Twitter Has Some Real Thoughts About O.J. Simpson Being Paroled
It wasn’t as big a deal as his 1995 trial, but O.J. Simpson was front and center again Thursday after he was granted parole.
The former football star, movie star and murder suspect, 70, is being given a second chance after he was granted parole for his role in a robbery. Unlike when he went to jail nearly a decade ago when social media was in its infancy, a now-omnipresent social media was quick to offer up plenty of hot takes on the Juice being allowed back on the streets. While some may be wondering what he’ll do once he’s no longer incarcerated, the Twittersphere was busy voicing its feelings on the one-time Heisman winner becoming a free man.
Some were amusing, some were pensive and some were angry. Take a look for yourself.
If I had a time machine I'd stop OJ from killing those ppl so that nobody would ever know what a Kardashian is. #OJSimpsonParole
