Caitlyn Jenner Reacts to Backlash Over O.J. Simpson Message


Though no criminal charges were filed against her, a number of lawsuits came out of the fatal crash, including from a third and fourth driver as well as Kim’s stepchildren. Caitlyn settled with Jessica Steindorff—a driver of one of the four cars involved—in December 2015 and with Kim’s stepchildren in January 2016. Details on these settlements were not publicly disclosed.

The backlash against Caitlyn came after she tweeted on April 11, “Good Riddance,” following the death of O.J. at the age of 76 from cancer. Users were quick to compare the death from Caitlyn’s car crash with the 1994 killing of Nicole and Ron—whose deaths O.J was arrested for before ultimately being found not guilty.

He was, however, found guilty in a civil case brought by the families of Nicole and Ron and ordered to pay $33.5 million in 1997. A decade later, in September 2007, O.J. released the book If I Did It, which theorized about the murders of Nicole and Ron.
