OJ Simpson Faces Heavy Backlash After Joining Twitter.

On Saturday, just days after the 25th anniversary of the murder of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and Ron Goldman — for which OJ went on trial and was ultimately acquitted in 1995 — the former football player took to the social media platform to announce his arrival.

“Hey Twitter world, this is yours truly,” OJ, 71, said in a clip on the platform on Friday. “Now, coming soon to Twitter, you’ll get to read all my thoughts and opinions on just about everything… It should be a lot of fun. I got a little getting even to do.”

The following day, he posted another clip of himself standing in a luxurious backyard where which he stated: “Hey Twitter world, you know, for years people have been able to say whatever they wanna say about me with no accountability. But now I get to challenge a lot of that BS and set the record straight. More importantly, I’ll be able to talk about everything especially sports, fantasy football, and even politics. But, for now, let me just say to my fellow fathers out there Happy Father’s Day. God bless.”

Thanks to all my new followers. Love learning how to use Twitter.

Soon after OJ posted his clips, Twitter exploded with memes and comments reacting to the polarizing figure’s arrival. Comedian Chelsea Handler soon wrote: “Let’s all take a moment to be happy OJ Simpson joined Twitter and not Trump’s cabinet. It’s the little things these days.”

“Oj simpson joining twitter the week of the 25th anniversary of nicole brown’s murder sure is, uh, something,” another user wrote. “Really disturbing to see that people are actually following OJ Simpson… why?” yet another chimed in.

One individual seemed to try and offer a response to this question: “To all the [people] asking ‘how could you follow a monster like oj simpson?!?’ I can only answer this: an unquenchable thirst for content.”
