Kardashian West later pivoted to father, Robert Kardashian, and discussed meeting Simpson for the first time. Robert Kardashian helped defend Simpson in court after he was accused of killing his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson.
While discussing her aspirations in the legal field, Kardashian West said: "My father was and still is such an influence and inspiration to me, and I really credit him with opening my eyes to racial injustice. It's because of him that I met my first Black person."
