Seems to be real news. Basketball legend dead in helicopter crash.
WaPo political reporter in shit because she referred to Kobe's rape case and set off a shit storm
“Any public figure is worth remembering in their totality… even if that public figured is beloved and that totality unsettling,” Sonmez wrote. “That folks are responding with rage & threats toward me… speaks volumes about the pressure people come under to stay silent in these cases.”
the fact that she is suspended is sort of ridiculous
Kobe's rape case is iconic. Family Guy made jokes about it ffs.
Sonmez eventually deleted the tweets but her employer wasn’t pleased and placed her on administrative leave pending a review.
This is precisely why everyone hates the media. A man that is beloved to the World, and his 9 year old daughter are killed in a terrible plane crash, and this idiot immediately brings up a rape charge nearly 20 years ago, that he was not even convicted of? How insensitive can one get?
How can a reporter talk about Kobe Bryant and not mention the rape case?
It was probably one of the main factors in the development of the #metoo movement
Yes they most likely have. Any place Basketball is popular (which is most of Europe, Australia, and North America), the majority of people have heard of him. IN North America, if you have not heard of him, you may be living under a rock. Aside from Michael Jordan and Shaq, he probably would be next in line in terms of popularity, in terms of Basketball players over the last 25 years.
