"Empire" star hospitalized in alleged hate crime

I heard this reported on NPR on the way home tonight. They sounded so somber and serious, saying it was a suspected hate crime.

They have a "here's what we know" approach they love to use, and they did it with this story, claiming the information came from the Chicago police.

They told the whole bit, how the assailants came up to him, started calling him homophobic slurs, and started beating him. Then they poured "chemicals" of some kind on him, and put a rope around his neck, before running off.

Police said they were looking for the men, and asked anyone with any information to contact them. Fortunately, the victim was not seriously injured, and was able to get himself to the hospital, without the need for an ambulance.

:popcorn3:

In other words, there is no evidence whatsoever that this happened. I was laughing the whole time after reading this thread during the day. Somehow the reporter forgot to mention the intense cold, or the extreme frequency of cases like this being fake.

Pretty clearly, it's either completely fake or the guy was beaten up by a drug dealer or someone he was hooking up with. My bet is he had been fucking a "straight" guy on the down low who needed to protect his secret.

I ventured over to the comments section for the article about this at "The Root" (Gawker's site aimed at blacks--laughably leftist) and encouragingly even there, a good number of the commenters were calling bullshit on this.

An obvious sexcapade gone wrong. Chicago is the last place two white dudes would step to a black man at 2 AM, given how many people get shot there every day. Hell, black dudes don't simply step to aother black dude at 2 AM. Especially not at -30 degrees so you can't even see who you are stepping up to. Rope was probably from a sex rodeo, dude got fucked and chucked. And then they kicked his ass for good measure.

Only liberal faggot can make up something like 'MAGA country'. The story is bullshit to me with the set up of person carrying bleach, noose, and attacking someone outside a subway. The items carried by two white men sounds like kinky sex gone wrong and have to make up a story.

Well this is just great. I always keep an emergency noose and some emergency bleach in my ute but I guess now I'll have to risk getting around without them in case I get pulled over in faggot country and charged with conspiracy to beat faggots.

Michelle Malkin just posted a column about this at V-Dare. She comes to the same conclusions we did here.

Specifically, she wonders what someone would be doing wandering around liberal Chicago at 2 a.m. with bleach and rope claiming it's "MAGA country." Is Michelle getting her ideas from this forum? Or is it just very evident that all of this sounds like badly-written fiction?

Either way, skepticism of this alleged crime is becoming more widespread. Malkin's column can be found here.

Update: As of 1 a.m. Eastern Time, the hourly radio news reported that "police have so far not found any video that shows a crime, only video of Smollett walking alone."

The HodgeTwins are popular YouTubers that recently "came out" as conservative and have been facing a ton of liberal backlash for it.

These guys are former army and red pill as fuck, even they're calling bullshit

I'm gonna call BS. Its fucking freezing all around the Chicagoland area.

What has been happening crime wise is theft over coats. Yes coats. People are being held up at gunpoint and forced to give up their coats - CanadaGoose in particular. Basically luxury winter coats that cost over 1k.

How much you want to bet this guy was flashing one and attracted the wrong kind of attention? Maybe he tried to refuse and they beat him. Just a theory though

The rest of the details I've seen online about this guys beating all seem staged... almost like a plot out of Empire.

Maybe will find out in a few weeks it was all just a publicity stunt.

Agreed on the temperature there. It's like 30 below without wind chill, and 50 below with it. They're saying Chicago is colder than Antarctica or the top of Mount Everest. People are worrying about what to do when their furnaces don't make enough heat to keep the house warm at these extreme temperatures. There weren't any guys going around beating people up in that weather!

Everything about this story just doesn’t add up. One thing I know is that when the temps get this cold like they are the crime levels drop big time. Street criminals do not hang out at 2:00am at street corners when the wind chill factor is minus 30 below zero, even in crime infested Chicago. The whole thing about being in MAGA country is pure BS. Chicago is 95 percent liberal democrat and the only conservatives are in the far outer counties.

"People are worrying about what to do when their furnaces don't make enough heat to keep the house warm at these extreme temperatures."

This probably makes the best point of all. Crime tends to disappear during cold snaps and snowstorms. Even Baltimore's murder-a-day roll call came to a halt last year when it got super cold.

