  • Sacha Baron Cohen says he and guest O.J. Simpson are 'ladykillers' on Who Is America? finale

The prank looked to get OJ to confess his alleged involvement with the killing of his wife, which he repeatedly express he had nothing to do with it.

Former congressman Barney Frank and disgraced former football star O.J. Simpson were among Sacha Baron Cohen's targets in the final episode of Showtime's Who Is America?

Simpson was unaware he was being interviewed by the comedian, according to Entertainment Weekly, and instead believed he was sitting down with Gio Monaldo, a playboy and fashion photographer. Gio explains to his girlfriend Christina that Simpson, who he calls a "women's rights activist", was a Buffalo Bill and appeared in the "Naked Gun" films. When "Gio's" girlfriend feigns to not recognize OJ Simpson, Gio makes a stabbing motion, in a clear reference to the murders that Simpson was accused of. But Simpson doesn't particularly do that, mostly laughing and saying "Stop!", and responding to the question about "that night" with "Well, first of all, she wasn't my wife. I want to send her on a private helicopter and throw her over the Grand Canyon - oopsie daisy!" He gives Simpson a high five, before Simpson says "Stop", laughing.

Gio then grills Simpson about "how you got away with it" after saying his ex-wife died under unusual circumstances. "We got something in common". You kill two silly people and suddenly you're O.J. the murderer.

Simpson yet again professes "I didn't kill anybody", but continues to laugh it off and joke with Cohen's character.

"I join a long list of American public personalities who have fallen victim to the evil, exploitative, sick "humor" of the British "comedian" Sacha Baron Cohen", she wrote in a lengthy Facebook statement.

Cohen has disguised himself as different characters during the season and has gone after big names including Ted Koppel, Bernie Sanders, Roy Moore and Georgia politician Jason Spencer who was forced to resign after Cohen, who was portraying an Israeli military officer convinced him to shout racial slurs during counterterrorism strategy training. "We had been divorced", he said. "What, you did no longer abolish him too, did you?"

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.

Sacha Baron Cohen: you'll laugh, you'll cringe, you'll wonder why justice is so rarely served.
