WHO Said That? O.J. Simpson In Hot Water Over Comments About Taylor Swift And Brittney Mahomes

Former NFL star O.J. Simpson has become infamous for outlandish remarks made during his stint as co-host of the It Is What It Is YouTube show with Cam’ron, Ma$e, and Treasure “Stat Baby” Wilson. However, his latest commentary on the budding friendship between Taylor Swift and the wife of Patrick Mahomes, Brittney, has the polarizing figure in hot water, Men’s Journal reports.

Swift and Mahomes have been thrust into the NFL sphere by way of the former’s relationship with Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce. The two women, in support of their partners, have even created a celebratory handshake; which cameras captured during the Chiefs vs. Chargers game on Oct. 22. For a little pizazz, the duo added a chest bump that seems to have given Simpson an afternoon delight. When questioned about the touchdown celebration by It Is What It Is host Ma$e, the Heisman winner failed to contain his excitement. “I didn’t know who the other girl [Mahomes] was, but I thought it was interesting. I was thinking the same thing you was thinking,” Simpson responded. “Their boulders was hitting each other, you know. It was a little bit of a turn-on. [A] little turn-on.”

Following the episode’s airing on Oct. 23, social media was abuzz with responses to Simpson’s comments. “Chiefs need to step up security immediately,’ one X user responded. “Oj simpson saying he was turned on by brittany mahomes and taylor swift handshake chest bump is SO weird,” commented another. Still, some found the clip to be hilarious proof of Simpson’s never-ending ability to talk himself into headline. “Oj saying this with the [USC] Trojans sweatshirt on is funny af,” a X user posted. “The jokes write themselves for this one,” said another.
