The Twitter account of O.J. Simpson allegedly sent a series of menacing direct messages — including a string of 16 knife emojis and the warning that “I WILL FIND YOUR ASS AND CUT YOU” — to a parody account that skewers the disgraced football star over his acquittal in the 1994 slayings of ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman.
The shocking threats were contained in a pair of videos posted on the “@KillerOJSimpson” Twitter page on Monday, which also marked the 25th anniversary of the infamous slow-speed police chase of a white Ford Bronco that ended with Simpson’s arrest on murder charges.
The videos posted by @KillerOJSimpson show that the messages it received came from Simpson’s “@TheRealOJ32” account, which he created last week.
The authenticity of the messages and the identity of who sent them couldn’t immediately be verified, and messages to the @KillerOJSimpson handle weren’t returned.
In the first video posted by @KillerOJSimpson, a male narrator says, “Man, you would never guess who the hell just messaged me on Twitter in a DM. Look at this s–t.”
A handheld camera then pans jerkily around a computer screen that shows an exchange of messages that begin with one from Simpson’s account demanding that the parody page be deleted over “false missleading (sic) content I didn’t post.”
“And if I don’t? You gonna stab me too? In reality I ain’t lying..You, me and millions know the truth. You Trippin’ over a parody account lol Welcome to twitter bruh,” the parodist responds.
In reply, a message from Simpson’s account says, “Like I said, delete this ‘Parody’ account as you call it or face serious consequences by me. I’ll find your ass one way or another so don’t mess with me. I got nothing to lose. Grow up!”
The video shows the narrator then sent emojis of a thumbs-up and a dagger, and got back a dagger emoji.
“Look what his ass sent me! Like, for real dude? That’s crazy!” the narrator says.

As of late Monday afternoon, Simpson hadn’t addressed the matter on his Twitter page, which includes a bio with the slogan, “If you don’t see it here, I didn’t say it.”
Simpson’s lawyer, Malcolm LaVergne, didn’t return phone and email messages.
