O.J. Simpson is something of a notorious figure. As such, it should come as no surprise that the one-time NFL legend has his fair share of detractors.

What is a bit surprising is why some folks are hating on Simpson this week.

On December 25, the retired running back tweeted out a photo of himself with a ‘Merry Christmas’ caption.

Reactions were pretty much what you would expect.

Once upon a time Simpson was an extremely a popular athlete and broadcaster. Sadly, he is now best known for being tried for the murders of his former wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ron Goldman.

Simpson was originally acquitted of the murders in criminal court, but was later found responsible for both deaths in a civil trial.

Although Simpson never served any prison time for the deaths of Nicole Brown Simpson or Ron Goldman, he did eventually find himself behind bars.

In 2007, Simpson was arrested in Las Vegas, Nevada, and charged with the felonies of armed robbery and kidnapping. One year later, he was convicted and sentenced to 33 behind bars, with a minimum of nine years without parole for the crimes. He ultimately served his sentence at the Lovelock Correctional Center near Lovelock, Nevada and was granted parole on July 20, 2017.
