If you want to see something that’s truly disgusting, looking no further than the display of inappropriate white feminism in response to the tragic death of Kobe Bryant. Fans from all over have been expressing their grief and condolences for the loss of Bryant and his oldest daughter, Gigi. While most of the conversation has been about love, a certain and particular minority hijacked this moment of mourning and turned it into a fake virtue signaling admonishment. In the hours after the announcement of Kobe’s death certain reporters pundits, and actresses, noticeably all white women, have dredged up his infamous Colorado sexual assault case.While this is not the time to recount the incident and it’s facts, it must be noted that Kobe Bryant passed away an innocent man.
While that may be the case in real life, certain women who fashion themselves as feminist have swearing up and down that Kobe died a rapist. Examining this part of Kobe’s legacy is fair game, however there is a time and place for everything. Case in point being actress Evan Rachel Wood.
The ‘Frozen’ actress joined in on the Kobe conversation offering up her condolences while mentioning his past rape case. This inappropriate and badly timed tweet prompted immediate backlash and vitriol. One notable figure was fellow actress Kyla Pratt. The two came up together as child stars, so the comment must had hit Pratt in a certain way. Pratt publicly called Woods’ out underneath her initial tweet. Let’s hope all those like Woods who thought it okay to bring up this unfortunate part of Kobe’s life during his memoriam moment get all the attention they’re looking for.
