OJ Simpson, a man widely believed to be a double murderer who got off scot-free after his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ron Goldman, were butchered with a knife, has weighed in on the Will Smith debacle to say that he too wanted to “b-slap” a few people over time.
For those who’ve been hiding under a rock these past few days, Will Smith slapped Chris Rock in the head Sunday night during a live presentation of the Academy Awards show, after the comedian made a GI Jane 2 joke about the actor’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, who suffers from an auto-immune disease that causes hair loss.
“Keep my wife’s name out of your f*cking mouth!” Smith would scream twice, after returning to his seat — in a perfect capsulation of Hollywood values, Smith would receive a standing ovation minutes later after winning an Oscar for best actor, despite his violent outburst.
The man millions see as an unrepentant bloody killer felt compelled to post a video on Twitter about the incident.
“Hey, look, it was unfortunate. I think Will was wrong,” Simpson said, before commiserating with Smith.

“Look, I understood the feeling,” he said. “In my life, I’ve been through a lot of crap when I was raising two young kids and every comedian in the country had an O.J. routine, and don’t think I wouldn’t want to [b*tch] slap a couple of them, but you got to accept that it’s human.”
In spite of what many believe he likely got away with — the apparent murder of two fellow human beings — a 74-year-old OJ still sees himself as a victim.
“I know this,” Simpson said. “After what happened to me in Las Vegas, if I would have done that in front of a billion people watching around the world, they would have given me life without [parole]. I’m just saying.”
Simpson was convicted and sentenced to 33 years in prison after attempting to steal back at gunpoint memorabilia that he claimed belonged to him. In 2017, he was released on parole after just nine years for good behavior. Some things you just can’t make up.
Based on some of the responses to OJ’s take, America may have bigger problems than a confrontation between two fabulously wealthy A-list celebrities — then again, the two issues may very well be related.
Here’s a quick sampling of responses from Twitter:
I wonder if Ron and Nicole should start a podcast. Oh wait, they can’t because OJ killed them. One bad thing 30 years ago. SMH.
