Jussie Smollet

Jussie Smollet was released from a Chicago hospital after he was attacked by two men wearing ski masks around 2 a.m. Tuesday. The suspects reportedly doused Smollett with an unknown substance and tied a noose around his neck during the racially-charged, homophobic attack.

In a developing story first reported by ThatGrapeJuice.net, the 'Empire' star, who is residing in Chicago while filming the TV series, was a victim of a homophobic and racially charged attack.

The 36-year-old singer/actor transported himself to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago. He was later released in good condition, according to The Blast.

A friend called 911 to report Smollett was attacked by two men as he left his apartment.

The two suspects who attacked Smollett have not yet been apprehended, and as of now the battery is being investigated as a possible hate crime, according to The Blast.

Smollett began his career as a child actor appearing in TV commercials before branching out to films, including The Mighty Ducks (1992) and Rob Reiner's North (1994).

His star turn came when he was cast as Jamal Lyon, the openly homosexual son of a music dynasty patriarch in the scripted TV series Empire.

Smollett came out as homosexual during a nationally televised interview with Ellen DeGeneres in March 2015.

Smollett told Ellen he had some romantic interest in girls as a boy. He defended a scene in Empire in which he was involved in a sexual tryst with a woman and fathered a child with her.

Smollett explained that he and director Lee Daniels, who is also openly homosexual, created the scene to start a conversation about sexual fluidity in the homosexual community.

Daniels said, "Jussie and I both share the same feeling that, yes, even though we are gay, we're sexual human beings. And we do occasionally want to sleep with a woman."

As an adult actor, Smollett also appeared in Ridley Scott's science fiction film Alien: Covenant and as Langston Hughes in the biopic Marshall.

    Not surprised, folks are worked up about every little thing. I expect more of these. Wouldn't be at all surprised if the suspects are part of the AA community.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Was is a sexual or racial hate crime..or both? The noose around the neck thinks more racial than sexual..

  • ClaireHuxtable

    I hope he's ok.

    "Smollett explained that he and director Lee Daniels, who is also openly homosexual, created the scene to start a conversation about sexual fluidity in the homosexual community"

    Sure it's not racially motivated?

    Also I don't believe for one second Lee has or ever had plans on sexual relations with women EVER. I don't even believe he gets aroused looking at a woman.

  • HotInCleveland

    Hope he makes a full recovery and they crach the cowards that attacked him. Also, This “Empire” show sounds very messy...

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    And it causes men to bring home HIV and other STDs to their wives too, messing with men on the low. My former boss was gay and once told me there's a bunch of married men in his social circle who have wives and kids, but mess around with dudes on the side...and their wives have no idea whatsoever.

  • jwoo250

    If he was walking at 2am in the morning in Chi-town. I wonder if it was a setup and he went to meet someone.

  • Trace da Ace

    as I read your comment, my heart began to hurt. I'm so sorry that happened to you and my prayers and love goes out to you and all others who have experience such hate. I also pray that this never happens again to anybody, as situations like this breaks my heart. It's a damn shame that folks get attacked for being themselves and just trying to live their best life. xoxo

    He has two fully grown ADOPTED children who were "born to his brother and his girlfriend and adopted by Daniels and his then partner, casting director Billy Hopkins, when they were three days old."

    He can preach about sexual "fluidity" all he wants, but even Stevie Wonder can see Lee has never been interested in any vajayjay.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    I have those questions as well

  • T Willis

    They hung a noose around his neck, but the header says this was a homophobic attack? It seems more racially motivated than sexual ?

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Sad sad, but I don't doubt it. Many people see s3x as a game, not an intimate experience with a partner you love. So putting someone else at physical & emotional risk means nothing to them.

  • T Willis

    Smdh that’s horrible.

  • T Willis

    I just said the same thing.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    We hope you find Peace soon.

  • Rahab

    I hate to admit, Chicago is wild. I drive; not working because I wasn't taking the bus today and worked from home yesterday. I will log on and do some work later; but technically off.

    They are robbing folks in good areas for their Canada Goose coats. I have a fur and haven't worn it in years and this is fur weather.

