O.J. Simpson Trolls Author Of Book About His Case After Writer 'Exposes Himself To Workmates'

O.J. Simpson has come out and trolled the lawyer who wrote the book about his murder trial, after it was revealed that he had 'accidentally exposed himself to colleagues'.


The disgraced former American football star took to Twitter and posted a video joking about Jeffrey Toobin just hours after he was suspended for allegedly exposing himself on a Zoom call with bosses at The New Yorker magazine.

In the clip shared to his account, Simpson made reference to actor Paul Reubens who was arrested in 1991 for masturbating in a cinema.


He says: "Daaaaamn, Jeffrey Toobin. At least Pee-wee Herman was in an X-rated movie theater."

Toobin wrote the book 'The run of his life: the people v. O.J. Simpson' about Simpson's trial for the allege murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman.

This inspired the TV series The People v. O. J. Simpson: American Crime Story.

Speaking to Vice about the incident, Toobin said he believed he had muted the video and that those on the call would not be able to see him.


The 60-year-old said: "I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera.

"I believed I was not visible on Zoom. I thought no one on the Zoom call could see me. I thought I had muted the Zoom video,.

"I apologise to my wife, family, friends, and co-workers."


The story broke after two people who were on the call came forward to explain exactly what they saw.

According to reports, the Zoom call was a simulation of the upcoming election, with different members of staff playing specific roles. For example, journalist Evan Osnos was playing Joe Biden, Masha Gessen was Donald Trump, and Toobin was playing the courts.

On the line were also some producers from The New Yorker and local radio station WNYC.

At some point, there was a break in the call, with Republican and Democrat groups going into different rooms.


The two people claim that it was then that Toobin appeared to be taking a separate call. When the groups returned, Toobin's camera seemed to have been lowered and they could see him touching himself.

The analyst left the call before dialing back in a few moments later.

New Yorker spokesperson Natalie Raabe told the site: "Jeffrey Toobin has been suspended while we investigate the matter."

In an email to employees, New Yorker editor David Remnick said: "Dear All, As you may have read in various news reports today, one of our writers, Jeff Toobin, was suspended after an incident on a Zoom call last week. Please be assured that we take such matters seriously and that we are looking into it."


A spokesperson for CNN also said: "Jeff Toobin has asked for some time off while he deals with a personal issue, which we have granted."
