The late night hosts joked about O.J. Simpson being granted parole during their Thursday night opening monologues. Watch the videos below of Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel making fun of Simpson’s upcoming prison release.

As Gossip Cop reported, the former footballer player was granted parole on Thursday less than nine years into his 33-year prison sentence for armed robbery and kidnapping. He has been imprisoned at Nevada’s Lovelock Correctional Center since 2008 after he and a few others held two sports memorabilia dealers at gunpoint in their Las Vegas hotel. Hours after the news of Simpson’s early release, the late night hosts had plenty to say about Thursday’s ruling during their monologues.

“Just a heads up before we start,” Fallon told his “Tonight Show” audience. “If any of you call an Uber any time soon, you might want to make sure it’s not a white Ford Bronco. Just be careful.” He added, “That’s right, O.J. Simpson was officially granted parole today and could be out of jail by October. When asked what he plans to do first, he said, ‘Well, catch up on all those shows about O.J. I heard they’re great!'” Fallon continued, “O.J. actually video-conferenced into his parole hearing today, because the board was 120 miles away from his prison. Not a good sign when even the parole board are scared to be near him.”

And during Kimmel’s monologue, the talk show host offered, “As you’ve probably heard by now, this afternoon Nevada State parole board unanimously voted to grant O.J. parole. He’s served nine years for armed robbery. And O.J. Simpson, for those of you too young to remember, is the second most embarrassing person associated with the Kardashian family, right after Scott Disick.”

The “Jimmy Kimmel Love” host further cracked, “He could be released by October 1st. He’ll be picked up from the Lovelock correctional facility via helicopter and flown directly to the set of ‘Dancing With The Stars’ and ‘Bachelor in Paradise,’ whichever one is in production.” Watch the videos below of the late night host making fun of O.J. Simpson being granted parole!
