Yeah, I know his name is actually Jussie Smollett, but Dave Chapelle’s version is so much funnier.
Anyhow, with Smollett’s trial for staging a fake hate crime finally underway, it certainly appears as if the 8th banana on TV’s “Empire” series is seriously coming off the rails.
As noted by reporter Kira Mautone of the Daily Caller;
The second of the two brothers, Olabinjo Osundairo, took the stand in Chicago on Thursday to testify on day four of the Jussie Smollett trial.
Olabinjo echoed the testimony of his brother, Abimbola Osundairo, claiming that Smollett requested help with the attack, and said he was taking the stand to simply, “Get the truth out of what really happened that night.”
Olabinjo recounted the memory of Smollett and his brother pulling up to his apartment to tell him about the staged attack. He claimed Smollett pulled him aside and asked, “Can I trust you?” to which Olabinjo responded, “Yes, of course, you can.”
Smollett allegedly proceeded to tell Olabinjo the plan surrounding the hate mail he’d received. Olabinjo claimed that Smollett had asked the two brothers to “yell out racial and homophobic slurs at him. He wanted us to say, ‘Aren’t you that Empire f*ggot n—-r?’” and “This is MAGA country.”
Ola: Smollett “said he would want us to yell out racial and homophobic slurs at him. He wanted us to say, ‘Aren’t you that Empire f—-t n—-r?” and “This is MAGA country.”
Q: And what did MAGA country mean?
A: “President Trump’s slogan. Make America Great Again.”
