Jussie Smollet, who stars as Jamal Lyon in popular Empire series, was brutally attacked by two homophobic men which landed him in the hospital.

Sources directly connected to Jussie tell TMZ, the actor arrived in Chicago from New York late Monday, and at around 2 AM he was hungry and went to a Subway with plans to get food. However, he was attacked.

When they saw Jussie, the men - both white - yelled: "Aren't you that faggot 'Empire' nigga?"

They attacked him and although he tried to fight back, they overpowered him and beat him badly leaving him with a fractured rib.

As if that wasn't enough, they also put a rope around his neck, poured bleach on him and as they left they yelled, "This is MAGA country."

Jussie was taken to Northwestern Memorial where he was treated. He was discharged later Tuesday morning.

Chicago PD said they are investigating the attack as a possible hate crime, and they are canvasing the area for any video.
