Jussie Smollett is now home and recovering after enduring a vicious physical attack in Chicago. Unfortunately, his attackers are still on the loose.

In the wee hours of Monday morning, Smollett was attacked by two white men wearing ski masks, while on his way to Subway. According to TMZ, the men yelled, “Aren’t you that fa**ot ‘Empire’ ni**a?,” before beating him, fracturing his rib, tying a noose around his neck and pouring bleach on him. As they walked away they shouted, “This is MAGA country.” Jussie was taken to Northwestern Memorial where he was treated and later discharged on Tuesday morning.

Apparently, this may have been a premeditated attack. That Grape Juice reports that Smollett received this chilling threat delivered to the FOX studio where he shoots “Empire” in Chicago.
