25 years after the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman and nearly two years after being released from prison for being a fucking dumbass and setting fire to his first get out of jail free card (thanks in part to the dumbest collection of jurors ever assembled in a non-third world country) the most polarizing living figure in pop culture is back.
(Simpson has kept a low profile since his release from prison in October 2017, for robbery and kidnapping over an attempt to steal back some of his sports memorabilia from a Las Vegas hotel room.)
The Juice has come to twitter.
In a stunning turn of events, OJ has amassed nearly half a million followers in his first week on the platform. And who you might ask is he following?
Just 8 accounts at the moment, but they’re all gold.
Simpson made sure to follow his former team and serial losers the Buffalo Bills, as well as the Heisman Trophy he sold to pay his legal fees after the Goldman family took his sorry ass to civil court for (
allegedly) killing their son.
Simpson has dropped two videos since launching his latest PR campaign to satiate his narcism. His “followers” however, who are mostly present to watch how this latest train wreck plays out, have not disappointed by delivering cold wrath in less than 280 characters.
Some without characters at all; videos of his infamous low speed police chase where OJ threatened to off himself and photos of blood and police tape seemed to be enough.
OJ claims the real reason for his appearance on twitter is to “challenge the misinformation” about him. He also says he’s, “Got a little gettin’ even to do.” I wouldn’t want to be on this guy’s shit list. Oh well… let’s continue.
So how long until OJ starts sliding into the DM’s of former South Bundy Drive residents in an effort to find Nicole’s killer? We’ll keep an eye on the Juice’s twitter for you so you won’t have to.
The relatives of the two victims in the 1994 homicide have expressed disgust that OJ Simpson is able to live the way he does. Simpson was ordered to pay $33.5 million for the wrongful deaths of the Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman, but most of the judgment has not been paid.
