@professor nightdrot- Bravo! Well said, one of the best responses ever! Don’t expect an mho from this Asker, look how you got a downvote already, pretty easy to guess who that was.. haha. But you said it, the man, Kobe, did far more good than anything else, he wil be missed and for more than just his superb athletic abulpility no matter how much this Asker thinks otherwise.
@Girther10 Thanks for your kind compliment. I do not know who gave me the down vote, but all I can say from my own perspective is that there is a certain pitilessness in those who object to giving a certain respect to Mr. Kolbe. It is symptomatic of the age.
Also, this was not a commercial airline flight. This was a privately chartered flight. Flying in a private helicopter costs more than most people can afford. This flight is repeatedly being associated with Kobe because that helicopter trip probably would not have happened if Kobe was not involved.
Rape is never excusable. Shame on you.
Shame on you @Strong_male, as I said, it wasn't proven. It was settled out of court. He wasn't found guilty, and he admitted to having sex with the girl. No money exchanged hands. So how long do we hold on to unproved allegations?
He apologised for it. You can't make excuses for rapists just because they were famous, shame on you for trying.
He apologized for misunderstanding the situation and for the girl putting herself in a bad light. There were no other accusation made against him ever again.
And shame on you for trying to shame me. I'm no rape apologist, and I don't make exceptions for anyone, celebrity or no. What I don't do is take every situation the same. Not every black man accused of rape is a rapist, famous or not, and that girl would've had him dead to rights if she'd pushed the issue. Which tells me it wasn't rape.
Someone has a crush.
Who, me? I really could care less. Basketball stars aren't my style. I'll take a good musician anyday, thanks
Well as long as he apologised for raping that girl it's fine I guess 🤮
Whatever. Like I said, don't invite me to this shit.
@Dork- well said. These haters won’t be vindicated, they just hate. Prob racists as well, what other reason would push them to fully denigrate the dead? They’re small little closed minded beings not worthy of even this much effort. @Asker I’m talking about.
I would totally agree with you but then you pulled the race card... Now I'm not gonna take you serious 🤷♂️
@BagoH- who are you talking to?
Since when it become a vilification of a black man?
@BagoH So facts don't count because I acknowledged he's black? And that false rape accusations occur more often against black men? How does that even make sense?
Ofc i read it too i know that he didn't rape. But if you want to be taken serious don't pull the race card where it's not needed or logical to do so.
@BagoH so black men are more falsely accused of rape than white men?
Why? Race is a factor, whether you agree or not
@the_man_whol_aughs are Why would i know that lol? So far we all seen tons if white men get accused of rape so don't pull the race card bs.
My fucking screen protector is making me misspell everything lol
Dude anyone can accuse anyone of anything race got nothing to do its so stupid please stop... Judge dropped the fucking case!! He didn't convict kobe did he now? So how's race a factor when a bitch accuses a man of rape and judge drops the case? +?
I heard if a white man is accused of rape then it's the accusations is true
Ah, there's the racist troll. I found him. Anyway @BagoH it's a pattern. You can't be mad people point out what they see, agree or disagree. Racism IS real and it's important that people pay attention to it. It's important to acknowledge that we don't all have the same worldview, that race IS a factor. That it matters. That it carries weight. Because then you can see and dismantle the fucked up systems in place
You're calling me racist? Really? Answer my question now dude i got you cornered better speak up lol answer my question ANSWER lol.
No, I'm not. I was calling the man who laughs racist. Please pay attention
@DorkVader lost the argument dude take the L
@DorkVader- I read his reply differently. I think the man who laughs was referencing the #metoo with the believe all women remark🤷🏻♂️
But he did include the white man remark, so idk?
And @BagoH is trying to bully, what a coward... lol
A COWARD, as if all caps demands a response... 😅😂🤣
Alright fat add how the hell am I racist?
"fat ass " damn autocorrect
@gither I don't bully and im not a coward. I swear i would bend you over and stick your both feet in your ass if you said that to me in person.
Oooh, I'm a fat ass. I think I'll cry all day. An anonymous dipshit insulted me online wah!
@DorkVader dude how did i bully you? I didn't at all lol what is this @gither10 talking about
@BagoH- thanks for making my point... 😅😂🤣
@Gither10 that's not bullying that's manhandling you for calling me a coward 🤷♂️
Haha it's funny how you try to find the smallest problems to try and insult me Whatever you say is absolutely meaning less , your just a sugar coated loser who believes that she's making the world a better place I never made a racist comment ok bitch , now shut up and go finish up your McDonald's order
Lmaooooo! You so mad, you not even making any sense. Laugh at THAT, Bitch.
Why should I be angry at someone who can understand a simple comment? 😂😂 Please your too stupid , funny and naive for me to be angry
" cannot understand "
Again, not making sense.
Now I'm convinced. You wish it were you he forced himself on.
