(Daily Mail) House Speaker Nancy Pelosi deleted a tweet expressing sympathy for Jussie Smollett, posted before allegations he faked a homophobic and racist attack on himself emerged.
The actor and singer claimed he was attacked at a Subway by two men in ski masks in Chicago on January 29 at around 2am.
The “Empire” star told police the attackers poured a bleach-like chemical on him and tied a rope noose around his neck, yelling racist and homophobic insults as well as ‘This is MAGA country’.
He told officers the unknown chemical substance was used on him while ‘Empire f****t’ and ‘Empire n*****’ was shouted at him.
