Jussie Smollett, Lee Daniels

Lee Daniels spoke out about the alleged racial, homophobic attack on Empire star Jussie Smollet that occurred early Tuesday in Chicago. Smollett, 36, had arrived in Chicago Monday night. He was on his way to get something to eat at 2 a.m. when he was allegedly attacked.

Sources tell WENN.com two masked men recognized Smollett from his role as openly homosexual singer/songwriter Jamal Lyon on Empire, and shouted, "Aren't you that f**got Empire n**ger?"

Police claim the suspects began beating Smollett and poured bleach on him, before tying a rope as a noose around his neck.

Smollett drove himself to the hospital. He was discharged in "good condition" after receiving treatment for minor injuries including a cracked rib.

"It's taken me a minute to come to social media about this because, Jussie, you are my son," an emotional Daniels said in a video on his Instagram page on Tuesday.

Daniels, who is openly homosexual, captioned the video, "We got this @jussiesmollett," alongside a rainbow flag and two Black power symbols.

Daniels added: "You didn't deserve - nor anybody deserves - to have a noose put around your neck; to have bleach thrown on you; to be called 'die fa--ot, ni--a,' or whatever they said to you. We are better than that. You are better than that. America is better than that. It starts at home."

Smollett, 36, is in Chicago to film the upcoming season of Empire. Daniels is the creator and director of the scripted TV series.

    That's probably why he refused an ambulance - so police can't scour the real scene of the alleged crime.

  • Hazel

    All the more reason that random racists wouldn't be hanging out in the middle of the night, with a noose, looking for Jussie. I suspect that he was baited outside...perhaps Tender or something. If so, I hope he tells the truth. Others could be in danger.

  • joel adams

    So, he couldn’t just call him. Had to get on the gram huh?

  • Dun Dilly

    Hmmmm...looks like the "Homophobic Racist Guy" is the new "BLACK GUY DID IT" excuse for domestic cover ups and risky behavior gone wrong situations.

    He has one little scratch on his face that looks self-inflicted with his pinky nail. ?

  • Marlika

    I feel like he’s trying to get credit and make a name for himself. Like the ugly lady behind the #mee top movement. She’s constantly letting everyone know she started the movement instead of focusing more on the issues at hand.

  • Thingamajig

    I said the same thing... also, who gets food at 2am?

  • Renee26

    Bruh...you didn't have to come to social media about this at all... But ok, put the attention on you instead.

  • Renee26

    He did....he attention whoring

  • KcoolMuziq

    I can’t believe ALL of U are insinuating including the “editor” that this is made up publicity. He could have gotten murdered. Smh

  • Kayke

    Not saying this didn’t happen, but was he being followed? It’s weird some random people just happen to be chillin at 2am with some bleach and a rope, waiting to assault a gay black person.

  • Renee26

    Ion think so ?

  • Renee26

    I had a few cousins nickname me Hollywood simply because when I came around I still had on my business clothes from work. I was stuck up etc cause I've got my adult life together... Oh well

  • Allihave2say

    Lee Daniels has a nasty dick riding spirit. He can't just pose in a picture with another man in a normal healthful manner. He has to always be a reflection of lust for men in public. Lee is so tasteless and classless.

  • Renee26

    Shameful.... He has nothing to gain by making this up.

  • Fire & Ice

    Hmmmm

  • Fire & Ice

    That's bone chilling to be out at 2am

  • Coy little wink

    absolutely! I might not have a million bucks but I shole look like it! Its just my style ?

  • Allihave2say

    RWS reported he has a broken rib. Is that not true? They also reported he was at a Subway when masked men approached him, stated it's MAGA country, and other racial and sexually charged statements. Are these things not true?

  • Allihave2say

    Be patient she'll let us know sooner or later which pics she photoshopped. Lee is very believable because he breathes desperation to be up on a man.

