Controversial comedian Sacha Baron Cohen reportedly paid OJ Simpson $20,000 to appear in a film.

Cohen is best known for his satirical comedy and the British show “Da Ali G Show.” He apparently paid Simpson to appear in a prank for his next film, according to The Daily Mail, outraging the families of Simpson’s victims, to whom the disgraced former football star still owes millions.

A source told The Mail on Sunday that Baron Cohen wore a curly dark wig and black, thick-rimmed glasses to meet Simpson in a Las Vegas hotel room. The source said: “OJ would not even get in the hotel room until he was paid a sackload of cash. There was no way Sacha could have got OJ into the room without paying money.”

Simpson was acquitted of the murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ron Goldman in a 1995 criminal trial, only to be found liable for their deaths in a 1997 civil case.

The revelation that Baron Cohen paid Simpson a reputed [$20,000] has sparked outrage from the families of his victims, who Simpson still owes around £50 million ($70 million) from the civil suit.

Nicole Brown’s sister Tanya is quoted in the report as saying: “Nicole and Ron are two human beings who were brutally murdered. This is not a joke nor is it entertainment. If Sacha makes this a comedic effort his victims will be personified as a joke.”

The Goldman family’s lawyer, David Cook, says any money Simpson was paid should go to Ron’s father Fred, stating, “There is a legal and moral imperative here.”
