Fact Check:

O.J. Simpson spent the final year of his life in a luxury Las Vegas neighborhood in order to be closer to his son Justin and one-year-old granddaughter, according to Daily Mail. Simpson died Wednesday at age 76 following a battle with prostate cancer, the outlet reported.

A Facebook post shows an image of the Las Vegas Monorail, claiming that it is expected to end operations sometime in the next few years. In the image, the monorail has an advertisement for the city and the High Roller Observation Wheel can be seen in the background.

“The Las Vegas monorail is ending operations,” the post reads. “Sources say the closure and dismantling will begin as early as 2028.”

The claim is inaccurate, however. The Las Vegas Monorail posted to X confirming that the claim is fabricated. “The report that the Las Vegas Monorail is winding down operations is 100% inaccurate. The Monorail is operating very successfully and the LVCVA has no plans to cease operations,” the post reads. 

There are no credible news reports to corroborate the claim. (RELATED: Did The Las Vegas Sphere Display A Message That Reads ‘F*** Trump’)

The post was originally posted by an account called Las Vegas Issues, according to Reuters. The account’s bio reads, “Vegas news, memes, and things.”
