Popular American movie star Jussie Smollett, who is well known for his role as Jamal Lyon in drama series Empire, has been quite open about being gay. However, that led to him being attacked and badly injured by some homophobes in Chicago on January 29, 2019
According to several reports, two white men yelled homophobic and racial slurs at him as they attacked him. It was also gathered that they put a rope around his neck and poured bleach on him. The attack has drawn several reactions from his fans all over the world.
Amongst others, the famous Nigerian cross-dresser Bobrisky, also took to his Instagram page to react to the case. The self-acclaimed number one male Barbie doll posted a photo of Jussie with a touching caption to show that he was quite shaken by the news.
He wrote: “Heartbroken, Don’t even have the words right now!! How inhumane but it’s no surprise as the hearts of men are desperately wicked… Sending you love and light, Get well soon..No man deserves to be judged just because he sins differently!! May the angels protect you, You are loved!!”
