Nicole Brown Simpson's sister is speaking out after Kim Kardashian West made a controversial joke about O.J. Simpson while hosting Saturday Night Live over the weekend.

In her opening monologue, Kardashian West, 40, joked that her late father Robert Kardashian Sr. — who served as one of the defense attorneys in Simpson's trial for the murders of his ex-wife Nicole, 35, and her friend Ron Goldman, 25 — was the reason that she met her "first Black person."

"Wanna take a stab in the dark at who it was?" Kardashian West quipped at the time. "It's sort of weird to remember the first Black person you met, but O.J. does leave a mark. Or several. Or none at all. I still don't know."

  Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Leave Hotel Together Before Her SNL Hosting Debut Kim Kardashian and ex Kanye West were seen exiting a New York City hotel together hours before she is set to host Saturday Night Live for the first time.On the morning of Saturday, Oct. 9, Kim Kardashian and ex Kanye West were photographed leaving a New York City hotel together hours before she is set to host SNL for the first time. The rapper followed the reality star, dressed in a full-length hot pink coat, and the two got into a waiting car as dozens of fans and photographers crowded around them. An eyewitness told E! News that Kanye arrived at the hotel earlier that morning and that he and Kim drove to NBC Studios, after which he returned to the hotel without her.

Now, in a statement provided to PEOPLE, Tanya Brown says that Kardashian West's joke — which was made in October during Domestic Violence Awareness Month — was "beyond inappropriate and insensitive."

"If she and her family loved Nicole so much as they claimed, this was done in very poor taste," Tanya says. "I think the taste of writers at SNL was beyond inappropriate and insensitive as was the reaction in the audience."

"Regarding Kim, I believe everyone has a choice to control what they speak on," she continues. "She easily could have said, 'This is inappropriate and disrespectful to everyone! Not only for Nicole and Ron, but for all victims of domestic violence who were murdered by their significant others."

Kim Kardashian West on ‘Saturday Night Live’: TV Review

  Kim Kardashian West on ‘Saturday Night Live’: TV Review It’s hard to believe it, but despite my fervent prayers (God, are you there?), I’m thinking about the Kardashians again. Last time—and I really thought it would be the last time for me—I wrote about the series finale of Keeping Up With the Kardashians and how it marked the end of an era but not necessarily the end of America’s unofficial royal family. The Kardashians — Kris, Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, Kendall, Kylie — built their empire by strategically rebranding and never straying too far from the spotlight. Disappearing is not in their future, but I didn’t think I’d be back here so soon.

Nicole and Goldman were fatally stabbed on June 12, 1994. Though Simpson was acquitted of the double murders in October 1995, the former NFL star was deemed liable for the deaths in 1997 in a civil case brought by the two victims' families.

Since her sister's death, Tanya — a life coach and speaker — has been outspoken about domestic violence.

"When I speak and talk about domestic violence, it is merely for educational purposes, not for laughter or comedy," Tanya tells PEOPLE. "I only share what has been made public about Nicole. I would never share anything private of Nicole's life."

"After 27 years, can't we move past the murders and focus on domestic violence? Since COVID, statistics have skyrocketed. It is critical, so no more Nicoles and Rons happen," she continues.

Adds Tanya: "Our loss, Browns and Goldmans, should not be portrayed as a comedy — family or non-family. Loss, tragedy, murder, crime should not be portrayed as comedy. Everyone has a choice!"

In 2019, on the anniversary of Nicole and Goldman's murders, Tanya told PEOPLE that she hopes her sister will be remembered as the good mother, daughter and sibling she was.

"Everybody equates Nicole with being a domestic violence victim, which she was, beyond belief," Tanya said at the time. "Her death doesn't define who she was."

"I hope that people get the fact that Nicole and Ron were human beings who walked this earth. They were good people," she added.
