“Empire” star Jussie Smollett was recently attacked due to a hate crime leaving him hospitalized as he was coming out of his apartment.
According to police reports, Jussie walked out of his Chicago apartment at 2:00 AM, two white men in ski masks brutally attacked him, called him the F-word and N-word,
They also reportedly put a noose around his neck. Thankfully Jussie was released from the hospital and was listed in “good condition” and reportedly suffered a fractured rip.
Speaking about it Halle Berry expressed her utter shock at how cruel people can be to hurt such a person who has not wronged them.
“I’ve known Jussie since he was 10 years old, and a man of @JussieSmollett’s talent, intellect and kindness should be an undisputed blessing to our community. My heart is hurting knowing that he’s suffering…and for what? Just for being? The fact his presence on this earth would be perceived as a threat to anyone only shows the magnitude of their fear and confusion.
I pray that our country learns to heal, that we may see each other for WHO we are and nothing more. We gotta find the LOVE yawl! Praying endlessly for Jussie’s quick recovery at Northwestern Memorial. Anyone with information is asked to call Area Central Detectives at 312-747-8382″