    Smash and grabs; missing women and kids; murdered individuals in general. A 21 year old mother should not be shot multiple times in the middle of the winter in an alley. Pregnant postal worker still missing. Folks kidnapping and robbing their landlord and stuffing body in sewers. Can't even try to provide housing for some of these caged birds.

    But I digress, love my city but trust nobody you don't know and keep it moving. As a matter of fact, I will no longer scare tourists and offer directions. Google maps work but those exposed cell phones laying gently in their palms are screaming snatch me and run.

    I had to tell a little girl headed to Lallapalooza to put her purse around her neck. Then the older lady in the group, whose bag was around her body agreed. I just told them to have fun and be safe. Fools were posted up yelling loud on Michigan Ave like it was the courtyard at Robert Taylor. Huh!

  • T Willis

    I think it’s racial not homophobic. We won’t really know if it was motivated based on homophobia until the f*ckers are found - or unless Jussie says otherwise.

  • SeehereSeehere

    Man I’m so proud! First black woman Surgeon General in California https://www.ebony.com/news/black-woman-appointed-californias-first-ever-surgeon-general/ damn that feels good!

  • Li-Wright

    Look....I don't think he's "all that" as an actor or singer, but damn....and I live in Chicago, this makes us look really really bad. We can't escape that gangster image.
    But the question is -- how did they know where he lives? And Chicago is one of the biggest "gay" cities, people are tolerant, like Atlanta, so I'm thinking it must more than that.

  • T Willis

    They left a noose around his neck. How many black folks do you know would do that? The noose is symbolic to another time in this country. A time that no black folks would joke or insinuate about ... especially after committing a crime against another black person. This was racially motivated. And I wholeheartedly believe the f*ckers are yt. Only yt ppl like doing sh*t like leaving nooses on black ppl or their property. It’s a scare tactic. That’s why they ain’t completely kill him or hang him with the noose.

    This attack has nothing to do with him a homosexual. It was a racist attack.

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    I really dislike the human race sometimes

  • NeverSurprised

    There's obviously more to this story.

  • Ghost

    I think it was more about jealousy and race! Race is a big issue in Chicago!

  • Trace da Ace

    TMZ is saying that he was walking to Subway to get some food after arriving in Chi town last monday night....and the 2 men poured bleach on him and all....smdh.....this is so bad....just bad....

  • Blak

    The things people will say to get attention and cover up lovers quarrels. How do people know he is gay unless he is wearing an "I am gay" tee shirt and assless chaps.

  • T Willis

    They tied a noose around his neck and poured bleach on him. I’m thinking the “sexual” part was a 2ndary in nature ?

  • Phillybruh

    Unless him and his man got into outside of a subway then this wasn't a lovers quarrel

  • Blak

    cool...still not a homophobic attack

  • Phillybruh

    It wasn't a subway in the airport. It was a subway in the area he was staying at.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    ??@ assless chaps!

  • jwoo250

    Bleach omfg. I'm going to read more.

    We can be not nice or empathetic. Every person has a hard battle, but we don't see that.

    Thats why I stopped watching it! That agenda they were pushing was WAY TOO aggressive ???

  • Dun Dilly

    I'm gonna hold my words until we get more info. This sounds like one of those inside beefs.

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    I'm telling you! Like why is another person so pressed about who this man is loving. He's not loving you so keep opinions to yourself and keep it moving if you don't like it.

  • Phillybruh

    Nothing would surprise me, when it comes to the blacks and homosexuals. However the individuals in this case were described as white.

    Lol

  • Blue

    Can we get a feel-good post. This too dark. Perhaps the 4 year old drummer that is all over social media. Let me stop. I don't ever get credit for my ideas around here. lol

  • T Willis

    All the black on black crime committed in Chicago, and none of them gangsters realized that a racially motivated hate crime was being committed against one of our own? I mean, if we’re going to carry the statistic of “most violent crimes” offenders, then the least we could do is train them enough to be *our* attack dogs against these racist yt f*ckers

  • WutizstillHERE!

    indeed. Thats what I was thinking unless he was in a well known area , someone that knew him via TV, or somewhere conducting a little PDA there is nothing that says homophobic.

