Oscar Pistorius Allegedly Took Acting Lessons Before Murder Trial
The Oscar Pistorius story is a crazy one. From being the first double leg amputee to participate in the Olympic games, to being a man on trial for murder, there hasn’t been any shortage of drama in his life for many years.
Pistorius concedes that he shot his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, on February 14, 2013. However, he claims that he thought she was intruder in his home.
He now faces 25 years to life if convicted of the murder charges against him.
Throughout his trial Pistorius has gained attention for his distraught actions in the court room. He even became physically ill at one point during graphic testimony.
But one South African writer isn’t buying it. Jani Allan not only thinks he’s lying about shooing Steenkamp, she thinks he even went as far to take acting lessons before his trial.
Check out this excerpt from an open letter Allan wrote to the former sprinter (via Daily Maverick):
“I have it from a reliable source that you are taking acting lessons for your days in court. Your coach has an impossible task…
Oscar, I look at you mewling and puking in the witness stand. You truly represent everything that the West loathes about white South Africans who live extravagant lives in their expensive laagers. Your constant and preposterously ridiculous statement that you thought it wasn’t Reeva trapped in the bathroom, but an intruder, opens yet another can of haricots. The implication of this is that it would have been more acceptable to shoot an intruder the way you did. Execution from behind a closed door.”
There’s no word yet as to whether these claims will be investigated.
If Pistorius is guilty (like many think he is), it wouldn’t be shocking to learn that he took acting lessons. His story is hard to believe at best, and if someone is willing to kill another human being, they’re definitely willing to do whatever it takes to cover it up.