Ok fine I. Didn't. Make. A. Racist. Comment You are trying to make me look like the villain while trying to make yourself look like a "hero" Now go finish your McDonald meal , and do something worth your pathetic useless life Ok bitch 😊
I'm with you dork, this is ridiculous..
Thanks for MHO

He paid her off and apologised publicly
No, he settled out of court as many rich people do because going through the court systems can take years and can get prohibitively expensive all the while your name is dragged through the mud so those who are rich enough to settle out of court do so. He never apologized for raping her, he apologized for cheating, if he apologized for raping her that would mean criminal charges and prison time. lots of people exploit rich people for their own gain, this is nothing new.
UPDATE: So I am a rape apologist because I can distinguish between being accused of something and being proven guilty and convicted. You make me sick.
Probably Bec your broke ass didn't have the funds to even attempt to go to one of his GAMES... BROKE ASS PIMP😂😂
Why do you assume i am broke, why do you assume i would pay money for a sport i don't even like, why you are reffering to me as a pimp? You are not from the streets, thugs ain't on gag. So adjust your language to the language normal people speak. The only thing here worth a laugh is your pathetic attempt to ridicule me based on assumtions. So the laughing stock are you. BrOkE aSs NiGgAh
This... this is fantastic. I love you 😂😂
@IAmRedThunder lol yes I'm an extreme vegan
Hahahahaha this is making my day
I hope you have a family one day and see what happens when something bad happens to one of them, You just mad Bec Noone pays attention to what a NOTHING YOU ARE, GIRLS SCREAM RAPE EVERYDAY, PEOPLE ARE MOURNING THIS "STARS" DEATH AND UOU SENDING HATE THREATS... what A BASTARD YOU ARE...🖕🖕
No, tell me how you really feel!
Tf are you talking about “Sorry not sorry, I care about my own life first “ what?By saying rip or nothing at all - it’s not going to ruin your life. Grow up
Yee, innocent until proven otherwise
Damn. Good luck. I hope his passing is as painful as possible.
@DiscomfortZone No doubt eh. These predators come in any shape and form. Rich poor famous you know. I have no sympathy.
Nor should you. In a truly humane society we would all hunt them down together, instead of glorifying them because they happen to be religious or athletes.
So were a lot of other daughters, sons, mothers, fathers etc.
True, but the public doesn’t know their names so it’s less impactful from a mass media standpoint. Thus Jobe’s name on the front page, not a Jane Doe’s.
His victims care.
That doesn't mean I have to.
Why do people wait until after their dead to start bashing others if Kobe Byrant is or was a rapist then why don't they but his dead body in jail or prison. He dead now let him rest in peace. And tell these people live with it and forget it.
Rape is wrong buddy.
@Strong (weak) male- so is convicting an innocent man in the court of public opinion, in fact it’s much worse, because of the added cowardice needed to do so... take a bow @Asker- well done...
You are so fucking rude
Really dude? This is a person I have barely heard of, how can someone I barely even heard of have worth to me? What should I do? Care about everyone?
That makes no damn sense, like everything else, caring takes mental effort, you care for the people close to you, spending mental effort to care for people you don't even know makes no sense
@cocobat You have a valid point, but you're kind of expected to express it a bit apologetically. I hadn't ever heard of him prior to his accident so wouldn't know what to think either way, and I don't consider I need to know of every 'star'. I don't admire sportsmen much.
I don't at all and I don't like lying
Lol. I like that. The lying types, the majority - don't.
Mentally Ill after rape.
She was on anti-psychotic drugs at the time of the rape and had attempted suicide multiple times before then.
Why are there so many morons who "convict" a man of rape in their own minds even though the legal system found the evidence showed he wasn't guilty?
Most certainly did. He settled out of court and apologised to his victim.
That's so sad!
@arabgoddess- Apparently @Strong_male was there when the rape occurred. How else would he know? The point is he doesn’t know. Just ignore him and this ignorant post. He says “most certainly did”... 😂🤣😅
Ah OK.. I get it now
You may have a point here - since he is black and was a sports star, he could not possibly be a rapist. It doesn't fit the narrative of anti-white-supremacy.
Are you saying black men are all rapists because that would make you racist
The foolery... ✌🏾
That’s why white guys have small dicks lol y’all mad
Paying the victim off is an admission of guilt just ask bill Cosby
Hush money is not an admission of rape. Trump didn't rape Stormy Daniels even if he did have her sign a NDA and got hush money to her.
Stormy Daniels was a prostitute not a 19 year old hotel worker. The girl settled for damages
Proof against Bryant? I'm not defending him but an accusation is not proof. Women do this every day and destroy men, careers and families.
Learn to spell. Good job nobody needs you here just as nobody needs me here. Normally people don't announce if they are leaving. You are not more important than anyone else so no need for that. Plus you have 0 mho's but that is not strange if even spelling is a bridge to far. Or new. Then you are just as this post, pathetic and miserable (in your own words)
@dbr1987 o shut up , 🙄🙄
Already did 20 hours ago. Lets keep it this way