  • T Willis

    Yeah I need to laugh right now... this sh*t is becoming too dreary and depressing.

  • VernadineTheQueen?

    HOLD MY PEACE FOR NOW UNTIL MORE INFO IS RELEASED BECAUSE WE KNOW THE AGENDA COULD BE AT WORK.

  • Phillybruh

    If the said homophobic slurs while calling him an N-word at the same time its both.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    We can all have our ideas, but I see No point in putting your hands on people. Is a beating supposed to make a grown man heteros3xual?
    The logic is flawed.

  • justlooking

    Hoping for quick recovery. People are getting more sick in head every day.

    Sorry to hear that

    I've heard nothing on the news or radio about this? Has this story been fact checked. It would have been all over my timeline this morning if it was true.
    Let me check again.

  • EMILY POST

    Prayers up for him...
    The noose for Homosexual or because he was black? How did they determine its a Homophobic crime ? They come out with no real information but he was attacked but yet its a homophobic crime thats weird.

  • Renee26

    WOW

  • Elevated Soul

    There is MORE to this story.....

    A lot of women ignore warning signs.... They indulge in the back door play and ignore that their man draws his eyebrows on, shaves his whole body and prefers to spend his free time with hard legs...

    Nothing, absolutely nothing on our local news in Chicago.

    Glad he's ok

    Crazy world. Hope they catch these scumbags. Glad he is ok. SMH!

    Why are people so homophobic??? If the person isn’t bothering you leave alone. Sometimes I feel people who are a homo is secretly into it themselves. Live and let live.

  • Li-Wright

    Our local news is always "breaking news" and have an entertainment segment. Nothing about this.

  • Coy little wink

    Local news is biased hun they pick and choose what is aired

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Yes it’s awful some people look at gay and pedophiles I. The same light that’s why this stuff happens

  • Coy little wink

    Because they yelled homophobic slurs

  • EMILY POST

    Share the link....

  • Coy little wink
  • Mielle Downey

    It seems these special interest groups are so hell bent on furthering their agenda it is sickening. If they yelled out his name they knew who he was. They planned this and were wearing ski masks and waiting for him so it was premeditated. Until the criminals come froward and actually say why they attacked him it is only speculation at this point. But what is evident is that he was a black man and a visible minority and they threatened him with a noose so homophobic is ruled out. This attack was because of race. The noose was used by Southern democrat KKK militia members to intimidate blacks during the civil rights era. Walking while black and famous was why he was attacked. It was a liberal KKK Democrat who did this. Shame on them. The moral to this is "Never trust a Liberal".

  • Pitty Patty

    So this was racist and homophobic. Looks like they been targeting him Sending some messages to the studio last week calling him a black fa%^t. Whats wrong with folks?

  • Pitty Patty

    If they aired this, its gonna make the city look really really bad. They dont want to expose how racist Chicago really is. I've been trying to tell people that since I moved here 15 years ago

  • Whiplash(lacejagger)

    The attackers had on white ski mask, did he see their hands? How’d he know they were white? Subway is open at 2am? It’s Chicago, and you’re trying to walk and get food at the time of night? Why not call Uber eats or room service? ABC news is reporting that Chicago is experiencing tempatures mirroring Antarctica... I have so many questions. I’m glad he’s ok, but something doesn’t sound right...

  • Mielle Downey

    Yes there is, the KKK section of the Democrat party is rearing it's ugly head again.

  • Pitty Patty

    Because I'm assuming this happened downtown in a "nice" neighborhood. This looks like a planned attack. Those men been watching him.

  • Ladii Jaye

    I don't understand the rage of homophobic people...I could care less what grown people do in THEIR bed. Glad to hear he's okay.

  • Mielle Downey

    Or he was cruising for male prostitutes? And got mugged.

  • Renee26

    Ski masks leave openings around the eyes... Doesn't matter if he was out to buy food or a booty call, doesn't warrant an attack

  • Trace da Ace

    Sandra...please get us outta here!!! New post!!!

