Tacky is as Tacky Does - or - O.J., it isn't just for breakfast anymore.

I remember when O.J. Simpson was revered as a great ball player and all around great guy. Remember him in the Airplane movies? Remember the commercial (Avis car rental I believe) where he ran through the airport terminal?

Then I remember when I reacted with a literal jaw drop when the verdict to acquit him came from the "Trial of the Century".

Now I am somewhat stunned as he comes up with one of the most unbelievably tacky stunts imaginable. If you haven't heard, He has now authored a book titled "If I Did It, Here's How It Happened", where in he details how he would have carried out the murders, if he had in fact done it.

Is O.J. that desperate for money and decided to "get gain" at the cost of the memory of his wife and dragging the families through this again? We know that some time after the acquittal, He was ordered to pay about $33 million for costs of the crimes, in a civil trial, but it is understood he has only paid some thousands of dollars to the families.

Or, is he just feeling left out of the spot light and this is the only way he can think of to get attention.

Shame on you Mr. Simpson. For bringing this tragedy back into focus in a way that mocks the event, the judicial system, the families, and your participation in the murders. Yes, we all believe you did it. Yes we feel like this is finally your confession. Who knows, maybe you do have some bit of a conscience that prompted this, but I doubt it.

My thoughts and sympathies go out to his children. It is bad enough that they had to lose their mother in this horrific way but now they have to live through the memories and added press all over again.

I would hope that the American public would show their disdain for this pathetic attempt at the spotlight by not wasting their hard earned money on it.

What will the next books be, author Kato Kaylin with "Testimony, The House Guest's Guide", and "Face First, Using Your Deposition as an Audition"?

    Yeah, I was pretty disgusted when I read about it in the paper. We should start a ban OJ's book campaign.

  5. It's unbelievable. I first heard this on "Inside Edition", I guess then I heard Conan making fun of it on his show. I mean... the nerve of this guy! And now it makes you kinda think this could actually be his confession. Only no one could be tried for the same crime twice, so I think he's teasing everyone. Weird.

    Here via BlogSoldiers btw :)

  7. He'll totally sell out, too. That's the REALLY sick part. I mean, we all know he's a twisted murderer, so his behavior isn't a big stretch. But, the public will want the book, just to say they have it.

  8. I think it takes a lot of nerve to pull schlock like this.

    He as much as says "I did it, and you can't do anything about it!"

    He did it, and he knows full well he did it. It would seem to me that the court would prevent him from profiting from his crime.

    It is ridiculous to allow a murderer to make money from the gory details of how he visciously killed two people.

    I can't even stand to look at the bum anymore.
