CLAIM: Smollett attorney: Attackers may have been in whiteface

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by

Jussie Smollett’s attorney said on NBC’s “Today” show that the two Nigerian brothers who say they were paid by the “Empire” actor to attack him may have been in whiteface.

“He only saw one of the attackers. One of them he didn’t see. He saw one through a ski mask,” Tina Glandian told NBC’s Savannah Guthrie. “Again, he could not see their body. Everything was covered, and he had a full ski mask on except the area around the eyes.”

The article goes on to state the following:

“He did tell police … from what we saw, he thought it was pale skin or white or pale skin, was I think what he said,” she continued. “And that’s why he initially did have a hard time.”

Glandian said while she was “looking up the brothers,” she found a skit of one them in whiteface playing “The Joker” from the “Batman” series of comics and movies.

“Obviously, you can disguise that. You can put makeup on,” Glandian said. “There is, interestingly enough, a video. You know, I think police had minimal investigation in this case, it took me only five minutes to Google. You know, I was looking up the brothers, and one of the videos that showed up actually was of the brothers in whiteface doing a joker monologue with white makeup on him. So, it’s not implausible.”
