The Charleston RiverDogs, a minor-league baseball team in South Carolina and Class A affiliate of the New York Yankees, have removed an “OJ Trial Night” promotion that was slated for late May.

The decision came in response to backlash the team received for announcing the promo, which was going to highlight both O.J. Simpson’s 1995 murder trial and orange juice.

Simpson, a former NFL star running back and comic actor, was acquitted of criminal murder charges in October 1995. He was tried on two counts of murder for the slashing deaths of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ron Goldman.

The RiverDogs’ spin on the trial centered around orange juice. In their promotional description, the RiverDogs wrote:

“The trial of the century gets a juicy new spin. We will finally receive the verdict that everyone has been waiting for … pulp or no pulp?.”
