Twitter Weighs In On O.J. Simpson's Hypothetical "Confession"


Sunday evening marked the highly-anticipated broadcast “O.J. Simpson: The Lost Confession?,” an interview dated back to 2006 in which O.J. Simpson details a hypothetical account how his involvement in the murder his ex-wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ron Goldman would have played out. The interview conducted by Judith Regan was a verbalized account the scenario laid out in Simpson’s book If I Did It.

While heralded as hypothetical, it was Simpson’s frequent use the first-person, vivid details the crime scene, and implication a hypothetical accomplice named Charlie that had many referring to this interview as a blatant confession. While many took to social media to relay this sentiment, other met it with explanations and conspiracy theories their own, supporting the not guilty verdict handed down in 1994 when O.J. was infamously acquitted the murders. 

Other disturbing admissions included O.J.’s revelation that he ten visited Nicole Brown’s grave to yell at it due to an anger he still felt toward his ex-wife, pinning her and Ron Goldman's deaths as the elements that, in turn, ruined his own life.

"I loved her, but I wasn't in love her. To some degree, I didn't really like her," Simpson admitted. "To some degree, I thought she was losing herself in many ways. Ron and Nicole were physically dead, and it's almost like they killed me. Who I was was attacked and murdered also in that short period time. To this day, it bugs me it seems people wanted me to be guilty—that really, really bothered me."
