"MAGA Trash in Chicago attacked Jussie Smollett and broke his rib (swipe)"

https://finance.yahoo.com/news/empire-star-jussie-smollett-attacked-rope-put-around-neck-suspected-hate-crime-175325540.html

Chicago P.D. is investigating a brutal attack on Empire star Jussie Smollett. The 36-year-old actor and singer was jumped by two white men late Monday. It is being treated as a possible hate crime.

“Overnight, the Chicago Police Department received a report of a possible racially-charged assault and battery involving a cast member of the television show Empire,” police confirmed to Yahoo. “Given the severity of the allegations, we are taking this investigation very seriously and treating it as a possible hate crime. Detectives are currently working to gather video, identify potential witnesses and establish an investigative timeline. The victim is fully cooperating with investigators and we ask anyone with information about this incident to contact Area Central Detectives at 312-747-8382.”

If anyone has information and wishes to report it anonymously, they can do so here.

TMZ has disturbing details of the altercation. After arriving home in Chicago from New York, Smollett was hungry and went to a Subway around 2 A.M. As he was leaving, one of the men purportedly yelled, “Aren’t you that f***ot Empire n***er?”

The two white men were apparently wearing ski masks and attacked Smollett, who tried to fight back. They put a rope around his neck, poured bleach on him and as they left allegedly yelled, “This is MAGA country.” The Fox star was treated for a fractured rib at Northwestern Memorial and discharged Tuesday.

Chicago P.D. confirms to Yahoo the two unknown offenders approached Smollett “and gained his attention by yelling out racial and homophobic slurs towards him. The offenders began to batter the victim with their hands about the face and poured an unknown chemical substance on the victim.”

Police also confirm one of the offenders wrapped a rope around Smollett’s neck. The actor is now in “good condition.” Yahoo has not independently confirmed whether the MAGA quote was yelled.

It appears the attack might have been premeditated. According to photos obtained by the blog ThatGrapeJuice.Net, Smollett received a threatening note eight days ago. It was addressed to Fox Studios in Chicago with cut out letters spelling, “You will die black f**.”

Yahoo reached out to a representative for Smollett but did not immediately receive a response.

On Empire, the actor plays Jamal Lyon, the son of Lucious (Terrence Howard) and Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) who is gay. In an interview with Ellen DeGeneres in 2015, Smollett said that while he identifies as being gay, he prefers to keep his personal life private.

“It was really important to me to make sure that it got across that there is no closet,” Smollett explained. “But I have a home and that is my responsibility to protect that home.”

He continued, “So that’s why I choose not to talk about my personal life. But there is without a doubt, no closet that I’ve ever been in, and I just wanted to make that clear. But it was most important for me to make that clear to you on your show at this time in the world. And that’s where I’m at.”

Well-wishes are pouring in for the beloved entertainer. GLAAD reached out to both Fox and Smollett’s team offering support.

Andy Cohen called the attack “vile.”

Put a rope around his neck? For why? Dramatic effect?
Poured an unknown chemical on him? For why?
Zodiac killer note sent before hand.

"This is MAGA country"
“Aren’t you that f***ot Empire n***er?”
Who talks like that?


This sounds like a script to an episode I must have missed.

In response to Reply # 12


  

          

The language, the noose, the bleach, it was an Arctically cold Chicago night (2AM, no less).

Jussie has always seemed really intelligent and a like a good person, so I really "want" this to be as true as it's being initially reported because I don't want to believe that he would be a party to a hoax. That's why I'm choosing to go with the idea that whoever did this knew him, or they were sent by someone who knew him.

I don’t doubt that sadly in 2019 folks are being attacked for being black and/or gay but I guess it was the words used and as someone said who walks around with ski masks, ropes, and bleach at 2am?

i edited cuz i thought maybe i was being too skeptical/insensitive.

but the story just doesnt sound right imo. looks like others are feeling the same way.

skimasked magabots in the middle of chicago call you a n*gger f*ggot and beat you up then throw a noose around your neck and ran?

i would be happy to be wrong.

seeing everyone rallying to his defense...i would be even more happy to be wrong. i hope the story doesnt fall apart and it turns into another 'gotcha/ha ha' moment from the usual suspects.

