Multiple Sources: When "Jussie" Smollet Didn't Get a Big Enough Media Reaction From His Fake "MAGA" Hate Mail, He Escalated Into Staging the Fake Attack

Demented attention whore.

"Empire" actor Jussie Smollett, upset after a racist letter sent to the sho'ís studio didnít get a "bigger reaction," is suspected of paying two men to attack him a week later, according to multiple sources with direct knowledge of the investigation.

"When the letter didn't get enough attention, he concocted the staged attack," a source told CBS 2 Investigator Brad Edwards. Other sources corroborated that information.

If this report is correct, and cops found the magazine out of which the words of the "threatening letter" had been cut, that's pretty much game over.

Though Jussie Smollet can claim the brothers did it without his knowledge. Kind of hard to explain why he ID'd them as white, though, and why he didn't recognize his friends.

De Mar spoke on the phone exclusively with the Osundairo brothers Monday afternoon. In a joint statement, they said: "We are not racist. We are not homophobic, and we are not anti-Trump. We were born and raised in Chicago and are American citizens."

Smollett received a letter containing a white powder Jan. 22. The letter was mailed to Chicago's Cinespace Studios, where the show "Empire" is filmed. The letter prompted a HAZMAT response. CPD says the "white substance" was later determined to be aspirin.

The note was crafted with letters apparently cut out from magazines to form words. The pieced-together message contained racial and homophobic threats directed at Smollett. A magazine is one of the pieces of evidence retrieved from the brotherís home last week during a search conducted by CPD. Investigators also recovered a book of stamps.

Was this all a viral marketing hoax to promote the "anti-lynching bill" Kamala Harris was using to get herself attention?
