Vanessa Bryant Slams Evan Rachel Wood for Calling Kobe a Rapist After His Death

Vanessa Bryant Slams Evan Rachel Wood for Calling Kobe a Rapist After His Death

Vanessa Bryant is speaking out in response to a tweet that Evan Rachel Wood wrote about her late husband Kobe Bryant, just hours after he tragically passed away in a helicopter crash last year.

The Westworld actress sparked tons of outrage for her tweets back in January 2020, but Vanessa is first seeing them now and decided to respond.

“What has happened is tragic. I am heartbroken for Kobe‘s family. He was a sports hero. He was also a rapist. And all of these truths can exist simultaneously,” Evan wrote in one tweet.

For those that don’t know, Kobe was accused of sexual assault back in 2003, but the charges were dropped after his accuser refused to testify. A civil case later was filed and a settlement was reached, though Kobe is presumed innocent in the eyes of the law.

Vanessa took to her Instagram Stories on Saturday (February 27) and shared a screencap of Evan‘s tweet, along with a similar tweet written by Abigail Disney.

She said, “Your false, insensitive, defamatory and slanderous tweet on 1/26/20 is vile and disturbing to say the least? Behavior like this is part of the reason why innocent black men go to jail for crimes they didn’t commit. An accusation doesn’t make someone guilty. YOU DON’T KNOW THE FACTS OF THE CASE.”
