FOX Cuts and Runs on OJ

11/20/2006 5:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

OJ SimpsonCommon sense and good taste seem to have prevailed: FOX has decided to pull the plug on both its planned OJ Simpson book and television interview special, "O.J. Simpson: If I Did It, Here's How It Happened."

Good.

News Corporation Chairman and CEO Rupert Murdoch said today, "I and senior management agree with the American public that this was an ill-considered project. We are sorry for any pain this has caused the families of Ron Goldman and Nicole Brown-Simpson."

The interview will most likely be a pay-for-view event now. OJ will make more money off it.

GREAT! How pathetic is it that OJ felt the need to 'share' with us all? You'd think that after getting away with murder, he'd drift off into the sunset somewhere and finish his life out of the limelight ... but no-o-o-o, not OJ, he just can't get enough publicity. Good move, Fox!

Hey Shakeem, try READING the press release the book is cancled too. By the way have you ever seen a picture of O.J. where he didn't look crazy??? Oh yeah the one of him wearing his Bruno Maglies shoes. Now O.J. can go back to looking for the real killers.

Let's not blame OJ. The majority of us know he is a complete idiot. I blame Judith Regan for trying to score what she probably considered a coup. It's not. It was a horrendous thought. It was akin to ripping the scab off a wound.
Murdoch did the right thing.

I wish he could be tried again. We have shown that you really can get away with murder. I feel sorry for the families having to know this, and that his life goes on as usual.

I smell ya    

I am African American and it is not about race. It is about the morals and respect. I was going to stop watching family guy because I could not believe that they were putting a killer....YEAH I SAID KILLER. what SOB would go before the world to talk about how he would kill the mother of his children. To open a sore of pain for them. He needs to crawl in some butt. It was such a bad taste that his own lawyer distance from him. Our judiciary system is not perfect and just because he got a way, does not mean he did not do it. It is a sad day when a criminal tries to make a profit of his crimes

common sense    

Thank goodness, Fox have come to its' senses. This turd needs to rot in Hell! He deserves nothing better! But of course, all the Blacks, African Americans, Negros, or whatever the poliitically correct term is these days, will come out and scream "RACISM", but what's new?
