He’s a real cut up.
For what seems like the first time since the 1994 release of “Naked Gun 33⅓: The Final Insult,” O.J. Simpson put on his comedy gloves and took a stab at a few jokes at now-suspended New Yorker writer Jeffrey Toobin after the writer, who once wrote a book about Simpson’s infamous murder trial after covering it for the magazine, was reportedly caught exposing himself during a Zoom meeting.
“Damn, Jeffrey Toobin. At least Pee-wee Herman was in an X-rated movie theater,” Simpson, who has reportedly never been caught in the act while doing something society generally frowns upon, said in a video posted on Twitter.
“I’m just saying.”
There’s no telling what happened in 1994 to make Simpson stop appearing in Hollywood comedies, but if this video is any indication, he hasn’t lost a step.
Simpson also once publicly apologized for committing an offense.
“I’ve spent nine years making no excuses about anything. I am sorry that things turned out the way they did. I had no intent to commit a crime,” he said at a 2017 parole hearing regarding a previous armed robbery conviction.
“I had some problems with fidelity in my life but pretty much got along with everybody.”
Toobin will be wise to heed these wise words and be similarly humble in the future and not turn to social media to gloat.
