain? You know what? I'll pass.

  • ingridbergman

    Exactly!!! I was about to write that!

  • Bonita

    Not at all. It's fake news. I don't know why Chicago has been targeted since Trump has come into office. The lies all started with him.

  • NeverSurprised

    Actually, household bleach freezes at 18 to 19 degrees Fahrenheit. Since it was 20 below, it would have been impossible for it to still be liquid, so yet another lie.

  • VernadineTheQueen?

    Oh, so why Jussie would not turn over the phone to authorities. Hmmm...Yea okay....

  • NeverSurprised

    Bleach that freezes at 19 degrees Fahrenheit somehow managed to remain "liquid" in subzero temps!! Lol!! They will really need the uneducated masses to close ranks and stand "united in ignorance" if they want to pull this off.

  • TDK

    ??????

  • StoneColdLady

    How the heck did he make it to the hotel WITH BLEACH INHIS FACE?? ???

  • StoneColdLady

    Catch 22 because if he doesn’t investigate this “hate crime” blacks AND the gay community will want his head

  • TDK

    Right!! My BS meter went off right away. He’s lying. All his supporters will be looking dumb out here.

  • jwoo250

    I wonder if he was meeting someone at 2a?? Also, if someone who is racist is coming after you. They are going to do a whole lot of damage especially if their were two.

    Think about it if you got two racist white men with bleach and noose. They are going to truly try and mess you up. I'm talking about stomping of the face, punching and they would of made sure that bleach would really get where it needed to be. In fact he shouldn't have been able to move at all. He's not that big of a guy. And where are the rope burns at?

    I've seen men do more damage to their wives doing a domesticate dispute. And he's light skinned which means bruises show up more. He should be badly hurt. Especially if they were out to damage him. They would of nearly killed him. Looks like he got in a fight with a child to me. And ski mask. Yeah okay.

    I need more evidence but my CSI senses is going crazy over here. And you better believe there's a detective in Chi-town thinking all of what I'm thinking.

  • ?? Kari ?????????

    Sounds to me like he had a date gone wrong!

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Oh welll...one day they'll need help and help won't be found.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Mines are too...also bleach freezes in extreme cold weather...IDK where he got the bleach thrown at but I would think the doctors would have to treat them as sever burns due to him being in the cold...something aint right...

  • ClaireHuxtable

    2005?? So he's been a nasty f00l for a lonnng time!

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    I agree..this is bad for Chicago because they make alot of money in the film and tv industry...almost all of the DC films have a Chicago backdrop not to mention other film franchises...if this comes out as Jussie trying to hookup on grindr and got his azz whipped they should cancel the whole show....

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Chile...dont forget Gayle in the back...

  • ClaireHuxtable

    I wouldn't be surprised at all if Lee's slimey self had something to do with it! Ratings!

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    They are trying to spin this so bad...I read that he didn't even tell them the attackers had on MAGA hats his PR person did then he changed the narrative...I really think he went to go hookup with someone and was so high and rude that they kicked his azz...

  • INDUSTRY GURU

    In Entertainment there is one gauruntee when it comes to celebrity.

    There is ALWAYS SPIN.The IMAGE of a show, movie, or celebrity personality is ALWAYS controlled. This is no conspiracy it is fact.

    The higher the profile, the higher the stakes at hand - The higher the level of Spin.

    Having said that, yes, of course this is NOT the whole story. Protocol is to call your agent or manager first way before law enforcement is called. Here the spin begins.

    Yes, Lee Daniels hands and agenda are all over this. Based on what Ive seen and heard about this, its drug related.What it has grown to be about in the media is whole different story.

    Sal Alinsky Rules for Radicals (1971) - "Never let a good crisis go to waste."

    "Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have." "Never go outside the expertise of your people."

  • Parent

    Sandra, you had me dying when you posted a sketch of the suspects on twitter.com. You are a wild girl! lol

  • Parent

    Another note, Jussie need to download ubereats or something. Noone aint eem trying to go to Subway that late a night. Especially if you have a lil celebrity.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    I hope they have a place UNDER the jail for this male AND his "friends". This is sick. They have no regard for being human and civil.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    I couldn't watch all this stuff. It left me drained.

    This is a game to these people.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    You stay dropping that knowledge ?

  • Mielle Downey

    Marxist and socialists are taking over themedia. They like to manipulate things to fit thier narrative. When you dont go along with set narrative you are called a conspiracy theorist or right wing looney. The Frankfort school has meticulously maintained its place in socialist left wing parties. Edward Bernays was the father of this political propaganda.

  • B.Loveitt

    Congrats my dad step- dad went there.

  • TheOwley

    I would like to see the Chicago PD invest half of this much effort in cleaning up the gang warfare going on in this town, the genocide of the black community by black people themselves. Nobody cares. But an actor says he got assaulted and all hell breaks lose.

    And what are two white men doing in Chicago at 2am risking to get shot and killed in this dangerous town. Maybe it was those Covington kids or better yet, Russians. They are good for this. But really, Smollett broke my BS o-meter. He owes me a new one.

  • the guest

    The Devils Work. Exactly. This whole thing is propaganda manipulation.

