O.J. P.O.'d at FX
Let’s all take a moment to cry a river for O.J. Simpson, whose lawyer says he is none too pleased with the ads and interviews promoting the 10-part series The People vs. O.J. Simpson.
To clarify, the former football star isn’t upset about how he’s being depicted. He’s aggro about the supposed unfair portrayal of his former defense lawyer, Johnnie Cochran, whom attorney Malcolm LaVergne told the Associated Press Simpson greatly admired.
Not that any of this really matters; Simpson isn’t allowed to watch the FX series because he’s being held on a 2008 kidnapping and armed robbery conviction, and the Nevada prison he calls home doesn’t carry the cable network.
Simpson might be able to check it out next year, though, when he’ll be eligible for parole.
