Update 1/1/18 11:30 a.m .: Jussie Smollett issued a statement three days after he was attacked and beaten by two men, who are investigating as a "possible crime of hatred." He said Essence:
"Let me start by saying that I am fine. My body is strong, but my soul is stronger. More important, I want to say thank you. The litter of love and support of my people has meant more than I can ever really put in words.
I am working with the authorities and I have been 100% factual and consistent at all levels. Despite my frustrations and the deep concern about certain inaccuracies and false representations that have been published, I still believe that justice will be done.
As my family has said, these types of cowardly attacks are happening to my sisters, brothers and sisters who do not make up their sex daily. I am not and should not be seen as an isolated incident. Soon we will discuss and address all the details of this terrible incident, but I need a moment to process it. The most important thing is that, during the time of trauma, pain and pain, there is still the responsibility to drive with love. It's all I know. And that can not be expelled from me. "
Original story 18/01/18 12:50 p.m .: Empire Actor Jussie Smollet was hospitalized on Tuesday morning at 2 in the afternoon after being assaulted in Chicago, which the police investigate as a "possible crime of hatred."
The Chicago Department of Police unveiled a statement that said Jussie was attacked and struck by two people calling "racial and homophobic outbursts." The statement also described as "two spilled and unknown chemicals of the victim" and "wrapped a rope on the victim's neck."
TMZ reports that the two people called: "This is a MAGA country" during the attack, and possibly it is connected to a note that Fox Studios received eight days ago that he went to Jussie and said: "You will die black f * g ".
After the assault, Jussie moved to the Northwestern Memorial where he was later issued and considered "in good condition."
Once the news broke, the celebrities and their television family of 20th Century Fox and Fox Entertainment showed a support to Jussie:
