OJ Simpson Is Officially On Twitter

Share

It appears OJ Simpson can now be counted among those who tweet, and his very first (and so far only) post has already raised eyebrows. "Simpson" to trending topics and furthering the account's reach. It should be a lot of fun, I've got a little getting even to do, so God bless. Oh, he also said he's "got a little gettin' even to do" - a statement probably best left unuttered by a man once accused - and acquitted! - of murder.

Wednesday marked 25 years since the killing of Simpson's ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ron Goldman.

Simpson's televised "trial of the century" became a national obsession in the 1990s, fraught with issues of racism, police misconduct, celebrity and domestic violence. Social media users expressed shock and mystification shortly after the video's release, eventually pushing "O.J". In 1997, a civil suit filed by the victims' families found the disgraced football player responsible for the wrongful deaths of both Brown and Goldman. "It never goes away".

Simpson posted a video saying, "There's a lot of fake O.J. accounts out there".

Then again, Simpson has an entirely different perspective on evidence than most of us.

He was later convicted of robbery and kidnapping for an incident where he tried to steal sports memorabilia.
