• Vanessa Bryant called out Meek Mill over a verse in his song “Don’t Worry (RIP Kobe)”
  • Social media users urged the rapper to apologize to Vanessa
  • She was praised by Twitter users for her composure 

Social media users are urging rapper Meek Mill to apologize to basketball star Kobe Bryant's wife Vanessa after she called him out on her Instagram story over a song that references her late husband.

The controversial line that Vanessa found disrespectful was from Mill’s song “Don’t Worry (RIP Kobe).” The 38-year-old mother took to her Instagram story to criticize the lyrics: "If I ever lack, I'm goin' out with my chopper, it be another Kobe."

“Dear @meekmill, I find this line to be extremely insensitive and disrespectful. Period,” Vanessa wrote. She went on to say she was not familiar with his music, but believed that he could do better.

“If you are a fan, fine, there’s a better way to show your admiration for my husband,” she added. “This lacks respect and tact.”

Kobe and his daughter Gigi, together with seven others, died due to a helicopter crash in Calabasas on Jan. 26, 2020.

Vanessa's Instagram story caught the attention of several Twitter users, with many urging the rapper to apologize to the former. They also expressed dismay over Mill’s lyrics.

“Really Meek Mill? Really? Why wouldn’t you people let Vanessa Bryant have peace?” a Twitter user replied on the thread. “Has that woman not been through enough?”

“Not even 20 minutes after Vanessa made her post,” a Twitter user wrote. “You need to be apologizing Meek.”

“Omg, I just realized that Meek is stupid enough to record a diss track towards Vanessa Bryant,” another Twitter user wrote.

Some Twitter users also praised Vanessa’s response to Mill.

“Vanessa Bryant got Meek Mill together in the most respectful way!” a Twitter user replied on the viral thread. “I still don’t understand how he [Mill] thought [of] using Kobe’s death for a metaphoric punch line was okay.”

Mill collaborated with Lil Baby for the song “Don’t Worry (RIP Kobe),” Philly Voice reported. The song reportedly leaked online on Feb. 17, according to Revolt.
