Chris Darden repping Nipsey Hussle‘s alleged murderer is having repercussions he might not have seen coming, so says the guy’s daughter … who’s now getting harassed.
Jenee Darden — one of Chris’ adult children — posted a statement on IG Sunday, saying she’s been receiving “vile” comments and messages ever since the news broke last week that her dad was serving as Eric Holder‘s defense attorney.
Darden pled not guilty on behalf of Holder after he was charged with murder, but his mere presence in the courtroom took many people aback … as he’d previously served as one of the prosecutors on the O.J. Simpson case, which he lost.
Jenee says there’s been tons of backlash aimed at her because of Chris’ recent decision to rep Holder, which she says is unwarranted … because her father is a grown man and picks the cases he wants to take on. She says she has no say on any of that.
She also says she found about Chris’ involvement in the case like everyone else … scrolling through social media.
More interestingly, Jenee appears to be siding with Nipsey and his grieving family over her own father … saying she grew up in a community similar to Nipsey’s and understands why it’s hit so hard for so many people to lose a mighty figure like him to a senseless murder.
Jenee goes on to say that the folks who are attacking her online should channel their energy toward continuing Nipsey’s legacy by strengthening communities and continuing to uplift one another.
She ends by saying that although she’s not sure how this case will play out, she’ll continue to pray for Nipsey’s family … while also wishing them peace and justice.