35. "Lmao. This morning they said Jussie refused to have security"
In response to Reply # 32


          

after he received the threatening letter.

The show hired security for the whole cast after the initial threat.

I wouldn’t be surprised if it was “security” or someone linked to the security he refused. I can’t see how folks would wait around all night in frigid temps and a random subway run just so happened to work out on their favor.

The radio host was calling out street thugs and gangs in Chicago or not stepping up to protect dude but what thug is out in Antarctic wind chill type weather looking for justice?

shut up already, damn

White people don't watch Empire, well maybe the ones that like Rap music. But yeah, the average white guy wouldn't even know who Jussie is.

I'm guessing these were the PO-PO who lost money by not getting the 'security job'.

Alot of guys who moonlight as "security" are CHICAGO COPS.

MAGA country? No civilian would ever say that. Trump is really hated in Chicago. Even the city council tried to pass an ordinance to remove his name from Trump Tower.

The only Trump supporters in the city are police (and they'll tell you straight up).

>I wouldn’t be surprised if it was “security” or someone
linked to the security he refused.

He was calling for street justice and pointed out how Zimmerman is still alive but we are quick to kill our own for walking down the wrong street.

In response to Reply # 51


  

          

Like he and his manager just remembered they were on the phone? And then refusing to hand over phone records to show they were on the phone. Wouldn't that help police determine the exact timing of the event as well which would help find footage etc. Like what if the image they just released of two potential suspects doesn't match up with the time stamp he and his manager were supposedly on the phone. So weird. Hopefully the info out there about them not wanting to give out that info is false

Sad to hear about Jesse getting attacked and it's just fucked up it was in his own side of town, tells you even when you think you feel safe in a familiar place, you still shouldn't let your guard down all the time.

the police appear to be treating this like a hate crime. I think if the story was bullshit it would take not that long to discredit right? Just check out his credit card receipts.

It is interesting he won't share his phone with police though.

I also thought it interesting that he went straight to the hospital.

Seems like its power to disseminate harmful information among a target audience is unmatched.

FB has been utilized by the Russians too but with Facebook there's less anonymity and more restrictions to who sees what

Chatrooms / reddit are less viral

Could be wrong, that's just my impression, and I'm never on it

but they dont put a lot of measures in place because it angers conservatives (who share most of it and benefit from the parallel reality).

this is why conservatives constantly invent claims of bias. working the refs has its advantages.

who likely can't read, literally gets his information from Fox News and announced his presidency calling Mexicans rapists


our entire reality jumped the shark a long time ago. And yeah, we've seen his supporters get violent on camera many times.



So what's so hard to believe that a gay black man in America was targeted? Because their threats were "too on the nose"?

We seen these stereotypical trump people everyday with seemingly no self awareness to how evil they are; none of this shit should be that unbelievable

now they have footage of homie before and after the attack with the suspects across the street from him


so, considering the FBI seems to be taking this seriously and the disinformation campaign to discredit this thing like he was just beat up in a gay club; it looks like this shit happened as reported and actually does fit perfectly in our current surreal reality where we've seen more than enough MAGA people kill/run people over and send bombs out but everyone is still like "this shit don't sound real" for some dumb reason.

there are still some pretty big gaps in the story, outside of what transpired at a Subway.

It might very well be rando MAGA-racists. That said, I'm still like where they get bleach and rope? Do they just roll with that stuff? Did they plan and target the attack? Did they know him prior, or were they just secret racist Empire fans? My confusion more lies on the attacker's side.

Then again - 'What's the frequency, Kenneth?' Shit doesn't have to make sense.

is that he was targeted with death threats in hate mail sent to fox studios in chicago. to the point that they wanted to give him extra security (but he declined).

so as crazy as it looks...its not as crazy if it was premeditated by individuals committed enough to send him death threats beforehand.

In response to Reply # 75


  

          


1. The article does not confirm that it happened as reported, it just states dude came home beat up with a noose around his neck.

