Kato Kaelin shot to fame when he hid in the guest house while Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman were being murdered in Brentwood, California. Years later, he's in the spotlight again as a character on American Crime Story, but he's not happy about his return to infamy. Kaelin told RadarOnline.com he feels producers are 'using' him and that his portrayal in the new movie is "inaccurate!"

Twenty-two years later he's still a key player in the story, as The People V. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story hits a ratings high. Kaelin, 56, spoke to Radar about the show and even made an off color joke about the death of the two victims.

"The show is very entertaining," Kaelin told Radar. "I think people are going to love it."

Saying that his character is getting more play than he deserves, Kaelin slammed the 10-part series.

"It really isn't that accurate," he told Radar.

Kaelin became a household name for living in the guest house and he told Radar that his amplified presence in the movie is not reflective of what really happened.

"I think they're using me for comedic purposes. I've been saying 'Never has anyone been so famous for doing so little!'"

Kaelin also made an off color joke about the death of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman. When asked if he would be making a cameo in the TV show, as Grease star Didi Conn did in Grease Live, he quipped, "I don't remember there being a double murder in Grease Live!" Kaelin then quickly backtracked, saying there was "nothing funny" about the murders.
