LOS ANGELES -- In a scene from his new candid-camera program "Juiced," OJ Simpson pulls a prank involving the infamous white Bronco, drawing criticism from the family of a man he was accused of killing.
As part of the pay-per-view show, Simpson pretends to sell the Bronco at a used car lot and boasts to a prospective buyer that he made the vehicle famous, according to a segment aired Thursday on "Inside Edition."
"It was good for me -- it helped me get away," Simpson said, referring to the slow-speed, televised police chase that preceded his 1994 arrest on charges of murdering his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ronald Goldman.
Goldman's father, Fred, told "Inside Edition" he found Simpson's comment "morally reprehensible."
Simpson was acquitted of murder. A civil jury later held him liable for the deaths and ordered him to pay $33.5 million to the Brown and Goldman families.
Much of that judgment remains unpaid.
"Any money that he makes, I hope, will go to satisfy the multimillion dollar judgment made against him in the civil case," said Brown family attorney Gloria Allred.
The hour-long program is airing on pay-per-view this month, and a DVD offering uncensored material will be made available soon, "Juiced" executive producer Rick Mahr told The Associated Press.
Other practical jokes include Simpson disguised as an Elvis impersonator, a vagabond selling oranges for money and an elderly man leading a Bingo game.
Simpson was not paid for the program, Mahr said.
"Basically O.J. Simpson has decided to do this because he wants to do it, and he wanted to have fun with it," Mahr said.
This is a picture of a Bronco II. Who's OJ trying to scam here? I know he was not in no Bronco II, but a full size Bronco.
I thought he was too busy out looking for Nichol and Ron's killer to be bothered with stuff like this.
Of course. He's been on 10,000 golf courses. Hasn't found the killer at any of them.
The entertainment industry has no soul.
Well certainly OJ has no soul.
I can't wait for the day when he slips up and admits to killing his wife and Ron. He constantly taunts the Goldman family. "Justice is mine", sayeth the Lord.
I hope Satan takes a personal shine to OJ in the afterlife.
How about the prank where he butchers two people. What a laugh riot that would be.
Tasteless, but I think some here have it all wrong. The report says he is not being paid for this, so just maybe he is using this show as cover while he searches for the real killer. Yeah, that's it.
The rehabilitation begins. In a couple more years he'll be an American Hero. People can disappoint, like the person who even asked OJ to do this, that also is reprehensible.
I think that in a couple of years, O.J. just may have an accident. The revenge dish has been cooled off sufficiently enough to be served.
I did a keyword search on "Simpson" ----- nothing found.
But since we have different links with different headlines-----
Oh well - isn't the first duplicate thread on FR, and it won't be the last!
