O.J. Simpson joins Twitter

 

Bizpac Review: O.J. Simpson’s Twitter debut included a viral video and immediate backlash for its poor timing.

With the username @TheRealOJ32, the former NFL player created his account Friday with a location listed as Las Vegas, Nevada and a video in which he declared he’s “got a little getting even to do.”

“If you don’t see it here, I didn’t say it,” the bio on the 71-year-old’s account page stated with a video posted and pinned to the top of his profile.

“Hey Twitter world, this is yours truly and I’m coming soon to Twitter,” Simpson said “You get to read all my thoughts and opinions on just about everything.”

And while the video has garnered nearly four million views since it was posted Friday morning, the timing of Simpson’s social media debut rubbed many the wrong way, coming hours after the 25th anniversary of his ex-wife’s murder.

Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ron Goldman were stabbed to death in 1994 outside her Los Angeles home, sparking a history-making murder investigation with Simpson as the prime suspect. He grabbed national attention in a white Ford Bronco as he drove avoiding police before surrendering on the two murder charges for which he was later acquitted.

Although Simpson avoided jail time for the murders, being found not guilty in October 1995, he was sentenced to 33 years in prison for armed robbery and kidnapping charges in 2007. He was released after nearly a decade in prison on October 1. 2017.

“It should be a lot of fun. I’ve got a little getting even to do,” Simpson said in the video he posted Friday. The account page features a photo of the NFL Hall of Famer in a suit and the banner photo is an old picture of Simpson’s Buffalo Bills No. 32 jersey.

Simpson’s attorney, Malcolm LaVergne, confirmed to CNN that the account belonged the Simpson.

“Mr. Simpson is the most positive person I’ve ever met,” LaVergne told CNN.  MORE

  1. I think the OJ trial opened a lot of eyes to the corrupt “justice” system in America and it has only grown worse since then. Way worse.

  3. Very appropriate to open a twitter account 25 years to the week of the deaths of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman.

    What a way to celebrate a silver anniversary.

  4. The victims weren’t stabbed, they were chopped to death.
    Very, very graphic article:

    “Only in the last ten years or so has the media felt free enough to portray the crime as one OJ really did commit and got away with — even though Whites who knew the evidence back then already fully believed OJ did it.”

  5. How does he have time for Twitter?

    I thought he was hunting down the ‘real killers’?

  6. His scumbag lawyer referred to the savage murders by OJ as “that LA thing”?! I hope people don’t let up on OJ and that vicious “LA thing” he committed.