2. Also does not say "suspects" were caught on tape. It says "persons of interest". The term can mean suspects and witnesses.

I dont put a lot of stock in folks tweeting about seeing him in the club, but i do read the police statements carefully and they are wording it very carefully. Their was so much blow back from the use of the word "possibly" a hate crime, but it is probably because they have doubts about the story.

In response to Reply # 72


          

People don't randomly have bleach and rope on them so that and the threatening letters would suggest this was a pre-meditated attack.

Additionally, to catch Smollett in the streets like that also suggests they either knew where he frequented or were following him that night.

To me, that's alot of investment to attack someone that isn't particularly known for his activism and, I'd think, wouldn't be that symbolic a target.

Did some racist domestic terrorists decide that attacking a member of the "Empire" cast would send some terrifying message to black people in America? Possibly... but it's getting into the realm of being stranger than fiction.

It would be more believable if he'd just randomly been jumped or if he were on a Colin Kapernick level of activism.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

https://www.tmz.com/2019/01/31/jussie-smollett-neighbor-suspicious-redneck-rope-attack-chicago/

video from his apt complex confirms he had a rope around his neck as he walked through the lobby.

if you were gonna make up something like that...it seems like you would be more likely to do it once you got back to your place. not on your way there.

add this to the neighbor who stated she saw two suspicious men around the complex...one potentially with a rope hanging from under his shirt.

and the death threats.

im still kinda skeptical but im leaning more and more toward his version of events.

i pray to God dude didnt make this up cuz he got damn near the entire country (except the youknowwhos) coming to his defense.

https://www.tmz.com/2019/02/01/jussie-smollett-refuse-phone-cell-records-maga-rope-attack-chicago/

he cleared up the detail about the phone records...saying police requested access to his actual phone and he was uncomfortable with that. he is working on giving them the phone records soon tho.

also he says he kept the rope around his neck to preserve the evidence.

this seems like a good sign. i assume if the story was fufu then he would prolly start showing cracks and backing away from it...given all of the public attention/pressure.

because from the start I thought that the weirdness about it was that what I'm hearing from tmz or whoever they talked to is describing weird things weirdly.

so much of it is sources or rumors or whatever, the small details that have come directly from him seem fairly consistent

https://twitter.com/JussieSmollett/status/1087036824042856448

he made a tweet praising aoc and singling out trump supporters on 1/20.

he received a death threat at fox studios in chicago on either 1/22 or 1/23.
https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DyHrgz6VsAAMOHX.jpg

he was attacked on 1/29.

really quick turnaround from tweet to mail delivery. but since the attack took place right near his crib in chicago...theres a good chance they lived near there too.

the mail itself is completely consistent with the deluge of hate that journalists, activists, celebs, etc have received when they criticized trump, magabots, etc.

if you follow a lot of them on twitter...they are constantly posting the emails, letters, etc.

by now.

flipping back towards leaning towards thinking it's true.

What's interesting about this story and the Justin Fairfax story is there is this new social media pressure to declare your side from the moment you here about a story ike this.

Look at this huffpost article:

https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/virginia-democrats-justin-fairfax-sexual-assault-allegation_us_5c59eec1e4b00187b555c4b2

reporters seem taken aback that Dem law makers are taking the approach of they want to wait and see before making a decision about his guilt or innocence.

Interesting times.

http://thesource.com/2019/02/08/chicago-pd-intend-to-charge-jussie-smollett-if-a-false-report-was-filed/

Oh, what a tangled web we weave…

Jussie Smollett is in the hot seat after there have been several reports that the openly gay actor may have possibly filed a false report to police. If that’s the case, the Chicago Police Department promises to charge Smollett for making a false police report in regards to the alleged hate crime perpetrated against him on January 29th.

The investigation is still ongoing, but with the Empire actor refusing to hand his phone over to authorities, the 36-year old actor will have a hard time proving his case and avoiding jail time as his alleged assailants have managed to do.

In the meantime, Chicago PD Superintendent Eddie Johnson vehemently states on social media that if Smollett is found to not be telling the truth he will be charged.

Joe is right and this whole situation is peculiar. Why did he call the cross dressing director and his manager? I find it highly suspicious no video of the attack exists.

