VIDEO: Howard and Robin Talk About the Death of O.J. Simpson

“Nothing pissed me off more than listening to O.J.’s routine,” Howard says of Simpson's social media videos

O.J. Simpson, a football legend and movie star turned police fugitive and double-murder defendant, died earlier this month at the age of 76. On Monday morning, Howard finally got the chance to share his thoughts on “The Juice’s” passing.

“O.J.’s a scumbag,” he began, explaining that while some people think speaking ill of the dead is in bad taste, an exception can be made for Simpson, who a civil trial jury deemed to be responsible for the brutal 1994 murders of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ronald Goldman.

“Forget the fact that O.J. didn’t go to jail over murdering Nicole and Ron Goldman … but O.J. lost a case in court to the Goldman family, where they sued him … [and] O.J. never paid [what he owed],” Howard continued. “The system is fucked up.”

Howard was surprised to learn O.J. was 76, considering how active he’d been on social media. “Nothing pissed me off more than listening to O.J.’s routine,” he added before playing a montage of the acquitted murder suspect’s Twitter videos in which he laughs about partying, enjoying life, smoking cigars, and playing golf.

“The most infuriating thing is that he gives no indication of how haunted he was by Nicole’s death. I don’t think he thought about it for a minute,” Howard continued. “The poor woman – he married her, from all accounts he [physically abused] her on a regular basis … why he had to kill her, I don’t know.”

Before putting the topic to bed, Howard played a Stern Show clip featuring Kim Goldman — Ronald’s sister — who sat down with Howard in 2019 to discuss her brother’s death, the infamous O.J. trial, and how it affected her at a young age. “I think there’s people who are completely fascinated by him,” Kim said of O.J. “You can watch him on Twitter … [His online presence is] really hard to stomach because I look at him and think rage, murderer, domestic violence abuser. It’s just hard for me to see him just enjoying ‘the good life,’ as he likes to refer to it.”

All these years later, Howard was still troubled by the injustice. “O.J., rot in hell. I mean, what the fuck?” he concluded.
