Actor Jussie Smollett has tweeted support for embattled Victorian MLC Andy Meddick and his family, after his daughter Kielan was involved in incident in Fitzroy last night.
Meddick’s daughter was confronted by a member of the public over graffiti, after which she threw a spray can at the individual who threw it back. Meddick believed it was 100% a targeted, political attack based on who her father was.
Smollett weighed in on the incident after going viral on Twitter.
“Thoughts and prayers to Andy Meddick and family. Subway sandwich or spray paint can it’s the same. Ignore the haters. Love wins, even if y’all family worship Satan. #AndySmollett #AussieJussie” Smollett tweeted.
Meddick gave several versions of events on 3AW, but says his story will change as new information comes to light and as politically appropriate.
Victoria Police say they’re investigating the matter, but no charges will be pressed as Meddick’s vote was deemed too valuable.
