Just when you thought this Jussie Smollett situation couldn’t get any more ridiculous, his lawyers are now claiming that it’s possible his attackers were wearing ‘whiteface’, and that’s why he mistook them for two racist, homophobic white guys.

More: Now Smollett’s attorney, Tina Glandian, is suggesting the Nigerian brothers may have worn “whiteface” on the night of the attack.
The police, she said, did “minimal investigation” and if they’d googled like she did, they would have found a video of them in a Joker getup. pic.twitter.com/G0AAXzol2v

Yep, Jussie Smollett thought these two Nigerian guys (who told police that Jussie paid them to stage the attack on him) were a couple of racist MAGA KKK-types:
Well I suppose it’s plausible that they were wearing whiteface… until you remember that they ADMITTED that Jussie PAID them to stage the attack! I mean holy crap what is going on here? How is this lawyer going on national TV and pushing this whiteface theory when everyone already knows that he faked the entire thing?
Jussie has also been ordered to pay $130,000 to cover the cost of the investigation as he “knowingly filed a false police report”. Which means the police are still saying he is guilty of faking a hate crime on himself, so then why have the charges against him been dropped?

We have our own theory why, but one thing’s for sure and that’s that something seriously fishy is going on here. We’ll have to see how it plays out but there’s no way this saga is over yet.
