The face of the potential suspects in Jussie Smollett‘s attack on Tuesday has been released by the Chicago Police on their Twitter page.
According to authorities they were captured on surveillance footage and are now wanted for questioning.
The police also stated that the two masked people were screaming “racial and homophobic slurs.”
They reportedly hit the Empire star in the face, tied a noose around his neck, and “poured an unknown chemical substance” on him.
Smollett told law enforcement that the attackers yelled “MAGA country.” The case is being investigated as a possible hate crime.