  • Coy little wink

    Its like this everywhere

  • Pitty Patty

    Exactly! Victim blaming is not cool.

  • Mielle Downey

    This happened at 2 am ..hhmm I wonder what neighborhood this was and if he was not looking for a food Sub but one from a man's neither regions? Cruising for male prostitutes? OK, I will wait until the full story comes out because someone is not telling the whole truth.

  • Whiplash(lacejagger)

    I don’t recall saying an attack was warranted.

  • SpillyNillie

    Ain't nothing open at 2AM but Legs! I'm glad he's okay tho!

  • Whiplash(lacejagger)

    Same questions the police ask. Free country and I was not “victim shaming”

  • Coy little wink

    Lololol

  • Renee26

    The updated report implies he already had his fun with his friend and was going for a sandwich

  • Renee26

    Sick mf have no lives of their own apparently

  • Logan Roberts

    Glad he's ok. Next post please.

  • OvertheMississippi

    Have you heard about the dancing doll drama with Diana and Rittney? ???

  • Mielle Downey

    So the friend set him up?

  • Renee26

    You didn't but because your additional questions all related to the circumstances that had him out there to be attacked (like many other commentors) I concluded on that note. All irrelevant to the big picture...a man was attacked

  • KLo

    Why are Trump supporters doing this. so, so sad

  • Renee26

    didn't

  • Li-Wright

    We don't know if it was trump supporters. Anybody can say MAGA.

  • Pebbles

    Nope!

    I heard little rumblings after the last episode aired about the girls mother taking her to a paid event without informing Diana ( allegedly) and the other captain was sick

  • Mielle Downey

    Liberals please get your lie right because my deplorable mind is tried of the bull.First off it seems this is just a ploy to hide the fact that he was looking for a male prostitute or his male friend set him up. Liberals are truly sick. So you are insinuating it was a trump supporter to cover up the fact that if it was racially motivated it would have been perpetrated by a KKK liberal democrat? Or did they retire because the party switch?

  • PRECIOUS

    Wow. So sorry. Demonic attacks are at an all-time high on the powerful and righteous. Don’t block it. Hold your head. You have serious favor.

  • PRECIOUS

    Hmmmmm

  • Whiplash(lacejagger)

    “Allegedly” there’s more to this story. This a blog everyone is entitled to an opinion. Nothing has been fact checked.. my questions stand. Thanks.

  • NeverSurprised

    Questions are not "irrelevant" if you want to CATCH the perpetrators. Did he know them? Where was he going? How long had be been outside the building before the attack? Did he interact with anyone before the attack? Did they approach him from behind? Were they already wearing masks? Did they speak? Could he identify their voices? What happened AFTER they doused him? What happened AFTER they pulled out the noose? What happened to the noose? Did they have it in their hands when he or they fled? Who ran away, him or the attackers? All legitimate questions in determining whether an attack by UNKNOWN assailants occurred, OR whether this grew out of a previous encounter with someone.

  • NeverSurprised

    And your questions are completely valid.

  • Pitty Patty

    What happened?

  • TriniHarlem

    New post my gosh

  • NeverSurprised

    Sandra, why haven't you mentioned the cut and paste notes sent to him before the attack? Obviously this is someone who knew him.

  • ?jessica?

    Daniels said, "Jussie and I both share the same feeling that, yes, even though we are gay, we're sexual human beings. And we do occasionally want to sleep with a woman." I don't like this, maybe it's just me. I think that's ok in the beginning but once you find out who you are you shouldn't go back and forth like that. Be one way or the other. You can't straddle the fence. It confuses people. Sorry of I hurt anyone's feelings, that's just the way I feel

  • KcoolMuziq

    He had just came in from a flight from NY. STOP making this tragic incident about man sex.

  • Rayscoty

    So...He was meeting somebody off Jackd and Chicago trade attacked him.. Ok

  • Soda

    Thank you for finally admitting your mind is deplorable. It explains a lot.

  • Mielle Downey

    Prostitution is illegal in the vast majority of the United States as a result of state laws rather than federal laws.What I am speculating is that it might be a PR cover up to protect him and could involve a male prostitute. Is prostitution legal in Chicago?

