The official Twitter account of disgraced NFL star O.J. Simpson is accused of sending threatening messages to a parody account that mocks the former football great for being found innocent in the 1994 murders of Nicole Brown and Ronald Goldman.

On Monday, the Twitter account @KillerOJSimpson posted two videos that allege to show seven direct messages sent from @TheRealOJ32, the account Simpson opened last week on the social-media platform.

The @KillerOJSimpson account contains numerous parody videos and doctored photos of Simpson, including a crudely altered image of Simpson smiling while gripping a kitchen knife with a black-gloved hand.

The presence of such blatantly falsified content has prompted many online users to question the veracity of the new videos, which the account claims contain footage of messages from @TheRealOJ32.

The first video posted by @KillerOJSimpson reportedly depicts a male narrator showing a message from @TheRealOJ32 demanding that the parody account be deleted. The narrator shows what he says is his response, refusing to delete anything.

The video then purports to show a message from Simpson’s account that states, “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 narrator then shows how he sent the Simpson account emojis of a thumbs-up and a knife, and allegedly got a knife emoji in return.

In the second video, reportedly posted about three hours later, the narrator claims the Simpson account sent a message stating, “Think I’m playing motherf---er….”

The video then shows a message alleged to be from @TheRealOJ32 that reads, “Seen that video you posted about me. You think I’m playing? Tired of all your bulls--t. I WILL FIND YOUR ASS AND CUT YOU — Don’t believe me? Just watch and see bitch.”

The parody account is shown responding, “Dude there are others that literally have more followers than me and more convincing than mine. LMAO You gonna cut me? Awesome. Is that what you said to Nicole?”

The video then depicts what it alleges is a row of 16 knife emojis followed by the words “you next.”

Since neither the authenticity of the messages nor the identities of who may have sent them have been verified, it's entirely possible the communication is a hoax.

Also of note is that @KillerOJSimpson posted these videos on June 17, 2019 — the 25th anniversary of Simpson’s infamous slow-speed Bronco chase.
