Howard Stern calls for Twitter ban over OJ Simpson’s irritating posts, but gets one directed at him instead

Infamous shock jock Howard Stern triggered a feud Wednesday with equally notorious acquitted murderer O.J. Simpson by stating that the former NFL star should be booted from Twitter because of how his social media posts have been affecting Kim Goldman and her family.

“I really feel for you and your family,” he said to Goldman during a discussion with her on his radio show. “I really got triggered because of O.J.’s Twitter feed. Are you able to listen to that at all?

On June 14th, the 25th anniversary of the day he was arrested for the murder of Goldman’s brother, Ron Goldman, and his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, the former NFL star returned to the public limelight by posting a goofy viral video to Twitter.

Since then, he’s been posting videos nonstop showcasing himself living his best life:

“I stomach it,” Goldman said of Simpson’s posts. “It’s not something that feels great. I can’t really avoid it because it keeps coming up.”

“When somebody kills your brother, and they’re on the golf course, and they’re sitting there in their golf cart, living a life that, I mean, most people don’t get to live — it’s a pretty good life it’s got to be maddening,” Stern replied. “It’s insane.”

Goldman concurred.

“I think when he, you know, the ‘yours truly’ and the laughing and the chuckling about everything, I just — that part is really hard to stomach, because I look at him and think rage, murderer, domestic violence abuser,” she said. “It’s just hard for me to see him just enjoying the ‘good life’ like he likes to refer to it.”

Though Simpson was acquitted of Ron Goldman and Nicole Brown Simpson’s murders in 1995, it’s long been suspected by the vast majority of Americans that he really did kill them. He even wrote a horrifying book, “If I Did It: Confessions of the Killer,” suggesting that he was indeed their killers.

“I mean, I didn’t even realize — I went back and was looking and researching and stuff, and your brother was 25 years old when he was murdered. And she was 35. These are people who didn’t get to live their lives. You think Twitter should throw O.J. off? I say yes. What do you say?” Howard said next.

“Why do you say yes?” Goldman replied.

I say yes because … I just think, just to save you the grief of seeing him out there,” he replied.

Listen to their discussion below:

A couple hours after this aired, guess who fired a snarky comeback …

Without naming names, Simpson uploaded a video in which he indirectly slammed Stern for allegedly trying to violate his First Amendment rights.

“Today, I was told that this individual, let’s call him Person A, stated that he thought Person B should not have a right to public expression,” he said. “What’s interesting about that is Person B years ago helped fight for Person A’s right for freedom of expression, public expression.”

“Person A” is presumably Stern, and “Person B” is presumably Simpson.

Simpson may have been referencing Stern’s battles with various companies and government officials over his “offensive” content.

“Throughout his career Stern has been criticized for comments that have been deemed to be racist or otherwise inappropriate,” the so-called First Amendment Encyclopedia notes. “In 1985 he and his staff were fired from NewYork City’s WNBC after they aired a skit entitled ‘Bestiality Dial-A-Date.'”

“In the early 1990s the FCC imposed a fine of $600,000 on Infinity Broadcasting, which then carried Stern’s program, after Stern aired a discussion involving Aunt Jemima and masturbation. Some of his comments after the Columbine High School massacre in Colorado in 1999 brought an official censure from the Colorado state legislature. In 2004 Clear Channel Communications ‘indefinitely suspended’ Stern in six radio markets after he aired a sexual and racist dialogue.”

Simpson’s implication appeared to be that he’d stood up for Sterns during these portions of the radio show host’s career.

He concluded his strange Twitter video Wednesday by talking about politics — namely, the Democrats’ failed attempt to impeach President Donald Trump.


Surprisingly, a lot of people appear to be siding with Simpson.

“Why kick Simpson off twitter?” one tweeted to Stern. “My justice system and yours acquitted him. There are so many onerous, despicable people in the world, and Twitter is their principal platform.”

“Everyone is forgetting one huge piece. He was found not guilty of murder. Regardless if he did it or not, we have laws and we ALL have rights, that includes OJ. If you dont like his Twitter, block him. He has a right to talk about sports politics or anything else. He’s Free,” another added.