  • the guest

    You won’t get dragged. Because it’s a straight up lie.

  • Reina1718

    I need 2 see an attack or something...those 2 could be anyone walking by....

  • 2gr8ful

    Where is the white bleach bottle in these images? Maybe they had the travel bottle sizes so that is why we can’t see them if these are indeed the suspects.

  • Reina1718

    & those eyes would be red for a few days!

  • Reina1718

    Rite lol they jus randomly had bleach on them & jus knew he was about to come outside?? Maybe it was Lee Daniels & his new boy toy, the one who does flips in heels

  • grenadiadrian
  • 2gr8ful

    You want to get to the laundromat when the crowd is gone and to save money on the dryers you bring your own clothes line to wait it out??

  • 2gr8ful

    Every 4 hours lol

  • Passion

    Did he have bleach thrown on him or at him, and was bleach in his clothes or the smell of bleach?

    How was he able to drive/walk to a friends house after being assaulted with bleach, rope and physically beaten and breaking your ribs!

    It took me 6+ weeks to heal from fractured ribs!

  • Reenaface

    lmao

  • EMILY POST

    I think the Russians picked him up and poured bleach on him! Cause he was giving cookie on Empire too many problems.

  • Elevated Soul

    The only reason he is getting so much attention is because he gets his butt plugged or perhaps he's a top plugging the butt of another man.

    The two randoms had no bleach/rope or ski mask.It's already been reported that they are in the clear.Smollett stated that "he was talking to his manager", when the supposed term "MAGA" was used but now he refuses to turn over his phone to authorities which is indicative that he's lying about talking with his manager.

  • TheOwley

    I'm more concerned about infanticide becoming legal in this country than this guy.

  • Elevated Soul

    So am I!!!!!

    That mess is pure evil and that is just one of the reasons why I just can not support the left. They are Godless and want to kill the most innocent who just come among us,as well as those in the womb!

    I can't support a party who support the murder of babies.I'm in my 20's and just because a Godmother of a very sweet baby.

    Donald Trump has finally broken his silence on the vicious racist and homophobic attack upon Jussie Smollett. After being asked about the attack by journalist April Ryan, Trump responded, “That I can tell you is horrible. It doesn’t get worse,”

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    YAAWWWN!!!

  • INDUSTRY GURU

    Interesting comment. Most Americans simply watch, read, and listen to the Media without using any critical thinking. No questions asked, no conscious thought of any hidden agenda. People seem brain washed,even brain dead, add the fact that we are the most medicated society in world.

    Is this why we are here, where we are today as an" American Society" today.What next, what is the next level given our current state.

  • Keekz

    Why is April Ryan asking about J Smollett. She’s just another example of a wasted position. Federal Government (the chief employer of ADOS) employees are facing another possible shutdown and the senate may not vote for a 2%pay raise. As well as a host of other issues regarding black people, and this is the ish this Apple bodied chick asks......Just a waste

  • Keekz

    Not the travel sized ??

  • Keekz

    Preach ????????.

  • wigmon68

    I haven't seen this asked or answered, but police have released images and spoken of seeing these individuals on video before the attack. Have they said how they left the scene and which direction they took, or whether they even saw them again after the attack? haven't seen it reported, so if not, how is it possible they never pick the guys up on video again?

    What I am getting at is that the most likely explanations for those 2 individuals being in the area on a night like that would be because they either lived in the area, were homeless individuals looking for a place of shelter, or they were contacted to come to that area. I am not saying its impossible that they were just in the area for an attack if they were stalking someone, but how in the world would they know that the dude was going to be in the area, walking to subway at 2 in the morning on a frigid night? Only 2 of those theories make any sense if there is no evidence of them walking away. They either they live in the building, or whoever called them to the area had them stay until morning.

  • wigmon68

    sure they catch criminals, but they don't stop them before committing the crimes. I have no way of verifying the veracity of the statement, but cpd has stated the cameras have helped them solve thousands of cases so it sounds like they do make good use of them.

  • Ryan

    Just not in this case, in a high profile area. Weird.

  • SweetTEE

    Actually, neither. It was mostly just a name. I've known him since we went to high school & you would never think he was like this...but I saw 20 secs of both videos, listened to both sides and I'm outdone.

  • SweetTEE

    You would never think it if you didn't see it with your own eyes. I'm disturbed that my intuition never picked up that he was a predator

  • Renee26

    I had a bad dream about this mess last night. The girl that shared her account of him date raping her said that mf seemed cool and he kept sayin he got his ish together and didn't have to rape nobody... Goes to show it's a power trip for him. May he rot in prison!

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Opportunity, immorality & lust take over...and there you go.

  • SweetTEE

    Exactly.. I agree. And I know the kind of swag too (even though the mugshot is a hot mess- he's not bad looking in person at all)...there is NO way she could have suspected. I promise you would think he was nice. Ish is scary.

    Edit bleach freezes at only 19 * it was -21*

  • Mielle Downey

    He was supporting his fellow greek Kamala too. This why I dont trust celebrities unless they giving fashion and even that is questionable because they have stylists.
