Nicole and Ron tragically died in a double homicide in the summer of 1994.
The O.J. Simpson trial was one of the first ever televised cases in US court history. It took the media by storm and divided a nation.
The Kardashian family played a big role in the case.

The patriarch of the Kardashian family, Robert Kardashian Sr., was one of O.J.’s best friends, and he served on his defense team known as the “Dream Team.”
Robert represented the former NFL star alongside Robert Shapiro and Johnnie Cochran.
Caitlyn (formerly Bruce) and Kris Jenner attended the trial in support of Nicole’s family.
During an appearance on “Big Brother VIP” in Australia, the 72-year-old opened up about how the Nicole’s murder and the trial impacted her family.
First thing’s first, Caitlyn believes O.J. committed the heinous crimes, and has proof he had ill-intent toward his former wife.

“Obviously he did it and he got away with it,” the Olympian said. “And at one point he even told Nicole, ‘I’ll kill you and get away with it because I’m O.J. Simpson.’”
Caitlyn continued to detail the trial saying, “It was an extraordinarily difficult time. Nicole was Kris’ best friend, had been for a long time. I was at Nicole’s house two days before the murder.”
The reality TV star then divulged that Nicole told Kris what O.J. had said to her.
“Then Nicole, you know, relayed that onto Kris at one point and unfortunately she was right,” Caitlyn recalled.
She detailed the regret Kris had upon hearing the “Not Guilty” verdict.

“We’re watching what’s going on in the other room, and even after the not guilty verdict, the first thing Kris turns around at me and goes, ‘We should’ve listened to Nicole, she was right right from the beginning,’” she said.
Obviously it’s not lost on Caitlyn that this is a really sad moment in her life, her ex-wife’s life and in history.
O.J.’s name recently came up during Kim Kardashian’s ‘SNL’ monologue and while it landed well with the audience, it didn’t quite land well with Nicole’s family.
In the monologue Kim says, “It’s because of him [Robert Kardashian Sr.] that I met my first black person. Want to take a stab in the dark at who it was? I know it’s sort of weird to remember the first black person you met, but O.J. does leave a mark… or several or none at all, I still don’t know.”
Obviously, this was a tongue-in-cheek play on the murder trial and murders of Nicole and Ron.
Nicole’s sister, Tanya Brown, spoke out about Kim’s opening monologue in a statement to People.
“If she and her family loved Nicole so much as they claimed, this was done in very poor taste,” Tanya says. “I think the taste of writers at SNL was beyond inappropriate and insensitive as was the reaction in the audience.”
“Regarding Kim, I believe everyone has a choice to control what they speak on,” she continues. “She easily could have said, ‘This is inappropriate and disrespectful to everyone! Not only for Nicole and Ron, but for all victims of domestic violence who were murdered by their significant others.”
