The Nigerian brothers, Ola and Abel Osundairo who were allegedly involved in staging an attack on actor Jussie Smollett outside his Streeterville apartment building last month have expressed their remorese over the issue.
According to CBS, the brothers spoke through their attorney, who said:
“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.”
Smollett was released from the Cook County Jail last week after posting bond. He is charged with a felony for filing a false police report.
The actor will be back in court March 14.
