Kobe Bryant Murals Passed Over In Wake Of Protest Of Killing Of Another Black Man At The Hands Of A Cop
Basketball great Kobe Bryant died in a helicopter crash back in January of this year. In the days following his tragic death, gorgeous murals of him have sprung up. Many also feature his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna who also perished in the crash.
Four months later, the city is in an uproar. George Floyd, another black man, has been killed because of the careless act of a white cop.
It’s been 8 days since George Floyd died in Minneapolis, Minnesota. A white cop had the audacity to put his knee in the neck of a black man, snuffing out his life, over a counterfeit $20 bill. Protest have erupted in cities across America and even in other country’s.
Black folks are fed up (and a lot of white folks too) and an uprising has caused a lot of peaceful protesting. But, there are those who are set on destroying property of business, burning cars and buildings and decorating the walls with graffiti.
Though vandalism has been rampant in L.A., vandals have so far spared the beautiful mural tributes of Kobe Bryant. Showing her appreciation, the late basketball legend’s wife Vanessa Bryant has shared untouched photos of a few of the many murals on her social media page, complete with heart emoji’s.
As reported by TMZ, those on social media a issuing threats of violence if anyone touches a Kobe mural.
Let’s hope the Kobe Bryant Murals remain untouched, ’cause the vandalism is still ongoing.