  • Coy little wink

    He drove himself to the hospital and was released in good condition....sounds like minor injuries to me

    but he was hungry...butt-busting will do that I guess! bm smh what happened why is it that the demons of liberalism attack our men...oh I forgot it is a decison and homosexuality is normal...smh

  • Eileen

    sickening shame on bm

  • TMW

    I was about to say, can you “see” his bruised/busted ribs and aches and pains? That the only indication of his assault is a single scratch on his face? I tripped and fell the other day, sprained my big toe, body aches on 10, hurts like he!l, but I guess it didn’t happen because you don’t see a scar. Ok. ?????

  • Allihave2say

    He's so desperate, narcissistic, and perverted. Gross.

  • Melanated Goddess??

    How does someone get bleach thrown on them, a broken rib , a noose tied around their neck, And still be able to drive themselves to the hospital? Why didn't he call an ambulance? This story sounds highly suspect.

  • TMW

    You wanna sit there where you just got attacked and wait for an ambulance? He probably had an adrenaline rush - it happens.

  • TMW

    Somebody laying in wait to do something foul to somebody.

  • Prettybrowneyes

    Not even trying to make light of the situation buuuuut....that pic makes me think I know how Jussie got that role ?. Disturbing, and I used to respect Lee back in the day ?

  • Melanated Goddess??

    Who said anything about him sitting there? He's a "celebrity " had he called an ambulance he would've gotten one right away. Also bleach burns in high quantities. You mean to tell me none of that bleach got into his eyes or any other openings in his body? Mouth, nose, ears etc. Yet it was poured on to him? Interesting. Oh yeah where's the noose?

  • Chicagowise

    This story doesn't seem plausible.

  • TMW

    The bleach may not have come into contact with skin. The story said it was 2 AM and he was alone. Our first reaction to danger is usually fight, flight or freeze. No one can say what they would do until they are in that situation. But I could see me trying to get safe and then realizing I’m hurt and need to go to the hospital.

    There are cameras everywhere and this is no longer just a story on the black blogs. It has made national news. One way or the other other, facts will come out. I don’t see why anyone would make this up.

  • Topic Influencer

    I...dont like to discount you know? But if you, as a black gay man FROM Chicago is calling bullshit, Imma ride with you. And I hardly EVER agree with you.

  • TMW

    When you try to apply ration and common sense - neither of those apply to what’s going on in the world today. A lot of what’s going on in the world doesn’t seem plausible, but we are living in the new Jim Crow.

  • Topic Influencer

    I agree with new Jim Crow. A thousand percent. But....since when did Chicago..become MAGA country? Rural country Illinois maybe. But Chi town city limits?

  • TMW

    More people won’t watch Empire or by the singles because Jamal was attacked. He has nothing to gain, but to be called a liar apparently.

  • Topic Influencer

    Before fleeing the scene, one of the men wrapped a rope around Smollett’s neck, as if forming a noose. They then yelled, “This is MAGA country.”
    ^^^^^^
    This is where the red flag went up for me personally.

    Chicago is KNOWN for their amount of black elected officials and has not had a Republican mayor...since the 1920s. The TWENTIES. Let that sizzle on your spirit. Not saying this didn't happen. But just seems far fetched and out of place to me

  • Melanated Goddess??

    The fact that you have to think too hard to come up with excuses, for him tells me something in the milk isn't clean. His story sounds like half truths and lies.

  • Li-Wright

    It seems there may be surveillance cam proof. He fought back, so maybe he got some dna. I just wonder if this is the first time being attacked?

  • TMW

    I didn’t think hard at all - don’t know how you made that leap.

    No one has ever put a noose around my neck or poured bleach on me, but I have been in situations where I felt unsafe, and my first priority was to get safe and then process.

  • Chicagowise

    If they had robbed him, took his coat, shot him, stabbed him, maced him or took his food, I wouldn't hesitate to believe him, but... a noose and bleach?! I think something happened, but not the way he described it. He probably got involved in a freaky hookup that went left.

