Jussie Smollet

Actor Jussie Smollett was still wearing a thin rope looped around his neck when Chicago police arrived at his friend's apartment, about 45 minutes after he was allegedly attacked by 2 men early Tuesday.

Police responding to a report of an assault in the 300 block of E. North Water Street around 2:45 a.m. collected the small rope as evidence.

A police source described the rope as a "thin clothesline, straight out of the package.”

The "Empire" star reportedly told police to turn off their body cameras before he gave his statement, saying he was attacked by two men wearing ski masks as he walked to a 24-hour Subway to get a bite to eat around 2 a.m.

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

He claimed the suspects beat him up, tied a "noose" around his neck and threw bleach in his face before fleeing on foot.

The temperature in downtown Chicago that night was a bone chilling -12 degrees with a wind chill factor that felt like -15 degrees. Bleach freezes instantly at those temperatures.

Smollett refused an ambulance ride and drove himself to the hospital, where he was treated for minor injuries.

"Empire" creator and director Lee Daniels posted an image from a video chat with Smollett that showed a light scratch on his face. No other injuries were visible.

TMZ created confusion and outrage by reporting the suspects yelled, "This is MAGA Country" during the alleged attack. But the Chicago police denied TMZ's version of the facts.

Chicago residents also dismissed the notion of marauding Trump supporters running around a city that's known as a Democratic stronghold.

Police recovered video surveillance footage from cameras in the area that shows the actor alone around 2 a.m. So far, there is no footage of the alleged attack.

In an updated statement on Tuesday night, Chicago police tweeted, "detectives expanded the search area for cameras to be able to provide photos of the alleged assailants in this attack. Thus far, no video of the alleged assailants or a vehicle has been discovered but we are continuing to broaden our search."

The FBI has joined the investigation after it was reported that Smollett received a threatening letter at Fox studios in the days leading up to the alleged attack.

The envelope, on which the sender wrote "MAGA" in red marker, looked like it was written by a child.

There was an outpouring of support on Twitter.com for the actor. But many Twitter users are skeptical of the details of the attack.

Despite his minor injuries, Smollett is scheduled to perform in concert at The Troubadour in West Hollywood on Saturday, the concert promoter confirmed.

"We're going on with the show as far as we know, until we hear anything different," said Paul Kacik, a booker for Sean Healy Presents, when reached by the L.A. Times early Tuesday afternoon.

The Times reports that Smollett plugged the concert on social media on Monday, hours before the alleged attack.

As of Tuesday afternoon, tickets to the concert (starting at $20) were still available, according to The Times.

  • WhoKnew

    I watched one episode of Empire when it first aired and I was done. I honestly have not watched another episode since, so I don't know if their ratings are way down or if he is trying to promote a new film or music and desperately needed a career boost or the show needed a boost but I think I'm about to be the newest member of the skeptical club called "this here shyt smells fishy".

    I ain't saying that this didn't happen - I AM saying that I feel like there's something amiss about this version of events. It just doesn't make sense. I grew up getting my ass two-pieced by that Chicago Hawk and I REFUSE to believe that two people were walking around at 2 am with rope and bleach waiting for Jussie Smollet. It's cold ASF in Chicago at 2am when it's 40 degrees... it's -10 and dudes waiting around outside with bleach, rope and, MAGA hats? Even homeless people ain't outside in those temperatures.
    I feel like Jussie may have gotten his ass whooped - and he knows WHO whooped it. JMO

  • oshh16

    You know....walking anywhere solo at night is no bueno esp up in them scary hours.

  • Chicagowise

    Someone needs to get a warrant to search his cellphone and laptop (if he has one). That will save the city of Chicago a ton of money and time. I'm sure he has hookup apps on his phone.

  • Yoni7

    JEEEEENNNNNIEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!! YASSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! When he was like "threw bleach on him." I was like "bleach? BLEEEAAAACCHHHH??? Whurr? When?"

  • BingBangBoom

    Yup! I googled searched 24 hour subways in downtown Chicago and I found 3. Just wondering which one was near his crib. But I'm not sure you understand how cold it is in the Midwest.. The highest person and best grade weed wouldn't have no one walking at 2:45 am Maybe Uber eats. He's been complaining about the cold in Chicago. They are comparing the weather to Antarctica so I'm not sure.

