Jussie Smollett’s Accomplices Set Actor Straight, Issue Public Apology for Roles in Fake Hate Crime Hoax

The two brothers who were paid by disgraced actor Jussie Smollett to orchestrate a fake hate crime have come clean to the American public with an apology.

Smollett has yet to apologize, admit to his crimes, or even finish his jail sentence.

The former “Empire” actor is trying to get a retrial in his case and hopes he’ll be able to get away without returning to jail.

Abimbola and Olabinjo Osundairo apologized for their role in the hoax and have blown the whistle on Smollett’s plans.

The Nigerian brothers said they agreed to Smollett’s devious plan because they thought the Hollywood star could help their careers.

Olabinjo said: “I just first want to apologize to everyone in the audience, the country, and anyone who might have been affected by this directly.

“When we were asked to partake in this, we really didn’t foresee the ramifications of what something like this could do to the country.”

The brothers’ attorney Gloria Rodriguez said:

“My immediate thought wasn’t, ‘Oh my God, this is a national spotlight case.’

“My immediate thought was, ‘Oh, my God, I have two innocent guys here that are being accused of doing this horrific hate crime.’

“My natural instinct really was to first, unlike a lot of the journalists that were out there reporting this, my instinct was to first get a handle on the facts.

“And that same night that I met them, I went by myself, had to cancel my plans with my wife and say, ‘I’ve got to go down to the scene of the crime.’

“And I looked around and I just remember thinking, it is dark, it is late out and there’s nobody out here.

“It’s super safe.

“It’s… this is ridiculous that this would happen.”

Smollett was sentenced to 150 days in jail and 30 months of probation over the incident.

However, he was released after only six days pending his appeal thanks to his friends in high places.