Now people around the country express skepticism at MAGA hate crimes because this alleged hate crime victim could be lying to police. He comes across as one of these intersectionality mfers that piss me off...

Particularly the concern trolling at the end about "now when people are really assaulted, they'll have a reason to think it's fake."

After you just did the same thing based on a bunch of speculation. and like that's not already a mainstream conservative talking point.

Really, ought to go in the Archives based on that alone.

There would be all sorts of leaked photos and messages soon after. Fuck around and find a photo of weed and use that to charge him.

Whatever evidence is on his phone he can provide to his lawyer so that person can forward it to the cops.

https://wgntv.com/2019/02/14/chicago-police-questioning-persons-of-interest-in-alleged-attack-on-jussie-smollett/

IF Jussie redacted these folks' call records, and the police independently obtained his phone data (trivial for police to do), they can then see what towers those phones hit that night (also trivial). He would have basically highlighted these numbers for the police, if that's what happened.

My view: He lied and the cops know everything.

if you scroll up...this comes after a day where the 2 men were picked up from the airport and questioned by police while their homes were being raided.

so basically...the sources are prolly the police and the 2 men revealed everything.

smh wtf was this dude thinking?

160. "They've arrested 2 people...Nigerian brothers. Wait...what? (swipe)"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          


https://www.latimes.com/entertainment/la-et-mg-jussie-smollett-suspect-arrests-20190215-story.html

Chicago police say they have arrested two brothers in connection with the possible hate crime involving “Empire” star Jussie Smollett.

“Interrogations will resume today with the two individuals and their attorney,” department spokesman Anthony Guglielimi said in a statement to The Times on Friday.

The men — who are only being identified as two Nigerian brothers — were initially being questioned as persons of interest in the attack and are now considered potential suspects, Guglielimi said.

“Detectives have probable cause that they may have been involved in an alleged crime and we are working to corroborate the allegations and investigative timeline as our investigation continues,” Guglielimi said. But they have not been charged in the Jan. 29 incident.

Guglielmi again denied reports alleging that the attack was a hoax and reiterated that Smollett is being treated as a victim.

“While we haven’t found any video documenting the alleged attack, there is no evidence to say that this is a hoax,” Guglielmi said. “The alleged victim is being cooperative at this time and continues to be treated as a victim, not a suspect.”

Police have been questioning the men since they were picked up by officers at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport on Wednesday after returning to the city from Nigeria, the Associated Press reported. Police served a search warrant at their home on Thursday.

At least one of the men worked on “Empire,” but Guglielmi did not know in what capacity, the AP said.

Smollett recounted his ordeal on “Good Morning America” on Thursday and again said that his attackers yelled racial and homophobic slurs at him, put a rope around his neck and poured a chemical on him.

He also said an image Chicago police released showing persons of interest did indeed show his attackers.

“I don’t have any doubt in my mind that that’s them,” Smollett said. “Never did.”

The musician, an openly gay LGBTQ advocate who plays an openly gay musician on the Fox musical drama, said he spoke up because “people need to hear the truth.”

“Everybody has their own idea. Some are healing and some are hurtful, but I just want young people, young members of the LGBTQ community, young, black children, to know how strong that they are,” he said.

Representatives for Smollett did not immediately respond to The Times’ request for comment on Friday.

aka same lawyer from Michael Cohen's defense team, while Chicago PD releases the two suspects without charges:

https://twitter.com/RaferWeigel/status/1096589512568844288

"High-profile Chicago defense attorney Michael Monico let it be known he was representing Jussie Smollett on RoeConn radio show today. Monico also represents Michael Cohen. He's considered one of the best defense lawyers in the country."

https://twitter.com/RaferWeigel/status/1096612477142413312

"Chicago Police Department say no charges for 2 POI in Jussie Smollett . PD says it’s because of "new evidence" they learned in interrogations. The 2 men have been released after 48 hours in custody and were not charged."

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

The outpouring of initial support doesnt see wrong. But remember the outrage about the initial headlings which said "possible" hate crime? There were lots of people indignant at people being skeptical about the story.

