Here’s a trip down bizarre memory lane: Remember the book O.J. Simpson wrote, If I Did It, about how he might have killed his ex-wife Nicole Brown and Ronald Goldman if he were the murderer, which he says he definitely wasn’t?
If there’s one thing O.J. Simpson is sure of, it’s the fact that he is not Khloé Kardashian’s biological father.

Deplorables are easy to spot, since they’re usually wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat or a white hood or something by Ed Hardy. Another way to tell if you are a deplorable is if prostitutes threaten to quit if you get a job where they work.
Black America figured that O.J. Simpson would be in prison forever. To hear white people tell it, O.J. is responsible for: ex-wife Nicole Simpson’s and Ron Goldman’s deaths; the current Black Lives Matter movement; Colin Kaepernick’s protest and hair; Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s maritial issues; and Drake’s supposed baby with…

It would feel like hell outside across much of the country on the day O.J. Simpson had a parole hearing to determine whether or not he could leave the Lovelock Correctional Center in Lovelock, Nev., a few years early.
A rumor spread across the internet and social media Wednesday that O.J. Simpson could miss out on the possibility of parole because he had been caught by a female corrections officer masturbating in his cell.
