OJ Simpson Allegedly Threatens Twitter Parody Account: ‘I Will... Cut You'
O.J Simpson recently joined the Twitter world, and he’s already causing trouble. According to the owner of a parody account that makes fun of the disgraced NFL star, OJ sent him a series of threats through direct messages—an action that, if confirmed, could violate the terms of his parole.
O.J Simpson opened his official Twitter account, @TheRealOJ32 on June 14. An odd date to make such a move considering that June 12 marked the 25th anniversary of the murders of Simpson’s ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her alleged lover, Ron Goldman.

“Coming soon to Twitter you’ll get to read all my thoughts and opinions on just about everything,” the accused killer said in the first clip shared to the account.
He also made sure to address the veracity of the account by saying: “Now there’s a lot of fake O.J accounts out there, so this one, @TheRealOJ32, is the only official one.”
STIRRING THE POT ON TWITTER
It seems like Simpson did some digging around the social media platform to find some of those fake accounts and he stumbled upon the user @KillerOJSimpson, a parody account that makes fun of OJ’s acquittal in the 1994 murders of his wife and Goldman.
Their profile pic is a curated photo of Simpson holding a knife and grinning like a maniac, and they seem to enjoy replying to Tweets with the knife emoji, a direct swab at the fact that Nicole Broan and Goldman were stabbed to death.

On June 17, @KillerOJSimpson shared a video recording his screen to show a series of messages he received from O.J’s alleged account.
“Man, you would never guess who the hell just messaged me on Twitter in a DM. Look at this s–t,” a man says behind the camera.
Simpson’s first message reads: “Delete this account or I will have my lawyer remove it for false, misleading content I didn't post.”
However, following with the parodic nature of the account, the owner sent a message refusing to do as asked, to which O.J allegedly replied:
“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.”
In response, the parody account sent a thumbs up and knife emoji.
Subsequentially, O.J also sent a knife emoji back.
A second video, shared one day later, shows that Simpson continued the conversation by stating that he had seen the first video, and added, “You think I'm playing? Tired of all your bulls**t. I WILL FIND YOUR A** AND CUT YOU — Don't believe me? Just watch and see b**h.”
The account also sent a string of 16 knife emojis and a somber message saying, “you next.”
“You just wait, I’m gonna blast your ass all over twitter…” O.J allegedly stated, and the parodist was up for the challenge saying, “And when you do I’ll be here.”
The video ends with a pending message from Simpson’s account, and according to @KillerOJSimpson, he has a third video that shows more of their exchange.
TRUTH OR HOAX?
However, there is no way to confirm the messages came from Simpson’s official Twitter because the account is not verified yet.
Some people believe the messages could be fake, and just a hoax to get the attention of people, considering that @KillerOJSimpson had 300 followers three days ago, and now it has over 3000 and counting.
OJ’S PAROLE IS ON THE LINE
Although Simpson was acquitted for the murder of his wife in 1994, he was found guilty in a wrongful death suit filed by Goldman’s family.
In 2008, Simpson was locked in jail for an armed robbery in Las Vegas. He was released in October 2017, and according to what Kim Smith, a spokeswoman for the Nevada Department of Public Safety, told the NY Post, he’s still on parole.

Smith explained that the Division of Parole and Probation “take threats or acts of violence against public safety very seriously and is looking into the alleged complaints.”
She also revealed that “If there is an alleged violation, an investigation will be conducted and the Division and the Parole Board will take appropriate actions.”
Neither O.J nor his lawyer has addressed the accusations to the media.
