Jussie Smollett's hoaxers-for-hire Abimbola "Bola" and Olabinjo "Ola" Osundairo are speaking to the media for the first time since helping the "Empire" actor stage his hate crime in the early morning hours of a snowy January day in 2019.
"Everyone immediately thought ‘This is what Trump’s America is like," New York Post national correspondent Gabrielle Fonrouge said of the "hate crime" in the newly-released multi-part Fox Nation special, "Anatomy of a Hoax."
"You had people in MAGA hats chasing after a Black man in the night, tying a rope around his neck calling him racist slurs, calling him homophobic slurs," she added.
Fact, however, proved nothing about Smollett's story was true. So what really happened that night?
