MacKenzie on TikTok had an awkward encounter with the infamous O.J. Simpson this weekend. After posting a video, many followers are responding with words like YUCK.

In a TikTok video which has garnered nearly a million views as of Monday, the 22-year-old is seen recognizing O.J. Simpson in a Las Vegas bar — but the chance meeting takes a weird turn when the 74-year-old gets a little too familiar.

The video begins with MacKenzie motioning for O.J. to join her on camera. 

“Hey,” she is heard yelling. “O.J. baby! He’s out,” she says, motioning to the former NFL running back.

But as she gestures toward the 74-year-old for the camera, he leans in closely and appears to try to kiss MacKenzie.

The post went viral, earning thousands more views than usual for MacKenzie, but she does appear to have commented on the encounter since she posted the video early Sunday morning. 

Her TikTok bio states that she is 22 years old, and that she lives in Las Vegas and in the Pacific northwest.

In the comment section, social media users called O.J.’s attempted kiss embarrassing and creepy. 

“I can’t live with the embarrassment I just got from watching that,” wrote one user. 

“That gave me the creeps,” said another. “I’m embarrassed for you!”

Others poked fun at O.J.’s infamous past — the one-time Heisman Trophy winner was accused of murdering his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman in 1994. Though he was acquitted of the criminal charges, a civil jury found him liable for Ron Goldman’s death and battery against Nicole Brown Simpson in 1997. 

“Has anyone seen my sister? This is the last TikTok she posted,” one user joked. 

“Little does she know… she’s in a life or death situation!” quipped another. 

“O.J., please be careful out there,” wrote one commenter. “They still haven’t caught the real killer!”

Some users criticized MacKenzie for making light of meeting a man they believe is a murderer. 

“That dude murdered and chopped up corpses,” one user said. “I would not chill with him. Y’all think everything in life is a joke until it happens to you.” 

“Seriously!” agreed another TikTok user. “Think about exactly what he did to those people!” 

Other commenters said O.J.’s “creepy” come-on marked a new low for the 74-year-old. 

“He’s corny,” wrote one user. “No relevance. Why is he in the club at that age?” 

O.J. Simpson is Still Controversial

Simpson, who was a top-tier running back and had made the successful transition to comedic acting before Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman’s deaths, has remained a controversial figure in the 26 years since he was accused of murder. 

After being acquitted on the criminal charges and being forced to pay a $33.5 million settlement to Goldman’s family following the civil suit, OJ was convicted in 2008 on kidnapping and robbery charges.

Prosecutors said he led a group of armed men into a Las Vegas hotel and stole sports memorabilia from his career at gunpoint. He was sentenced to a 33-year prison term, but was released on parole in 2017. 

Since then, the former Buffalo Bill has been the subject of controversy for his Twitter presence. The ex-con posts videos regularly, where he talks about football and his personal life, but rarely addresses his past legal troubles. 

O.J. has not commented publicly on his encounter with MacKenzie on TikTok as of Monday.