What do those people say now? I'm guessing they will be silent and maybe delete post rather than say, yeah my bad.

These are weird times and we haven't quite figured out how to navigate them.

https://www-m.cnn.com/2019/02/16/entertainment/jussie-smollett-attack/index.html?r=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.cnn.com%2F

Chicago (CNN) — Two law enforcement sources with knowledge of the investigation told CNN that Chicago Police believe Jussie Smollett paid two men to orchestrate the assault.
The brothers, who were arrested Wednesday, were released without charges Friday after Chicago police cited the discovery of "new evidence." The sources told CNN that the two men are now cooperating fully with law enforcement.
Smollett told authorities he was attacked early January 29 by two men who were "yelling out racial and homophobic slurs." He said one attacker put a rope around his neck and poured an unknown chemical substance on him.
The sources told CNN that there are records that show the two brothers purchased the rope found around Smollett's neck at an Ace Hardware store in Chicago.
Smollett gave his first detailed account of what he says was a hate crime against him, and the aftermath, in an interview with "Good Morning America" that aired Thursday. During the interview he expressed frustration at not being believed.
"It feels like if I had said it was a Muslim or a Mexican or someone black I feel like the doubters would have supported me a lot much more," Smollett said. "And that says a lot about the place where we are as a country right now."
CNN's attempts to reach both Smollett's representative and attorney Saturday were unsuccessful.

All this does is give fodder to the existing racists and homophobes. And like you mentioned, the potential gains were so minimal. The risks far outweighed the potential "rewards".

This is so fucked up and so annoying.

In response to Reply # 0


          

Why would he say white when clearly they are black?

Did he search for a place with zero cameras before tying the rope around and having one of them lightly scratch him?

I do get them going to Nigeria as I imagine that was their payment and plus they get to see family but if he meant to send them away so they were never found how did he fuck that up?

At least the redacted phone records and not immediately turning over his phone makes sense as I’m sure he had some damming texts or calls on there.

I don’t get why he would do this it ain’t like he didn’t alredy have a good amount of fame and was on the covers of magazines and recognized as a gay hero.

219. "They Should Just Make Him Disappear"
In response to Reply # 193


  

          

...then the show should be put to rest.

I was already getting tired of the show, and I was kind of rooting for his character Jamal to get things right with his family & boyfriend, and finally put that damn album out that he owes; but after all this fake attack shit aka publicity stunt, his career is over like O.J..

They should just write him out without even making it a big situation, just let him finish up his contract, give smallest camera time as possible, then just let him either disappear or go on a trip to the UK with a note saying bye fam I'm out; and write the story like the family don't give a fuck about him being gone, on some Lil Jon saying "BYE NIGGA" type steeze.

All of the facts seem like a throw away plot for his show.

Trekking many waterfront blocks alone--except for that hawk that was out--to a 24 hour Subway for dinner...after arriving in town from a cross country flight, well past midnight.

Perps conveniently wearing MAGA ballcaps,in the cold instead of skullcaps, who also happen to be carrying bleach...and noose...and he bravely got away.

Sounded immediately to me like a lie my little brother would tell around the time he first got locked up.

Fox News, MAGAites, & the rest of 😈ish-❄️s are about to eat this up, and use it to distract completely from their King's fall.

Look at the fake tears and false bravado. https://youtu.be/QGNWLo4OA3I?t=34
I feel bad for all the respected folk who had his back, and the validity of their legitimacy.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

I shouldn't be shocked and surprised but damn homie. You went out and made up some dumb shsit for attention.

For those with a legal background help a brother out. I seem to remember a general rule of thumb-basically whatever crime that you falsely allege, you are subject to that same penalty. Each state is different so...


A quick look at the Illinois code shows he committed a class 4 felony. That could land him with fines and up to 3 years. Of course a good defense attorney will get it knocked down but I wonder will he get time like Pac? He claims he is the gay Pac so..

Illinois code:

(720 ILCS 5/26-1)Sec. 26-1. Disorderly conduct.-->(4) false report = class 4 felony.

