Remembering Kobe Bryant’s Rape Case
Kobe Bryant won an Oscar on Sunday and it was a glorious moment for a lot of people. He’s now a five-time NBA champion and has as many Oscars as Leonardo DiCaprio. However, there’s one problem. And it’s a big one. Does it really show the work of the Me Too movement if Kobe is out here getting awards? There are a lot of people who don’t think so.
If you recall, Kobe was accused of rape back in 2003. The accuser had injuries consistent with rape. Kobe admitted to having sex with her, and later said in a letter that “I now understand how she feels that she did not consent to this encounter.” There are a lot more angles here to talk about so follow the tweets and revisit the case.
