Most people are surprised to learn thatChristopher Darden is defendingNipsey Hussle’s alleged killer, Eric Holder. If the name sounds familiar, it’s because he was one of the prosecutors inOJ Simpson’s 1995 trial. Ever since the story broke, he's received backlash from upset Nispey fans. Apparently some of their wrath has been directed at his daughter,Jeneé Darden, who says she’s received “vile comments and messages” since her dad took on the case.
“Like many of you, I found out about my father's involvement in the case while scrolling social media," Jeneé wrote in Twitter statement. “I was not prepared for this backlash that has triggered back memories from the OJ Simpson trial. My father is a grown man and has been a defense attorney for some time. I have no say in the cases he takes on.”
Jeneé went on to express her condolences for the Hussle family adding that she, too, was saddened by the tragic loss. “It hurts deeply when we lose young, talents...Black men like him who are committed to empowering people.” she explained. She also urged his fans to channel that negativity into upholding Nipsey's legacy by “strengthening our communities and lifting up each other.”
