The greatest television show ever created. Well, excepting Firefly, of course.
In the new doc “Anatomy of a Hoax” The Jussie Smollett faked story:
The Osundairo Brother detail what really was Jussie’s plan and why.

As Ace notes, “Apparently the Osundairo brothers are amusing hosts and naturals on camera.” They are indeed—quite personable, glib, and just damned funny as all hell, as the above vid amply demonstrates. Mo’ bettah:
Brothers in Jussie Smollett hoax break silence, say actor wanted to be ‘poster child for activism’
Abimbola “Bola” and Olabinjo “Ola” Osundairo speak to media for the first time in ‘Jussie Smollett: Anatomy of a Hoax,’ streaming now on Fox Nation
Early in the morning hours of a polar vortex in January 2019, FOX’s “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett claimed two White supremacist Trump supporters attacked him near his Chicago apartment in a racially-motivated hate crime that would soon incite outrage from activists and the media.
It’s the “hate crime” that dominated headlines, but facts proved none of it was true.
In December 2021, the now-40-year-old actor and singer was convicted of five felony counts of disorderly conduct. One year ago, he was sentenced in March 2022 to 150 days in county jail.
Forgive me for saying so, but ol’ Juisseh (hey, that’s the way I’ve always pronounced it, just ’cause I think it’s funnier that way, no other reason) being both black and a rump-ranger, I have a hard time picturing jail as any kind of real hardship for him. A deee-luxe vacation, a rest-cure, more like.
Yes, I know, I know, I’m a homophobic racist bigoted racist H8RRRR.
I DENOUNCE MYSELF…!!!
I DID mention the Osundairos are quite personable and funny, right? Why yes, I believe I did at that.
“You know Eddie Johnson [former Chicago Police Superintendent] said he could tell in the footage that you guys are Black, right?” an off-camera interviewer asked the brothers.
“Really?” Ola asked. “I feel like he’s just saying that… we were in character the whole time.”
“So you think you guys are believable White supremacists?” the interviewer pressed.
“One hundred percent! Look at me,” Bola laughed. Chicago Police released images of the incident shortly after it took place, but Johnson said the initially released image of two silhouettes walking shoulder-to-shoulder down the snowy Chicago street was not the best image they had at the time.
Watch the vid, read it all. Trust me, you’ll be glad you did.
Update! In comments, Aesop says: “Chapelle dealt with the whole incident better in 3½ minutes than the entire woketarded media did in 3½ months, and distilled that @$$hole’s entire career down to a single punchline.” And he’s right about that.
Many thanks for that gem of a find, Aesop.
