Sacha Baron Cohen did a remarkably uncomfortable interview with OJ Simpson

Sacha Baron Cohen did a remarkably uncomfortable interview with OJ Simpson

According to The Hollywood Reporter's recap of the episode, Cohen's character pretended to interview Simpson for a show called La Vita Diamante di Gio, which served as a spoof of the show Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous. When that doesn't work, Cohen's character makes apparent stabbing motions and the girlfriend finally understands who Simpson is.

"She knows that, oh Jesus", Simpson replies, shaking his head and laughing. He added: "I are looking out for to ship her on a non-public helicopter tour over the Big Canyon - oops-a-daisy".

While Simpson stood his ground and asserted that he "didn't kill nobody", thus rendering Cohen's prank somewhat fruitless, many other high profile figures were not so lucky. The meeting was recorded on a hidden camera.

Next, Morad pulled out an effigy of U.S President Donald Trump and said, "In order to convince them that you are a radical liberal, you will have to be able to show disrespect to the man we all admire most". He then broached the subject of Nicole's murder by saying they were both "ladykillers" - prompting O.J.to state: "No, I didn't kill nobody".

However, Simpson laughed and said, "No, I didn't kill nobody".

Sacha Baron Cohen took on OJ Simpson in the season finale of his Showtime series "Who Is America?".

At the beginning of the clip, Cohen's character introduces a fake girlfriend and attempts to explain who Simpson is to the girlfriend.

LaVergne also said they filmed for hours and said that Simpson doesn't find the deaths of Brown Simpson and Goldman amusing "on any level" - but that it was Cohen's choice to edit it the way he did.

At one point, Monaldo told Simpson of a friend who was "obsessed with what happened that night with the wife" and said the friend wanted to talk to him about it.

Simpson, who was acquitted on criminal murder charges in 1995, was found liable two years later in civil court and ordered to pay $33.5 million in damages to the Brown and Goldman families.

So, in thanks for the free press, Cohen ended the last episode of Who Is America? with a credit for Palin as the show's "Special Publicity Consultant (Inadvertent)".
