Vanessa Bryant criticises Meek Mill for 'insensitive' Kobe Bryant rap lyric
"I believe you can do better than this."
Vanessa Bryant has criticised the rapper Meek Mill for an 'insensitive' lyric he wrote referencing Kobe Bryant.
In his latest song 'Don't Worry (RIP Kobe)', Meek rapped about the late basketball legend, with Vanessa Bryant taking offense to one line in particular.
The line in question was "If I ever lack, I'm goin' out with my chopper, it'll be another Kobe."
Addressing the controversial lyric on her Instagram page, Bryant said: "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."
When fans accused Meek Mill of posting a disrespectful Tweet aimed at the Bryant family, he clarified that this particular tweet was not directed at Vanessa.
He said: "I apologised to her in private earlier today not to the public... Nothing I say on my page is directed to a internet viral moment or the family of a grieving woman. If you care about someone grieving change the subject."
Kobe Bryant died in a helicopter crash in January of 2020, where nine people passed away, including his daughter Gianna.
