Isn’t it amazing how a little thing like psychotically butchering two people with the brutality of a wild animal completely changes your life? For whatever reason, grabbing a knife and nearly decapitating your ex-wife just seems to stick in peoples’ minds and you never live it down.
Take O.J. Simpson for example. O.J. Simpson did EXACTLY that back in the early 1990s and people just won’t let it go! He tried everything possible to clean up his image and rebrand – even going as far as to invent wacky comedy bits based on the murders…
Sadly, the bit failed to garner the thunderous laughter and joy that O.J. had anticipated. He was watching a lot of Saturday Night Live at the time and was SURE he could pull it off, but writing comedy is tough – especially comedy based on double homicides!
But if at first you don’t succeed, stab, stab again! So O.J. thought to himself, “Hey, I like books and I know my ABCs like a mother fu****! I’ll be an author!
Unfortunately, O.J. chose the murder of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman as the subject matter for his first novel. He’d hoped Oprah would choose it for her “book of the month” club, but producers for her show told the Juice that his “fictional” novel just didn’t convey the kind of uplifting and heartwarming message they were looking for.
People also felt the book came across as a written confession rather than a novel. Something about the killer in O.J.’s “purely hypothetical” tale of action/adventure being named “O.J. Simpson” made it difficult for readers to suspend disbelief and emerge themselves in the plot. Calling the book “If I Did It” didn’t help either.
Fortunately for O.J., he’s a narcissistic sociopath and has learned over the years to let public criticism roll off his back.
That’s a good thing because every damn time O.J. articulates his thoughts and feelings on social media about current events, people go right for the jugular (O.J.’s preferred area of incision) and bring it back to slaughtering Nicole and Ron.
Most recently, O.J. decided to weigh in on politics in sports.

And as usual, the brilliant trolling minds of Twitter went to town on the juice.
To celebrate this grand event in social media excellence, Hammer and Nigel invited WIBC’s own Stan Lehr to read some of the guys’ favorite replies to O.J.’s unsolicited “Talking Points” memo of the day.
