Evan Rachel Wood posted a series of controversial tweets just a few hours after the death of NBA Great Kobe Bryant and is facing massive backlash from fans who were left heartbroken after the star player lost his life to a tragic helicopter crash in Calabasas, California on Sunday morning (Jan. 26) along with his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and seven other close friends.
Wood’s first tweet read, “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.”
“Beloveds, this was not a condemnation or a celebration. It was a reminder that everyone will have different feelings and there is room for us all to grieve together instead of fighting. Everyone has lost. Everyone will be triggered, so please show kindness and respect to all,” her second tweet read, which sparked massive outrage.
Actress Kyla Pratt, clearly annoyed by the tweets, wrote, “Evan, we met as kids & I grew up in the same industry as you and have admired your work from afar these past few years. On camera and off. But this tweet? How f—ing dare you?”
