Fans of Kobe Bryant have no mercy on documentary filmmaker Abigail Disney who took to social media and shared a lengthy thread where she bashed and called him a rapist.
The Los Angeles Lakers icon and his teen daughter, Gianna, were among the nine people killed in a horrific helicopter crash on Sunday.
Disney decided to back Evan Rachel Wood, who made similar remarks about Kobe. While Wood has deleted the tweet after getting slammed, the Disney heiress has decided to go over the 2003 incident where a 19-year-old woman accused Kobe of sexually assaulting her in a Colorado hotel room.
Kobe apologized for the matter and stated that sex was consensual. Disney wrote almost 30 tweets bashing Kobe.
She said in one: “OK, time to bite the bullet and say something. Thread. If you don’t like it, just stop following. First of all, yes, it IS my business because I’m a woman who has herself been assaulted and spent my life knowing, loving, and feeling for women for whom it’s been so much worse. 1/”
She said in another: “But wow, something about Kobe. Those of us who pointed out the fact of Kobe’s less pleasant past were not saying that what happened was not sad or tragic. It was deeply tragic. But here’s the thing. Once you become a “refugee inside your own body,” it becomes… 13/.”
Fans are destroying Disney for her comments.
One supporter said: “Please respect the fact that his wife and children are in a period of mourning their losses. Please show compassion as that was their father and husband, and they are unfortunate. They do not need to read about hateful, hurtful things. Use your money and voice to spread love and hope to others! 🙏”
Another commenter stated: “This was definitely a bad business decision. We all know the case was dropped and never heard of again. It’s no secret. He apologized and handled his business. Since then, he has been nothing but a great basketball player that retired and an even better entrepreneur and husband and father. Why, when he has just passed along with his daughter in a horrific accident, would you think that this is the appropriate time to bring up something as negative as that. All this did was show the type of person that you are and show how hateful and jealous of what he has become that you are. Regardless of who he was to YOU, Kobe is someone’s son, brother, husband, and father. Your unsympathetic words in an attempt to dim his light are unappreciated, and you should be ashamed of yourself. Peace.”
This fan of the NBA star stated: “Who tf are you to talk bad on a man’s name after he passes? Keep that shit to yourself.and yet you talk about someone that has done so much for his community, for kids, and for the world. You sit on your ass and get that check every month, yet DO NOTHING to do your part to help the people that work for your name. Knowing that cast members are living in their cars, sometimes not having food to eat.”
This sports observer revealed: “You are spoken like a true leach! You’ve done nothing except inheriting money that you did not earn. An entire city is deeply mourning the loss of 9 people, Kobe did a TON for young athletes. I hope your ignorant words hit Disney right in the bank account! I say protest with your wallet! Disney is involved in a lot of ventures, do some research, and stop supporting the hatred!”
This person stepped up for Kobe’s wife and three daughters: “Let him Rest In Peace. Keep your option of him to yourself. He is not here to defend himself. I’m sure you did enough slandering of him when he was alive. His kids will see this. Let them grieve in peace. #mambaforever #mambamentality #mambacita”
Kobe was a controversial figure, fans say he was just human.
