LOS ANGELES, Calif. (FOX 11) - A decades-old interview between sports commentator Roy Firestone and O.J. Simpson is featured in ESPN's new 'OJ: Made in America' documentary and many people are criticizing the interview.
In the interview, Firestone asks Simpson about an incident in 1988 when Simpson beat his wife, Nicole Brown Simpson.
The interview was part of ESPN's 'Sports Look' and took place a little more than two years before Nicole Brown Simpson was murdered.
After the interview aired in the documentary, there was a firestorm against Firestone.
Firestone defended himself, saying he was conned by a con-man. He also says there are 'cringe worthy' moments for him watching the interview now, and he would take it back if he could.
