The Osundario brothers reenact the 2019 alleged staged attack against Jussie Smollett.
In a new documentary, the brothers say they were hired by Smollett and paid $3,500 to attack him in what is said to be a staged hate crime. The brothers say they met up with Jussie at 2AM in Chicago, and “executed” the attack.
Th detail the full event including yelling the racial slurs that Jussie prompted them to say. They also explain that Jussie told them to leave their phones at home as he didn’t want them to “lose” their phones.
We previously reported that Jussie is appealing his 150-day jail sentence after being found guilty in 2021.
According to CNN, attorneys for the actor appealed the conviction and are requesting a new trial. “In the present case, instances of prosecutorial misconduct were clear and egregious,” the document stated. “Mr. Smollett’s constitutional rights to due process and to a fair trial were denied by prosecutorial misconduct including allegations that a defense witness was pressured to change his statement…and shifting the burden during closing arguments.”
Smollett’s team argues that his sentence is too harsh. Back in 2019, the actor was reportedly attacked by two men verbally and physically in Chicago. Smollett alleged that the men put a noose around his neck and poured bleach on him.
He was sentenced to 30 months of felony probation and 150 days in jail in March 2022.
