“If I Did It,” in which the former U.S. football star offers a hypothetical account of his ex-wife’s murder, has caused a firestorm of controversy since it was revealed last November that Simpson worked with a ghostwriter to author it. Simpson was acquitted of murder charges in 1995, but was later found liable for the killings in a civil trial and ordered to pay $33.5 million in damages to the victims’ families.
You know what? I don’t care if Ron Goldman’s family won the rights to this in court. And downloading it for free off the Web, out of morbid curiosity, is one thing.
But if you actually go out and purchase a copy of this book, you’re officially a piece of shit human being. I don’t care what excuse you make up for yourself about why you’d pay money to find out exactly how this cocksucker hacked a couple of people to death and got away with it, courtesy of an extremely expensive defense team and a Los Angeles jury terrified of starting another set of riots.
You’re a prurient ghoul and you’re a piece of shit human being, and I’ll cheerfully tell you that to your face if I ever see you with a copy of this book.
Let it die, for God’s sake.
