’Persons of interest’ identified in attack on Empire star Jussie Smollett

Chicago police said that ’persons of interest’ have been identified in the alleged homophobic and racist assault on Empire star Jussie Smollett. The actor was attacked by two men in Chicago earlier this week. The attackers allegedly poured an ’unknown chemical substance’ over Smollett and wrapped a rope around his neck.

He was at Subway at 2am what subway is open at 2 am? None in his area. They poured bleach on him in artic tempratures the bleach would freeze. It took cops 45m to arive and he still had the noose on his neck, who would leave the noose on after being choked with it. And the cherry on top; these racist white guys with ski masks yelled this is maga country. If they're wearing ski mask how do you know they're white?

This has hoax written all over it. And the letter he got in January looks like a drawing of a 5-year old. The media will use this to call every Republican a racist and homophobe for a news cycle and an expensive FBI investigation that will come up with nothing will be quietly filed away in a few weeks...

This situation is so strange. It’s like it’s too perfect to fit an anti trump narrative. It certainly could have happened, but it’s just so unlikely to have happened the way it’s being presented. Maybe there’s something deeper.

hmmm. I didn't realize a democrat-voting pro-gay district with lots of blacks is considered MAGA Country. I think these alleged Maga punks were in the wrong hood.

Why would a couple of racist homophobes know who this guy is in the first place? Are they the target audience for Empire? Seems to me someone wants more attention. Maybe his contract on the show is ending soon.

Is there any actual evidence besides the victim and 1 subway surveillance camera (that didn’t show anything of substance)

Homophobic and racist? Did he hear them say Ni**er faggot, does he have further evidence proving them being homophobic racists? Do they have a homophobic and/or racist history. Until the details are released we cannot make assumtions of a alleged racialy homophobic assault.

Be me another lovely evening walking outside in -40 degree weather made sure to bring my noose and bleach, just in case i see any n****rs Wear my trump hat over my skimask, because i'm the kind of genocidal dude who makes sure to shout my political ideology nobody in this extraordinarily populated city sees me, as i have my invisibility cloak on also have to bring an industrial heater along so that my bleach doesn't freeze, since it's 40 degrees below it's freezing point finally find a suitable victim It's JUSSIE SMOLLETT. I recognize him from the HIT NETFLIX SHOW, EMPIRE® me and all my friends in the Klan just love that show, so i recognize him instantly immediately start shouting n****r and f****t at him nobody hears this or comes to help, since I've activated my sound-proof forcefield He looks right at me, he's so WOKE he sees through the invis cloak. No matter, i swftly catch up to him and put the noose around his neck not quite sure why I did this, it didn't serve a purpose beyond aesthetic begin pouring the bleach all over him while shouting "TAKE THAT JUSSIE SMOLLETT, STAR OF THE HIT SHOW EMPIRE®, YOU F****T N****R. I'M AN ENTHUSIASTIC SUPPORTER OF PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP, BY THE WAY" now that i've emptied my bottle of bleach on him, i swiftly strip him naked and dry it all off, clean it from the sidewalk, and dress him up in the exact replica of his outfit that i conveniently brought with to mask my crime, and dye the black color back into his hair escape into the night with his clothes, my bleach bottle, and industrial heater evade detection from all observers and cameras on my way out

No, what they said is that they reviewed 200 hours of video and only saw two guys going the opposite direction of the supposed attack. They're not suspects, the cops just want to ask them if they saw anything. The supposed victim was seen leaving the frame of one camera with nothing on his neck, and entering the frame of the next camera with a rope on his neck, less than sixty seconds apart. It's a hoax.
