Best OJ Simpson Reactions to Parole Decision: ‘Now OJ Can Find the Real Killers’

Viewers had a lot to say about star calling himself a ”straight shooter“ during Thursday’s hearing

O.J. Simpson was granted parole on Thursday, leading to a deluge of memes and GIFs.

Simpson will be released on October 1 following the decision from the Nevada Board of Parole Commissioners about his robbery case.

“Well at least now OJ can find the real killers,” one Twitter user wrote about the retired NFL star going free.

During the hearing, the athlete addressed the Nevada parole board, as did his lawyer, Malcolm LaVergne, daughter Arnelle Simpson and Bruce Fromong, one of the victims in the robbery case.

The speeches from all four individuals spurred plenty of social media reactions, particularly Simpson referring to himself as a “straight shooter.”

The Hall of Fame NFL star was sentenced to nine to 33 years in prison in 2008 for armed robbery and kidnapping in Las Vegas.
