O.J. Simpson won’t be able to watch American Crime Story: The People Vs. O.J. Simpson on FX, which debuts Tuesday night.
According to Inside Edition, O.J. really wants to see the special about the murder trial. However, the prison where he is currently being held doesn’t get FX. Because, you know, it’s a federal prison.
O.J.’s friend Tom Scotto says that the former NLF running back would watch the show if he got it.
Simpson was acquitted of the 1994 murder of Nicole Brown Smith and Ronald Goldman. The show will document the murder trial.
The report is mostly based on an interview with Simpson’s friend Scotto. It also includes details about the former Heisman-winning running back’s weight gain in jail.
Inside Edition says.
Scotto shared details of The Juice’s life behind bars, revealing that he is suffering from depression and piling on weight, now tipping the scales at 300 pounds.
“He’s very, very heavy,” Scotto said. “He’s gained a lot of weight, he eats commissary food and it’s all junk food.”
O.J. was convicted on 12 counts of robbery and kidnapping in 2008. He’s currently serving a sentence of 9-33 years in prison for the crimes.
