Sacha Baron Cohen targets O.J. Simpson in ‘Who Is America?’ finale”

Sacha Baron Cohen's controversial, intermittently brilliant Who Is America? wrapped up its first (and likely only) season on Sunday night, and the Showtime series went out in a shocking, if ultimately underwhelming, fashion by introducing none other than athlete, actor, and alleged murderer O.J.

Simpson insisted he only wanted to retrieve personal mementos and items that were stolen from him following his acquittal in Los Angeles in the 1994 slayings of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ronald Goldman.

However, his jovial demeanor and the high five that he offered Baron Cohen seemed incriminating enough to us.

"Hey, hey, I didn't get away with nothing", Simpson said.

Simpson was found liable for the killings in 1997 and ordered by a California civil court jury to pay $33.5 million to victims' families. The former Buffalo Bills player was released on parole in October last year after spending nine years in prison for his role in a 2007 armed robbery at a Las Vegas hotel.
