Everyone is talking about the Kentucky Derby Winner Medina Spirit after it was revealed the horse failed a drug test, and O.J. Simpson is getting in on the action!
The 73-year-old former running back took to his favorite social media outlet -- Twitter -- to deliver his stance on the matter.
Over the weekend, the race organizers, Churchill Downs, were reportedly in the process of testing a second sample taken from the winning horse. If the additional test comes back dirty, then the Kentucky Derby will strip the title and the prize money.
Now, O.J. Simpson is weighing in and taking a shot at Lance Armstrong in the process.
Turning the camera on himself, the ex-football star addressed the controversy on Monday.
Revealing that he started his day as usual by "scrolling" the news, O.J. Simpson said, "In sports, it's all about Bob Baffert and the Kentucky Derby."
Admitting, "I don't know if he did it on purpose," that didn't stop the former pro-athlete from fiercely defending the trainer while firing a shot at Lance Armstrong.

FYI -- the famed cyclist reportedly tested positive for steroids four times during his first Tour de France in 1999 win but was never suspended.
"I do NOT see Bob Baffert like Lance Armstong," O.J. stated. "I think if there is elevated levels of that substance in the horse's system it was done inadvertently."
Calling Medina Spirit's trainer a "stand-up guy," O.J. Simpson added, "I don't know if they should let him run in the Preakness or not" and said, "I hope it turns out good for him."
He then went into a lengthy tangent about Liz Cheney.
His caption for the video made it seem like O.J. Simpson knew his views would collect controversy. "To dislike doesn’t mean to disrespect," he wrote.
O.J. Simpson has been flocking to Twitter to discuss real-world matters lately.
Along with the Kentucky Derby scandal, the ex-NFL star addressed convicted murderer Derek Chauvin and LeBron James' controversial Ma'Khia Bryant shooting tweet.
