I guess that racist attacks like TV shows are better when they are rehearsed. He gave the brothers money to pick up some rope and two red hats to use in the attack. They rehearsed the attack, but that time would have better spent coming up with a believable story. Two white boys out and about at 2 in the morning? Smollett had to be bundled up since it was -19 outside, but they recognized him from a show they would never watch. His story made no sense from the moment he told it, and it didn’t take long for it to unravel.
Fox reported Saturday afternoon that Chicago police sources confirmed detectives were able to show that the Nigerian brothers who were “persons of interest” and questioned by police, bought the rope found around Jussie Smollett’s neck at Crafty Beaver Hardware the weekend of January 25th.
Jussie Smollett paid for the rope — The Nigerian brothers were paid $3,500 before leaving for Nigeria and were promised another $500 as soon as they returned back to the US.
It gets better…
According to sources, Jussie Smollett and the two Nigerian brothers rehearsed the MAGA attack.
Sources said one of the brothers held the rope and poured bleach while the other wore a plain red hat and yelled racist and homophobic slurs at Smollett, reported CBS Chicago.
Smollett also had the Nigerian brothers purchase two red ball caps from Uptown Beauty Supply to wear during the attack so they would appear to be Trump supporters.
It was reported Saturday night that the Chicago Police Department is no longer looking at ‘Empire’ star Jussie Smollett as a victim in his alleged assault — but rather an “active participant.”
