There was once a time in America where OJ Simpson was one of the most beloved stars in Hollywood, sports, and entertainment. “The Juice” went from a star running back at the University of Southern California to star running back in the NFL with the Buffalo Bills. He won the Heisman Trophy in 1968, and after a stellar career in the NFL (he once rushed for over 2,000 yards in a 14 game season), he was selected to the NFL’s Hall OF Fame in 1985.
His stardom didn’t stop with football. Not only was he a fantastic pitch-man, starring in numerous commercials, he also made his way into the movies. With over 30 acting credits to his name, he’s most known for starring beside Leslie Nielsen in the Naked Gun series. All of that came to a screeching halt when Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman were found brutally murdered.
We recently wrote about fame and infamy in regards to Martin Shkreli, but once America got a glance at OJ involved in the “White Bronco High-Speed Chase,” he went from world famous to infamous in the blink of an eye. Although acquitted of all charges after the biggest trial in pop culture history, OJ’s reputation was destroyed. He hasn’t done much to rehabilitate that, going as far as writing a book titles If I Did It. Now, word is travelling that he has actually confessed to the crime.
