    Simpson's attorney says it was about race and plans to "go after" the restaurant's liquor license.

    I bet OJ gets tired of people playing the "you killed your wife" card on him.

    I guess the owner can do what ever he wants to...that being said I don't think the community will support him too much.

    O.J. is still relatively popular given his past.


    Plus the whole race thing...

    Well, when you actually kill your wife you kind of give people unlimited use of that card.

    Most stores have a 'we can refuse to serve you for any reason' rule. The guy stated why.
    Maybe he didn't want OJ too near all those sharp steak knives. Too tempting.

    This is all over the local news (I guess because it happened here :lol )

    I was going to post this but Drippy beat me to it. :( 

    And I'd like to add that I'm sick of the fucking race card, this has nothing to do with his race.

    Hmm...Mob mentality?

    What I meant was that OJ still has some popularity in some form or another...sure he will never work again, but he doesn't get booed or hissed while walking down the street.

    I don't see a mob mentality.

    The guy is popular, always has been, but now it's because it's widely assumed he killed his wife and Goldman, not because he's a former NFL star. The guy gets media attention everywhere he goes in some fashion because he's "out looking for the real killer" on golf courses, strip clubs, and steakhouses, all the while saying he can't afford to pay the judgement from his civil trial.

    He may not be booed or hissed while walking down the street, but he's not exactly having people sing his praises either.

    The guy has a right to refuse service to anyone. I can't be sure becasue I am not the guy, but I would guess it had NOTHING to do with race. He would probably to the same to Scott Peterson.

    I thought that sounded pretty scary, is OJ going to cut this fool now?

    He would if he walked down my street. But then again i boo and hiss at most people so it wouldn't be uncommon.

    I would have been like,

    "sir, you can eat here, but i can't give you a steak knife. We still serve wives at this establishment. which is not to say you can order one. But we have a lovely array of soups."

    If he sat down at a table next to me at a nice place, I'm the kind of asshole who would complain to the manager and try and get a free meal out of it. I'd say the rat bastard was looking at my pretty blonde date funny and clenching his fist.

    OJ: "It's because I'm black, isn't it?"
    Ruby: "No, sir. It's because you murdered 2 people, proceeded to run away very very slowly (I mean, really, what the fuck?) on national TV, thus making yourself look unbelievably guilty, and yet somehow still managed to get away with it, and then had the gall to write a book about it."
    OJ: "...It's because I'm black, isn't it?"
    Dick. Murder your ambulance chaser of a lawyer while you're at it, please.

    I hear the restaurant owner is going to write a book called "If I cooked you a steak, this is how I'd do it."
