Even OJ Simpson thinks Carole Baskin murdered her husband

When it comes to OJ Simpson’s suspicions around Carole Baskin, the gloves are off.

The Juice himself chimed in on Netflix’s hit docuseries “Tiger King,” joining a growing chorus of celebs and armchair detectives who believe Baskin, a big cat activist and foe to Joe “Exotic” Maldonado-Passage, murdered her former husband by chopping him up and feeding him to her tigers. Baskin has vehemently denied the theory.

“There’s not a shred of doubt in my mind that that lady’s husband is tiger sashimi right now…I’m just saying,” Simpson, 72, said in a video posted on Twitter Wednesday.

The one-minute clip, which garnered over 5,000 likes in one hour, is especially jaw-dropping since many still suspect that the former running back got away with killing his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson.

Simpson was acquitted of the murders of Brown and her friend Ron Goldman after a lengthy and widely publicized trial. In 2007, Simpson was arrested and charged in Las Vegas for armed robbery and kidnapping. He was sentenced to 33 years in prison, and was paroled and released in October 2017.

 

Even more bizarre is that Simpson was wearing blue hospital gloves in the video, a reminder of the murder gloves Simpson was famously asked to try on during his 1995 trial. More likely, Simpson, who’s been sanitizing himself and his money to avoid contracting the coronavirus, was merely taking protective measures.

Still, many of his followers drew a parallel between himself and Baskin. One asked, “In your expert opinion, did she do a good job getting away with it?”

His opinions of the show — which features a menagerie of oddball characters in the American big-cat world — didn’t stop there.

“Oh my God, is America in this bad of shape? I watched about six episodes of this show, and I couldn’t even believe what I was looking at,” he says after admittedly golfing “pretty well.” “White people! What’s with you and wild animals? Leave them animals alone!”

He continued, “This show is crazy, but it’s so crazy, you kinda keep watching.” Wonder if he felt the same way about the limited series “American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson“?
