It Will Have Everything But the Murder Weapon

It's undeniable. OJ Simpson is sooooo hot again these days, you guys. Just check out this all-white OJ snapback.

And just a week after the Juice learned he was headed towards parole this fall, arrives the why-didn't-we-think-of-this news that an OJ museum is going to open in LA next month.

This won't be a structure to rival the Broad or trick tourists away from the Getty. It's a five-day pop-up coming to Coagula Curatorial Gallery in the city's Chinatown, where past exhibits celebrated the works of such non-murderers-of-people as Emma Sulkowicz and April Bey.

This being said, the pop-up will be a bullseye for any raging follower of OJ's legacy of playing professional football and killing friends and loved ones. We're talking bootleg "Free OJ" shirts. And OJ chase watches. And pop-culture paraphernalia depicting Judge Ito. And yes, a white 1994 Bronco. No, not the white Bronco. Just a white Bronco.

The collection of over 300 OJ-related items comes from Adam Papagan. When Papagan isn't turning OJ-related swag into art shows, he stays busy giving people OJ-tours in his native Brentwood. OJ has been pretty good to this guy, it appears.

The exhibit will also pay respects to Simpson's alleged victims, Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman. Because otherwise, the whole thing might only look like some kind of sensational tribute to an alleged murderer that milks terrible tragedy for attention and financial gain in a sick country obsessed with murder and celebrity. Or something.

Hadley Tomicki lives in Los Angeles. He is probably going nowhere on the 10 Freeway this very second.
