What has happened is tragic. I am heartbroken for Kobe’s family.— #EvanRachelWould (@evanrachelwood) January 26, 2020
He was a sports hero. He was also a rapist.
And all of these truths can exist simultaneously.
Evan Rachel Wood has come under fire after tweeting a reminder that Kobe Bryant was arrested for rape in 2003.
The actress wrote, "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."
Twitter erupted in shock and anger, flooding her mentions with photos of Evan and Woody Allen (who she worked alongside for the 2009 film 'Whatever Works')
Actress Kyla Pratt also responded with disapproval:
Evan. We met as kids & I grew up in the same industry has you and have admired your work from afar these past few years. On camera and off. But this tweet? How fucking dare you?— Kyla Pratt (@KylaPratt) January 27, 2020
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.— #EvanRachelWould (@evanrachelwood) January 27, 2020