    I been hitting all my Chi fam and friends up saying to be safe etc after I saw on SUNDAY that Chicago gonna be colder than Antarctica, Alaska and the North Pole all this week. So cosgin. I am not sure about an ass whooping. Last post on him Sandra said he had a scratch so lil on his face looks like he got in a fight with a newborn kitten. I think it was rough anon sex gone wrong and/or some drugs involved.

  • Reenaface

    A few things stood out to me in this article because the narrative keeps changing.
    First, it went from him going to Subway to him going to a 24 hour Subway. -Most cities don't have 24 hour Subways at least mine don't.
    Second, it said that the attackers recognized him from the show "Empire". - Well, if they recognized him why did they ask him " Aren't you the guy from the Empire show" for further confirmation especially if you were supposedly there with the intent to cause harm?
    Third, I thought that exposure to bleach especially on the skin caused damage and his face looks fine. No visible skin damage.
    Basically, we've seen this faux outrage before three weeks ago with the Jasmine Barnes case that people stopped talking about. The elites must be bored.?????

    They're influenced by the elite because they all work for the same globalist/cabalistic network. And as far as the threatening letters that were sent to Fox which is 666 in gematria.

    When the news first broke it went from the attackers putting a noose around his neck to now a thin rope? And he still lived to tell about it? Usually racists do that with the intent on killing a black person by hanging him from a tree. Where were they going to hang Jussie from, the street light at the end of the corner? WTF!
    And now the police are saying that TMZ exaggerated the "MAGA Country comments". Of course they did, TMZ is owned by the globalist/cabalist elites. They pull these Psyops-Psychological warfare techniques on black people all the time. Inducing fear with the noose thing, don't be surprised when nooses all of a sudden start sprouting up as a result like they did some years back.

  • NeverSurprised

    No it's not, because the media will never report that he lied. Like Christine Ford, his story will be treated as gospel and he will be rewarded by Hollywood for adding the MAGA lie.

    The ONLY way there will be a negative impact is if the police charge him with filing a false police report, and democrat-run Chicago's PD is not likely to do that. Now the FBI, on the other hand, may view concocting a hate crime story a little differently than CPD.

    The "I didn't know it would go this far..." IG video is going to pop up during a Superbowl. Watch.

    4. He was in Subway alone, no other sidekicks or bodyguards
    5. Was he trying to save Bennett college all by himself?

    It was 2am what the hell do ya think was open at 2am to eat?

    The area is a safe area it in the the downtown Chicago area which is very close to where the set is!

    Now TMZ are the ones who ran the story of MAGA supporters did this...that theory has yet to be proven...Now i am a bit confused as to how they knew where he was at and what time he was leaving and where was his friend at the whole time this happened???

  • wigmon68

    Well, there are only 2 things you can presume. He's either telling the truth or he isn't. I haven't presumed either at the moment, but you have to admit that the story as told is pretty sensational. currently no leads, no physical description of the attackers and no video evidence of an attack or anyone suspicious in the area the alleged attack occurred.

    I don't know whether he is lying or not. I acknowledge that either is a possibility.

    In order for the assumption to be made that this man is guilty rather than any would be assailants being assumed guilty the police would need to have a system in place whereby every square inch of the city is observable by cameras and thus being able to state with absolute certainty that it didn’t happen. How can such an assumption be made given the police clearly lack that ability? In fact I would like to see the exact extent to which the police are able to avail themselves of observable coverage of the entire city. If the police only have 3% access to such observations I say it is completely reckless of the police to put out such a statement. If we are to judge based on the Chicago police department’s history I have little confidence in their ability. Past is prologue.

    Yes. Hollywood is a microcosm of life. Human frailties exist in all industries. I was harassed in corporate America both sexually and racially. Entertainment field has allowed to flourish and profit handsomely. I love being surrounded by creative people, the lights, the roar the smell of greasepaint...and the financial aspects. Love getting paid for something I did a half century ago. Downsides everywhere. Hollywood doesn't have a monopoly on strange behavior. Drama and lies make great fiction. Fiction perpetrated as reality occurs everyday, everywhere for many purposes. If Jussie has strayed from truth it is his personal character at fault. An entire industry should not be demonized.

