The truth about Jussie Smollett and his infamous alleged attack
A hateful crime attack by a celebrity has recently caught attention. It is actor-singer Jussie Smollett. Faced with this incident, there is much different information given.
On Monday, February 18, 2019, CBS 2 of Chicago reported some important information. They thought that there was a motivation. In the context of the incident, they set out a lot of theories about the Empire star, who played Jamal Lyon in the cult series FOX. He may have involved settling the case. It all started after he received a discrimination letter. The content of the discrimination letter took place at the Film School’s Cinespace last month.
According to another source to clarify this issue, they wrote: “The actor set up the staged attack.” Not stopping there, Insiders continue to issue a controversial announcement. They claim that Smollett dismayed after the letter did not resonate and “responded more”.
The attack may relate to Politics issue
So what exactly is the truth about this controversial letter? A reliable source of information spoke up. The actor received the letter with a gun pointing at a stick hanging from a tree on January 22, 2019. Attached is white chalk. That’s aspirin in powder form. Also, a special thing related to politics. It is precisely the slogan “MAGA” of President Donald Trump written on the envelope. The content of the message clearly wrote. It includes letters cut from a magazine. “Black f * g, get died!”

Per Nicki Swift, this attack information is real. Smollett – a 36-year-old man attacked by two men in Chicago, Ill. They made an attack plan in the early morning of January 29, 2019. And it is worth noting that the men in that question all have one thing in common. They all had racist and homophobic statements about a television star. And their actions were like pouring a chemical that supposed to be bleach on him. After that, they put a noose around his neck. During the process of leaving the scene, they repeatedly said the slogan: “This is MAGA country.” Shortly after the end of the preliminary investigation, Smollett sought medical treatment at the Northwest Memorial. And Windy City authorities investigated the incident harshly. So they claim it as a hateful crime.
After a long period of silence, Smollett had detailed explanations. For his part, he participated in an interview program with Essence on February 1. Here, Smollett made specific statements: “I’m fine. Let’s start the program. And maybe you don’t believe it, but my soul is stronger than my body.” He also posted the status line with the same content in the timeline. After that, Smollett expressed his gratitude for these supporters. He moved because they had “always loved and supported him actively in all cases”. Besides, Smollett asserted that he was always very realistic and “100% consistent.” Especially when working with police on this serious issue.
At the end of the interview, Smollett presented his profound concept. “I am really very sad and painful. But most importantly, I am still aware of my responsibility. It is the leading role with love. It’s all my thoughts. I really can’t get rid of them from my mind.”
The investigation’s result
After an intense investigation, two potential suspects in the main case were Ola and Abel Osillacro. The local police conducted detention on February 13, the exact source of information from CBS Chicago. However, a piece of new evidence discovered during their interrogations. This detail has led authorities to change direction in the investigation over the weekend. This event has originated for a hoax and online backlash later.
Via the news outlets, the brothers Osillacro were free without charge. The police told Chicago PD about the secret after the event. They said Smollett paid $ 3,500 to set up the scandal. Moreover, the Osillacro brothers mentioned their three rehearsals before the incident. (Quote from TMZ). And in the agreement, after their cousins finished their trip to Nigeria, they will receive additional remuneration. That’s about $ 500 from Smollett (a source from CBS 2).
It didn’t stop there when in a public interview, the Ola brothers confirmed. “We are not racist. At the same time, Abel Osillacro and I are not homophobic. And of course, we always support Trump.” CBS Chicago has released Ola and Abel Osillacro’s statement widely on Monday, February 18. “We have US citizenship.”
Smollett’s reaction to the conclusion of the incident
On Smollett’s side, Jussie Smollett denied these claims. In an interview with CNN, he completely dismissed this information. However, he did not show up but passed on his lawyers on Saturday, February 16. The lawyer affirmed: “Jussie Smollet is the victim of a hate crime. And he cooperated actively. Therefore, he is extremely angry about the recent false information. It’s funny that the culprit is the individual he is familiar with. Further by declaring there is no conclusive evidence. The perpetrators accuse Jussie of playing a role in his own attack. And in my opinion, there is nothing other than the truth of my client. At the same time, any other statement is a lie.”
Ignoring those claims, it should note that the Chicago PD still has no official confirmation. At this point, they did not support and did not deny the ongoing speculation about an attack. So what could have staged in the context of an ongoing investigation?
Smollett’s role has declined because of this adverse news. In an upcoming episode of Empire, his character greatly decreases between these rumors. (Quote from TMZ). On Tuesday, February 19, some scenes of the actor in an episode are still going on. In addition, his “big music” project has a detailed script. However, Smollett will return to set up this weekend. His first job was to shoot a handful of raiding scenes (according to the Rags).
