One of “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett’s neighbors says he doesn’t believe the Hollywood star was attacked in the manner he claims, according to a Monday morning report.

“I don’t believe it happened the way he said it did,” Agin Muhammad, who lives in the same upscale area of Chicago as Smollett, told New York Post. 

“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” Muhammad continued.

Another man who is familiar with the neighborhood told the post that he flat out does not believe the attack happened at all. He would not give The Post his name, but reportedly said the attack “doesn’t really make sense.”

“It’s a lie, because Chicago is the most liberal city around,” he continued. ““They have cameras everywhere … Why can’t they find the attack?”

Smollett claim that he was attacked by two men shouting “this is MAGA country,” and that a rope was tied around his neck while he was soaked in bleach. The Chicago police have viewed “hundreds of hours” of surveillance tape from near where the alleged attack took place. They have not identified any possible suspects, and Smollett has refused to turn his phone over to them for examination after claiming that he was speaking with his manager just before the attack.

Police said that if Smollett is lying about the attack, which seems plausible, that he will face repercussions.
