Kardashian, 40, has been praised for her comedy chops on the NBC sketch show, which saw her take shots at her own family members in her opening monologue. While her jokes about Kanye West, Caitlyn Jenner and her mother’s boyfriend, Corey Gamble, fueled headlines, so did her comments about Simpson, who was acquitted of two counts of murder in the 1994 fatal stabbings of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and Ronald Goldman.
The Kardashian-Jenner family has long been linked to Simpson’s case due to Kardashian’s father, the late Robert Kardashian, being a defense attorney in Simpson’s trial. Meanwhile, Kardashian’s mom, Kris Jenner, was one of Nicole’s close friends.
Speaking to TMZ after Saturday’s episode aired, Nicole’s sister Tanya Brown revealed she found Kardashian’s comments about Simpson’s case “beyond inappropriate and insensitive.”
“My father was and still is such an influence and inspiration to him. I credit him for really opening up my eyes to racial injustice. It’s because of him 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,” Kardashian said during her monologue.
Kardashian put her family – and Simpson – on trial yet again during the episode during a parody courtroom reality series titled “People’s Kourt.” The sketch concluded with Kardashian roasting her family’s first claim to fame by having Keenan Thompson play Simpson, asking her why they don’t keep in touch.
Overall, Tanya called Kardashian’s skits in “poor taste” whether or not they were written by “SNL” producers. TMZ also reports that Tanya is now reconsidering how much the famous family cared about her late sister.
Tanya also was upset by the laughter that broke out by the audience when Simpson was referenced by Kardashian. She also claimed that she feels Kardashian could have nixed the references about her sister’s death from her sketch before going live. In fact, Tanya claims she did that herself when she previously left an appearance on “The Meredith Veira Show.” When Tanya learned “at the last moment” that jurors from the murder trial would also be included on the show, she told the outlet she left and didn’t fulfill her scheduled duties.
