Darden also talks the current landscape of pop culture.
It’s been over two decades since former NFL star O.J. Simpson was tried and acquitted for the murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman, but former prosecutor Christopher Darden still has some things he’d like to clear up about the case.
This year’s dramatized FX series The People Vs. O.J. Simpson, as well as the 5-part ESPN documentary O.J.: Made In America has seemingly breathed new life into the infamous “trial of the century” this year and even given those involved with the high-profile case a new platform to share previously-unknown details about their experiences.
Chris Darden recently appeared on The View to promote his new book titled In Contempt and he opened up about everything from supposedly hearing of an O.J. confession, to the never-ending debate over “the glove,” to how things played out for him personally following the end of the trial. He also weighed in briefly on the recent acquittal of the Baltimore police officers involved with the controversial arrest of Freddie Gray and what his reaction is to seeing the outcome of O.J. trial brought back to the forefront and played out in pop culture today.
Hear what he had to say in the video clip below.
