Acquitted suspected murderer O.J. Simpson allegedly threatened a man running a parody account of the disgraced football star, video evidence suggests. "I WILL FIND YOUR ASS AND CUT YOU," Simpson's official account allegedly posted in a direct message to the man running the mock account, @KillerOJSimpson. The account also sent 16 knife emojis and promised, "You next."
“Man, you would never guess who the hell just messaged me on Twitter in a DM. Look at this s***. O.J. Simpson," the parody account operator said in a video showcasing the ominous tweets.
“Delete this account of I will have my lawyer remove it for false missleading [sic] content,” a message allegedly from Simpson said.
“And if I don’t? You gonna stab me too? In reality I ain’t lying..You, me and millions know the truth. You Trippin’ over a parody account lol Welcome to twitter bruh,” @KillerOJSimpson responded.
“Like I said, delete this ‘Parody’ account as you call it or face serious consequences by me. I’ll find your a** one way or another so don’t mess with me. I got nothing to lose. Grow up!” a response allegedly from Simpson said.
After the parodist sent Simpson a thumbs-up and a knife emoji, Simpson, who was acquitted in 1994 of stabbing ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman to death, replied with a knife emoji of his own.
“Look what his ass sent me! Like, for real dude? That’s crazy!” the stunned parodist said on video.
In a subsequent video post showcasing more messages, Simpson’s account seemingly scolded and threatened @KillerOJSimpson for posting a video of Simpson’s with edited-in screams of “Police! Help!” in the background.
“Think I’m playing motherf***er … Seen that video you posted about me. You think I’m playing? Tired of all your bulls***. I WILL FIND YOUR ASS AND CUT YOU — Don’t believe me? Just watch and see b****,” the Simpson account allegedly said.
“Dude there are others that literally have more followers than me and more convincing than mine. LMAO You gonna cut me? Awesome. Is that what you said to Nicole?” asked the parodist.
The video shows a Simpson reply of 16 knife emojis and the words, “You next.”
“You just wait, I’m gonna blast your ass all over twitter,” a response said.
In the videos, the parodist showed the messages and the corresponding account with the handle, @TheRealOJ32; you can see the account, on Monday, had some 600,000-plus followers. As of Wednesday, the Simpson account has 744,000-plus followers.
After the wild messages went viral, questions concerning their veracity popped up online. On Wednesday morning, the man running the parody account posted a video to "prove" his direct messages were from the official O.J. Simpson account (@TheRealOJ32) confirmed to be real by Simpson lawyer Malcolm LaVergne, last week:
According to the New York Post, Nevada Department of Public Safety spokeswoman Kim Smith said that the Division of Parole and Probation “takes threats or acts of violence against public safety very seriously and is looking into the alleged complaints,” noting that Simpson is still on parole for an armed robbery in a Las Vegas hotel room.
“If there is an alleged violation, an investigation will be conducted and appropriate actions will be taken by the Division and the Parole Board,” Smith added.
