According to TMZ, Jussie Smollett was the victim of a violent attack around 2am on Monday.

The actor was in Chicago filming “Empire,” when he decided to head to a local Subway to buy something to eat.

After he purchased his food, he was greeted outside by two white men wearing ski masks.

One reportedly yelled, “Aren’t you that f***ot ‘Empire’ n*****?”

They then viciously began to attack Jussie, and even though the actor fought back, he was beat badly and his rib was fractured.

The men then put a noose around Jussie’s neck and poured bleach on him.

Before leaving the scene, they also yelled, “This is MAGA country.”

Jussie survived the attack and was treated at Northwestern Memorial. He was discharged earlier today.

Interestingly enough, eight days before the attack, Jussie was sent a threatening letter by the way of FOX Studios in Chicago.

The letter read, “You will die black f*g.”

That Grape Juice was the first to break the story.

UPDATE: According to the Chicago Police Department, the attack is now being investigated as a hate crime.

    Some people should have never been born. They bring nothing but evil to the world. And Donald Trump has only given them more courage to go through with their evil acts.

    They say Chicago PD is investigating it as a battery but why not a hate crime?

    How disgusting! I hope the police finds them and prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law. Wishing Jussie a speedy and full recovery. I hope he doesn’t acquire PTSD over this incident.

    This is why Kevin Hart and his supporters need to understand the the magnitude of their ignorance. It is very hard to be black and gay in this country.

    I wish Jussie a speedy recovery but in my honest opinion his story doesn’t make sense. 2 racist walking around at 3am in -20 degree weather carrying a noose and bleach. Then instead of calling the cops right away he goes to his friends house and calls then an hr later all the while asking them to turn their body cameras off. I pray he is telling the truth and not making this up
