Fox wants to cut the juice to The O.J. Simpsons, a decidedly un-P.C., decade-too-late parody on Broadcaster.com. Fox has demanded that the videos be removed, but they’re still available—for now. The clips open with an O.J.-ified Homer driving home in a white Ford Bronco (with the cops in pursuit). There’s one segment called “If I Did It,” which lampoons Fox’s own botched plan to air a TV special with the real O.J. discussing how he would have killed his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman if he had done it.
