Simpson, known for his career in the NFL spanning 11 seasons, faced a highly publicised trial in 1995 for the murder of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown, and her friend, Ron Goldman.

Despite the intense scrutiny, Simpson was acquitted of the charges, leading to a divisive and tumultuous legacy.

Responses Reflect A Range Of Emotions And Perspectives

Political commentator Marc Lamont Hill took to X (formerly Twitter) to express his contentious perspective on Simpson's demise. He wrote, "O.J. Simpson was an abusive liar who abandoned his community long before he killed two people in cold blood. His acquittal for murder was the correct and necessary result of a racist criminal legal system. But he’s still a monster, not a martyr."

Caitlyn Jenner, the former partner of Kris Jenner, who had rumoured ties with Simpson, didn't mince words in her response. On X, she wrote, "Good riddance #OJSimpson," expressing her sentiments on Simpson's passing.

Fred Goldman, father of Ron Goldman, one of the victims of the tragic events, shared his thoughts with NBC News. "The only thing I have to say is it’s just further reminder of Ron being gone all these years," he stated. His sentiments were echoed by Ron himself, emphasizing the enduring loss.

Meanwhile, during a recent episode of "The View," co-host Sunny Hostin also reflected on the significance of Simpson's trial, which captured the nation's attention. She remarked, "Can I just say, who doesn’t remember the trial of the century? For me, the tragedy was the injustice: The criminal trial, the fact that he was not found guilty. He was found liable later, civilly."

David Cook, the Goldmans' lawyer too conveyed a sentiment of unfinished justice. Speaking to TMZ, he emphasised, "O.J. died without penance," highlighting the lack of closure for the alleged wrongs committed.
