A former NFL star known for being charged with and acquitted of the murders of his ex-wife and her friend, opened a Twitter account Saturday to let the world know that he plans to “set the record straight.”
“Coming Soon!!!” O.J. Simpson Tweeted Saturday, attaching a video.

“Hey Twitter world, this is yours truly, coming soon to Twitter,” Simpson said in the video. “You’ll get to read all my thoughts and opinions on just about everything. Now there’s a lot of fake O.J. accounts out there, so this one, @TheRealOJ32 is the only official one. It should be a lot fun. I got some gettin’ even to do. God bless, and take care.”
In a video posted later Saturday, Simpson continued his preview.
“Hey Twitter world,” he said. “You know, for years people have been able to say whatever they want to say about me with no accountability. But now I get to challenge a lot of that B.S. 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, for my fellow fathers out there, happy Father’s Day. God bless.”
Thanks to all my new followers. Love learning how to use Twitter. pic.twitter.com/J4JnN59yKl

Simpson, nicknamed “The Juice,” first captivated the nation on the football field. His life took a dramatic turn in 1994 when he was accused of killing his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ron Goldman. Days later, he led police on a wild chase through the streets of Los Angeles in his infamous white Ford Bronco SUV. He was eventually acquitted of the murder charges in a trial that was closely scrutinized by the media and the American public.
In 2007, Simpson was arrested and charged with criminal conspiracy, kidnapping, assault, robbery, and using a deadly weapon after he and three men allegedly robbed a Las Vegas store to obtain sports memorabilia. He was convicted on all charges in 2008, and sentenced to 33 years in prison with the possibility of parole in nine years. In 2017, that parole was granted, and Simpson was released from prison.

Rapper Lil Wayne Breaks the Silence on George Floyd’s Death
On May 29, 2020, Lil Wayne commented on the death of George Floyd.
The controversial death involved Minneapolis Police Department officer Derek Chauvin placing his knee on Floyd’s neck as he was handcuffed on the ground.
“I think when we see these situations, I think we also have to understand that we have to get very specific. … And what I mean by that is we have to stop viewing it with such a broad view, meaning we have to stop placing the blame on the whole force and the whole everybody or a certain race or everybody with a badge,” Wayne remarked during an IG Live chat with rapper Fat Joe.
Wayne added: “We have to actually get into who that person is. And if we want to place the blame on anybody, it should be ourselves for not doing more than what we think we’re doing.”
On top of that, the New Orleans rapper explained why he doesn’t always go public on these political issues.
“What else am I gonna do after that?” Wayne said to Fat Joe. “Some people put a tweet out and they think they did something. Some people wear a shirt and they think they did something. What you gonna do after that? Did you actually help the person? Did you actually help the family? Did you actually go out there and do something? So, if I ain’t about to do all that, then I ain’t about to do nothing. I’ll pray for ya.”
Wayne shared more of his thoughts regarding how people should process information during times of controversy.
“It’s actually learning about it,” Wayne commented. “What we need to do is we need to learn about it more. If we wanna scream about something, know what we’re screaming about. If we wanna protest about something, know what we’re protesting about. Because if we wanna get into it, there’s a bunch of facts that we think we know that we don’t know. … We scream about things that, sometimes, they really ain’t true.”
Wayne and Joe’s full discussion can be viewed below:
Riots have spread to other cities across the U.S., which included Minneapolis, where Floyd was killed. On May 29, Derek Chauvin received charges of murder and manslaughter in the killing of Floyd.
Derek Chauvin officially charged in death of #GeorgeFloyd with third-degree murder and manslaughter.
