O.J. Simpson has a message for Bill Cosby: Watch your back in prison. Simpson told TMZ that “rapists are frowned upon in prison.”

“I’m sure there will be guys protecting him but they’re gonna have to put him in protective custody … because it takes one nut, ya know?” Simpson said to TMZ while golfing, according to Page Six.

Simpson spent nine years in prison for kidnapping and armed robbery. He was acquitted of murdering his wife, Nicole, and her friend, Ron Goldman. He told TMZ the “problem is the nature of the crime” and that Cosby would be better suited to house arrest.

On Tuesday, Cosby was sentenced to three to 10 years in Pennsylvania state prison for sexually assaulting Andrea Constand at his house in 2004. About 60 women have come forward with allegations against the disgraced comedian, including rape.

“With his health and his age and the nature of the crime, there’s not a warden in this country wants the responsibility of a Bill Cosby,” Simpson said, according to Page Six.
