Sacha Baron Cohen Interviewed OJ Simpson

Sacha Baron Cohen's "Who Is America?" delivered just one of two highly anticipated celebrity guests in the hilarious and shocking finale Sunday night.

Gio switched topics to Brown Simpson's murder, saying, "We want you to be 100 percent truthful how you got away with it".

Entertainment Weekly reported that Simpson was unaware that he was being interviewed by the comedian, and instead believed he was sitting down with Gio Monaldo, a playboy and fashion photographer.

"Wait, I didn't kill nobody", Simpson retorted, laughing, to which Cohen tongue-in-cheek exclaimed back, "No I didn't either, I didn't either!" That is, until Baron Cohen made a stabbing motion to the woman's neck, jogging her memory. However, that didn't stop Baron Cohen from continuing to push Simpson on the topic, and the resulting interview is every bit as cringeworthy as you would imagine. "We had been divorced and separated for two years".

Since its premiere, Who Is America has presented interview after uncomfortable interview with everything from Congressmen promoting toddlers with guns to that food critic who thought he liked cannibalism.

When the woman left the room, Simpson told Monaldo that she was gorgeous, and Cohen's character agreed, but added "sometimes I want to kill her".

"Maybe I send her on a bungee jump. oops, the cord!"

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

Cohen then gave Simpson a high-five and continued to joke about the ways he'd like to murder his girlfriend, and then alluded to having killed his fictional ex-wife. Monaldo fails to elicit a confession from Simpson, who says that he "didn't "get away" with nothing".

Gio asks to be introduced to Simpson's defense lawyer, Johnnie Cochran (who died in 2005), and Simpson says, "I would have to introduce you in the afterlife".