  • Topic Influencer

    I hope it is released quickly. Til then Jussie getting the side eye. I'm just not trusting of celebs automatically anymore

    "Next year, half of Illinois’s statewide officials will be African American: Lieutenant Governor Juliana Stratton, Secretary of State Jesse White, and Attorney General Kwame Raoul.

    In any other state, this would be remarkable. But not in Illinois. In fact, we’re America’s capital of black political empowerment.

    Illinois has sent more African Americans to Congress — 18 — than any other state, and the count isn’t even close."

    http://www.chicagomag.com/city-life/November-2018/Why-Illinois-Is-the-Mecca-of-Black-Political-Power/

    But MAGA country. Ok.

  • Melanated Goddess??

    I didn't make a leap. I've seen people get jumped and they came out with more than a scratch on their face. He got bleach thrown on to him, broken ribs, and a noose tied around his neck. Yet his ass was discharged with a scratch on his face? His story doesn't add up. Not saying he didn't get hurt, but I don't think all of that actually took place. Celebrities have been known to lie about less for attention.

  • Melanated Goddess??

    You know it's a cold day in hell when that font starts making sense. I don't believe the story jussie selling either.

  • TMW

    I agree about the celebs part. I guess I don’t really consider him a celeb though. And I actually watch and like Empire.

    I’m talking about this leap - “the fact that you have to think too hard to come up with excuses for him.”

    I’m not invested in the issue either way. I just have a different opinion. Just dialoguing, not defending the story in any way.

    A Chicago Police spokesperson told The Daily Beast that the attackers’ genders are unknown, and that their faces and hands had been covered. TMZ reported that the attackers shouted “This is MAGA country,” but police told the Beast, “There is no report of that being said.”

    This is all true, but you still have areas in Chicago that are very racist, Bronzeville, Lincoln Park, North Side. I don't know about them shouting out MAGA country though. He did rec some hate mail only 8 days ago telling him he was going to die and all that. Maybe they stalked his instagram saw that he was back in town and thought here's the chance. Gotta stop putting your every move on sosha media!! I think it was just 2 randoms that don't like his character on the show and this was the outcome.

    I don’t trust Lee Daniels.

    When I watch Empire, I feel a concern for all young men working on that show. I don’t know why but I find Lee Daniels personality to be sneaky and disingenuous.

    Point. Blank. Period.

  • Dowoop

    I get food at 2am but if I had to walk to get it then it's out of the question.

  • Bashi22

    Just saw a picture of Jessie face a little scratch.

  • Mrs. S. O.

    Bronzeville is a Black neighborhood. It is not racist nor is it very affluent. I think you meant another neighborhood.

  • Mrs. S. O.

    You respected Lee Daniels at one point? ?. Lee has always been suspect & seems like he does the casting couch thing all the time.

  • Chicagowise

    One report states he was attacked near a Target store. I live in this area, and the only Target here is at 401 E Illinois Street. Another story says, he was jumped at N. New Street and East North Water Street. That location is several blocks south of Target. Jesse lives in this area, why are there conflicting accounts of where the incident occurred? They also say Jesse was attacked at 2 am, but when he made contact with police around 2:40 am, he still had a rope around his neck?! Who does that? Who leaves a noose around there neck, 40 minutes after being assaulted?

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    You are absolutely correct. I meant Bridgeport. And I typed Bronzeville just as proudly.

  • Ni Ni

    I'm sure something happened to him, but i'll believe his narrative only if video is produced. I'm tired of seeing black folks getting riled up over stories someone made up to cover up they mess.

  • Mrs. S. O.

    The fact that they didn't rob him is indeed suspicious. Robbery & theft is huge in Chicago. Hate crimes just for the sake of hate doesn't sound right.

  • Chicagowise

    There's video of him walking by himself.

  • Mrs. S. O.

    Serious question: what about Lee's work made you proud? I always found his form of dysfunctional entertainment quite low brow.

