The two Nigerian brothers hired by Chicago actor Jussie Smollett to stage a hoax hate crime against him are speaking out- and pursuing a lawsuit against Smollett’s lawyers for defamation.
The Osundairo brothers, who had previously worked with Smollett as film extras and personal trainers, are leaving no doubt that the actor orchestrated the entire event for publicity from the beginning. They’ve filed a lawsuit in federal court stating as such, describing Smollett as having “entirely conceived and directed the hoax.”
New information about the hoax is revealed in the court filing, including the brothers’ account that Smollett instructed them on a specific location and told them to include a noose. Smollett’s motivation in staging the hoax was pure publicity, with the Osundairo brothers describing him as someone who “wanted his employer and the public to notice and appreciate him as a successful Black, openly gay actor.”
Smollett’s lawyers, Mark Geragos and Tina Glandian, had accused the brothers of conducting the act without direction from Smollett in numerous media appearances, despite overwhelming evidence such as previous financial transaction connecting them to Smollett. Apparently we’re meant to believe that the two Nigerian immigrants simply decided to attack the actor who paid them for personal training in a racist ‘MAGA’ attack.
Smollett escaped the criminal charges he originally faced for the hoax under circumstances many are describing as dubious or even corrupt. Chicago Police have expressed indignation about the manner in which Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx dismissed the prosecution of Smollett, simply letting him off the hook for performing a few hours of community services. No new information establishing Smollett’s innocence played a role in the decision to drop charges against the Empire actor.
The Osundairo brother’s lawsuit will likely represent the closest Smollett’s hoax will ever get to formal adjudication in a legal setting, and Big League Politics will continue to monitor for new developments.

HMM: Actress Rosario Dawson Comes Out as Lesbian Just One Month After She ‘Dated’ Cory Booker
Was she his beard?
Actress Rosario Dawson has officially come out as lesbian, just a month after “dating” Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) during his dismal presidential campaign.
“People kept saying that I [came out]… I didn’t do that,” she said during a recent interview with Bustle. “I mean, it’s not inaccurate, but I never did come out come out. I mean, I guess I am now.”
Dawson claims she has only been in relationships with men up until this point, so she didn’t feel comfortable coming out of the closet officially until now.
“I’ve never had a relationship in that space, so it’s never felt like an authentic calling to me,” she said.
She said that her time with Booker forced her to be introspective and discover the truth about her sexuality, which made her comfortable about coming out as a lesbian.
“It’s the first time I felt like I had to be responsible about my choice of love, which is a challenging thing to do,” Dawson said. “If you fall in love, you fall in love. But there’s another aspect I had to consider: what this meant in [putting] a microscope on my family and particularly on my daughter.”
Just last month, Dawson was still keeping up the facade with Booker after he announced that he suspended his presidential campaign.
“Cory, you continue to inspire me everyday,” Dawson tweeted at Booker after he announced his campaign was finished. “On this journey you and your remarkable team have represented the best in us and I know you will continue to. Thank you. I see you. I love you.”
Dawson and Booker began their relationship in early 2019 conveniently before presidential primary season was scheduled to begin, which fueled rumors that Dawson was Booker’s “beard,” a slang term for a woman who poses as a phony girlfriend or wife for a closeted homosexual. She kept awkwardly professing her love for Booker as “beard” rumors were persisting wildly over the internet and social media.
“I’m in love! I am absolutely in love, and it is so exciting,” Dawson said of Booker last year.
“Look, both of us, you know, we’ve had relationships,” Booker said of his lesbian Hollywood girlfriend, “but I’m not sure if I’ve ever fully given myself over to a relationship as much as I have with her and allowed myself to be as vulnerable.”
“I mean, gosh, that night we talked for hours and hours,” he added. “I had trouble asking for her phone number… I think I said something really stupid like, ‘Uh, how would I get in touch with you?’ And she mercifully said something like, ‘Oh, you want my phone number?’ And my insides were like, ‘Hell, yeah!'”
Twitter users were not convinced by the show that the supposed lovers were putting on.
How much money are they paying Rosario Dawson to be Corey Booker's beard? Any guesses?

Rosario Dawson is pretty much a professional beard. Enough said.
And this is not a putdown of Cory Booker, as I'm a gay man myself. I want him to come out. He shouldn't have to hide.

Rosario Dawson is taking one for the team. Pretending to be Cory Booker's girlfriend. In old Hollywood these women were called Beards.

Rosario Dawson and Cory Booker are one of the least convincing I’ve ever seen. I don’t get it, he could’ve at chosen a beard he has chemistry with
— Alex (@XandryNicole) October 10, 2019
Idk, getting Rosario Dawson to be his beard is pretty impressive..
— 9Circles (@9Circles9) October 16, 2019
Rosario Dawson with Cory Booker is a publicity thing nothing more. Dare I say she's his beard. When the election is over they'll mysteriously "part ways"

The fact that Dawson has come out as a lesbian, and presumably ended her reported relationship with Booker, shortly after the end of his presidential campaign will only add additional fuel to the rumors that have plagued Booker for decades.
