Vanessa Bryant Thanks Los Angeles For 'Saving' Kobe & Gigi Murals During Protests

By Mike Walters

Kobe Bryant's wife, Vanessa, is thanking the citizens of Los Angeles for sparing the beautiful murals all over the city of her husband and daughter -- even as many other buildings and areas of the city were targeted during the protests.

Vanessa Byant took to her Instagram story to share a video of a local newscast showing firefighters working to save a building in the Fairfax area of Los Angeles.

In the clip, the reporter explains a massive mural of the NBA legend and his daughter had been saved on the side of a neighboring building.

Vanessa went on to share a bunch of murals that popped up all over the city after the Los Angeles Lakers star and his daughter tragically died in a helicopter crash.

In the photos, you can see that none of the pieces of art have been touched, destroyed or even tagged on during the several days of protests."

"They know Kobe is off limits," one post read after a person posted a picture of it without a scratch.

Incredibly, despite many areas of Los Angeles being tagged to support justice for George Floyd, none of the Kobe and Gigi murals were touched.

In the past few days, Vanessa has been vocal about how Kobe felt about racism and police brutality in this country -- and even shared a photo of him wearing an 'I Can't Breathe' shirt from several years ago.

"My husband wore this shirt years ago and yet here we are again.💔#ICANTBREATHE," she captioned the photo taken in 2014.

Kobe wore the shirt during a Laker's game warm-up and on the bench to protest the death of Eric Garner, a black man who was killed in New York after a police officer grabbed him around the neck. He also cried out at the time, "I can't breathe."

Vanessa continued, "Life is so fragile. Life is so unpredictable. Life is too short. Let’s share and embrace the beautiful qualities and similarities we all share as people. Drive out hate. Teach respect and love for all at home and school. Spread LOVE. Fight for change- register to VOTE. Do not use innocent lives lost as an excuse to loot. BE AN EXAMPLE OF THE CHANGE WE WANT TO SEE. #BLACKLIVESMATTER ❤️."

On Tuesday morning, Vanessa joined in the social media "Blackout" by posting a solid black square on her Instagram.