    Ummm IDK and I didn't want to make any speculations until all the facts came out. I did say under another comment that it sounded hella random. I was just offering options as to what's open at 2am in Chicago. #thatsall

  • Chicagowise

    At 2 am, he probably went to meet an online hookup that turned out to be more than he bargained for. Rather than face the truth, he made up a story about Donald Trump supporters throwing bleach on him.

  • Topic Influencer

    Sounds like a male Tawana Brawley

  • Ni Ni

    Shame on him IF he made up this up and Lee too if he's in on it. You know folks are eager to react without details and possibly ruin an innocent person's life...like that story we had a few weeks ago abou the mother and her daughters got shot at.

  • Panther Charleston

    Is his name pronounced Juicy?

  • the guest

    Exactly what I said. He was going to meet someone. That someone betrayed his trust and set him up to be attacked. This was a robbery gone wrong. This was done by people in his circle. They covered their tracks by making it out to be a hate crime. I think it was jealous greedy gay men in his circle who tried to rob him.

What white man is walking around in -20 degree weather with bleach and ropes attacking black men? how could you tell if this man is gay was he wearing a shirt that said "I am gay"? Gay celebrities hunt dick all the time at night in parks and he just hooked up with the wrong one. He got beat up yet just got one little scratch on his eye!

There have never been any incidents like that committed against gays in Chicago. He's so full of isht!

  • Li-Wright

    From TMZ:
    -- We're told cops recently visited a
    Target Department Store close to where the incident happened and
    obtained surveillance footage. Our source says the video shows one
    person -- presumably Jussie -- walking down the street. Officers also
    visited a nearby apartment building to ask for video.
    Hmmm.....The nearest Target downtown is on State Street; this attack happened on Lower Wacker drive, which is quite a walking distance from Target. Could he have been followed? It's damn cold as hell in Chicago and I don't understand this timeline with him going to Target and then to Subway and then walking home....you need a fur coat on and some UGG boots to walk around.

    I said from the outset that if someone wanted to choose a "famous gay person" to attack in order to send a message, there are FAR more prominent gays than him. Most people don't even k ow whk Jussie Smollet is, much less take the time to follow him around with bleach and a noose.

    This is just anither attempt by the gay mafia to link the "gay cause" with injustice against blacks. They will use anything to try to get average black folks to think the two groups face similar struggles when in fact they have NOTHING to do with each other.

  • NeverSurprised

    "... alongside a rainbow flag and two Black power symbols."

    Please stop trying to make black folks think our struggle is in any way comparable to the "gay cause." It is not.

    White gay and trannie men are the MOST protected class in this country, thanks to Obama's non-stop efforts Just LOOK at one of them the wrong way, or dare to tell the TRUTH about what they biologically are, and you are fired, ostracized, you name it. When black folks start wielding that kind of societal power, let me know.

    Great analysis, Chi. We need more input from people like you who live in the area and can provide a timeline as to where things are located, how far he would have walked, and why he would have walked all the way BACK to his apartment to drive HIMSELF to the hospital if this occurred several blocks away.

  • NeverSurprised

    ????

  • Ladyshopper

    EXACTLY!!

  • NeverSurprised

    The police were there. THEY would have called the ambulance and waited with him, so no need for "flight" on his part. But if he WAS injured, why would he WALK ALL THE WAY BACK TO HIS BUILDING TO GET INTO HIS CAR AND DRUVE HIMSELF TO THE HOSPITAL? There isn't a shred of logic in that scenario.

    "Alleged attack" folks Jossie beat himself up "Alleged attack." I pray he makes a full recovery from his "attempted suicide" which can be intetpreted as an "alleged attack." They will find the animals, and I hope they are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

    But he won't be. Christine Ford's lies earned her over $1 million in go fund me donations. Jussie's will earn him more work in Hollywood. So long as the lies fit the agenda, they will be accepted and rewarded.

