Despite not understanding why he was being asked for his opinion on the trial of Alex Murdaugh, who is now a convicted murderer, O.J. Simpson still chose to share his opinion.
Alex Murdaugh, the lawyer, was found guilty of murdering his wife and son. However, prior to the jury's verdict, Simpson tweeted his opinion on the trial despite stating that he didn't understand why people were seeking his input.
The caption of the post by the former NFL running back read, "People keep asking me my opinion of the Alex Murdaugh trial."
"A whole lot of people asking me about this Alex Murdaugh trial. I don’t know why they think I’m an expert on it. But I got to admit when he took the stand, a guy who’s [a] habitual liar, I did watch," Simpson confessed.
"When the trial first started, I watched him take the stand, and I thought it was probably a mistake because the guy is an admitted liar, and it’s hard for me to think he could be on the stand for five, six, seven, eight days without lying," Simpson continued.
Afterward, the "Naked Gun" actor delved into legal analysis, providing commentary on potential crimes such as theft that the convicted murderer should be probed for.
"The question is: What did he lie about? But lying and stealing money is a little different than murder," Simpson said.
"Do I think it’s more likely that he did it? Yes," Simpson continued.
"The Juice," as he is nicknamed, went so far as to draw parallels between the trial and his own 2008 convictions, which led to a nine-year prison sentence for his involvement in an armed altercation over sports memorabilia.
"I’m curious there because I got nine to 33 years because I caught some guys trying to sell my stolen property and I yelled at them, and even they think I shouldn’t go to jail, and the judge gave me nine to 33 years. I’m trying to see what this guy is going to get," Simpson questioned.
Despite being unsure of why he was being asked for his opinion on the trial, he ultimately concluded by stating, "Nevertheless, I do think this guy more than likely did it."
After the verdict was reached, Simpson put out another video, this time with the caption, "Down goes Murdaugh."

Disney Faces Serious Backlash After Releasing 'Anti-White' Cartoon
The reboot of Disney's "The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder" is facing intense criticism over a controversial rap that features children singing about slavery and reparations. The lyrics of the rap argue that America has not done enough to atone for its history of prejudice, racism, and White supremacy and therefore owes Black Americans.
Critics argue that the rap is too mature for the show's young audience, while others argue that the song is an important reminder of the history of racism in America. The rap states, "This country was built on slavery, which means slaves built this country. The descendants of slaves continue to build it. Slaves built this country and we, the descendants of slaves in America, have earned reparations for their suffering and continue to earn reparations every moment we spend submerged in a systemic prejudice, racism, and White supremacy that America was founded with and still has not atoned for."

'Is He Embarrassed?' Reporter Presses White House Press Secretary on Biden's Handling of UFOs, Chinese Spy Balloon
On Tuesday, a White House correspondent inquired whether President Joe Biden is feeling "embarrassed" about his management of the Chinese surveillance balloon and the three unidentified flying objects (UFOs) that were taken down by the U.S. military, during a press conference with White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre.
In the past few days, President Biden instructed the U.S. military to take down four vessels that were passing over the U.S. and Canada due to their potential threat to civilian air travel and national security. Over the weekend, the military successfully shot down three unidentified objects, with one over the shores of Alaska on Friday, another over Canada on Saturday, and a third over Lake Huron on Sunday.
