OJ Simpson Dies at 76 After Battle with Prostate Cancer

Former NFL star and actor OJ Simpson passed away at the age of 76 on Thursday after a battle with prostate cancer. Simpson, known for his involvement in the NFL and Hollywood, gained worldwide notoriety for his 1994 televised police chase in his white Bronco and subsequent 1995 murder trial.

The news of Simpson’s death was announced on the morning show “The View,” where co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg, Sunny Hostin, Joy Behar, and Alyssa Farah Griffin discussed the impact of his life and the infamous trial. Goldberg informed the audience of the breaking news, stating that Simpson had been battling cancer.

Hostin, a former prosecutor, reflected on the trial, describing it as the “trial of the century.” She recalled being on a date during the iconic Bronco chase and expressed her belief that the acquittal of Simpson was a great injustice. Behar questioned Hostin about the specific injustice she referred to, to which Hostin clarified that it was the criminal trial where Simpson was found not guilty.

Griffin, who was only five years old at the time, shared her memories of her parents watching the Bronco chase and the impact it had on her. She expressed hope that Simpson’s death would bring some peace to the families of the victims and acknowledged the miscarriage of justice that occurred. Hostin emphasized the importance of remembering the victims, mentioning their names, Ron Goldman and Nicole Simpson, and acknowledging the profound loss their families continue to experience.
