*Well that was quick.
The Smithsonian has given O.J. Simpson’s acquittal suit a big “hell to the no” after announcing today it wants no part of the outfit.
The decision comes one day after a judge approved the donation as the solution to a long court battle between Simpson and Fred Goldman over the clothing. According to the Associated Press, Smithsonian spokeswoman Linda St. Thomas says the suit is not appropriate for the museum’s collection.
The agreement reached Monday between Simpson, Fred Goldman and Simpson’s former sports agent, Mike Gilbert, provided that if the Smithsonian turned it down, they would seek another museum or institution of higher learning.
It was not immediately clear which entity would be offered the suit next.
Simpson wore the suit on Oct. 3, 1995, when he was acquitted of killing his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman.
