Fox “Acted Responsibly” by Cancelling Simpson Special, Soler Says

"Fox Entertainment acted responsibly by cancelling its planned O.J. Simpson special, sparing the nation the spectacle of a violent batterer discussing or recreating two murders he claims he did not commit," Family Violence Prevention Fund President Esta Soler said today. "It is very good news that millions of outraged viewers and Fox's own affiliates prevailed."

"Now we need to put our energy into efforts to stop violence against women, which is a costly and devastating problem in this country," she added. "On average, three women are murdered by their husbands or boyfriends each day and nearly 500 females over age 12 are victims of rape, attempted rape or sexual assault. We invite Fox to join us in our work to keep women and children safe."


The Family Violence Prevention Fund works to end violence against women and children around the world, because every person has the right to live free of violence. More information is available at www.endabuse.org.
