“Don’t you think David Schwimmer could have taken an opportunity to meet with the families of the victims?” Tanya Brown says to the Daily Mail
Tanya Brown, the youngest sister of Nicole Brown Simpson, took aim at David Schwimmer over his role in FX’s “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.”
In an interview with the Daily Mail, Brown put Schwimmer on blast for discussing his role as Robert Kardashian with Kardashian’s ex-wife Kris Jenner, but failing to reach out to the victims’ families.
“Well, don’t you think David Schwimmer could have taken an opportunity to meet with the families of the victims if he went out of his way to meet with her?” Brown said, adding that no one from the series ever reached out to her family.
“If anything, they should have at least contacted my mom,” she continued. “If they wanted an accurate account they should have contacted the family. Period.”
She also criticized the network for debuting the series on Feb. 2, the date of her sister’s wedding anniversary.
“It’s all beautifully orchestrated. Nothing happened by coincidence — they thought it all through,” she said. “They just wanted the drama and publicity, but it was completely insensitive to the Nicole’s memory.”
Brown has been vocal about her criticism of Ryan Murphy‘s FX series, which is based on the Jeffrey Toobin book “The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson.”
“People forget that two people got brutally murdered — chopped to pieces — and this is not entertainment,” she previously told ET. “This is not Hollywood.”
