Dre Kirkpatrick Expresses Remorse Over Kaly Ko’s Death
Cincinnati Bengals player Dre Kirkpatrick is currently in mourning over a friend’s death.
The football star recently revealed on Twitter that his friend, Ohio rapper Kaly Ko, died after he witnessed him drinking before getting behind the wheel.
Ko, real name Kory Wilson, also killed two other people after driving the wrong way on the highway.
Early Friday morning, an SUV driving the wrong way on I-75 in Cincinnati crashed into another car, instantly killing the SUV driver and the two people in the other car.
Later on Friday, Bengals cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick revealed on Twitter that the driver of the SUV was his friend and that he had been out with his friend before the crash, and that he now thinks he should have stopped his friend from drinking and driving.
“I just want y’all to know that was my friend that got killed last night. And I was with him and I knew he was drinking and didn’t stop him,” Kirkpatrick wrote in a series of tweets that have now been deleted.
“I wasn’t drinking just hanging out but i knew he wasn’t able to drive and now he is gone. . . . “Man I’m so hurt right now. bc I talk about drinking and driving all the Time and for me to leave him at that bar like that killing me. So y’all please stop the drinking and driving please bc I lost a good friend and Cincinnati lost a good man.”
After being harshly criticized for only expressing remorse over his friend’s death, he also added:
Do NOT drink and drive folks!