(730 ILCS 5/5-4.5-45)For a Class 4 felony:The sentence of imprisonment shall be a determinate sentence of not less than one year and not more than 3 years.

If this were a real hate crime, wouldn’t it be correct to say that the perpetrators victimized not just Jussie, but the entire gay and black communities, essentially terrorizing them?

If so, it would seem to me that Jussie owes the members of those communities an apology, as his ruse, in order to be successful, depended on successfully wreaking that same terror among those marginalized groups.

It’s really fucking foul.

No matter what side someone is on, we are in a point in society that we would rather believe first because letting it be known to otbers that we support makes us feeel better. Its like we forget we can be sketpical, logical, and still support and hold our beliefs at the same time.

we SHOULD give people the benefit of the doubt when they say they have been vicitimized in some way...because ultimately, the Tawanas and Ashleys and Jussies are OUTLIERS. The overwhelming majority of poeple with the courage to report being attacked have actually been attacked and shouldn't have to be retraumatized by folks projecting their own doubts onto them.

But ultimately, the cost of the liars is extremely high. Now, even more real victims will keep quiet for fear of not being believed. This is why it breaks my heart so much if he lied like this...

or purposely brush off details that don't seem to make much sense. Especially when as you said this comes at a cost.

I think most skeptics, at least in this post wanted to believe he was telling the truth, and wanted more clarification on some of the details that sounded off.

who were invested in it not being true, as much as there were people emotionally invested in supporting his claim.

how do I know? I was skeptical of the story. I am also not an investigator assigned to it, so I shut the fuck up and waited for more evidence to come in.

no one attacked me for waiting.

people in this thread have clear agendas, and they're mostly looking to extrapolate one instance to cover all others, while pretending like they haven't done the same shit (fake concern about needing to know THE TRUTH) over and over for years

247. "Apparently, Mr. Motherfucker, you didnt read my first reply"
In response to Reply # 243


  

          

But it's cool...and kinda expected.

No need for some lengthy "insult-laden" reply either...you made your point.

Keep you (when, in that case, when I said "we" and "us", I wasn't talking to or about you...so "YOU" jumped into some shit that didn't pertain to "YOU") out of collective statements.

...hmph...I guess "YOU" should keep yourself out if they don't pertain to "YOU" then, right?

So mind "YOUR" business..

232. "Same. this is so upsetting. Hard to believe he would do this"
In response to Reply # 223


          

part of me is holding out hope that lying ass CPD are somehow still behind this

but if Jussie lied, i just wish he would say so now and not dig his heels in by lawyering up

this is so tragic on multiple levels.

its almost like which is worse? him actually being attacked (personal trauma) or him lying about being attacked (collective trauma)...both scenarios are fukked up...but the lie hurts so many of us...

*sigh*

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

like I don't want worst case scenario to unfold and this dude ends up suicidal and that's unfortunately the only way conservative media won't be dancing all over this. Still slight hope the police are also MAGAs and doing their best to pin it on an innocent black man cuz lying about all this is stranger than season 5 of The Wire.

239. "Mascots like Jussie need to be ostracized and I have questions"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Police caught the Nigerians responsible for the "attack". They found bleach and red hats but released them without charges, allegedly. Meanwhile Jussie got a legal team far above his salary from empire.

Pro lgbt policy was attached to anti-lynching legislation at the last second and passed with the aid of media attention from this farce?

Does the white lgbt community attach themselves to other racial communities with the same fervor as the black community? Does the happen to the Jewish, Asian, or Hispanic communities?

I'm damn tired of them exploiting any beneficial policy towards us and simultaneously labeling us as collectively homophobic. This the same community that mocks us repeatedly... *EDIT*

You mascot LGBTQIA black Americans need to wake up and stop championing this bullshit. Jussie faked a hate crime with the end result his reputation tarnished and pro white lgbt policy passed. I got a Murda Mook 45 minute round for any of you black Americans on here supporting Jussie that want smoke.

but if the people you hang out with or podcasts you listen to feature this as the most important story of the day because omg they just have to uncover the details.

maybe don't interact with those folks?

they're fuckin losers and they're making you a loser too.
