Celebrities have poured their love and support out for Empire star, Jussie Smollett. Smollett was attacked in Chicago while trying to get food at a Subway.
50 Cent posted a picture of Smollett on social media with the caption, “Sending Prayers to @jussiesmollett we hope his attackers are quickly brought to justice.”
T.I. took a different tone with his post writing, “It’s a Disgusting F__ing shame we continue to allow this s___ to happen to OUR PEOPLE with no recourse!!!!” he wrote. “THE HITS WONT STOP UNTIL WE HIT BACK!!!! Be strong & Stay solid, We here for you Bro.”
Other celebrities to send well wishes to Jussie include, Questlove, Da Brat, Twista, Xzibit, and many more. Smollett was attacked by MAGA supporters who put a rope around his neck and poured bleach on him.
What should be done to combat violence against people of color and the LGBTQ community? What should the punishment of Smollett’s attackers be?
