Caitlyn Jenner posts brutal two-word response after death of OJ Simpson

Caitlyn Jenner posts brutal two-word response after death of OJ Simpson

OJ Simpson has died at the age of 76, his family has announced.

Caitlyn Jenner has posted a two-word response after the death of OJ Simpson.

The 74-year-old's ex-wife Kris Jenner was a close friend of Simpson and his late wife Nicole Brown Simpson.

Kris was married to OJ's attorney Robert Kardashian Sr., who died of esophageal cancer in 2003.

OJ's family announced today (11 April) that the former NFL star passed away at the age of 76 on 10 April after a cancer diagnosis.

"On April 10th, our father, Orenthal James Simpson, succumbed to his battle with cancer," a statement read.

"He was surrounded by his children and grandchildren. During this time of transition, his family asks that you please respect their wishes for privacy and grace."


Simpson was well-known for his NFL career with the Buffalo Bills, but he also featured in a few films and TV shows, such as Roots and The Naked Gun series.

In 1994, Simpson was charged with the murders of Nicole and her friend Ron Goldman in 1994.

The American football player, who was a 1985 Hall of Famer, was the prime suspect in the case.

Both Brown and Goldman were found dead at Brown's LA home and Simpson was arrested and charged soon after.

The likes of Robert Shapiro, Johnnie Cochran and Robert Kardashian Sr famously represented him in the televised court case which was watched around the world.

Despite being found not guilty in 1995, Simpson was later found liable in 1997 for the 'wrongful deaths' of Goldman and Brown and ordered to pay Goldman's family $33.5 million (£26m) in damages.

And Jenner has issued a response to the news of Simpson's passing, simply saying: "Good Riddance."

Now, it seems Jenner has been rather outspoken about OJ in the past, saying that she believes he 'got away' with the murders.

"Obviously he did it, and he got away with it, and at one point he even told Nicole, 'I'll kill you and get away with it 'cause I'm O.J. Simpson,'" Jenner said on Big Brother VIP.

Caitlyn added: "We were at the courthouse. We're watching what's going on in the other room, and even after the not guilty verdict, the first thing Kris turns around to me and goes, 'We should have listened to Nicole. She was right from the beginning'."

Simpson was later jailed for the armed robbery after leading five men into a confrontation with two sports memorabilia dealers in Las Vegas in 2008.

After serving nine years in prison, he was released in 2017.
