Fans Get Vulgar With Trump At UFC PPV

Fans chanted ‘F*** Joe Biden’ to Donald Trump at UFC 302.

O.J. Simpson, the former football star and actor who was the subject of one of the most famous criminal trials in American history, passed away at the age of 76 from cancer. His death comes years after his high-profile trial in the 1990s, where he was accused of murdering his ex-wife, Nicole Simpson, and her friend, Ron Goldman. Simpson’s trial garnered significant media attention and sparked debates on race, celebrity, and justice in America.

During an appearance on the Mayim Bialik’s Breakdown podcast, “Curb Your Enthusiasm” star Cheryl Hines shared a personal anecdote from her time working at the Hotel Inter-Continental in Los Angeles, where the Simpson jury was sequestered during the trial. Hines recalled the strict conditions imposed on the jurors, including isolation from media and public contact, limited movement within the hotel, and a curfew.

The intense environment led to tension among the jurors, with Hines mentioning how one juror etched “help me” on a window, signaling their frustration. To alleviate stress, a hotel pianist was hired to play for the sequestered jury. Hines recounted that her manager had asked her to keep a packed bag by the door in case she needed to check in quickly for a potential verdict.

Judge Lance Ito, who presided over the trial, explained the reasoning behind sequestering the jury, aiming to maintain fairness and limit external influences. Despite the judge’s efforts to make the sequestering process less harsh, Hines noted that the prolonged confinement caused significant stress.

The jury ultimately deliberated for 253 days before reaching a verdict, which was broadcast live to millions of viewers. The reactions to Simpson’s acquittal were divided along racial lines, with a majority of Black Americans agreeing with the verdict while many White Americans disagreed.
