The execs over at Fox and Empire are showing Jussie Smollett exactly how they film, and have started shooting at the scene of his alleged hate crime hoax.

On Tuesday, production vehicles for show's sixth and final season were spotted in Streeterville, Chicago. This is the exact same area where Smollett claims he was attacked by racist Trumpers who yelled "MAGA Country" as they punched him, tied a noose around his neck and doused him with bleach. 

Twitter was abuzz with pictures of the area.

After a very robust police investigation into the alleged crime, charges were brought against Smollet for staging the attack. The charges, which were later dropped by the state are now under review by a Special Prosecutor. The City of Chicago is also now suing Smollett for costs accrued in the investigation  and the Osundairo brothers are also suing him for defamation.

Smollett has always denied the charges against him and maintains that he did not conspire with the Osundairo brothers to stage the attack.
