You’ll no doubt be shocked to learn Jussie Smollett’s neighbors in Streeterville do not believe he was attacked by racist rednecks in the dead of winter who put a noose around his neck and beat him while proclaiming their liberal city is “MAGA country.”

From the New York Post:

CHICAGO — Nearly two weeks after “Empire” star Jussie Smollett claimed he was the victim of a racist, homophobic attack, cops have yet to identify any suspects — and some people in his tony Chicago neighborhood are growing skeptical.

“I don’t believe it happened the way he said it did,” said Agin Muhammad, who lives in the same swank high-rise near the Navy Pier as Smollett.

“I’ve been in this neighborhood five years. I don’t believe it, not around here . . . Half the people are gay and the other half are black.”

That’s MAGA country for you, folks!

A patron at Lizzie McNeill’s Irish Pub, about a block from the scene of the alleged Jan. 29 incident, said Smollett’s story “doesn’t really make sense.”

“It’s a lie, because Chicago is the most liberal city around,” said the man, who wouldn’t give his name. “They have cameras everywhere. . . Why can’t they find the attack?”

Just a thought: maybe they can’t find it because it never happened?

Supposedly, he returned to his apartment after the attack with the noose still around his neck and his subway sandwich still in hand.

His manager also claimed he heard the event occur but then he and Smollett allegedly refused to give police access to their phones.

Regardless, police have reportedly subpoenaed their phone records.

Police said last week “if the investigation does reveal [Smollett] made a false report he will be held accountable,” according to Fox 32 Chicago reporter Rafer Weigel.

We’ll have to wait and see how this turns out.
