“American Crime Story: The People vs O.J. Simpson” hit the American screens early this month to a great response from viewers and critics alike. However, there are a few people who are not impressed. Alan Dershowitz, who represented O.J. Simpson, has slammed the series for being inaccurate.
Also, Tanya Brown’s rant about David Schwimmer not contacting the family of the deceased for his “homework” only adds fuel to the rumours that the series is just looking for drama and publicity.
Dershowitz believes that there are only three people who know the complete truth about the events of the room in question. These include Simpson himself, Robert Shapiro, and Robert Kardashian with the lie detector. In the scene where Simpson failed the lie detector test Dershowitz asked NY Daily, “How did that get out? Some lawyer clearly violated the lawyer-client privilege to disclose that.”
The series also showed that Dershowitz was hired as a way to shut him. This is because the lawyer was seen suggesting that the footballer might actually be guilty. Dershowitz points out that this is not true. According to NY Daily, he has slammed this strategy as ridiculous.
“The idea that I was hired in order to shut me up is just totally ridiculous,” said Dershowitz. “I was hired because O.J. Simpson wanted an appellate lawyer and I was hired because Bob Shapiro was afraid O.J. Simpson was going to fire him and he wanted to put together a team that would persuade O.J. Simpson to keep him on.”
That is not the end of it. Tanya Brown, sister of Nicole Brown Simpson, has slammed actor David Schwimmer for his lack of effort on the role in the series. Nicole Brown Simpson’s youngest sister is mad that Schwimmer did not reach out to the victims’ families while working on Robert Kardashian’s character.
The Wrap informs that Brown felt that Schwimmer should have at least contacted their mother in preparation for the role. “Well, don’t you think David Schwimmer could have taken an opportunity to meet with the families of the victims if he went out of his way to meet with her?” Brown said. “If anything, they should have at least contacted my mom. If they wanted an accurate account they should have contacted the family. Period.”
The worst part in this circumstance is that the series debuted on the date of the late Nicole Brown Simpson’s wedding anniversary.
