are you fucking kidding me?

What kind of world do we live in, where OJ Simpson can not only show his face in public, but can charge people money for his autograph?

NORTHRIDGE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Sept. 28, 2005–As unbelievable as it seems, O.J. Simpson and his good friend and former teammate Al (A.C.) Cowlings will both make a public appearance in Los Angeles this weekend at the NecroComicon in the Los Angeles suburb of Northridge, Calif.

Simpson will sign autographs and pose for pictures for a fee starting at $95.00 per signature. Coincidentally, Simpson’s appearance will coincide with the 10th anniversary of Simpson’s acquittal for double murder charges.

OJ Simpson was found liable and responsible for the deaths of two people in civil court in 1997. In other words, he fucking killed two human beings.

I’ve spent a lot of time on the convention circuit since my days on Star Trek. I know a lot of people who make their living on the convention circuit. I know several people who are scheduled to appear at this event. I know that events like this can be an important part of someone’s yearly income.

However, there are things in this world more important than money. Things like honor and truth and justice. I call on all good and decent people — guests and attendees — to boycott this convention, until the promoters send OJ Simpson back to the golf course where he’s been fucking offsearching for “the real killers” for the last decade.

  1. Celebrity gets you a whole bunch, whether you’re a porn star, inept politician or cold blooded killer. The real questions are left for the people willing to pay the 95 bucks for OJ’s siggie, or the guys who signed him on for the gig. These are the people who pay his way. Are folks asking them why?

  2. Disgusting. But as easy a target as OJ is, I lay the blame on the idiots who’ll pay him money for his scrawl. Without a demand there’d be no supply.

  3. For another take on the O.J. trial anniversary, watch FRONTLINE’s “The O.J. Verdict,” airing Tuesday, October 4, at 9 p.m. on PBS (check local listings). FRONTLINE revisits the case, interviewing the defense, prosecution, and journalists, and exploring both the dominant role that race played in the controversial verdict–and what the trial revealed about America’s racial divide.

    or come back on October 6 and watch the entire film online.
