Nicole Brown Simpson's Family Is Concerned About American Crime Story… But Cuba Gooding, Jr. Has THIS To Say About The Show
For one thing, the families of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman — whom O.J. Simpson was famously acquitted of murdering back in 1994 — are afraid that the FX show won't respect their lost loved ones, especially considering the victims won't even be portrayed.
Nicole's sister Tanya Brown recently spoke to People about her concerns, saying:
"They didn't take the families into consideration. Who is defending my sister?"
Ron's father, Fred Goldman, also told the publication that he was worried the upcoming drama would affect the public's opinion of the actual events, saying:
"You are going to have people basing their beliefs on a movie. Last time I checked, we don't rely on movies for facts."
We can't even imagine what they've been through, so obviously their concerns are completely valid.
With that said, Cuba Gooding, Jr., who plays the scandalized sports star in the limited series, told E! News that his intentions for taking the part were purely artistic, saying:
