Wednesday, Jan 30, 2019
Add our names to the long list of people sending their love, support and prayers to Jussie Smollett.
The Empire star and friend to our show was the target of a hate crime yesterday in Chicago. The actor stepped out to get a bite to eat after a late flight when two people attacked him, put a rope around his neck and threw bleach on him while calling him homophobic and racial slurs. The two men wearing ski masks yelled, “this is MAGA country” before fleeing the scene. Tune in below to see the outpour of love from Jussie’s peers and call for justice for Jussie.
