Possibly the Most Despicable Man On the Face of the Earth With the Exception of Hitler and Maybe a Few Child Murderers Gets His Book and Television Special Cancelled

November 20th, 2006 // 6 Comments

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.

Duh.

News Corp. Cancels O.J. Simpson Book and TV Special [FOX News]

  1. Judith Reagan should be forced to marry him for signing this deal in the first place.

  2. Jinxy McDeath

    They already paid the 3.5 million to his kids. Just one more reason out of thousands to boycott anything Fox or Newscorp. The only thing that could make this right is the public execution of Rupert Murdoch,and the flogging of Judith Regan. All parties involved are evil.

  3. Lisa

    What makes this whole thing even more insulting is that Judith Regan actually tried to garner sympathy by claiming that she was a victim of domestic abuse. That is of course why she agreed to tthe book in the first place. This woman should not only be flogged but be sterilized and the children that she does have should be removed from her care immediatley!!!!!!!

    How could she possibly try to justify what she did? What’s worse is that she is makes a mockery of actual domestic abuse victims.

    Thank goodness they canceled this. What were they thinking? It was absolutely the most tasteless thing I’ve encountered in a long time.

    I agree with J.Harvey on this one. Although I feel the need to clarify one of his points:

    1. Hitler never won a Heisman Trophy.

    (Yes, people can like BOTH gossip websites AND college football – we’re called SUPERHEROES)

    It’s about damn freakin’ time! HOW can O.J. Simpson face his children??! What kind of world do we live in when a man who we ALL KNOW brutally murdered his ex-wife and an innocent man, write’s a book and gives an interview on national television, about how he “would have” (wink-wink-cough-cough)committed the murders if HE HAD INDEED DONE IT??!!
    Just further proof that the world we live in is so full of sick, twisted, money-hungry, media whores!!
