Jussie Smollett will most likely address his alleged assault at his upcoming show in Los Angeles on Saturday.
As we reported, the Empire star’s concert at the Troubadour is still on despite his alleged attack, where two white men fractured one of his ribs, put a noose around his neck, poured a substance believed to be bleach on him, and yelled, “This is MAGA country.”
According to TMZ, the 35-year-old landed in L.A. on Thursday, merely two days after being discharged from the hospital.
The actor — who is reportedly still sporting scars and swelling — not only still plans to go on, he will most likely discuss issues such as homophobia, racism, and America under President Donald Trump while on stage.
Though tickets for the intimate venue — which has a capacity of 400 — were available on Tuesday but quickly sold out. However, because of the media attention surrounding the concert, tickets which sold for $20-$35 each are being resold for TWICE that amount or even more.
As we wrote on Wednesday, Chicago PD released a screen grab from surveillance footage that shows two persons of interest in the area at the time of the alleged incident.
