On Monday night, Empire actor Jussie Smollett was attacked in Chicago by two white men who beat him, yelled racist and homophobic slurs, and put his head in a noose; they also poured a chemical substance over him and yelled, “This is MAGA country” before running away. The actor self-transported to a nearby hospital, and is reportedly recovering in “good” physical condition.

Police are currently investigating the attack as a hate crime; they have identified “persons of interest” and issued a community alert with photos of two people walking away from a security camera.
