Vanessa Bryant, the wife of the late basketball star Kobe Bryant, called out rapper Meek Mill for pointing out her husband’s helicopter death in his latest song

The Philadelphia rapper, real name Robert Rihmeek Williams, has had a backlash last week after his song “Don’t Worry (RIP Kobe)” starring rapper Lil Baby was leaked online

On the trail, Mill raps: “If I ever miss it, I’ll go out in my helicopter, it’s another Kobe”

Kobe Bryant died at the age of 41 in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California in January 2020 along with his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and seven other people

“I find this line extremely insensitive and irreverent period,” she wrote, “I don’t know any of your music, but I think you can do better. If you’re a fan, there is a better way to express your admiration for mine Man to show This lacks respect and tact “

Several people joined Vanessa Bryant’s defense, including WNBA player Candace Parker, a close friend of the Bryants

“Dear @vanessabryant, I’m sorry YOU and your GIRLS have to deal with S — like that all the time,” Parker wrote in an Instagram post shared by Vanessa Bryant

“It’s not fair, it’s not right! We love you and I am always impressed with your ability to take the road”So I’ll follow suit and tell everyone”

Mill said in a Twitter post Tuesday that he reached out to Vanessa Bryant and apologized privately instead of apologizing publicly

“Nothing I say on my side that targets a viral moment on the internet or the family of a grieving woman! If you care about someone who is grieving, change the subject!” he added

Vanessa Bryant recently spoke about her grief and the importance of holding out on an Instagram story over the past month

“Grief is a jumbled group of emotions one day you’re laughing and the next day you’re tired of being alive,” she wrote in a post shortly before the one-year anniversary of the crash

“I want to say this for people struggling with grief and heartbreaking loss. Find your reason to live I know it’s difficult. I look at my daughters and try to get them to feel that way. Death is guaranteed, the Rest of the day though, don’t find your reason “
