OJ Simpson on Twitter 25 Years After Wife’s Murder, Says He’s ‘Got a Little Getting Even to Do’

By Tiffany Meier

On the 25th anniversary of his wife’s murder, O.J. Simpson has joined Twitter, saying he has “a little getting even to do.”

“Hey Twitter world, this is yours truly. Now coming soon to Twitter, you’ll get to read all my thoughts and opinions on just about everything,” the 71-year-old said in the video on Twitter.

“This should be a lot of fun,” he continued.

He finished off with: “I’ve got a little getting even to do. So God bless, take care.”

“If you don’t see it here, I didn’t say it,” his biography reads on his official Twitter account. He also put his location as Las Vegas, Nevada.

Simpson created his official account on Friday, June 14, with the username @TheRealOJ32—a reference to his jersey number from his NFL fame days.

His Twitter video had already been viewed nearly 5 million times at the time of this publication.

Several people took to the comments to express concern over Simpson saying he had “a little getting even to do.”

“‘I got a little getting even to do’ … OJ should be pretty killer on Twitter,” another commented.

25 Years Since the Trial of the Century

The previous day, June 13, marked the 25th anniversary of the 1994 double murders of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, as well as her friend, Ron Goldman.

Following their deaths, the nation was captivated as O.J. Simpson led the Los Angeles police on a two-hour high speed chase captured on television. O.J. Simpson eventually surrendered in the driveway of his home.

The following trial would be dubbed “The Trial of the Century.”

After nine months of proceedings, Simpson was found not guilty of the double murders of his former wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, or her friend Ron Goldman, who were both found stabbed outside her California house in 1994.

However, a civil jury later found him liable and ordered him to pay restitution to the families of the victims.
