O.J. Simpson is a happy man today, after he was granted parole on his prison sentence for kidnapping and armed robbery.
Now 70, the former NFL great could be released as early as October, after spending the minimum of 9 years behind bars.
As soon as the news was announced during the hearing, "The Juice Is Loose" started trending on Twitter and Hollywood began chiming in.
So far, only a couple celebrities have celebrated the news, with Tiffany "New York" Pollard and former "Basketball Wives" star Tami Roman happy with the results of the hearing.
Some ppl aren't happy w/the OJ verdict & him being granted parole, but for the robbery case, this man did his time favorably. #OJSimpson— IG: @TamiRoman (@TamiRoman) July 20, 2017
Most, however, reacted with either surprise or sarcasm.

I could use a lot less OJ right now.— Jeffrey Wright (@jfreewright) July 20, 2017
OJ says he took class "Alternatives to Violence" in prison-bet Nicole & Ron wish he would've taken that class 25 yrs ago. #OJSimpsonParole— Gretchen Carlson (@GretchenCarlson) July 20, 2017
Let’s be real, OJ is in prison now for killing Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman. Because of that I thought they’d never let him out.— Touré (@Toure) July 20, 2017
Why is fact that he was found liable for two murders in a civil trial not an "aggravating factor" in this parole hearing?— Harry Shearer (@theharryshearer) July 20, 2017
OJ today; "Nobody's ever accused me of pulling a weapon on them." Nobody who's still alive.— Harry Shearer (@theharryshearer) July 20, 2017
OJ: "lived a conflict-free life"--but we heard Nicole's 911 calls, the baseball bat through her car windshield.— Harry Shearer (@theharryshearer) July 20, 2017
OK then... Black folks get ready for random white folks to start conversations w/ you like "CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS OJ THING?" #OJSimpsonParole— W. Kamau Bell (@wkamaubell) July 20, 2017
OJ is free. After-party at the Kardashians.— Joseph Kahn (@JosephKahn) July 20, 2017
More to come ...
