In a hilarious case of “the pot calling the kettle black,” reviled outcast OJ Simpson told erratic, but talented NFL receiver Antonio Brown “I don’t think many people are pulling for you right now.”
News broke Saturday, Sept. 7, that the Oakland Raiders cut ties with the volatile and infantile Brown, 31, after an extremely tumultuous summer filled with nasty headlines and concluding in a near fight with the team’s general manager.
However, minutes after Brown’s release, it was announced Brown ha in fact landed on his feet. He signed with defending Super Bowl champions, Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.
Like most of the sports world, the Hall of Fame-caliber Simpson, 72, considered one of the five greatest running backs ever before allegedly committing murder, had a lot to say about the matter.
“Hey Twitter world,” he started. “What can I tell you … Antonio looks like you came out smelling like a rose, um I don’t think many people are pulling for you right now, but I’m not kicking you off my fantasy team.
“I can tell you that but I hope you know … Belichick isn’t going to put up with none of the stuff that Tomlinson, who maybe started all of this, and Grudin put up with … I’m just sayin’ buddy, I don’t think you can act like that in New England.”
Twitter followers immediately illuminated the irony of Simpson declaring that another athlete is not popular anymore. They came at him with a flurry of memes and mocking responses.
“Kinda like you smelling like a rose after beating a double murder,” said one Twitter user, while another added. “AB is killing it, amirite?”
One person summed up the sentiments succinctly by telling Simpsion that he provided a “Killer analysis.”
