Two men wearing MAGA (Make America Great Again) caps attacked Empire star Jussie Smollett in Chicago this morning and while calling him homophobic names, racial slurs, and shouting that this is MAGA country, they beat him, broke his ribs, put a noose around his neck, and tried to pour bleach down his throat. These masked assailants are still at large. The increase in hate crimes, mass murders, and racial divides since President Trump took office to “Make America Great Again” is not very “great” at all. These actions represent the worst of America and humankind. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Jussie, an innocent actor, and his family for his full recovery from this horrible hateful crime.
