Boris Johnson said he felt like OJ Simpson as he struggled to pull on a pair of gloves.
The PM was filmed making the bizarre comment during a visit to a coronavirus vaccination centre in Wales.
He was referring to the moment in Simpson’s murder trial when the US actor and sports star had difficulty putting on gloves thought to have been used in the killing of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ronald Goldman.
Simpson was cleared of murder following the 1995 trial, with his lawyer, Johnnie Cochran, focusing on the gloves as one of the key pieces of evidence.
“If it doesn’t fit, you must acquit,” he told the jury.
Two years after Simpson’s 1995 acquittal, a civil court jury found him liable for the deaths of his ex-wife and Goldman, and ordered he pay their survivors 33.5 million US dollars.
