Would You Ask OJ Simpson for a Selfie?
If you haven't heard, there's a celebrity back in the ArkLaTex, and as notorious as he may be, there seems to be no shortage of folks from our area lining up and asking for a photo. And just who is it we're talking about? It's Heisman Trophy winner, former NFL superstar, ex-TV pitchman and America's most famous former defendant, OJ Simpson.
Yep, the Juice is loose once again in Shreveport. Simpson, who has family in the more rural regions of our part of the state, has paid more than a few visits to northwest Louisiana in the past couple of years and now he's back again.
An perhaps the most interesting part of the Simpson visits are the number of (dare we say) fans who ask him for photos. The "I-got-a-selfie-with-OJ" trend began last Thursday evening when he arrived at Shreveport Regional Airport. But that was nothing compared to his appearance at Line Avenue's Superior Bar & Grill Sunday evening. More than a dozen pics and videos dotted Facebook pages, a obliging OJ smiling in each and every one.
So, the question is, would you request a photo with the man found not guilty of a double homicide nearly a quarter century ago? Take our poll and let us know!
