Dan Bongino: The Nigerian brothers involved in the Jussie Smollett case have filed a defamation lawsuit against the actor’s attorney, Mark Geragos.
According to Fox News, Abel and Ola Osundairo’s suit “alleges that Geragos and his firm continued to say publicly in widely reported statements that the brothers ‘led a criminally homophobic, racist and violent attack against Mr. Smollett,’ even though they knew that wasn’t true.”
The brothers released a statement through their attorneys slamming the lies they say are destroying their character and reputation.
“We have sat back and watched lie after lie being fabricated about us in the media, only so one big lie can continue to have life,” reads the statement. “These lies are destroying our character and our reputation in our personal and professional lives. Those who know us personally know that we don’t have hate for anyone. That is not who we are. We try to spread as much love and positivity with whoever we come into contact with. We will no longer sit back and allow these lies to continue.” more here
