What did O.J. Simpson say to defense attorney Robert Shapiro after the football star learned he was not guilty of double murder?

Shapiro tells Megyn Kelly on the Fox News Channel anchor's first special, which airs on the Fox broadcast network Tuesday at 8 p.m.Along with revealing Simpson's whispered post-verdict comment, Shapiro tells Kelly about the infamous glove that his client was asked to try on in court during the 1995 trial. According to a transcript released by Fox News, Shapiro told Kelly he knew the glove would not fit Simpson because he tried it on first.

"It was a little bit wide in my palm and a little bit long in my fingers," Shapiro told Kelly. "O.J. Simpson has enormous hands and I knew that the glove would not fit him. No question about it. Wouldn’t even be close.” Kelly also asked Shapiro if he felt he was trying on the glove of a murderer.

"I didn't consider it, but it's kind of an eerie thought when you say that," Shapiro said.
