O.J. Simpson joined Twitter with a video publication in which he stated that he "even had a little fun to do."
The infamous former football star has created an account on Friday with the name of the user @ TheRealOJ32. His biography reads: "If you do not see it here, I will not have said it."
In his inaugural video tweet, which was viewed more than 9 million times, Simpson said that there were "a lot of fake O.J. accounts," adding that this one would be official. He added that Twitter users would read all his "thoughts and opinions on just about everything".
"It should be a lot of fun," said Simpson, 71. "I have a little gettin, even to do."
In a second video tweeted Saturday, Simpson said he loved learning to use Twitter.
"You've known for years that people were able to say what they meant about me without any responsibility," he said. "But now, I can challenge a lot of this B.S. and make things clear."
The Heisman Trophy winner, who was acquitted in 1995 after the murder of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and his friend, Ronald Goldman, said he "could talk about everything, including sports football. and fantastic, and even politics. "Nicole Brown Simpson and Goldman were stabbed to death on the night of June 12, 1994. The murder case is officially listed as unresolved.
Simpson was released from prison in October 2017 after serving a nine-year jail sentence for the theft and kidnapping in Las Vegas, linked to a botched sports memorabilia robbery.
In a recent interview with the Associated Press, Simpson said neither he nor his children wanted to come back on the night his ex-wife and Goldman had been murdered.
"We do not need to go back and relive the worst day of our lives," Simpson said. "The subject of the moment is the one I will never come back to." My family and I moved on to what we call the "non-negative zone." We focus on the positives. "
Fred Goldman, father of Ronald Goldman, celebrated the 25th anniversary of his son's death last week by telling NBC News that he was still convinced that Simpson was guilty of the murder. He said that sending Simpson to jail, even on death row, "would have been real justice."
