& # 39; You can't even vote! & # 39; Twitter users joke O.J Simpson after posting a video of him watching the democratic presidential debate
- O.J Simpson went to Twitter to encourage Americans to view Democrat debate
- But Twitter users have pointed out that he cannot vote as a convicted person
- Simpson served nine years in prison on armed robberies and kidnapping costs
O.J Simpson was hit on Twitter after he went to the social media platform to share a video in which he watched the democratic presidential primary debate.
Simpson, 71, encouraged & # 39; every American & # 39; to watch the debate – before Twitter users pointed out that he should not vote as a convicted criminal.
Nevada, the state where Simpson lives, has recently adopted a bill for criminal justice reform that will allow criminals to vote in 2020.
The voting rights are not automatically restored & # 39; to a person like this who has been convicted of a Category A or B crime.
Simpson served nine years in the state prison during armed robberies and kidnapping costs related to a Las Vegas crack in 2017 and both crimes are classified as category B crimes.
In the video, he said: “Hey, Twitter world, it's me – really.
& # 39; Sitting at my house, waiting for this debate to hear a group of people who think they are capable of running our country, & # 39; he added. & # 39; It should be interesting, because to be honest, I don't know most of these guys. But interested to hear what they have to say. & # 39;
He sat in a leather armchair and watched the debates on a large screen in his living room when he posted the video of Wednesday on Twitter.
However, he was slammed online for the video.
A Twitter user said: & # 39; Bro you can't even vote. & # 39;
Another commented: & # 39; Just a stab in the dark here, but are ex-olds allowed to vote in your country? & # 39;
A third wrote: & # 39; You cannot vote because you are a criminal. This is a parody account right? & # 39;
Simpson, convicted in 2008 and released in 2017, has been viral with his tweets in the past two weeks after creating his Twitter account on June 14.
He was accused of sending threatening messages from the new account – a move that could potentially violate the conditions of his conditional release.
O.J Simpson shared a video of himself as he watched the democratic presidential primary debate
On Sunday, June 16, seven direct messages were sent from the social profile of the 71-year-old, @ TheRealOJ32, to a parody account called @KillerOJSimpson, who pokes fun at the controversial Football Hall of Famer.
The parody account published a video of the exchanges that would have taken place with the former NFL star – and they soon became violent in nature.
Simpson allegedly sent the first message to the parody account and wrote: & # 39; Delete this account or let my lawyer delete it for false misleading content that I did not post. & # 39;
When the man behind the parody account responds with a refusal, Simpson replies: & # 39; As I said, delete this & # 39; Parody & # 39; account as you call it or get serious consequences from me. I'll find you a way not to mess with me somehow. I have nothing to lose. Grow up. & # 39;
OJ Simpson joined Twitter on June 14 and has already been accused of sending violent threats through the site's direct messaging service.
