As the details of Jussie Smollett's criminal case continues to surface, yesterday (Feb. 28) the Osundairo brothers who were hired by the singer have issued a public apology stating that they feel "tremendous regret" over the situation.
The brothers Abimbola "Abel" and Olabinjo "Ola" Osundairo's attorney have released a statement to CBS Chicago. Their attorney stated, "My clients have tremendous regret over their involvement in this situation, and they understand how it has impacted people across the nation, particularly minority communities and especially those who have been victims of hate crimes themselves."
On Jan. 29th Jussie Smollett claimed that he was the victim of a homophobic and racist attack during a night out in Chicago. After further investigation Chicago PD believe that the star actually staged his own attack, and hired the brothers to partake in the attack. The Chicago PD has brought in evidence of text messages between Smollett and the Osundario brothers to prove that the attack was staged.
