Vanessa Bryant Slams Rapper Meek Mill For Tasteless Reference To Kobe Bryant’s Death

It’s been a little over a year since Vanessa Bryant was forced to bury her husband, NBA basketball player Kobe Bryant and their daughter Gigi. Still, in spite of this, Vanessa Bryant has been forced to endure publicly made accusations and scrutiny by her mother. Worse, she’s now having to address a tasteless reference to her husband’s tragic death made by rapper Meek Mill.

In his latest song, Meek Mill makes a cheap reference to Kobe’s death.

For his latest track titled “Don’t Worry (RIP Kobe)” Mill raps, “If I ever lack, I’m goin’ out with my chopper, it be another Kobe.” It didn’t take long for the garish line to gain the ire of Twitter users and for Vanessa Bryant to address it publicly.

In a statement made to her Instagram Stories, Vanessa slammed Mill for the lyric in his new song which recently leaked online. “I find this line to be extremely insensitive and disrespectful. Period,” Bryant wrote.

“I am not familiar with any of your music, but I believe you can do better than this. If you are a fan, fine, there’s a better way to show your admiration for my husband. This lacks respect and tact.”

In response to the extreme backlash, Mill wrote that he had reached out to Bryant to apologize.

“I apologized to her in private earlier today not to the public … Nothing I say on my page directed to a internet viral moment or the family of a grieving woman! If you care about someone grieving change the subject!”

Vanessa Bryant was forced to publicly grieve the loss of her husband and their daughter Gianna, along with the seven other people, who were killed in a helicopter crash last year that occurred in Calabasas, California.

Vanessa was married to Kobe in 2001 and should have celebrated her 20th wedding anniversary with him this year.
