OJ Simpson Shows off Las Vegas Home, Gets Blasted for Democratic Debate Remarks
OJ Simpson's latest clip on Twitter reveals glimpses on his Las Vegas home as he watches the television coverage of the Democratic presidential debates. Fans questioned his comments on the debate without a permit to vote.
OJ Simpson has definitely been drawing attention to his new Twitter account but not in the way he hoped it would. While he admitted using the social media presence as a means to clear his name, it seems all it has done so far is to invite more negativity his way.
Thanks to all my new followers. Love learning how to use Twitter. pic.twitter.com/J4JnN59yKl— O.J. Simpson (@TheRealOJ32) June 16, 2019
FANS QUESTION HIS COMMENTS ABOUT THE DEMOCRATIC DEBATES
For instance, he recently showcased his new home in a video clip while watching the Democratic presidential debate. And instead of impressing followers with his Las Vegas abode, he got a dressing down over commenting about the ongoing debates.
Before revealing glimpses of his sanctuary, OJ informed his viewers that he was about to watch the debate on television.
“Sitting at my house, waiting to watch this debate to hear a bunch of people who think they’re capable of running our country," he said.
"It should be interesting ’cause to be honest, I don’t know most of these guys. But interested to hear what they have to say," he added.
"Just a stab in the dark here but are ex-cons allowed to vote in your state?"

And while he encouraged Americans to watch the show, there were some who were watching him with raised eyebrows. One Twitter user pointed out to him the fact that he had no business making comments about candidates.
"Just a stab in the dark here but are ex-cons allowed to vote in your state?" the commenter wrote.
“Interesting to see which ones will make the cut. It’s gonna be a bloodbath," another wrote, taking a stab at the former NFL player who was accused of the gruesome murder of his wife, Nicole Simpson and her boyfriend more than two decades ago in 1994. He was eventually acquitted the following year but went to prison years later for another crime. In 2007, he was found guilty of armed robbery and kidnapping and was sentenced to 33 years. He was released after nine years in 2017.
Next to his chair, The Blast sighted a framed image resembling a 1994 family photo of him, Nicole and their children. The image was blurred but it’s possible the photo was the one taken during the “Naked Gun 33 1/3” premiere, barely three months before Nicole’s murder.

OJ SHARES A GLIMPSE OF HIS LAS VEGAS HOME
Two years after his nighttime release, OJ moved into his home in Las Vegas to start a new life. In his clip, he gave his fans a quick look of the house. He panned around his living room where some of his trophies were on display as well as a birthday card.
Next to his chair, The Blast sighted a framed image resembling a 1994 family photo of him, Nicole and their children. The image was blurred but it’s possible the photo was the one taken during the “Naked Gun 33 1/3” premiere, barely three months before Nicole’s murder. The publication suggests this and even shares a copy of that photo.
OJ revealed he stayed in the pop legend’s home in Neverland during a time when his own home was being stormed by the media.
Someone yesterday asked me what the best advice I ever got was. My mother said to me before she passed “Orenthal, you can’t let people & mean speech set you further away from G-D.” That was the best advice I ever got and BTW, she was the only who called me Orenthal.— O.J.

OJ LAUNCHES TWITTER ACCOUNT
OJ launched his Twitter account earlier in June and even revealed his plans for coming out with one. According to the former convict, it was his way of sharing his thoughts and opinions and to get “a little getting even.”
Last week, he shared another video in memory of the late Michael Jackson on his 10th year death anniversary. OJ revealed he stayed in the pop legend’s home in Neverland during a time when his own home was being stormed by the media. He said it was Michael who extended the invitation to him and his children loved it.
"My family and I have moved on to what we call the 'no negative zone.' We focus on the positives."

OJ now lives states away from his kids who live in Florida but he has been visiting them. The 72-year-old now considers Las Vegas his new home where he plays golf almost every day. As for the events in his past including his wife's murder, he told Inside Edition, he never wanted to "revisit" that topic again. "My family and I have moved on to what we call the 'no negative zone.' We focus on the positives," he said.
