On Sunday, viewers far and wide were captivated by O.J. Simpson once again as Fox aired a “lost” 2006 interview in which he described a hypothetical account of his involvement in the murder of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ron Goldman.
As previously reported, Fox never aired Simpson’s interview with Judith Regan in 2006, and said it was lost until now. In the 2-hour special “O.J. Simpson: The Lost Confession?” he revealed staggering details that he called a “hypothetical” scenario previously detailed in his book “If I Did It.” . . .
The chilling confession caused a lot buzz on social media Sunday night, with the hashtag “#DidOJConfess” trending on Twitter throughout the broadcast. Many viewers went into the first part of the interview with their minds already made up with regards to Simpson’s guilt . . .

Given the nature of the confession, as well as interludes with a panel of experts convinced of Simpson’s guilt, many Twitter users’ outrage built as he recounted incidents of domestic abuse prior to the murder. . .
Listening to OJ recount past events and shifting blame to Nicole for him beating her on New Year's is typical OJ, deflect, disassociate, and blame others #DidOJConfess

However, it was when Simpson started to discuss the hypothetical series of events in which he was responsible for the murders, most users found his language on the matter too puzzling to be just a fictitious account.
How can you talk an laugh so non chalantly about your ex wife’s murder…? #DidOJConfess
