So for those of you not in the know, ex -NFL great and hypocritical sociopath O.J. Simpson not only murdered his ex-wife and a random waiter and got away with it – he recently had big evil plans to profit off of it. News Corp. had the (kind of late in the game) decency to put the kibosh on it.
Fox News reports that Rupert Murdoch himself was responsible for making sure Mr. Simpson wasn’t pretty much REWARDED for pretty much lopping off his ex-wife’s head.
News Corp., the parent company of book publisher HarperCollins and the FOX network, has canceled publication of the O.J. Simpson book and television special “If I Did It.”
“I and senior management agree with the American public that this was an ill-considered project,” said Rupert Murdoch, News Corp. chairman. “We are sorry for any pain that this has caused the families of Ron Goldman and Nicole Brown Simpson.”
In the book, the one-time football superstar tells how he would have killed his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman if, in fact, he had done it.
A dozen FOX affiliates had already said they would not air the two-part sweeps month special, planned for next week before the book’s publication.
One station manager who had said he wasn’t airing the special said he was concerned that whether or not Simpson was guilty, he’d still be profiting from murders.
