So it looks like Columbus Short was serious about delving into the world of stand-up comedy and apparently, he’s taking the Kevin-Hart-laugh-at-my-pain route. TMZ caught up with the troubled actor the day before he was scheduled to appear in court for a hearing regarding those domestic violence charges. When asked by the cameraman about his expectations for the hearing, he dropped an O.J. Simpson joke…
“If the glove don’t fit, they must acquit! That’s all I got.”
Probably not the best time to make a joke like that, but okay. He didn’t have much to say about how the infamous O.J. Simpson trial transformed media involvement in criminal investigations involving celebrities, but he did discuss the hearing a little bit more.
“I just know that tomorrow we’ll go in there, we’ll knock it out and go back to work.
Switching gears, Columbus also discussed the possibility of returning to “Scandal” if he’s proven innocent in upcoming court proceedings.
“I mean, tomorrow’s never promised. Anything can happen. That’s my family, forever and always.”
The hearing took place on Monday. So far, there has been no word on what became of it. But we will continue to keep you posted as new details emerge.
Watch Columbus’ interview below. Are you interested in seeing him return to “Scandal” at this point or are you already over him being let go?
