OJ Simpson, one of the most infamous figures in U.S. history, had been battling cancer since as early as February and finally succumbed and passed away on Wednesday.

Despite how controversial OJ Simpson had become over the past 30 years or so, many people were affected by his sudden death, including his loving family.

On social media, ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter would announce OJ Simpson’s death, but he failed to leave out the murder trial he went through back in 1994.

“O.J. Simpson, the former football great who was accused of and ultimately acquitted of the brutal 1994 slayings of his ex-wife and her friend, has died, according to his family,” Schefter wrote on X. “He was 76.”

Many people took to the comment section and quotes to blast Adam Schefter for bringing up that murder trial as his family grieves his death. Not only that, he also used a picture of Simpson while he was fighting for his freedom in court.

OJ Simpson became famous as a two-time All-American from the University of Southern California and the 1968 Heisman Trophy winner.

He would soon become a member of the Buffalo Bills as the No. 1 overall pick in the 1969 NFL/AFL common draft, according to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He rushed for 11,236 yards in 11 NFL seasons, nine with the Bills and two with the 49ers. Simpson led the NFL in rushing four times. He also amassed 14,368 all-purpose yards in 135 games, scoring 76 touchdowns (61 rushing, 14 receiving, and one kick return).

Simpson became infamous in 1994 after he was charged with killing his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ronald Goldman. His nationally televised trial was one of the highest-profile criminal cases in modern American history.

Despite so much evidence, he was controversially acquitted in October 1995.

13 years later, a jury convicted him of 10 counts of armed robbery, kidnapping, and conspiracy, and OJ Simpson was sentenced to 33 years in prison. He would be paroled after nine years and spend the remainder of his days in the Las Vegas area.
