DISH NATION HOSTS REACT TO OJ SIMPSON’S GRANTED PAROLE
Thursday, Jul 20, 2017
After 9 years in prison for a robbery in Las Vegas, O.J. Simpson has been granted parole by four Nevada commissioners.
The ex-NFL player could be released on October 1st. Simpson said he takes full responsibility for the incident, claims he never meant to steal and wishes that ‘this would have never happened.’ His oldest daughter was present in support of his release.
“No one really knows how much we have been through, this ordeal in the last nine years. We just want him to come home,” she said. “This has been really, truly hard. I know that he is remorseful.”
Now that O.J. will soon be a free man the internet has been quick to share their opinions, including our own talent. Right after the hearing, Da Brat jumped onto Dish Nation’s Facebook Live expressing her joy for the release of Simpson.
“I’m so happy for him… I’m so happy for him!” She said as she was in her car listening to CNN on the radio, announcing O.J.’s parole. “I’m happy for him because everybody deserves a second chance.”
She went on to talk about being tired of people still linking O.J. to domestic violence and murder.
“I’m so sick of people talking about domestic violence! This has nothing to do with that case. He was acquitted for that case. Like let it go. Stop trying to bring up the past. Everybody’s got a past and everybody makes mistakes… If he was found not guilty, then he was found not guilty– that’s the end of that for me.”
Da Brat also said she strongly believes O.J. was set up because people were angry he was acquitted. “But my opinion doesn’t matter right now because he was granted parole. Congratulations O.J!”
Headkrack also was quick to hop on Facebook Live. “Hey, he was granted parole, so that’s a good thing!”
LA hosts Sammi and Erik also shared their thoughts on a live video. Sammi mentioned she really didn’t care about his parole but was rather surprised at O.J’s reactions and the fact he didn’t seem sorry or finish his Anger Management classes.
Erik, on the other hand, thinks that the verdict was fair.
“He had a very good apology and I did see a genuine remorse… And we have to keep in mind that no matter what you think happened in the past, this is a parole hearing for the theft… and he served the minimum amount of time and it’s fair and just. That’s the way our justice department works.”