  • Guest

    Next post please!

  • KcoolMuziq

    ?

    Please STOP IT! It’s not about prostitution it is a HATE CRIME!

  • Mielle Downey

    The point is stop giving the devil a ride. Prostitution is not legal so when you go looking for you deserve what you get. Now if he wasn't then that is a different story. But this is all speculation.

  • Blue

    uh oh

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Why?

    You've accepted the lie from society that sexuality is fixed while most people fall somewhere on the spectrum.

    Although I have never been with a woman I do find some of them attractive they just don't 'excite' and I have thought about how much easier my life would be if I were straight.

  • Mielle Downey

    Dealing with Liberal who have no center or moral compass, yes you can be draining.

  • Soda

    Who's forcing you to?

  • Mielle Downey

    You keep stalking me you unstable creature.

  • Rayscoty

    Sound like a scene from Empire.... Jamal was shot by the transwoman and addicted to pain pills.. He will be ok..

  • Coy little wink
  • Michelle

    Did lee Daniels hire some goons to do this in order to get his name mentioned in articles in conjunction with Jessie? Empire finna come back or what? Lemme hit google?

  • the guest

    Or they like the vain, selfish, self absorbed POWER of seducing men and women.

  • Mielle Downey

    His PR is cleaning this up as we speak.

  • Soda

    No need to stalk, everyone knows who the neighborhood nutcase is.

  • HotInCleveland

    Interesting perspective. I say let folks screw who they may as long as they are completely honest with their partners about their sexual preferences.

  • MrsSpice1

    Where was his bodyguards? Friends? Entourage?? Why do these celebrities think they can live “normal” lives...sorry when u become famous and wordly known you have to be cautious 24/7...thats what u signed up for ?! Smh now i cant believe these two white scorned lovers ? *ahem* in ski mask were able to do all of that as if they were in some dark alley and not one two or multiple ppl didnt see or attempt to stop or catch his scorned luvers..sad!

  • ?jessica?

    I agree but that's just he thing, will they? It happens to a friend of mine and it crushed her When she found out that her boyfriend of many years was sleeping with men. I can't imagine how much that hurt her.

  • MsChocolate

    Yes...he is. I work in an office with 50% ghey men. They also look good, well groomed, smell good and all that. Put together just right. And they are helpful and considerate.

  • Coy little wink

    Chile...the wig the shoe the purse

  • Trace da Ace

    lmao he did a FULL tuck n roll!!!

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Yep, Everything you said!!!!

  • Elevated Soul

    Okay!!!!....This was no hate crime. Fake News just say that because he's gay. Many gay men are very promiscuous and I will bet this is a by-product of that.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!! Stop it!!!!!!!!!

  • Elevated Soul

    Say that!!!! You can't tell the minions in that party that the Democrats started the KKK though.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    AND Waffle House???

  • Rayscoty

    Wait.... Its -40 degrees in Chicago and Smollett just happen to come across to hate crime attackers with ski mask .. Plus they took the time to drug him..

    This has to be a round table reading script that leaked to the public

  • Mielle Downey

    This is PR 101 The truth is Stranger that fiction. If it comes out that allegedly he was cruising for prostitutes this will kill his career. And if allegedly it was under age boys. Wow nelly!!! He will be voted of the Island. Optics is everything so they are keeping it simple ad throwing some social justice to make it relatable to garner sympathy. Hollywood is sic.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Right! Who carries around bleach with them?

  • Coy little wink

    But he transported himself to the hospital so if he had something to cover up why even go?

    Make some sense sir....

  • HotInCleveland

    That’s True. This day in age you can’t be too careful.

  • Prince Zuko

    Yeah this right here gives gays a bad name either ur gay or not according to most gay men they claim that their sexually is not a choice however this dude just said that he wants to sleep with women every once in a while so dose that mean this particular gay man can bounce in between sexually? Are gays driven by sex alone ? This dude set the gay community back a for decades.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    ?? a bussy appointment gone wrong you say?

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    Chile it looked like a kindergarten drew those pics ? I was looking like is this a joke?

  • ?jessica?

