Kim Kardashian Upset Over Verdict

Kim Kardashian expresses her anger over the Casey Anthony verdict. Does she have a right to be so upset?

Kim Kardashian upset over Casey Anthony verdict

Twitter celebrity Kelly Oxford summed it up quite nicely with a simple tweet after a jury found Casey Anthony not guilty of killing her daughter, Caylee Anthony, in 2008.

"You know who's going to benefit from Caylee's death? Baez's kids, when they become the next Kardashians."

Oxford was referring to Anthony's main defense attorney, Jose Baez. Robert Kardashian -- father to Kourtney, Khloe and Kim Kardashian -- was on the legal team that defended former NFL star O.J. Simpson in his 1994 murder trial.

Of course, the Kardashian sisters didn't achieve fame until several years after the Simpson trial -- and their father's death -- but the tweet does make an interesting point: Should Kim Kardashian be so up in arms about the Anthony trial when her own father defended a man that many still consider to be the true killer of Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman?

Kardashian has certainly followed the trial closely over the past several weeks -- and she's loudly proclaimed her disdain for both Anthony and the jury.

"WHAT!!!!???!!!! CASEY ANTHONY FOUND NOT GUILTY!!!! I am speechless!!!" she wrote.

The similarities between the Simpson case and the Anthony case are not lost on Kardashian, though. She later expressed her anger over those who questioned her feelings.

"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?"

Kardashian is certainly welcome to her opinion -- after all, everyone seems to have an opinion on this case. We just can't help but wonder how she would feel if her father was the one defending Anthony.

Robert Kardashian was not on OJ's original legal team. I will never forget watching every minute of that trial and the announcers stated Robert Kardashian was being brought onto the legal team, otherwise he would have been called to testify against OJ. That speaks the message R. Kardashian knew what OJ had done - as the trial continued it became obvious R.K may have been involved and helped OJ commit the crimes. All along they said there were 4 men seen at the location at the time of the crime. Watch the video of the jury proclaiming OJ "NOT GUILTY" - look at Robert Kardashian's face as the verdict is read, he is in disbelieve and totally surprised at the not guilty verdict. OJ will get his on his final day on this earth.

She was only a child in '94. Her father was the lawyer, not her. You media people are brainless!
