Mike Epps Has Message for Jussie Smollet’s Attackers: “I’ll be in Chicago! Jump out on me!”
The entertainment industry has displayed an outpouring of love for recent hate crime victim – “Empire” star Jussie Smollett. He is currently recovering from a brutal attack in Chicago. Comedian Mike Epps is the latest industry vet to come to his defense on social media. Mike dared Jussie’s attackers to attempt to hurt him, insinuating that they would have a different outcome. His caption read:
“@eppsie Please try that sh*t on me !!!!! I don’t claim to be a tough guy but I dare y’alll cowards!!”
Mike Epps even gave the specifics of when and where he’d be available to challenge them. He said:
“Public service announcement: I will be in Chicago performing at The Pavilion on Valentine’s weekend. You cowards that jumped out on Jussie in Chicago? I’ll be there performing in Chicago. I’m going to the same building. I’mma walk out the same building that Jussie did. I’m begging you- please jump out on me. Jump out on me with a noose. Whoever did it, please- if you [on] Instagram and you hear this – please jump out on me. I’ll be in Chicago.”
MAGA supporters recently cornered the singer/actor in Chicago, beating him and attempting to tie a noose around his neck while shouting racist and homophobic slurs at him. “Empire” creator Lee Daniels shared the first look at Jussie Smollett since his attack. He shows mild swelling and bruising in a screenshot of their FaceTime call.
