If Jussie Smollett had a moral compass with a sense of right or wrong on it, his worst nightmare would be coming true today. We all know he doesn’t. After he spent his time lying to the entire country about his staged hate crime hoax, the Nigerian brothers involved had not told their side of the story and they just dropped the hammer.
Daily Wire reports, for the first time, the two Nigerian brothers who say they were paid by actor Jussie Smollett to stage an attack on him in January 2019 are speaking out about the scandal. The incident sparked an outcry from the political Left, including Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.
Despite paying $3,500 to Abimbola and Olabinjo Osundairo, Smollett has never admitted that the attack, in which he claimed white supremacists were involved, was a hoax.
After being in jail for almost two days, the brothers said the attack was a hoax. In December 2021, Smollett was convicted of five felony counts of disorderly conduct. He was sentenced to 150 days in county jail in March 2022, but only spent six days behind bars after an appeal.
The Daily Mail reported, one of the brothers stated, “He wanted to be the poster child for activism.” Added, “He wanted to be the hero for gay people, for black people.”
The comments were made as part of a new documentary on Fox Nation called “Jussie Smollett: Anatomy of a Hoax.”
Let’s TAKE A LOOK at a portion of the documentary
Grab some popcorn and prepare yourselves for this LIVE re-enactment.
The brothers claim they were friends of Smollett. According to Abimbola, Smollett would ask him to help him obtain marijuana and paraphernalia. Since he isn’t from Chicago, he asked me to keep a low profile. He didn’t want the drug dealer’s number. He wanted me to act as the middleman and obtain the drugs on his behalf.”
Clearly Smollett wanted to see if he could produce and direct his own little series and the answer is no. Most good directors sell the story and this was not bought by anyone. Perhaps Smollett should have stuck to acting, he may have had a better shot there and not completely destroy his career by trying to identify as a director.
