Will Smith Gets Support from Double Murderer OJ Simpson: “I understand the sentiment”


Will Smith has gotten support from former football star, ex con, and double murderer OJ Simpson on Twitter.

Simpson was found responsible for the deaths of his ex wife Nicole Brown, and Ronald Goldman, by a civil jury in 1996.

He says Smith was wrong to slap Chris Rock on the live Oscar show. But Simpson says. “I understand the sentiment.” Like Smith, Simpson was unable to control his rage when he came upon his ex and her friend in an innocent situation on June 12, 1994.

So at least Will has one celebrity supporter. I’m sure he appreciates it.

PS We don’t talk about OJ.
