Kim Kardashian is just one of many celebrities who jumped on Twitter to express their feelings on Casey Anthony‘s not guilty verdict.
Kim responded, “WHAT!!!!???!!!! CASEY ANTHONY FOUND NOT GUILTY!!!! I am speechless!!!”
Critics were quick to remind Kardashian of the similarities between Anthony’s verdict and Simpson’s 16 years ago.
“It’s like when your dad helped get OJ off,” said one critic.
In 1995, Kim’s father, Robert Kardashian, served as one of OJ Simpson‘s defense lawyers. The two men first met in the early 1970s and became close friends. When Simpson, now 63, was tried for murdering his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman, Robert Kardashian reactivated his license to practice law to aid in Simpson’s defense.
Simpson also stayed in the Kardashian house in the days following the murders. At the time, Kim was 13 years old. Simpson was found not guilty, but in 2008 was sent to prison for robbery, kidnapping and conspiracy.
“Reading the comments here & its nuts people think just bc I was close to the OJ trial I can’t have my own opinion on the Casey Anthony case?”
How do you like her now?
