Hot takes emerge after O.J. Simpson is granted parole: 'The Juice is Loose!'

Social media erupted on Thursday when news broke that O.J. Simpson had been granted parole after serving nine years in prison for armed robbery.

Simpson's prison sentence was due to a 2007 kidnapping and robbery in Las Vegas, during which the former NFL star reportedly took hundreds of pieces of sports memorabilia from two men. O.J.'s latest court occurrence comes after his infamous role in "The Trial of the Century," when he was acquitted of murdering his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and Ron Goldman.

O.J.'s receiving parole sparked a range of reactions on Twitter, with some praising the parole board decision and others commenting on Simpson's pending freedom with "hide ya kids" rhetoric.

"OJ Simpson has been granted parole," New York Magazine's Yashar Ali wrote via Twitter. "As awful as it is, the board had to follow the law + not consider past behavior he wasn't convicted for."

Others, though, focused on the way in which O.J. will perhaps leave prison:

Simpson could be released on parole as early as Oct. 1.
