Jussie Smollet claimed that racist white people attacked him but it turned out that it was all planned.
He was a cast of a popular TV show Empire but his role in the show was being phased out, therefore he planned the attack to get attention.
Investigators also believed that he planned the attack on himself because he was unhappy with his salary.
Jussie was attacked in Chicago around 2 am in the morning. “They called me a faggot, they called me a n—er,” he said. “There’s no which way you cut it. I don’t need some MAGA hat as the cherry on some racist sundae.” – Jussie
He told the Chicago police that the attacker are white men and they said “Aren’t you that f***ot ‘Empire’ n*****? “You will die black f** . They put a rope around my neck, poured bleach on me and as they left they yelled. This is MAGA country.” – He added
Chicago Police took the case as a hate crime but they later discovered that it was a hoax. Jussie planned his own attack, he paid two Nigerian brothers Ola and Abel Osundairo to attack him and he blamed it on racist white men.
The video above shows Ola and Abel Osundairo buying the items they used in the attack at a convenient store. The brother fled to Nigeria after the attack but they were arrested at Chicago O’Hare Airport when they returned back to America.
They confessed that Empire actor Jussie Smollett hired them and he paid them for the job.
Jussie was charged with a felony for filling false claim and his bail was set at $100 k dollars.