  • Li-Wright

    I'm going to be a conspiracy theorist. But on the news, it was reported that the police have looked at hundreds of surveillance cams and can't id the perps. They do have one video of Jussey in Target, which is on State St., quite a ways from Water Street and where it apparently took place (under the viaduct). And how is it that somebody was walking with BLEACH or some kind of liquid to throw on somebody else? If they had bleach why didn't they set him on fire? Now, here's where my conspiracy antenna comes in....he lives with another dude in a downtown hotel/apt (or so its reported). Could it be they had a lover's spat? I mean, Jussey was attacked and he didn't call the police or run for HELP? he walked himself to Northwestern Hospital, which is another few blocks away. And nobody saw him?

  • Li-Wright

    The police have looked at hundreds of surveil cams.....nothing. like you I'm suspicious.

  • Renee26

    If it was a case of him hooking up with someone and they attacked him... he still got attacked which is still a crime.

  • Li-Wright

    ^^ This.

  • NeverSurprised

    The sad thing is, NO ONE will be allowed to question his story. If you do not accept this completely illogical story as "fact", you will be called a "racist homophobe."

    Jussie will now become a martyr and will be rewarded with a new record deal or a high profile film role. Anyone who makes a significant contribution to the "We Hate Trump" campaign is rewarded. Christine Ford was rewarded with over $1 mil for her lies, and Jussie will be similarly rewarded for his.

  • Renee26

    ? ? ?

  • Renee26

    For privacy maybe... He may not have wanted this story to get this much attention. He took himself to the hospital to get checked out (prob from inhaling the fumes not so much the scratch). Plus he hasn't given a statement. I think the man wants privacy.

  • Li-Wright

    According to other reports he walked to Northwestern Hospital. So which happened first?
    1. He got a Subway. 2 He walked outside and was jumped? 3. He went back to Subway to call police? 4. They interviewed him and took him to Northwestern - or he took himself?
    "The detectives have looked at hundreds of tapes and cannot id anyone."
    Even TMZ is suspicious of his account.

  • Li-Wright

    Normally the police drive you to the hospital, you don't walk there.

  • Prettybrowneyes

    He seemed normal when he made Shadow Boxer. Don't judge me ??

  • Renee26

    You have nice police in your area then cause in my city they make a report and dip. If you want an ambulance they'll call for one but they aren't doing any transporting anywhere but to the processing center.

  • Renee26
  • NeverSurprised

    It's also a crime to file a false police report, which is what he did if his story is untrue.

  • Li-Wright

    Let me clarify. He's a "star" and the police would have given him a courtesy ride. And you're right, they would have called EMT to carry him to the hospital.

  • 2gr8ful

    So he transported himself to the hospital but decided to walk at 2am for food? Listen I want to believe this story and if this happened that is sad but what celebs you know go out of town and go walking for food at 2am??? That’s what Door Dash is for.

    Don’t know of course if it’s true or not but what would he gain from lying. Not like he was about to get arrested and if he was ashamed for anything he would go hide somewhere.

    It’s so off the wall it may be true. Ppl stay lying so who knows though. Lee Daniels can’t conduct business. That’s very inappropriate for a professional relationship. Handle your business.

    IDK who took or posted his pics. I can't imagine the suffering. Shoot I get injured regularly and my husband be mad af. He can't understand how I'm so clumsy, I am because I stay over active. Auntie said he had a self inflicted scratch under his eye (allegedly - alluded to).

  • Sunshine ///

    Nothing wrong with showing support. I understand Lee Daniels frustration and anger but he still creeps me out. He gives me flashbacks of creepy older men whether it was family or my parents friends from my childhood. That uncomfortable feeling when your stomach sinks. The top pic and the one with Puffy is off putting.
    They smiling and taking innocent pics to support a smart, black producer all the while he's acting like a girl in love.

    Control that lust in front of the cameras! ?
