Keeping Up With The Kardashians star Kim Kardashian found herself on the receiving end of some very public backlash yesterday, all over the Casey Anthony verdict.
Moments after the
disgusting shocking not guilty verdict came in the Florida case yesterday, majority of the public were incredibly outraged and many compared the results of the case to that of the now infamous 1995 O.J. Simpson verdict.
The irony of the situation was lost on poor Kimmie whose father, the late Robert Kardashian, happened to be one of OJ’s defense attorneys who got him off the hook. Kimmie took to her twitter page to voice her opinions. “WHAT!!!!???!!!! CASEY ANTHONY FOUND NOT GUILTY!!!! I am speechless!!!” tweeted Kim. “I am truly sick over the Casey Anthony verdict! So if the courts don’t believe she is guilty then who do they think killed this little baby?” she added.
Immediately after making her tweets, Kim received some very nasty and negative replies from many who felt she should not be commenting on the case due to her dad’s involvement in the OJ case. “ME TOO!! ITS LIKE WHEN YOUR DAD HELPED GET O.J. OFF!!” was one of the more popular responses made by a twitter user to Kim’s statement of being “speechless.”
Kimmie then tweeted, “Reading the comments here &its nuts people think just bc I was close to the OJ trial I can’t have my own opinion on the Casey Anthony case?” To which a
genius twitter user @MattHelgeson replied, “To be fair I don’t think you should have opinions about anything, not just this case.” Kimmie took the hint and stopped tweeting about the case all together.
Meanwhile, other reality stars were also outraged by the verdict. Below are some of those tweets –
Bethenny Frankel – “I’m so disgusted by the verdict that I’m almost consumed by it.”
Ramona Singer – “A very sad day that justice was not served for Caylee. Please let that poor little baby rest in peace.”
Caroline Manzo – “The defense team should show some kind of respect for this poor baby. Now is not the time for arrogance….. Jackass”
Teresa Giudice – “So insane to be in FL w Gia when Casey Anthony verdict comes out… As a mom of 4 beautiful girls, I just can’t… #disgusting #RIPCaylee”
Melissa Gorga – “Shame on you Casey… Bye….”
Royce Reed – “My what a works we live in… Nancy Grace bout 2go OFF!!! I honestly didn’t think murder 1 but def manslaughter. Wow! Only Guilty of lying!”
Kyle Richards – “So exactly WHO IS responsible for dumping Caylee’s lifeless body away like trash? nobody?”
Jill Zarin – “I can NOT believe Casey Anthony was found NOT GUILTY! What..the glove didn’t fit? The is terrible. I am SHOCKED.”
What’s sad is that when this is all said and done, Casey will end up wealthier than ever with the paid interviews, million dollar book deal, made for TV movie and of course somewhere down the line perhaps her own reality show. In fact an offer to star in a porn movie has already been made to her. Disgusting times we live in these days. As for Kim, she shouldn’t be held responsible for her father’s actions, but perhaps she should have had some tact and stayed away from the issue.
TELL US – DOES KIM DESERVE BACKLASH FOR SHARING HER OPINION ON THE CASE? WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE CASEY VERDICT? DID SHE GET AWAY WITH MURDER?