    Right

  • Rayscoty

    Maybe he was walking around looking for RKELLY studio..

  • Nina Ross

    So they didn’t rob him?

  • Nina Ross

    Or a publicity stunt

  • TMW

    The story I read about this on the Grio is totally different than what Sandra is reporting. Grio says Jussie has been targeted and received hate mail, and that attackers said “This is MAGA country.”

    https://thegrio.com/2019/01/29/report-empire-star-jussie-smollett-hospitalized-after-maga-supporters-beat-him-and-put-noose-around-his-neck-arent-you-that-fot-empire-ngger/

  • Nina Ross

    He got his ass beat

  • Coy little wink

    But wouldn't he go home quietly to lick his wounds in private if he was outchere cruising for bussy?

  • Mielle Downey

    True.

  • ?jessica?

    I just think is all so confusing. For example guys with a full face of make-up (lashes and all) with a gotee or a man in a suit with heels and a purse on his shoulder. It's not accepting a lie, it what I see in today's world. Don't get me wrong I say live and let live. It's just my personal opinion. I'm not trying to change how anyone's living. I just don't understand that mindset. Maybe you could help me understand it a little better.

  • BingBangBoom

    Wait one moment ain't they adopted? Plus I recall him saying his dad use to try and "beat the Gay" out of him as a child. Come on Sandra you know the deal.

  • Mielle Downey

    Really, Chicago is MAGA Country?hmm with a democratic mayor? and more black on black crime than carter got pills? I don't know of Any Demoractic strong hold that are MAGA? Is New York MAGA country? I repeat, PR is working overtime because the teen prostitutes who he was allegedly attacked by are not coming forward to incriminate themselves. He better go see Rkelly.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I don't understand guys who have beards and make up either. I just look away and keep it moving.

  • BingBangBoom

    Oooouuuu yall really saying that he did stunts and shows for publicity?
    He will supply the receipts soon enough for all yall..

  • Mielle Downey

    Exactly, because they knew him.

  • SpiceGirl

    Ummm this tea doesn't sound right.......waiting on more info

  • ?jessica?

    ???

  • Tlowe89

    Men can be bisexual too

  • TransMichelle
  • Rainbowbelow

    This is sad and disgusting, no one deserves to be attacked like this....

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    Wait he said he was drugged too?

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    So they can get rid of and evidence dna or otherwise DUUUHHHH! ?

  • Ghost

    Trust me Chicago is NOT MAGA country! Coward bastards!

  • Mike Jones

    Yeah something seems a little off about this story. Gonna wait and reserve judgment.

  • Mielle Downey

    Why are rich, black celebrities creeping around Chigago at 2am when they have skip the dishes and uber eats in minus 40 below weather? Someone ain't telling the truth

  • Karen Brady

    Allegedly investigators are saying there are three parts to this story that do not fit. Stay tuned.

  • Mielle Downey

    Me neither, Chicago MAGA country lmao. There are more homeboys in Chicago than good old boys.The fact that Chicago is a Dem stronghold and Hollywood in in bed with liberal politics make me think he will be dabbling in politics soon.

  • Karen Brady

    Whyohwhyohwhy did I have to click on this mess? BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  • rayne215

    like most big cities, chicago is still segregated. its lots of white people in that city and its not unbelievable that they can be maga. just not the southern confederates we normally see. they all over

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    I got into a fight in highschool also because I had a white girlfriend.

  • Mark mcharm

    He was coming home from a flight and was attacked the story is not being told right on this website he was getting messages for awhile.

  • Mark mcharm

    Go on his Instagram it will make sense why he was out at 2 in the morning.

  • BeUtFullSoul

    I’ll wait until the WHOLE “story” is revealed BEFORE I give my Opinion ?

  • Mark mcharm

    It's already out

  • rayne215

    can really tell how yall fell about gay men since everyone thinks he automatically had to be searching for prostitutes. smh. someone above even assumed he was looking for underaged boys. smh

  • Mielle Downey

    IS this why they all vote in Democratic Mayors and Governors consecutively. Fun Fact, KKK was the Militia arm of the KKK party so racist much?

