Did OJ do it?! Wait, that’s another trial. Today is the day O.J. Simpson had his parol board hearing after being convicted of armed robbery in 2008, and serving 9 years of his 33 year prison sentence. In front of the Nevada Board of Parole Commissioners and a livestream that the world tuned in on, the infamous celebrity tried to convince why he should be released in October of this year. He gave his account of what went down almost a decade ago, how he’s changed over the course of his sentence, and issued an apology.
Of course, anything surrounding O.J. is a media frenzy, and Twitter wasted no time hilariously commenting on the entire hearing.
