OJ Simpson is catching heat for something he said during his appearance on Cam’ron and Mase’s It Is What It Is podcast this week.
“Thank you to our football analyst OJ Simpson for joining us today,” Treasure Wilson said while introducing The Juice.
She then brought up Aaron Rodgers’ injury and the fact that he is out for the season.
“What are your thoughts?” she asked the group.
It was at that point that The Juice dropped a very crass 9/11 comment.
“Unfortunately, 9/11 is just a bad day for New York, you know?” he added with a patented OJ chuckle.
June 12, 1994 was a bad day for Ron and Nicole too.

“9/11 and a football injury are worlds apart on the scale of importance so using them in the same sentence not cool, but what I want to know is, if OJ is still looking for Nicole and Ron’s killer, and has he tried the mirror?” another person asked.
When did O.J. get a Ph.D. in hypocrisy?

“Wait a minute, there’s a show that asks OJ to give his opinion on things?” someone else asked.
Was the first thing they thought of when Rodgers went down be “lets go see what OJ thinks”

OJ would go on to say, “That’s the problem with not playing at all,” referring to Aaron Rodgers, “before you go out on the field.
“That wasn’t a bad tackle. You gotta get your body loose. You gotta get some contact. I always thought it was a mistake to not play at all in the pre-season.”
“You know, you throw the ball a couple of times in the last game, or second to last game, but you really gotta get hit. You gotta get hit a few times. Your body reacts differently the more you get hit.”
So there you go. If Aaron Rodgers had just gotten hit more in the pre-season then being attacked by a gigantic human being wouldn’t have resulted in him rupturing his Achilles tendon. So says OJ.