  • Applebootay

    These details are different from news reports here in Chicago. It says he was entering a SUBWAY “Sources directly connected to Jussie tell TMZ, the actor arrived in
    Chicago from New York late Monday, and at around 2 AM he was hungry and
    went to a Subway. We’re told when he walked out, someone yelled,
    “Aren’t you that f***ot ‘Empire’ n*****?”

    There are some real blue eyed devils here.

  • Applebootay

    He was going to subway because he was hungry?

  • rayne215

    why are you talking KKK? nothing in my comment is racist

  • Mielle Downey

    I am sorry if you are gay and don't want to face the fact the straight and gay men cruise for prostitutes and 2am seems like that time of the night. Face the fact that they provide a service even though it is illegal. No one thought RKelly was into teenage gurls so this fact is not out of the equation when Hollywood performs a cover up.

  • Applebootay

    There are 2 Chicagos. One Black and one white. Can you guess which one isn't "MAGA country"?

  • NeverSurprised

    All of this is just a little too "Lifetime movie" for me. The ransome-style note with the added touch of the kindergarten drawings gave this whole thing a new level of disbelief. I think this was concocted by an assortment of jilted male lovers.

  • Itzgoingdown2

    Sandra, stop playing.... you’re to smart to believe this. 20 degrees, mask, bleach and a noose..... in Chicago? Were they following him at 2am? Sounds like he got caught up with some people he wasn’t suppose to be with doing some things he don’t want us to know about. He should have just said he got robbed and beat up. The claim of a racial and sexual orientation crime is going to expose whatever he was really doing and with whom he was trying to do it with.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Subway is open at 2 AM in Chicago?

  • Applebootay

    He was getting something to eat...at SUBWAY...please find other credible sources of real news before you start passing judgment

  • Applebootay

    The mayor we currently have is stepping down and we are in the midst of reelecting another one. Rahm isn't running again. You're not making sense. at least not based on facts. Alternative facts maybe.

  • Applebootay

    I live in Chicago. You sound like you get your news from sound bites....

  • Applebootay

    she don't know WTF she's talking about just blabbing.

  • bella28498 .

    Beating up gay people is so 1990’s. I don’t believe he was beat up because he is gay. He might have given someone a disease that just keep on giving.

  • Applebootay

    Sandra's version is far off. Try going to a real news source...because sources here (IN CHICAGO) are not saying anything about ski masks...they were white and racist and it was at a subway.

  • Applebootay

    Yes, but don't argue with folks. Sandra Rose is their only source of news.

  • Applebootay

    He was with a friend who called 911.

  • rayne215

    it sounds like you need to be in hollywood they way you embellish stories.

  • Applebootay

    YUP! A lot of them are 24 hours!

  • TMW

    In Michigan too

  • Coy little wink

    Lololol ?

  • Mielle Downey

    I I needed to hear embellishment I would watch CNN MSNBC or CBS They take the Truth and turn into fairy tales.

  • Karen Brady

    Oh my. That is a different story.

  • Applebootay

    I actually just found that out a few months ago myself. #factchecker

  • rockstar2142

    Sandra it’s one down here in forest park that’s 24hrs.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    We know one part. What are the other 2 parts to the story?

  • Prince Zuko

    But he's said he's an openly gay man

  • Rayscoty

    I like Sandra version of the breaking story... There is so much drama , lies and suspense..

  • ALLMINE?

    The average person isn't pegging this nigga as gay.. this is a lie

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Believe it or not bisexuals go both ways.

  • Karen Brady

    *chuckles*

  • rayne215

    Lmao. You are so cliche. Noone complained about the media until trump and you feeding into it.

  • Karen Brady

    Who knows. I just saw it on another site. A 'blind' site.

  • BingBangBoom

    Oh I do believe THAT. But not Lee.. That was all

  • TMW

    May not be, but there are apparently some Caucasian folk going out of their way to prove that MAGA is the new KKK

  • OvertheMississippi

    Rittney has several YT videos, and Diane responds to every accusation. Summary: Diana got rich and they got nothing!

