O.J. Simpson revealed via a Twitter video that he believes Carole Baskin, one of the subjects of Netflix’s hit docuseries, Tiger King, got away with murder—and many find it ironic.

“There’s not a shred of doubt in my mind that that lady’s husband is tiger sashimi right now,” Simpson said, referencing the theory that Baskin fed her husband to the tigers. “I’m just saying.”

Simpson recorded the video after playing a round of golf. His biggest revelation after watching Tiger King is that he believes Baskin murdered her billionaire husband, Don Lewis, who mysteriously disappeared.

Many on Twitter couldn’t help but see the dark comedy in the video considering Simpson has been accused of getting away with murder himself. In 1994, Simpson was tried for the murders of his wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman. He was notoriously acquitted.

“Finally, an expert has weighed in,” HuffPost editor Philip Lewis tweeted.

Aside from the irony of Simpson’s revelation, others were alarmed by the former NFL star wearing a latex blue glove in the video.
