Bryant passed away after a helicopter carrying his daughter Gianna, himself, and several others crashed due to fog and poor visibility. Meek's line allegedly references the tragic accident and people on Twitter did not respond well.

"He really decided to sit in the studio and say that line," one user Tweeted. "Nobody in his Crew told him that wasn't ok?"

“In my opinion it was disrespectful and distasteful. A lot of people died in that accident and a lot of people are still torn up. Some people just don’t understand that it’s inappropriate,” another user said.

Other fans were upset that he chose to talk about a hero during Black History Month. Some expressed that the line just wasn't that good. "I'm not offended by the Kobe bar Meek had. S--t was just trash not offensive tho."

In January of 2020, Kobe and his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, were among the nine people who perished in the helicopter crash. After an investigation, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) claims that the pilot, Ara Zobayan, became disorientated and could not discern up from down. They say that the thick clouds caused the pilot's disorientation and they criticized him for flying in unsafe conditions.

Bryant is survived by his wife Vanessa, 38, and daughters Natalia, 18, Bianka, 4, and Capri, 1

Meek made headlines last week when he almost came to blows with Tekashi 6ix9ine outside an Atlanta club. Both rappers posted footage of the incident that showed the two stars being held back by their respective entourages. Meek hurled insults at 6ix9ine while the rainbow rapper claimed that Meek has police in his security team.

“STOP LETTING THESE RAPPERS LIE TO YOU! THEY TO TOUGH FOR SECURITY @meekmill RUNNING AROUND WITH POLICE,” Tekashi wrote in a now-deleted IG post.

Meek recently said that he was trying to keep his life low key but the 6ix9ine incident and the Kobe line managed to force the rapper back into the internet's crosshairs.
