She was talked into getting a haircut because people were so obsessed with her image, but then that ended up backfiring even more.

There was also a moment when Clark's cashier at the grocery store said, "Uh oh, I guess the defense is in for one hell of a week, huh?” because she was purchasing tampons.

Everyone was shocked at how cruel people were to Marcia Clark.

Strangers on the internet felt compelled to apologize to Marcia Clark on behalf of the rest of humanity.

And for everyone who ever mistreated her.

More than anything else, the trials and tribulations Marcia was going through resonated with people on Twitter.

And they expressed sympathy for her character.

Twenty years after the O.J. Simpson murder trial happened in real life, the internet is calling Marcia Clark a hero.