If this does come out 'less than truthful', some folks need to take a deep breath and pause, before being so quick to rush to judgment, eapecially when something seems off from the door. Screaming RACISM and HOMOPHOBIA before even knowing all the facts.

But I guess it’s easy to assume he’s lying because he’s black and gay, right? ?

    Hmmm...sounds like one of two things is happening in this situation. My first thought is Mr. Smollett is suffering some kind of emotional breakdown as a result of his relationship with Mr. Daniels. This includes a calculated attention agenda as his way of exposing Mr. Daniels in a HUGE #METOO moment. Now my second guess is that Mr. Smollett is on some kind of drugs and is making all of this stuff up. Whoever sent that little note is definitely responsible for this "attack."

Or do they only have access to 3% observable coverage of cameras at all times of the day and night? Are the cameras owned by the city? If not who owns the cameras? Without putting that statement into context it is incredibly irrational and only serves to further victimize the victim.

    But according to his story, it wasn't random. By his own account he has linked the alleged assault to the threarening letter he previously received. The letter had a drawing of a hanging and he claims a noose was placed around his neck. So not random, but connected.

    For his story to be true, his "assailants" would have had to wait near his building for hours in the frigid cold with string and bleach on the OFF CHANCE that he would decide to WALK to Subway at 2am for a sandwich (because we all know celebs NEVER order in right?)

    They would also have to SOMEHOW manage to follow him WITHOUT getting caught on the SAME VIDEO CAMERAS (hundreds of them) that captured Jussie.

    THEN, we have to believe he WALKED back to his apartment with the noose still around his neck, and with CRACKED RIBS, yet REFUSED an ambulance and DROVE HIMSELF TO THE HOSPITAL.

    I repeat -- thoroughly implausible in every respect..

    laziness is no excuse for ignorance. from cnn;

    Chicago Police Department Spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said police“continue to seek any available evidence/video to identify possibleoffenders in [the Jussie Smollett] case.”

    He asked the public to report any tips to police.

    “Thus far we have not found anything to be able put out a description,” Guglielmi tweeted from a verified account.

    from the daily beast;

    A Chicago Police spokesperson told The Daily Beast that the attackers' genders were unknown (TMZ reported it was two men), and that their faces and hands had been covered.

  • Faux Gibbler

  • TRUTHbeabsolute

    People may not know this.....but your local news as well as many of your national news sites are always doing stories showing the intrusion of these types of government camera systems. These systems can and many times do monitor 24/7 coverage and 100% of many cities. This isn't just happening in this country this is happening all around the world and will continue. The ultimate goal is to change the way law enforcement responds to crimes. I mean think about it....you don't think all of those protest about the killing of young black men and women are not without repercussions do you? There is always an agenda around everything and most of the times it's not the obvious one either.

  • U gon learn today

    First of all, if it comes out that this was an engineered political or publicity stunt he is done b/c the public will never let him get away it...he will be shamed out of the spotlight and nobody, not even those who have defended him will defend him committing fraud. Also don’t know why you had to bring all of this other irrelevant mishagosh about Christine Ford or sexual assault allegations into this but since you did, let’s not forget the fact that she talked about her experiences with Kavanugh in therapy sessions years before Trump even ran for office and years before you ever knew who Kavanaugh was. She also took and passed a polygraph test. A has absolutely nothing to do with B.

    Yeah, with the CB thing they had a culprit they could base an opinion on. The details were quite different and the police also released or leaked quite a few of those details in that case. Based on those details many people could determine the culprit was full of doo-doo. Just as in this case the information released or leaked by police have caused many to form an opinion.

    2 white, MAGA-loving men ran up on him the ski mask way on some Biggie Smalls ish in EXTRA sub-zero weather, tied a noose around his neck, and sought to disinfect his skin with bleach. THEN, he's shown in a screenshot from a video chat with a paper cut on his face, and THEN he tells the police to turn off their body cams before he gave his statement (and my people, isn't the whole purpose of body cams is to PREVENT the police from any misconduct whenever they interact with civilians i.e. BLACK ones!?).

