Evan Rachel Wood called Kobe Bryan a “rapist” in an old tweet, one she sent out on the day he died, and it’s coming back to bite her now.

Vanessa Bryant took a shot at Wood on Saturday for the old tweet. She called it “slanderous” and disturbing in an Instagram story.

“Your false, insensitive, defamatory and slanderous tweet on 1/26/20 is vile and disturbing to say the least. Behavior like this is part of the reason why innocent black men go to jail for crimes they didn’t commit. An accusation doesn’t make someone guilty.”



All criminal charges brought against Kobe as a result of that 2003 sexual assault case were dropped.

For the record, Wood wrote on the day of Kobe’s death: “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.”

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