By the way, the way I keep the house warm is to center activity around only the kitchen and living room. In the living room I use a space heater to take the strain off the main heating system and I heat the kettle on the stove to boiling point every few hours. Not only does the stove heat up the kitchen/living room area, but the extra humidity helps. From what I've noticed, humidity seems to hold heat better than dry air does.

We're not as cold as Chicago here on the East Coast, but I've heard about HVAC systems failing when temperatures drop, so I make sure mine doesn't have to run 24/7 by doing the above.

Up here in canada we get cold winters every year so we are prepared to a certain degree.
My cousin works in Hvac and has told me the majority of systems installed in newer homes (after 2000) are trash, cheap materials, parts, workmanship. The manufacturers build low quality products that break often to keep selling them new parts.

Wherever i live i always try to get a place with small windows and a small amount of them. In winter you lose soooo much heat through windows regardless if they are triple panned Pela windows or some crap on sale from home depot.
Best bet is to put heavy blankets over the windows. I've found this works best for those cold snaps.

Back on topic.

When i heard the information he was at subway at 2am on a monday night by himself. I'm thinking what a loser this guy is....
But when i read he was gay i automatically thought gay hookup went bad or some variation of "high risk homosexual encounter".

Its kinda like if you go out to the club on a night with shitty weather, you know the girls at the clubs are looking for dick.
Why else would this man go to subway at 2am when there are like a million food ordering apps. Never mind this guy being on a decently popular tv show so we know he can afford it.

Chicago has ubereats, grub hub and doordash. Why is this dumbass leaving the house for subway, in the middle of the night when its 30 below?!

My money is on some weird gay hookup shit gone wrong.

Listen up honeys and all you fucking white males, don a MAGA hat son and brag about your new gun, I'm a spit a story backwards, it starts at the end.

The noose came off his neck and back into my hand, the bleach splashed back into the bottle, the cap twisted back on again.

His hands up like and he say 'racist and homophobic that's'. just after my man Thad Chad Johnson says 'nigga Empire faggot, that you aren't?' as he puts on his MAGA hat.

Thad say 'country MAGA is this faggot' after Empire faggot said 'him get will Mueller, bitch'

We walkin' backwards on the street, I say 'cold fuckin' it's' and Thad says 'minorities many too there's, shit'.

I walk backwards and to my building stoop where I throw Thad my noose after he say 'noose the got?' and I make an 'ok!' sign and say 'MAGA, pede up what's?'

Back up the steps to my pad, my cell rings my man Thad, saying 'block our on faggot's Empire' wanna give a taste of MAGA to that commie scum he say 'beer your finish you after, come'

An empty Yuengling pulls out of the blue bin and into my hand, I spit beer back into the bottle, thinking about this young thing who left, just a few minutes ago.

She kiss me and say 'bad man orange!', I slap her ass and say 'storage, in AK's my' cuz she say 'gun that needs one no' cuz I said 'crime black on black much too there's, yo'.

She jumps into my arms and we walk back to the bed, she jumps on the bed and my pants drop, spits a nut back into my dick and says 'supporter Trump another fucked I believe can't I, shit'.

I say 'pussies for is soy' and she laughs cutesy and coy.

'on hat MAGA your with me fuck' she says the red hat jumps on my head, and she gives her legs a spread.

Milliseconds turn to seconds which turn to minutes and I'm alone, save for a knock at the door and a voice saying 'home?'

The clock ticks back from twelve to eleven to ten, that's about the time this story began, a call from my man Thad on my voicemail.


'Mother fucker...this TDS Empire faggot is in town...he right here at Subway, he right there...its freezing out and no one will be out...lets bleach and lynch this fucker...'

Here is video from Tim Pool, a Chicago Native, about the attack.

As stated from the video, the neighbor that actor was attacked is wealthy neighborhood filled with private security. Someone will have footage of the attack or attackers in the area. The area also has nothing going on after 6 pm sounds about right to me as someone that has lived in Second City. The only thing a man is going to be doing at 2 am is getting drunk, getting laid, or going home. Another thing to note from the video is the timeline of events as the moment TMZ reported the attack, the victim change his story to collaborate with the information from TMZ. Once again, this entire thing is bullshit.