    He told them WHERE he walked and WHEN he supposedly walked there. Why should they talk about their coverage of the ENTIRE city, when, by his own account, he only walked a few blocks from his home to Subway, so surveilance footage from THAT AREA is what is relevant for THIS investigation .

    Uhhhhhh......yeah they do! Everyone knows that!

  • SemajBeyPhilly

    Seek attention for what tho? That doesn’t make sense.

  • grenadiadrian

    What does your question have to do with how many holes are being poked in Jussie's story about what transpired? You're just looking to argue for the sake of arguing. Miss me with your "gotcha" question.

  • whodatthere

    You mean Grindr..LOL! There are so many holes in this story, I hope he is telling the truth because his acting career will be no more!

  • Chicagowise

    Predators never take a vacation, but in that weather, Jussie's attackers would have to be super predators. I would like to know what Jussie was wearing, because if he was wearing a hat or hooded jacket, how did his attackers recognize him?

  • Renee26

    Sad

  • SeehereSeehere

    Jesus Mary and Joseph just read the top of the post

  • SeehereSeehere

    Exactly. This man is a tv star. I hardly think he needs to go about seeking attention.

  • SeehereSeehere

    So you aren’t gonna answer my question. Got it!

  • Renee26

    Could be 2 things: he was lured there by them under false pretence or they were ready to randomly attack anybody and once in his face they recognized him thus them saying ...you're that Empire fagg*t nigg*r as he reported.

  • SeehereSeehere

    The dude was rightfully arrested. The police officer however did not have a right to expose him to cruel and unusual punishment. That is the purpose of the courts. It is for a jury or judge to decide punishment not that police officer. The police are there to simply enforce the law not arrange for punishment.

  • SemajBeyPhilly

    That’s what I’m saying. No matter the situation him being attacked shouldn’t have happen.

  • Passion

    Did the camera’s show him in subway buying a sub, did the police find a evidence of a subway sandwich when they found the rope?!

  • Renee26

    At all

  • SemajBeyPhilly

    That part. My only issue (besides the bleach) is if u were getting death threats sent to your job & felt uneasy. Why the hell are u walking somewhere at 2am with no security?

    I thought drugs but I didn’t want to get crucified. He might’ve had a relapse. With money and resources why would you walk to a subway in that type of weather. Makes no sense to me

    Exactly... Police abuse of power and brutality is nothing new. It's in all urban movies and many jokes are and have been made about it. It's as if it's normal and expected.

    I've seen video of several IMPD cops beat a man down Rodney King style in the hood and nothing was done.

  • Chicagowise

    That's what I want to know. The alleged assault occurred AFTER he bought food. If he bought something to eat, did he buy one sandwich or two?! ?

  • kitttykatlady

    Or a 50 shades of grey gone wrong

  • Chicagowise

    Or... he used his real photo on a hookup app. Years ago, I was spending the summer in another state. I logged in to a dating/hookup app and someone sent me a notice that he opened his private pics. I was shocked, because it was a photo of a well known news anchor from Chicago! I guess he didn't think someone in California would recognize him.

  • NeverSurprised

    But there's video of HIM, on the street, ALONE. If someone assaulted him, on the street, in this same location, why wouldn't we expect there be footage of it?

    ALL people are capable of lying, even black people.

  • Passion

    You would think people would stop making up these stories and lies because with SM eventually the truth will come out! Plus, in most cases SM and the internet trolls will turn against them and drag them over hot burning coals!

    The story makes no sense

  • Jussjess25

    Oh ok

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    You do not have any facts. Therefore do not say he is lying.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    You made my point.

  • Jussjess25

    Thank you! And what subway sandwich shop you know open at 2am?? Dam shame what people will do for attention

    It was so quick and over the top. If the story is fake people are going to be a) pissed and b) look real stupid

    ‘Empire’ Star Jussie Smollett Told Cops to Turn Off Body Cams Before Giving Statement

    That one?

