OJ Simpson has recently launched a Twitter account and posted a few videos, one in which he said he has some “getting even to do.”
A U.S. civil court ordered Simpson to pay tens of millions of dollars over the wrongful deaths of his wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman. Simpson said he’s able to “challenge” what people have been saying about him.
“For years people have been able to say what they want to say about me, with no accountability,” said Simpson in one of his Twitter videos. “But now I get to challenge a lot of that BS and set the record straight.”
“It should be a lot of fun,” Simpson added, without much elaboration about what he meant.
Within hours of launch, Simpson’s official Twitter account gained about 500,000 followers. He pledged to share his thoughts and opinions on “just about everything” and said that he would discuss “sports, fantasy football and even politics.”
Following his October 2017 release from prison for robbery and kidnapping while trying to steal back some of his sports memorabilia in Las Vegas, Simpson has laid low and generally stayed out of the spotlight.
Simpson was famously acquitted of the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman, who were both stabbed to death in 1994.
In 1997, a civil jury found him liable for the wrongful deaths of the two individuals, and he was ordered to pay $33.5 million. Since then, Simpson has continued to plead his innocence in the two killings, and the murder case remains unsolved.