  • dru and neil

    I don’t even care about why an adult is out at 2 am. I drive around in the middle of the night in my car all the time due to insomnia. But it seems a lot of people are fixated on “why he was out the house” from some of the comments I’ve read, folks are worried about the wrong damn thing.

  • BeUtFullSoul

    I'm waiting on the video footage

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Weird that it wouldn't be on there. Maybe they don't want to bring more bad press to the city.

  • dru and neil

    Exactly, and way too many folks are passing judgement as to why a grown man was out his house late at night, who gives a sh*t! Folks should be worried about what happened to this man, not why he wasn’t tucked in bed, he’s grown!

  • dru and neil

    This was so good..?

  • ChuckDHammer ?????’? ???? ????

    So white supremacists watch Empire?
    Now there's a surprise demographic.

  • Willette Capers

    Its one in Morrow right before Eagles Landing that's 24 hours.

  • Elevated Soul

    Someone is trying to turn this into an agenda.

  • Mielle Downey

    Skeletons in my closet ....

  • Mrs. S. O.

    This story sounds HIGHLY suspicious. We here in Chicago ain't buying it. You mean to tell me they passed over 50,000 other Black folks on their way downtown just to attack him specifically? What sense does that make? There's a whole area of Chicago full of gay men called "Boys Town" they could have found a victim.

    This sounds like Lee Daniels and his white liberal friends asked Jussie to do a favor. Pretend there's this huge MAGA issue (in liberal Chicago of all places) and display of "toxic masculinity".

    Also, what Subway in downtown Chicago is open at 2am? Why didn't he order Uber Eats, Door Dash, Grubhub, Postmates, etc.

    I also want to see Northwestern cameras showing him entering the ER. Were there bleach stains on his clothes or nah?

  • Mrs. S. O.

    The Chicago suburbs are most definitely MAGA but not so much the city.

  • Renee26

    They need to learn how to better negotiate their pay. Everyone should be getting paid especially the girls ... Moms should get less of course but still get a check. SMH

  • GuestSTAR

    LMAO!!

  • http://www.id820534.sexylfx.website Readytochokemothernatureout

    My heart sank when I read about this. So sorry it happened to him.

  • Mrs. S. O.

    Chicago is wild but downtown ain't that damn wild. That is an unusual occurrence downtown.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I am sitting here staring at the wall while rocking back and forth like Ms. Sofia from The Color Purple after she got hit in the head.

  • Reina1718

    I didnt wanna say that, but i agree... like 2am u that hungry ? & no one with u? Im not goin outside alone if im on primetime tv sorry..& they had masks to begin with so did they follow him? Did they know when he was leaving? & where did MAGA come from?

  • Reina1718

    & they already had masks on?

  • Reina1718

    If he was getting threats then he truly shouldnt have been alone...

  • Reina1718

    If i got threats like that no way would i be alone

  • Reina1718

    He has more money than me & i call uber eats

  • Truth Or Die

    Suspect story. Remember the recent Texas shooting story my people and lets see how this plays out before you let your triggered emotions take a hold of you...

  • Mark mcharm

    Nah of you look on his Instagram page he just got home from NYC and basically got his azz whipped this could happen to anyone that time of night.

  • THE Queen

    nasty arse leve daniels, sodom n gomorra

  • Kimberly King

    THIS !!! He looks like a straight black guy who’s into white women. So I feel like the media is looping this into a hate crime because of his sexuality and not his race. You’re black FIRST! I wish black gays would understand this. No one sees your sexuality when they first look at you. White gays don’t even mess with black gays like that unless it’s on some sexual sh*t. Anyway, hope ole dude is okay.

  • ALLMINE?

    He was out cruising at 2am looking for a dude.. ??

  • Hamper

    He's lying. This was a gay tinder date gone wrong and he's trying cover it up to save face.

  • Hamper

    And the Covington hoax story. More will come out, folks.

  • Hamper

    That's exactly what I thought to.

  • Hamper

    lmao.

  • Hamper

    He wasn't. It's a lie.

  • Hamper

    I know, right?

  • Hamper

    Ain't no racist white people watching Empire. lol

  • ALLMINE?

    Lol
