Jussie Smollett’s Concert Meet And Greet Cancelled
If you had plans to meet “Empire” star, Jussie Smollett, you may have to shelf that wish for a while as it has been gathered that he will not get up close and personal with his fans in Los Angeles this weekend.
The reason for this is simple, there are concerns about his safety just days after the Chicago attack.
Smollett is scheduled to play a sold-out show at the famous Troubador Saturday night but his planned meet-and-greet session has been cancelled.
This was made known yesterday, February 1st afternoon when an email was sent to all ticketholders. The email says meet and greet ticketholders can get a refund or donate the cost of the ticket to the Black AIDS Institute. The mail reads in part,
“For security reasons we cannot accommodate any meet and greets.”
The email doesn’t refer to any specific threat. Read the email below,
It would be recalled that Smollett was attacked on Tuesday in a suspected homophobic and racist attack in Chicago when two men beat him, poured bleach on him and left a rope around his neck. He suffered a broken rib in the attack and had to take himself to the hospital.