  • CPA

    What kind of subway sandwich ???

  • CPA

    He was either meeting a hook up partner, or buying drugs. IMO

  • CPA

    He put himself in a bad situation then changed the facts so the truth won’t come out. Maybe?

  • NeverSurprised

    Imagine if the over 530 people murdered last year in Chicago, ranging in age from 1 to 93, could get black celebs to care as much about their deaths as they do about the tiny scratch on Jussie's face.

    By the way, 318 of those murdered were black males between ages 16 and 41.

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/chicago.suntimes.com/news/chicago-murder-total-2018-homicides-police-department/amp/

    But as always, black people only get "outraged" when the white liberal media tells them to.

  • wigmon68

    I've personally seen cops kick the crap out of a white guy too. I am not sure what the point is.

  • ?jessica?

    The more I read about this, the more I give it the side-eye. Who walks anywhere at alone at 2 a.m. my second question is, out in temperatures like that shouldn't you have a hat and a scarf on to protect your face and head? How could anyone even make out who he was? Last question, in those temperatures no one is usually walking the streets. IJS

  • Pooh

    Everything in my spirit is telling me this is bogus. NOBODY checking for him but Lee Daniels ... YEP I SAID THAT

    What is even more disgusting is all of these so-called "celebrities" are sending well wishes SMFH

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    This is a PR Stunt to get ticket sales! I don't wish anyone harm, but I don't know ANY BLACK MAN that would ask the Police to turn their body cams OFF while dealing with them! Especially if you already felt you'd been the victim of a supposed hate crime
    Am I wrong?!

  • Renee26

    Yeah, celebs use dating apps, some have admitted it. I wouldn't doubt that was the case. It would possibly make the person be more down for the one night stand knowing they'd bed a celebrity

  • NewNew

    Lying about an attack like this would be so damaging to Jussie's career. Why would he make this up and be so public about it, especially in this day and age when there are cameras everywhere and allegations of this sort couldbe easily disproved? I am hopeful that he's telling the truth but am reserving judgement until presented with more information.

  • Parent

    Yes Grindr. Sorry not hip to these dating apps.

  • VernadineTheQueen?

    I agree...these celebrities are bogus right along with him.

  • Parent

    Why do people think that posting a past picture of you and said person makes you more sympathetic. Give me a break. I swear I hate this ish out of social media.

  • Li-Wright

    Ratings are up, the drama is the #1 drama on TV. They don't need PR. It's the last season coming up. But like I said last season, it's too much to show two men in bed, kissing, and going the full 9 yards with sex, and getting married. That's for cable.

  • Li-Wright

    @Faux, right. Chicago almost has as many cams are NYC. They are catching more criminals with these surveil cams. Something doesn't click about this story.

  • wigmon68

    I think thats a fair point. If he were making this up, what does he have to gain? I think we've seen that he has already gotten a bunch of sympathy and I can see getting a leg up in future gigs out of sympathy. Is that enough to make it worth the risk of losing what he currently has? for me, definitely not, but I can't say its unfathomable. I am not sure how easy it is to disprove his story. lack of video evidence isn't proof, unless they have video of him every step of the way.

    But I agree wholeheartedly with your last statement. let the facts come out before passing judgment either way.

    Police Concerned Jussie Smollet's Lying About Beating Story!!
    LYNDON ABIOYE4 HOURS AGO

  • NewNew

    If this is a stunt of some sort his career is over and he would deserve the ridicule. I'm just not prepared to discount his story just yet. Looking forward to getting the full story soon.

  • Dun Dilly

    AND..I just read that he TURNED DOWN added security due to it might affect his "private life"...I say "too late trick boy" ..you tagged us ALL in your private life of bitchassery w that bogus claim!!

  • wigmon68

    The only caveat I will add to your statement is "if it can be proven it was a stunt", then his career would probably suffer greatly. Proving the hoax is difficult if there is no physical evidence one way or the other. It would take someone to come out and contradict his statements and even in that case, its one persons word against another. Probably not enough to harm his career.

    The police are pretty good and finding out the truth and in todays day and age, there is bound to be footage of something captured.

