Yesterday the world was left in shock when news broke that 'Empire' star Jussie Smollett had been hospitalized after being brutally attacked. While we knew that it was a bias attack by men who proclaimed this is "MAGA Country", no other details were made available.
Now Harvey Levin of TMZ has disclosed more details about the attack saying that Jussie was alone in a home in Chicago when he got hungry at around 3:00 A.M. and decided to walk alone to a Subway restaurant. That's when the attack took place and he himself went to a hospital to seek treatment for some fractured ribs.
Harvey also disclosed that Jussie had turned down Fox's offer to have security with him after a threatening letter was received at the network. While Jussie believes security people infringe on his privacy, he has accepted the protection after this attack.
No word on wether or not 'Empire' will continue filing without him or wait for him to recover from this terrible attack.
Sending prayers to Jussie, the LGBTQ community and our entire nation during these tumultuous times.
