Thank you.

He is in the same emotional state as O.J. Simpson was at some point in his murder trial.

See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/O._J._Simpson_murder_case

Without further context we don't know which of the many moments during this trial (or during the events that led up to it or during the events that ensued after it) is being referred to.

There is also the more remote possibility that your sentence refers to some other moment in O.J. Simpson's life, as for example, during his career in American football.

Anybody can feel angry and frustrated. It would have to be something more uniquely connected to O.J. Simpson's experiences as known by the public. Otherwise there would be no point to mentioning his name.
