Jussie Smollett has found a friend in the FBI.
Good news for the multi-talented actor below…
Days before he was attacked by MAGA supporters in Chicago the entertainer received a racist note which threatened to harm him following his condemnation of Donald Trump.
The FBI believe this may be linked to his assault and are working with him to locate the cowards who sent it.
Sources on set tell us a private security company was hired by the show and met with FBI agents to establish a protocol for inspecting all incoming mail. We’re told the team wears gloves so the evidence in question is not contaminated. The security team has 2 functions … to flag threatening, incoming mail and alert the FBI, and to possibly link new items to the letter Jussie already received, containing homophobic and racists epithets along with an image of a noose.
Jussie recently thanked the public for its support following the attack and has resumed work on ‘Empire.’