  • NewNew

    We are in agreement Wigmon. Sadly, these days "if it's not on camera it didn't happen" even though we all know that's not true.

  • MsSapphire9800

    I am not saying he is lying...but when did criminals start carrying bottles of bleach and clotheslines instead of weapons in Chicago....and if you are visiting Chicago who goes out alone at 2 am...I need more information...there are cameras everywhere.

  • NeverSurprised

    / / / This!

  • NeverSurprised

    Well, the police now have footage of him going to Subway, AND returning to his apt building. All they have to do is zoomin on the return footage. If he was attacked BEFORE coming back home, there will be some evidence of that -- was she staggering, was he holding his broken ribcage, can we see the string/ noose around his neck, can we see evidence of any facialblood/ lacerations?

    If the answer is NO to all of those questions, it means any assault likely occurred AFTER he got.back to his homese, which means it was by someone IN HIS APARTMENT.

  • free

    He was treated and released, but doesn't seem like the story was accurate with how he's saying it happened. Could be something he's ashamed of.

  • Sean

    Why does it have to be a lover or an escort though?

  • Sean

    From someone that lives in Chicago about a mile from where this reportedly happened - when we walk inside, we don't usually stay bundled up. It gets warm quickly. Someone could have been in Subway and seen him. They could have been outside and seen outside. Who knows? And people in Chicago do actually walk around in winter. Otherwise, we'd all be inside for months at a time.

    I'm sure your right. I live down south. When it gets cold here no ones out lol

  • Taj

    Right. Who doesn't Postmates or ubereats if it's that serious. It ain't like he can't afford it

  • Andrea Williams

    No, because of how he carries himself in interviews. Why would who he plays on t.v. factor into my comment? His character is fictional.

  • Patricia

    i assume its a lover or escort bc of his shame behind it. i believe he got his behind whooped. if he was attacked by some random intruder in his home, why not report it as that to police? why make up a story of an assault taking place in another location with strangers?
    maybe its all made up. maybe this is a publicity stunt, or hes trying to get out of some contractual work obligation. we dont know yet.

    Thank you! It's more every day people then rich - famous folks. By numbers alone every day people are doing sick crap to people on a way larger scale. I don't know why this small percentage of people are the only ones with deviant behavior. Some of these people were sick before they ever got into the business of entertainment. They're next door neighbors are probably doing something sick right now. Oh but only rich famous people do that. My bag...

  • Anji

    Sad to say. As an activist I have witnessed all races including Blacks (talking loud but saying and doing nada) becoming immune to the tragedy of our young people destroying themselves and innocents. Celebrities do not OWE the race anymore than average individuals. At the end of the day, just make sure you care, stay active in the fight. We used to say "each one reach one". My foundations have reached hundreds. I am one average person. Imagine if we ALL cared enough to put the work in. My late bf, Lou Wilson of Mamdrill had lyrics that preached "wit yo big mouth talkin but it's not what you say, it's what you do...huh"? Blessings to the people.

    "Despite his minor injuries, Smollett is scheduled to perform in concert at The Troubadour in West Hollywood on Saturday, the concert promoter confirmed.

    "We're going on with the show as far as we know, until we hear anything different," said Paul Kacik, a booker for Sean Healy Presents, when reached by the L.A. Times early Tuesday afternoon.

    The Times reports that Smollett plugged the concert on social media on Monday, hours before the alleged attack.

    As of Tuesday afternoon, tickets to the concert (starting at $20) were still available, according to The Times."

    Motive discovered.

    And when did Redhats run around stalking Chicago in the wee hours of the morning? Also, why didn't he call the police when it happened, but went to his publicist first? And why was he still wearing the rope an hour later?

    And oh yeah, if this was a gang of wandering racist homophobes, how the hell would they know him on sight FROM THE SHOW? Are they all huge Empire fans? Would they pick him out on the street in cold weather gear?

    Interviews are not the place that shows you a person’s character. A person’s actions and actually knowing them is the only way to determine someone’s character.

    Just because a person has been trained well in answering questions does not mean you can know them or their character.
