It seems to me that the first reporter's Freudian Slip was showing, and that the second one was just being insensitive.

I am not the least bit surprised that you interjected racism into this.


I didn't use the word "race" you did. I used the word prejudiced as there is no other reason they would do these things unless they had something against Kobe Bryant

Yeah I accept she probably did, although it means the word was part of her vocabluary, just bad timing I guess.

The other one deserves to be suspended from the Washington Post, incredible bad taste.

I think he claimed "consensual" whereas the girl claimed rape (shades of the Aziz Ansari case). It was thrown out of court for lack of evidence (and rightly so) but some females can't let it go.

No not really, this is a news thread and I posted news stories related to Kobe Bryant's tragic death and how some people lack any empathy for his family

Who lacks empathy for Kobe's family? My God, his wife lost a daughter and husband ... and it's likely that she knew everyone on the helicopter. It's incomprehensibly tragic.

Ask the female reporter and actress who thought it would be a good idea to rub the grieving family's faces in the sand

.... And the male reporters who thought it prudent to show photos of the explosion.

If I were Vanessa I'd be drugged up in psychiatric care because of that. ^
