Actor Jussie Smollett arrived in Chicago on Monday night. He was out to get fast food at 2 a.m. when he was allegedly attacked by two Trump supporters in MAGA hats who recognized him in the freezing cold, beat him, poured bleach on him and put a noose around his neck.
Smollett’s story keeps changing.
Now the manager says he overheard the assault.
Police have video of Jussie in a Subway around the time.
On Wednesday night police released video of two individuals walking down the street in winter coats.
That’s all they got after hours of viewing surveillance video.
MTO News – the most visited African American News Network – reported the Chicago police do not believe the evolving story of the alleged assault.
MTO News reported:
Jussie Smollett, 36, claims that he was beaten, by a group of racist Trump supporters. But now Chicago police are questioning whether the attack happened exactly as the Empire actor is claiming.
Jussie arrived in Chicago on Monday night. He was on his way to get fast food at 2 a.m. when he was allegedly attacked.
According to Jussie’s account, two masked men recognized the actor from his role as openly homosexual singer/songwriter Jamal Lyon on Empire, and shouted, “Aren’t you that f**got Empire n**ger?”
Jussie told police that the suspects began beating him and poured bleach on him, before tying a rope as a noose around his neck.
Smollett claims that he drove himself to the hospital. Eventually, the actor was discharged in “good condition” after receiving treatment for minor injuries including a cracked rib.
MTO News spoke with a person close to Jussie with INTIMATE KNOWLEDGE into the investigation – who tells us that police are not convinced that Jussie is telling them everything. The insider told MTO News, “Jussie is holding back information.”
Michelle Malkin weighed in on it.
